The last thing any homeowner wants is for their walls to be damaged from mold or excess moisture. One of the best ways to prevent this kind of damage from happening is by installing a rainscreen system in your walls. Quarrix provides exceptional products for this kind of system, one of which is their ProTect Furring Strips.
ProTect Furring Strips are made of a highly durable High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic that is resistant to mold, mildew, warping and splitting. They are specially designed to keep moisture out of your walls. The strips are equipped with small air channels that let moisture escape easily and air flow in all directions to keep the wall dry.
Installation of the product is quite simple, as the strips are easy to cut and can be installed vertically and horizontally. Each piece you get is dimensionally die-cut, so the pieces are always identical. ProTect Furring Strips are installed behind cladding. An installation guide can be found here, though we recommend calling a professional to help with the installation process.
Exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS)
With ProTect Furring strips, you don’t have to worry about the walls of your home being damaged by mold, moisture or pests. You can rest easy and let the rain screen system keep your walls dry.
