The Stucco RainScreen Panel™ manufactured by Korax Technologies Inc. is designed to ensure that the wall assembly which incorporates this panel is a true vented rain screen wall which satisfies current standards of cavity wall construction. The Panel ensures that any water which enters into the cavity of the panel will be directed to move down the inside face of the panel and then be vented to the atmosphere via weep holes or dry out by means of cross ventilation caused by the weep and vent holes. Korax warrants for ten years that the Panel will prevent water damage to the exterior wall assembly subject to the following terms, conditions and limitations:
