To suit the broadest range of project requirements, leading nationwide independent balustrade and pool fencing specialist, Provista Balustrade Systems, has had its Ultra framed, Ultra semi-frameless and Gutter Bracket solutions engineered for Extra High Wind Zones as standard. They join the face-fixed Vista frameless channel solution which was engineered for Extra High from the outset.
Noel Priestley from Provista comments, “We found we were having to provide site-specific engineering and PS1’s for a number of nationwide projects simply because the wind zone was Extra High, adding time and cost to these projects. By having these popular solutions engineered as standard to Extra High, we felt we could assist clients and make the consenting process that much easier.”
The Provista Ultra range is a development of the established and successful framed and semi-frameless post profiles but the systems feature larger and stronger 53 x 53mm post sections. This enables larger post spacings even when specified for Extra High wind zones.
Provista’s new aluminium Gutter Bracket solution has also been designed and engineered for use in Extra High zones and offers excellent strength and leading post spacings. It has also been designed exclusively for use with the Ultra range post profiles in applications involving membrane and floating deck structures.
Provista focuses on providing stylish solutions to complement both modern new-built and classic existing homes around New Zealand. All face-fixed solutions feature completely hidden fixings for an ultra-clean look.
The Provista product range is designed and engineered for installation on a wide range of structures, including timber, concrete, steel and typical combinations of each. T6 Temper Grade alloy is used for aluminium components, providing approx. 20% increased strength over typical grades. Product Technical Statements for all solutions are available on the Provista website and EBOSS technical library.
