By using the clip, it is possible to achieve a joint dimension of 6 mm. The clip was designed so that it does not rest flat on the substructure (= SS), but instead is 4 mm away from the SS. The constructional wood protection allows for rear ventilation of the façade, which is not the case with any of the usual products. Rear ventilation results in better drying when the façade is exposed to rain, and water can run off between the clip and substructure. The constructional measures increase the façade’s service life.
