- About MTI
A predictable rainscreen air gap behind fiber cement sidings like Hardie Plank® and Hardie Shingle® adds durability to the exterior. MTI's Sure Cavity™ and Corrugated Lath Strip™ create a capillary break that prevents entrapped water and promotes airflow to dry out the siding and substrate.
Sure Cavity™ drainage mat features rigid channels and a built-in bug screen. Sure Cavity lays flat on the sheathing and reduces nail drive-through for easier installation and superior appearance.
Corrugated Lath Strip™ vented furring strips are installed over the framing. Fasten siding through Corrugated Lath Strip for a predictable vented space. Lightweight, low-cost, and rigid.
Water at the base of the wall needs an exit strategy. With frequent holes for drainage and ventilation, MTI Vented Edge Metal enables the rainscreen wall to dry to its fullest potential.
