Moddex was able to work with the builder to supply modular handrail and balustrade for a number of different applications around the school to ensure safety for students.

Products/configurations used on project:

  • Conectabal - CB40
  • Conectabal - CB10
  • Assistrail - AR150

Why was Moddex product selected?
Moddex was selected because the lead times were significantly reduced on fabricated options, and the need for temporary edge protection on the internal voids was removed. Our installers were able to deliver the sections and install as the building was being constructed.
