Where clever engineering meets maximum design flexibility. We provide solutions in the form of thermally isolated cladding support systems. 

Associated with:
Through thoughtful engineering culminated from 35+ years of industry experience, CLADIATOR® manufactures thermally broken cladding support systems that keep sustainability & design flexibility at the forefront – our products are universal solutions that help build energy-efficient buildings & structures.

We provide architects, engineers, industry professionals, general contractors, and sub-contractors working on building envelopes the best possible long-term thermal performance and ease-of-mind installation methods. See below to learn why we do what we do, and how we encompass The Rainscreen Principle with our solutions.

Our Products


Adjustable. Engineered, Thermally Efficient

The CL-300 System accommodates continuous insulation applications while simultaneously achieving true rainscreen principles. Our system offers an adjustable approach to all types of cladding materials.


Simple. Secure. Slotted

The Slotted-Z is a Fiberglass Z-Girt that accommodates continuous insulation applications while achieving true rainscreen principles. Our RocketStick® provides securement means for any/all types of insulation.

How it works

What is the Rainscreen Principle?

The rainscreen principle is an approach to building envelope design that manages moisture by providing a space between the exterior cladding of a building and the underlying water-resistant barrier.

This space, known as the air gap or cavity, allows for the drainage and ventilation of any water that may penetrate the cladding, thus preventing moisture from entering the interior of the building.

Usually, within this cavity, exterior insulation is installed to allow for the Continuous Insulation of the building. CLADIATOR® upholds this Rainscreen Principle by providing greater opportunity for cavity space, increased egress for moisture management, and an optional patented insulation securement method.

Reducing the number of penetrations to the water-resistive barrier by utilizing our patented insulation securement technology is just one of the many reasons to be a CLADIATOR®.

What other experts say

“I am very impressed with Cladiator materials. The slotted zee is lightweight, easy to install and removes the necessity for stick pins.

The slots allow for ventilation and drainage should moisture build or if system is rainscreen.

Additionally, Cladiators has been instrumental in assisting our firm with the design phase of a very large complex project and found a solution to a problem we had with large spans between anchorage points in the main structure.

Cladiators STS system easily overcam this problem and the project could move forward.

In the future, Cladiators will be my “first stop” when I shop.”

Fred Slade
Project Manager

“We installed the CL-Talon 300 system in only 3 days, whereas with traditional installation, it would have taken 2 weeks. We are very impressed with the speed and simplicity of the system.”

“I’m impressed and I think that this product will soon become standard in the inudstry”
