Product: NV2 (structural adhesive)
For a stunning new residential scheme in central London, O-Central, architects required a reliable, durable and practical method of fixing the vast amounts of exterior cladding to the building.
Designed by architects Tate & Hindle for Oakmayne Properties, the building required an innovative approach to the exterior cladding, which could be installed quickly as it was to be completed on a fast track 69-week programme.
Tate & Hindle specified white render and Trespa Meteon Rainscreen cladding panels. Extremely weather resistant, they are not affected by sun, rain (including acid rain) or moisture. To provide a secure fix for the panels, NVELOPE provided its NV2 (structural adhesive) rainscreen cladding support system.
For O-Central, with aesthetics of paramount importance, the panels were held onto the NV2 support system using SikaTack panel adhesive, a high performance adhesive system.
NVELOPE produces a comprehensive range of cladding support systems to suit most applications, including vertical fix, horizontal fix and secret fix. As part of a complete technical support package, NVELOPE provides specifiers with a range of tools and services.
