The Climate-Shield Rain Screen Clip fastens the top of each piece of wood siding while also fastening to the bottom of the wood siding material in the next course of siding.  This simple yet secure rain screen siding system is fast, rugged and highly effective. 


Simply install your first course of wood siding level and then install your next courses of wood siding from this secure and level base.  There is no need to waste wood siding materials by cutting your wood siding to fit 16" furring strips- simply install a rain screen clip at the end each piece of siding and let it "share the rain screen clip" with the next piece of wood siding.

Just look at how rugged and secure the Climate-Shield Rain Screen Clip is compared to other rain screen clips. 

As you can see from the photo, other rain screen clips require the use of furring strips to create the proper 3/4" spacing for the ventilated wall cavity that is needed for proper moisture management.  

The wide mounting flange of the Climate-Shield Rain Screen Clip also provides a sturdy base to ensure that your wood siding is properly seated.

  • The two stainless steel fastening screws of the Climate-Shield rain screen clip provide a much sturdier base.
  • Climate-Shield Rain Screen Clips eliminate the extra cost and inconsistent spacing of furring strips
  • Climate-Shield Rain Screen Clips eliminate the labor costs required for furring strip rain screen installations. On a two man rain screen siding job, that could mean savings of up to 16 man hours.
  • There is no need to slow down or waste material by cutting the end of each piece of wood siding. When using the Climate-Shield Rain Screen Clip, simply place a rain screen clip at the end of each piece of wood siding and move along to the next piece of siding.
