Introducing the NOW-8000
Rainscreen System

LABELED—LISTED—CERTIFIED

Quality Assurance, Unsurpassed

The NOW-8000 System Delivers State-of-the-Art Performance With Ease of Installation, Durable Finishes, Elegant Simplicity and Custom Fabrication.

The NOW-8000 is a labeled MCM system recognized by ICC-ES (ESR #4474 and ESL #1316). It is tested with traceable materials to the most up-to-date air, water, structural, deflection and multi-story flame spread standards—including NFPA 285—in strict compliance with 2018 IBC 1703.5. Its combination of form and function make it the perfect choice for nearly any application. When matched with a properly-integrated air barrier, NOW-8000 is suitable for almost any wall.

Capitalizing on the innate performance of MCM (metal composite material), the NOW-8000 system delivers a sleek, flat look that manages thermal expansion and contraction, and virtually eliminates oil-canning. Proven, durable architectural coatings—including PVDF and FEVE—ensure your cladding will last the life of the building.

Project at a Glance

Cotton Bowl

Commercial Wall System Fabricator: Texas | NOW Specialties - featured-project
NOW Specialties was an instrumental subcontractor/design build partner to the success of the design-build project. They provided constant leadership and teamwork approach to the project. They were definitely an A+ subcontractor to a difficult project. Balfour Beatty,
October 2013, regarding the Cotton Bowl Renovations

NOW Specialties is proud to present the Cotton Bowl, last renovated in 2012. The Cotton Bowl was originally named Fair Park Stadium, with a seating capacity of 46,000, although periodic retrofits have doubled that capacity to 92,100. 

Heery International designed the 2012 renovation, which featured a dramatic stainless steel mesh configuration with silver metallic accent bands. Cambridge Architectural manufactured two of their architectural products, Midbalance and Pellican, and were tireless in their support of our installation. NOW Specialties is grateful for the opportunity to work with Balfour Beatty, Heery and Cambridge, throughout the renewal of this true Dallas icon.
