Facade & Rainscreen Facade Support Systems
We are experienced innovators, delivering pragmatic solutions in façade and rainscreen façade support systems, since the 1980s. Partnering with the key façade manufacturers, we provide high-quality products for the best value.
AMS offers rail length optimization (cut to length off-site) and split boxes to supply the precise numbers of brackets, when they are required. We simplify the complexity of façade applications and are able to support almost any genre. Our installer-friendly systems are tried and tested.
Our safe and versatile rainscreen cladding brackets and support systems are approved and optimized for value, enabling clients to buy with complete confidence. Ahead of the curve, we listen to our architectural, engineering and façade installation partners – anticipating 'what's next' while delivering safe and practical solutions.
Anodization and Polyester Powder Coating are available for both brackets and rails. Now exporting to three continents, our reach is far and impactful. Nvelope content is BIM level 2 compliant.
Aluminium Brackets and Rails – Fire Safety Information
NVELOPE rainscreen cladding support brackets and rails are made of non-combustible, sustainable aluminium, which does not burn.
Our Nvelope Rainscreen Systems Ltd BBA Assessment 09/4678 describes:
Behavior in relation to fire — in respect of reaction to fire, the systems may be regarded as having a class 0 or ‘low risk’ surface in accordance with the national Building Regulations. Our Aluminium Bracket and rails have a fire rating of A1 – non-combustible and offers no contribution to fire.
Finding the Right Solution for Your Project
To reach the correct thermal design for your project, you need to consider a number of key areas including: fire safety, thermal performance, heat loss, sustainability of materials, physical constraints, location and budget. Which is why achieving the correct thermal solution for your project that balances all the key areas can be tricky.
Introducing the innovative SFS NVELOPE® Thermal Solutions range which makes this process much easier. Our Thermal Solutions operate across the wide range of NVELOPE® rainscreen subframe systems and utilizes the proven technology of Project Builder Thermal to help projects to be optimized for performance and budget.
SFS Nvelope has been able to create high performing solutions that guard against thermal degradation due to compression of the thermal pad, ensuring no loss in thermal performance over time. NVELOPE® Thermal Solutions range is created in both Aluminium and Stainless Steel brackets, which offer differing thermal properties. Whether a lower or a higher thermal performance is required, we have the flexibility to fine-tune your project requirements.
Our solutions offer a range of thermal performances from good to exceptional, balanced against budget requirements. Supported by our Project Builder calculator, careful selection from the range can effectively reduce the thickness of insulation thereby reducing overall costs.
To reduce the risk of incorrect installation helping to save you time and re-work or assembly onsite, our systems are pre-assembled.
Overlay & Optimized Cutting Service
NVELOPE Thermal Solutions further optimizes efficiencies through the overlay and improves cutting service which reduces time and material waste onsite by cutting rails to the specific lengths you need.
Reducing the Performance Gap
Non-compressible insulation pad on the NVELOPE VB+Thermal, NVELOPE HB+Thermal and the NVELOPE NVS+Thermal products reduces the effects from thermal degradation due to compression of the insulating pad. This helps to reduce the performance gap from design to real world installation.
Full Technical Support
As with all NVELOPE products we offer full technical support.
Project Builder Solutions
Project Builder was built to make your job easier. It is the leading software of its kind on the market today and is free to use. The software provides system specifications and budget costing for your project, often within 24hrs.
Project Builder makes specifying the right solution simple, providing a free project-specific PDF complete with: list pricing per M2, static calculations, NBS specification and thermal values. This enables budget and thermal performance to be optimized.
As with all NVELOPE products we offer an industry leading warranty.
