Contemporary Fin Balustrades for Stylish Townhouse Developments

Having used the Euro Fin solution on a previous development and being very happy with the way the product complemented the modern architectural style of their project, it was an easy decision for Wolfbrook Residential to specify Provista Balustrade System’s Euro Fin on two further stylish developments, one in Christchurch and the other in Auckland.

The striking 7-unit development at 5 Dellwood Ave in Henderson, Auckland, features a very contemporary design. The three levels of each townhouse are finished in a light exterior finish which is perfectly complemented by a dark Matt Flaxpod finish to the Euro Fin balustrades, joinery and other façade features.

The apartment development at 156 Blenheim Rd in Riccarton, Christchurch, features a fantastic modernist design. The stark timber-grained natural concrete exterior structure is complemented by the Matt Black Euro Fin balustrades, joinery and façade details. There’s a mix of Top and Side-fixed Euro Fin which, along with the concrete structure, helps breaks the horizontal lines and adds a pleasing design element to the development from the street.

Provista’s strong ‘Ultra’ post profile was utilised as the support structure for the Euro Fin panels on these projects which also allowed visually pleasing post spacings to be achieved. The Ultra post range is specified for use in Extra High wind zones as standard and, like all Provista extrusions, are manufactured from 6061 T6 aluminium for extra strength and longevity.

The Euro Fin product range, comprising a 50 x 15mm, 40 x 40mm and new 100 x 45mm fin profile, is very adaptable to different building types, looking great on modern or classical structures and, in these two cases, has provided attractive and practical low maintenance balustrade solutions that complement the design and look of the two developments as well as providing some privacy for occupants when seated on the first floor deck areas.

Provista’s Euro Fin range offers increased privacy over conventional baluster systems and is a versatile solution for a deck balustrade or privacy screening. The product is also fantastic for stairs and fins can be run at longer lengths to follow the stair profile and provide a stylish screened area under the stairs.

Not requiring a traditional handrail to the top of the balustrade, a Euro Fin solution looks very clean and linear and Fin spacings and heights can be adapted to suit the desired level of privacy. Completed panels are affixed to either a face-fixed or top-fixed Provista post profile. These post profiles are also used for Provista glass solutions, so a balustrade or pool fence can comprise a combination of Euro Fin and glass to suit the desired look.

Provista Balustrade Systems solutions are compliant with all NZ regulations and suited to A, B, E and C3 residential and commercial applications.
