Morrinsville College is a co-educational secondary school that caters for students in Years 9 to 13 from the township of Morrinsville and surrounding rural areas.
Moddex provided the school with handrails for the accessible walkway and stairs to the Performing Arts Centre. Moddex’s handrails helped to improve accessibility and safety for the students, teachers, and parents. The Assistrail AR20 system (Single inline handrail with a kerb rail) meant the mobility impaired or vision impaired could traverse the site safely and with ease.
Moddex provided the handrails in a powdercoated black finish, creating a smart and refined architectural and aesthetic finish.
Why was Moddex product selected?
Moddex was selected for the project because we provided a complete end to end solution from design right through to installation.
Moddex advised as to system types to best suit the application and meet compliance to the New Zealand Building Code. Because our product configurations come in families, we were able to refer to a specific product type which ensured alignment across all parties as to the exact system for the application.
From here Moddex completed a site measure and produced dimensional CAD drawings. These were shared with the main contractor and architect to be checked off against site dimensions to ensure a perfect fit on site. Our Moddex team completed all fabrication in-house at our purpose-built manufacturing facility. Following our fabrication process of cutting, bending and welding the product was then hot dip galvanized and powdercoated black. All items where then sent to site flat packed and fully pre-configured ready for installation.
