An open-joint, concealed fastener rainscreen system for use with high-pressure laminates.
NOW-7200 allows for maximum ventilation and moisture control, superior flatness and better panel modules. It is suitable for interior and exterior use. Exterior use requires an uninterrupted air barrier, with a perm rating suitable to project geography.
The NOW-7200 system is a concealed-fastener, drained/back- ventilated rainscreen wall system featuring high-pressure laminate cladding (also known as phenolic resin material). Normal sheet thickness is 10mm, although some applications demand 13mm. A continuous horizontal track spans between extruded structural clips as required – suspension clips are back-mounted to the HPL sheet, which is field-installed to the track. The inner leaf of the system is exposed through open panel reveals, which are normally 3/8-inch wide. The NOW-7200 requires a properly-integrated, UV-stable air barrier suitable to the project location, and is engineered for heights of 35 feet or less. Vented closures at system top and bottom keep unwanted pests out of the wall cavity, while the HPL’s impermeable finish is easy to maintain and disinfect. Cavity depth is typically 1 5/8-inch.
