Despite the disruptions of lockdowns due to Covid, Safari Group completed the La Quinta Hotel project in late 2020, only 17 months after it started. A truly remarkable achievement!
Working in partnership with Safari, Moddex designed, supplied and installed over 350m of their modular handrail and balustrade systems to the two internal access stairs and various external ramps and stairs.
Since their beginnings, Moddex has been working with Safari Group as a long-time provider, so they knew they could put their trust in Moddex when it came to compliant, durable handrails and balustrades.
The client required handrail and balustrade systems that matched the other design elements of the hotel exterior for an aesthetically pleasing look. Moddex supplied the handrails and balustrades in an iron sand powder coat finish. Not only did they match the aesthetic and refined look the client was after but were fully compliant, making them the perfect fit.
Moddex's engineer also conducted a detailed evaluation to produce a site-specific PS1 for architect and council sign-off. Because the handrail was being fixed into timber, they had to ensure the fixings were up to specification for PS1 loading requirements.
With Moddex, Safari Group could be rest assured that the handrails and balustrades were fully compliant with New Zealand Standards. They could have full confidence that they were investing in the highest-quality solution, with the lowest ongoing maintenance costs and a low lifetime cost of ownership.
When your project demands aesthetic, compliant and easy to install handrail and balustrade systems, look no further than Moddex.
