Vented Skin

A vented skin, or rainscreen, is classified as an exterior wall system that provides and air gap between the outer skin, and moisture barrier. A main benefit of a vented skin in Phoenix is that it is a great solar radiation reflector. The heat that accumulates on the surface is not conducted to the underlying layers and the heat escapes due to the stack ventilation of the air gap. Other benefits include the increased durability of the building structure due to the air gap that prevents moisture from spreading inward and creating rot and mold, and the ability for moisture to escape the interior due to the air pressure difference created by the cavity.
