Mataverde Thermowood Approved for Climate-Shield Rain Screen

Written by on

We have been testing and evaluating thermally modified woods for some time now and have found it to be a unique wood siding product with exceptional stability. Thermowood was developed and tested in Scandinavia more than 20 years ago.  Thermowood technology permanently modifies the cell walls of ordinary woods to create a sustainable siding material with great looks and remarkable performance. Because of its unique performance, stability and durability, Mataverde Thermowood has been approved for use with the Climate-Shield Rain Screen System.

Mataverde Thermowood is real wood - the innovative steaming and drying process adds no chemicals or toxins to the wood. What you are left with is a thermally modified wood that performs admirably, for interior or exterior exterior use. Mataverde Thermowood siding is a sustainable natural hardwood cladding solution for rain screen projects. The thermowood process makes the woods very stable (little expansion and contraction) and very durable (the process cooks the sugars out of the original wood) making it very resistant to mold, insects, rot and decay.


Over the past ten years, Climate-Shield has rapidly become the mostly widely specified wood rainscreen system in North America. The high performance of the marine grade aluminum components for Climate-Shield rain screen clips, starter rails, attachment channels and outside corners are designed to withstand the forces of nature and the test of time. Climate-Shield’s design flexibility, reliable fastening for a variety of both residential and commercial wall assemblies has caught the attention of many of the most widely respected architectural design firms.

When you add a long-lasting, all natural wood cladding as the façade for the Climate-Shield rain screen system, the entire wall assembly is both naturally beautiful and enduring. Mataverde Thermowood meets the mark as a durable and desirable cladding option for this high-performance rain screen system. Using Mataverde Thermowood siding with the Climate-Shield system allows architects and designers to creatively incorporate the warmth and natural appearance of real wood into their designs.
