IntelliWrap Air Barrier (by IMETCO)
Uncontrolled air flow takes a tremendous toll on a building and its occupants. IntelliWrap vapor-permeable air barrier and water resistive barrier (WRB) membranes promote a wall cavity in which water vapor can be effectively managed, which is particularly important in regions where seasonal humidity and temperatures fluctuate.
Air barrier membranes offer installers several advantages over fluid-applied air barriers, including ease and consistency of installation. IMETCO offers a number of air barrier membrane solutions for the IntelliScreen complete rainscreen wall system.
Stone Wool Continuous Insulation (by ROXUL)
Stone wool-based insulation, produced by ROXUL, is made from natural stone and recycled content which gives it thermal efficiency and fire-resistant properties that other insulation can’t match. It repels water, remains dimensionally stable, and does not propagate mold growth.
Vented Horizontal Hat Channel (by IMETCO)
IMETCO’s vented hat channel is made of 18-gauge galvanized steel. It is installed horizontally directly on the stone wool insulation, fastening into the metal studs to create the 1-inch air cavity that is crucial to effective performance of the rainscreen system.
A series of precisely placed 0.2″ x 1.75″ slots (27% open) allow air to circulate behind the panels, creating the convection needed to dry any moisture present in the wall cavity. Optional vertical struts are also available.

A variety of panel profiles, materials, colors, and finishes
