Ipe Vertical Rain Screen Installation

Written by on

An Ipe wood rainscreen looks terrific when installed vertically. Check out the Ipe vertical rain screen installation pictures below. Ipe hardwood siding and the Climate-Shield rain Screen System were selected for this ipe rain screen project in Manzanita, Oregon. The choice of the 1x4 ipe siding accomplishes two major purposes on this project; first of all, the crisp vertical lines add a very sleek looking vertical accent and secondly, the narrower width adds significantly stability in a vertical rain screen installation.

Because it lasts so long and looks great for decades, Ipe siding is an excellent choice of wood cladding for a rainscreen system. The narrower width of this Ipe siding makes installation much easier, is incredibly stable and has a great visual appeal. The Climate-Shield Rain Screen System used on this project is engineered to withstand 200 MPH hurricane winds.
