Interesting batten product for rain screen installations:

From the desk of Alex Vondeling

It’s made from 100% recycled material, is recyclable, in addition to making a good building detail. That being said the recycled material is vinyl (pvc) from old windows. Living Building Challenge won’t allow us to use that material, even though it’s recycled – as it doesn’t discourage the use by manufacturers in the first place (one could make the same argument about fly ash and slag – although the alternative here, wood, is considerably less impactful than using Portland cement). You can make your own call. More info
