• NV2 is the Nvelope system for secret fix / structural bonding applications – Vertical cladding applications.
  • 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.


NV2 is suitable for secret fix cladding applications – structurally bonding (SikaTack Panel System) elements to fibre cement, high pressure laminate (HPL), aluminium composite material (ACM) or metal rainscreen panels.

Standard product features


Manufactured from extruded aluminium alloys conforming to BS EN 573–3 (material) and BS EN 755 (production).


A polyvinyl chloride (PVC) isolator can be located between the Nvelope bracket and the face of the substrate being fixed to.


NV brackets (V):

Allows adjustment between back of chosen facade and face of substrate material including Nvelope isolator (5 mm).
