NVELOPE’s Project Checklist Cuts Specification Time for Architects
NVELOPE Rainscreen Systems, one of the market leaders in rainscreen cladding support systems, has introduced a new and updated version of their online project checklist design and pricing service which provides a complete, project-specific cladding solution for architects with a very fast turnaround.
Architects simply need to access the project checklist section on NVELOPE’s website and complete the simple two step data entry process. This demands project information on facade type, facade weight, average panel size, building height and storey height, substrate type, fixing method and cladding zone. They can then submit this information together with their elevation and plan AutoCAD drawings.
NVELOPE’s technical support team will provide a full project checklist response detailing the static calculations and setting out information for the support system, thermal calculations and indicative m² price.
"Every facade is different," says Mike Smith, sales and marketing director at NVELOPE. "The requirements for each façade depend on a variety of factors, such as local wind loads, façade height, the fixing substrate, the selected cladding material and the cladding zone. Our project checklist design and pricing software will significantly speed up the cladding specification process for architects, providing them with a detailed design to meet their precise requirements. No other company in rainscreen cladding support systems can offer such a reliable, precise and time-saving service."
NVELOPE supplies a versatile, quick to specify and simple to install, BBA certified range which is manufactured in the UK. Developed using the highest specification alloys, NVELOPE products and systems are ideal for supporting a wide variety of facade materials. These include high pressure laminate (HPL), timber, weatherboard, fibre cement, fibre concrete, ceramic, thin stone, aluminium composite material (ACM) and other metals. NVELOPE offer a wide variety of solutions for visible and concealed fix (both structural and mechanical) applications.
The company’s range of rainscreen brackets and grid systems can be optimised for specific projects thanks to the expertise of its technical design support service. This ensures that NVELOPE can add real value to the design process, bringing architects and specifiers real freedom with an almost infinite range of facade appearance and layout options.
