NV3 System


  • NV3 is the NVELOPE® system for secret fix/ mechanically fixed applications.
  • Secured using hangers and undercut stud anchors or screws to provide a concealed fixing.
  • Horizontal NVELOPE® channel profiles are fixed to the vertical profiles. Rainscreen panels are hung from and secured to the horizontal profiles with adjustable and fixed hangers.
  • 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.


NV3 is suitable for mechanical secret fix cladding applications – fibre cement, high pressure laminate (HPL), ceramics or thin stone.
