Typical Installation Process

Nortem’s cladding system can be applied as a cosmetic facelift to the exterior surface of both new and older buildings. This is a simple process that generates a fundamental transition to the modern architectural era — catapulting building appearances from their outdated images into fashionable, trendy and slick expressions the urban outfit of 21-century demands.

 Our mounting system consists of aluminum extruded or stainless steel profiles, are fastened onto the wall vertically or horizontally depending on the direction of your panels but usually perpendicular with each other. The required spacing in-between each panel depends on the design and sometimes limited to dimensions.

 The principle behind designing our panels longitudinally is due to their flexibility and adaptability with any form and shape of façade that architects design. Panels can be installed vertically or horizontally and always ready to install right out of the box.

 Nortem’s Panel is capable of being installed multi-directional on a variety of substrates such as concrete, cement blocks, plywood and dens glass. Depending on the nature of the application, the architect chooses the appropriate building paper, either a weather barrier or waterproofing membranes such as Tyvek or Blueskin.
