What are the main benefits of re-facing a building with a decorative glass rainscreen?
There are multiple functional and aesthetic benefits to choosing a Bendheim Wall Systems’ glass rainscreen: from the ability to completely transform the appearance of a building through elegant decorative glass, to ease of installation and maintenance.
Among the main benefits of a glass rainscreen is protection against the elements. Water is the most significant factor in the premature deterioration of a building, and each of Bendheim’s tested rainscreen systems offers an effective envelope solution to moisture penetration. Even when the building’s substructure is made of wood, the glass can protect and ensure its stability and performance for hundreds of years. Bendheim rainscreen systems also accommodate the use of weatherproof membranes behind the glass in combination with opaque glass varieties.
Bendheim Wall Systems, rainscreens can dramatically change the appearance of an otherwise structurally sound building and preserve it for years to come. Installing a decorative glass rainscreen over the existing facade is a far less costly process than traditional demolition, repair, and re-glazing of exterior skins. It can be installed without accessing the building interior, disrupting occupants, or interrupting normal building operations.
