Furring Strips Are Suited for Open-joint Cladding Systems

Benjamin Obdyke has redesigned its Batten UV furring strips with improved compression resistance suited to open-joint cladding systems. The new Batten UV strips are designed to maintain a 3/8-inch space even with the screw-fastening required for composite decking, which is often used to create trendy open-joint cladding systems. The compression resistance mimics that of a wood furring strip but with the added benefits of airflow and moisture resistance. Batten UV features a notched design that provides multidirectional airflow to help keep the wall cavity dry and allow drainage in rainscreen applications. As with the original Batten UV, the new product is designed to be UV-stable, so it’s suitable for use behind open-joint cladding systems where exposure is greater than that of traditional siding installations.
