  • Roll out Gravity Cavity™ rainscreen drainage plane/drainage mat over the WRB on the backup wall with spunbond fabric facing the weather. Back wrap 4’’ fabric on bottom course to act as bug screen.
  • Temporarily attach Gravity Cavity rainscreen drainage plane/drainage mat with hammer stapler on wood backup walls or dabs of adhesive on masonry. 
  • Roll out second and succeeding courses of Gravity Cavity™.  Overlap only the fabric.  Plastic butts directly to top of course beneath it.
