For use with Fibre Cement, High Pressure Laminates, Thin Stone, and more!


  • NV3 is the NVELOPE system for concealed fix/mechanically fixed vertical cladding applications
  • Panels are 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 hangers and adjustable hangers.
  • NVELOPE ‘T’ and ‘L’ profiles are fixed using NVELOPE support brackets, fixed through a series of fixed and flexible points.
  • 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 façade cladding, local wind loads.
  • NVELOPE flexible point brackets absorb wind loading and allow for expansion and contraction.
