  • NV1 is the NVELOPE back frame – vertical cladding applications.
  • NVELOPE® ‘T’ and ‘L’ profiles are fixed using NVELOPE helping hand support brackets, fixed through a series of fixed and flexible points.
  • NVELOPE® flexible point brackets absorb wind loading and allow for expansion and contraction.
  • NVELOPE® fixed-point brackets absorb both vertical dead loads.
  • NVELOPE® bracket spacing is determined by cladding options such as the dimensions and weight of the facade cladding, local wind loads and cladding zone.


Suitable as a back frame system (NV1 is the basis of all NVELOPE® Rainscreen Systems) – NV1 is suitable for face fixing/ rivet fixing cladding elements to (e.g. fibre cement, high pressure laminate (HPL), aluminium composite material (ACM) and metal rainscreen panels).
