THE NOW-8000 IS A LABELED MCM SYSTEM, TESTED WITH TRACEABLE MATERIALS TO THE MOST UP-TO-DATE AIR, WATER, STRUCTURAL, RAINSCREEN AND FLAME-SPREAD STANDARDS, IN FULL ACCORDANCE WITH 2015 IBC 1703.5.
All pertinent test results were certified by Intertek and publicly listed on their spec-direct.com website (enter 43700 in the spec ID lookup or follow this link). Intertek and NOW created a 26-page factory audit manual (FAM), based on the procurement, storage and fabrication methods leading up to those tests. Intertek will inspect our facility semi-annually, to certify that we are buying, storing, assembling and tracing our material components as required by the FAM.
The NOW-8000 is a drained/back-ventilated (D/BV) rainscreen with a joint spline, custom fabricated and engineered to match virtually any design. Its combination of form and function make it the perfect choice for many applications. When matched with a properly-integrated air barrier, NOW-8000 meets even the most challenging criteria.
Capitalizing on the innate performance of ACM (Aluminum 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 - as well as natural metals such as anodized aluminum, brushed aluminum, stainless steel and copper - ensure that your cladding will last the life of the building.
Return legs are fully exposed, for a crisp and attractive reveal. With a geographically-suitable air barrier material, the NOW-8000 is our most affordable and design-flexible rainscreen.
