NVELOPE NV1 vertical face fastened system

NV1 is the NVELOPE back frame system for vertical cladding applications 

NV1 provides optimal support for face-attachment and rivet-attachment cladding elements including fiber cement, high-pressure laminate (HPL), ACM and metal rainscreen panels. NV1 is the basis of all NVELOPE support systems.


  • NV1 is the NVELOPE back frame for vertical cladding applications. 
  • NVELOPE 'T' and 'L' profiles are attached using NVELOPE support brackets, secured 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.


  • Manufactured from extruded aluminum alloy 6005A-T6.


  • British Board of Agreement 
  • Meets the compliance requirements of ASHRAE 90.1 and NFPA 285.


  • NVELOPE brackets: allows adjustment between the face of the primary support to outer face of vertical profile.
  • Thermal isolators: hard PVC isolator assembled as standard (located between the NVELOPE bracket and the primary structural support system).
