NV1

Details

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 pre-punched fixed and flexible point holes.

Nvelope flexible point brackets absorb wind loading and allow for expansion and contraction.

Nveloped fixed point brackets absorb vertical dead loads.

Nvelope bracket spacing is determined by cladding design options such as the dimensions and weight of the facade cladding, local wind loads, cladding zone and substrate.

Applications

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 which it can be fixed are:

  • Fiber cement
  • High pressure laminate (HPL)
  • ACM
  • Metal rainscreen panels

Features

  • Manufactured from extruded aluminium alloys conforming to EN 573-3 (material) and EN 755 production standards

Project Checklist

Details

Project Checklist – Each facade is different

Use our project checklist to specify a project specific exterior cladding solution. The requirements for each façade and cladding system are always different and depend on factors such as local wind loads, height of the façade, substrate being fixed to, selected cladding material and the cladding zone. All NVELOPE cladding systems can be engineered to project specific requirements. Unlock your scheme by completing and submitting the NVELOPE project checklist (ideally accompanied with elevation and plan autoCAD drawings, indicating your proposed cladding requirements). This will allow us to prepare a project specific cladding solution that includes static calculations and setting out information for the support system, thermal calculations and indicative m² price.

Static Calculations – Dynamic Forces

A static calculation assesses dynamic forces e.g. wind load and dead loads (weight of the cladding) under project circumstances. In engineering, static systems do not move or change state – therefore a static calculation ensures that under a given set of circumstances the system (mix of brackets and components) will not move and it will support the load that it is intended to support.

Thermal Calculations – Bridging the thermal gap

The 2010 revision to Part ‘L’ places specific emphasis on the performance of the building details and the additional losses through linear thermal bridging. The thermal value of NVELOPE brackets has been calculated. Thermal bridges cause increased flow of heat and should be taken into consideration when designing a façade or façade system. Since the anchoring for ventilated cladding must go through the thermal insulation into the substrate thermal bridging cannot be avoided. NVELOPE NV and NH brackets are pre-assembled with thermal isolators – isolators help reduce thermal bridging. The additional heat loss for each m² of a detail is known as the PSI value and this additional heat loss is dependent upon the type of detail, the thermal conductivity of the cladding materials and the quality of the detail design and installation.

Nvelope have created a simple two step enquiry wizard that will generate a Nvelope Project Checklist exclusively tailored to your project. To complete the following simple steps you will need the following information on your project.

  • contact details
  • project name and location
  • facade type
  • facade weight
  • average panel size
  • building height and storey height
  • substrate type
  • fixing method
  • cladding zone (distance from substrate to cladding)
