Knight Wall Systems has introduced a new horizontal-girt rainscreen attachment system called HCI-System that enables ASHRAE 90.1-compliant continuous insulation with vertical cladding.

The HCI-System is a stiffened, ventilated horizontal rail (girt) that can span up to 32 inches on center. Roll-formed in-house at Knight’s Eastern Washington fabrication plant, the 3/4-inch-thick attachment system is available in 16- or 18-gauge Galvalume (standard or black Fluropon finish) or stainless steel. As with the original CI-System rain screen, should a secondary rail be needed, Knight produces additional standard or custom HCI-System rails for a variety of cladding types.

Designed for rain screens with fiber cement, metal-panel and aluminum composite material (ACM) cladding, among others, the HCI-System can be used both stand-alone and in conjunction with Knight’s CI-System, affording any building envelope project a great deal of flexibility.

Knight Wall Systems Inc. is a subsidiary of Knight Construction and Supply Inc., in business since 1968, serving commercial, industrial and institutional customers throughout the US. The firm has more than 100 employees at its eastern Washington headquarters and manufacturing facility.
