To eliminate any disruption to a buildings exterior appearance, NVELOPE Rainscreen Systems Ltd, the market leader in rainscreen cladding support systems, has introduced a range of vertical and horizontal cladding support systems which allow façades to be installed with no visible fixing.
The cladding industry is under pressure to specify and install Rainscreen systems which provide an overall flawless appearance and meet the relevant thermal bridging requirements set out in the Building Regulations. NEVLOPE understands the importance of providing a system that satisfies these demands and offers contactors a cost effective, easy to install products that can adapt to any building design. The NV vertical and NH Horizontal brackets are versatile and flexible, both key drivers in façade design and cladding systems.
With constant changes and improvements taking place in cladding materials technology and design, architects and specifiers have the opportunity of greater choice and aesthetic variety, explains Mike Smith, NVELOPEs Sales and Marketing Director. It is also tasking contractors with the need to deliver an effective, reliable and long-lasting cladding solution, whatever the façade material, its application and aesthetic configuration. Our brackets tick all the boxes that are required by all parties involved in the project.
Both the NV and the NH ranges provide a secure fixing solution for façade materials including high pressure laminate (HPL), timber, weatherboard, fibre cement, fibre concrete, ceramic, thin stone, aluminium composite material (ACM) and many other metals. They are available pre-assembled with thermal isolators to help reduce thermal bridging and also prevent a chemical reaction which could occur between the aluminium bracket and the line in a concrete frame. Stand off sizes for the vertical range are from 40 300 mm and for the horizontal range are from rom 70 300 mm.
The NVELOPE T and L profiles are secured using support brackets which are connected through a series of fixed and flexible points an arrangement that enables absorption of wind loading while also allowing for expansion and contraction in the structure and the facades deadload.
The vertical NV bracket can be flipped 90 degrees, allowing the pocket in the bracket to have an NH support arm or NVELOPE horizontal brace bar inserted for horizontal application. The NH system can be optimised when the panels that need supporting are tall or are randomly placed in the façade design. The NH system provides a cost-effective and versatile support system for all types of cladding layout - whatever the application.
Manufactured in the UK and developed using the highest specification alloys, NVELOPE products and systems are ideal for supporting a wide variety of façade materials.
