CSI offers a variety of building envelope products for walls and siding to promote moisture drainage and ventilation, as well as roofing products to promote proper ventilation. Not only does our building component products respect the industry’s evolving building practices, they also work in conjunction with our stone veneer and panelized stone siding products. Our quality line of building components products from Boral® and Keene Building Products are ideal to incorporate in your next construction project.

Boral™ Drain-N-Dry™ with DELTA®-DRY technology is an innovative system that reinvents the process of draining and drying wall systems. Drain-N-Dry™ combines 3 critical products into a single, high-performance system.
This system requires less fasteners and fewer penetrations, and it seamlessly integrates a chemical and corrosion resistant fiberglass lath, a 10mm rainscreen and a secondary water-resistant barrier into a individual 150-square foot light weight rolls. Boral™ Drain-N-Dry™ Lath is easy to cut, and actually reduces your installation time to help you quickly deliver a final product that will last the test of time.
Galvanized Metal Lath is the perfect solution when installing manufactured and natural stone veneers. Our Galvanized Metal Lath products are made from prime quality steel sheets that are slit and expanded to form diamond shaped openings (over 11,000 per square yard).
This large number of openings provide more plaster keys than any other type of lathing material, and allows for better bonding in either pumped or troweled applications. Each sheet of Galvanized Metal Lath have square ends and smooth parallel edges, allowing for fast and easy handling and installation. For further convenience, our metal lath products can be easily cut or readily bent for applying over curved surfaces.
All Metal Lath products are tested for USA building code, are evaluated by ICC-ES, and meet the rigid ASTM C847 standards.
Driwall™ Rainscreen is a drainage mat for exterior wall systems. The entangled net product eliminates incidental moisture problems in most exterior veneer applications, including manufacture stone, natural stone, siding, thin veneer, brick veneer, stucco, and other masonry applications.
With the increase in building “tightness” for thermal protection, moisture problems are on the rise, causing a greater need for hydrostatic pressure release and a ventilation method. The full-wall DriwalI™ Rainscreen product rolls over the Water-resistive barrier to separate it from the exterior veneer. The airspace that DriwalI™ Rainscreen creates increases airflow through the wall cavity, allowing the wall to breathe and stay dry. The end result: a dry, mold-free wall system. Driwall™ Rainscreen meets Canadian code requirement.
The perfect finishing solution for most Rainscreen wall assemblies. DrainAway® perforated drainage strip is an “L” shaped galvanized steel drainage strip. Its perforated bottom ledge allows for proper ventilation and vertical drainage of moisture along the base of a wall cavity.
Easy to install, DrainAway® is suitable for both commercial and residential use, and can be used in conjunction with many exterior claddings including: manufactured stone veneer, natural stone veneer, thin brick slices, wood, vinyl, cedar, stucco and cementitious siding products.
Driwall™ Mortar Deflection products are designed to catch and hold mortar droppings. Driwall™ Mortar Deflection can be used for both commercial and residential projects, and allow moisture to pass through masonry and stone cavity walls.
Debris is collected above the flashing and below the face of the interior wall, in order to allow moisture to flow through to the weep holes. Driwall™ Mortar Deflection does not absorb water, and prevents mold.
Driwall™ Weep Screed is a commercial weep screed for masonry cavity walls. Driwall™ Weep Screed is used as a flashing and weep when paired with a weather-resistant barrier or building paper and Driwall™ Rainscreen.
It provides a clean termination for stucco, manufactured stone and thin natural stone veneer at the bottom of the wall. The unique “V”- shape allows migration of moisture down the screed and away from the wall. This product is required by all major building codes & the International Building Code at the bottom of all framed walls.
CDR Vent™ (Complete Drained Roof) is a drainage and ventilation mat designed to eliminate moisture and moisture vapor in roofing and siding applications. It is useful in cedar shingle/shake roofing and siding where a clean airspace is desired for ventilation and drainage.
KeeneStone™ Cut products are designed to catch and hold mortar droppings, while allowing moisture to pass through and drain out of the wall. The product suspends mortar droppings above the weep holes to prevent the drainage channels from becoming blocked or clogged.
Easy-Fur™ from Keene Building Products is an entangled polymer net furring strip that creates a cutting edge rainscreen and venting system behind wood and fiber-cement siding. Easy-Fur™’s unique design allows for the fastest installation of any furring strip on the market, because it can be rolled on to the wall and easily cut to length.
