Climate-Shield rainscreen products are widely recognized as the leading solution for wood rainscreen design since 2011. Their precise engineering and marine grade aluminum components are the pride of the industry. The new CSTZTR is a trim and support piece designed for use over the top of a flanged window.

The CSTZTR aluminum support piece is matte black in color. It supports the bottom of a cut piece of Pura siding above the window. It has a Z profile so that it sits over the window flange, not on it. The CSTZ screws into the sheathing above the window flange. The screws do not perforate the window flange or affect the flashing. This keeps your building envelope intact and weather tight. The Climate-Shield Trespa Z trim component may be used for horizontal or vertical Pura NFC siding installations.

The Climate-Shield CSTSR8 Starter Rail is the perfect way to start your first course of Pura NFC siding. Once you set the CSTSR8 horizontal starter rail level, all your subsequent courses of siding will line up perfectly.  The starter rail component installs quickly and has weep holes to allow any bulk water to drain out of the rainscreen cavity.

Climate-Shield CSTVSR8 is an 8 foot long starter rail to align your first Pura siding planks vertically

Pura NFC siding planks are ten feet long. So, for vertical walls ten feet tall (or shorter), the CSTVSR8 vertical starter rail and the CST1 rainscreen clips are the only Climate-Shield components you’ll need to install Pura NFC siding. If you are vertically cladding a wall over ten feet tall, you will need to add a joint somewhere.


The Climate-Shield CSTVPS vertical plank support is made for this jobIt allows you set to a bottom support for individual Pura planks.  The plank support is 6" long and is pre-drilled for quick installation. It is already cut to the right length, so you don't have to.  This component is ideal, especially if you want to stagger the joint pattern on your wall.
