UNEX DKG Gutter Brackets Transform Balustrade Installation at Wellington Residence

Perched near the entrance of Wellington Harbour, a residence boasting magnificent views of the surrounding bush and harbor sought a balustrade solution that not only complied with regulations but also enhanced the outdoor living experience. The challenge was significant – a waterproof deck, external gutters, and a room beneath the deck. Enter UNEX and their innovative solution, the DKG Gutter Brackets.

Typically, fixing a compliant balustrade in such a setting would be a daunting task. However, UNEX's DKG Gutter Brackets proved to be the ideal fixing solution. The Vetro Semi-Frameless Glass Balustrade was chosen to complement the residence's aesthetic while providing unobstructed views of the stunning surroundings.

The UNEX Gutter Bracket played a pivotal role in fixing the vertical balustrade posts to the side of the house. What makes this system exceptional is its compatibility with any UNEX proprietary balustrade system with posts. The installation process, managed by an Authorized UNEX Fabricator, was a collaborative effort, ensuring precise coordination with other parties involved.

One of the key advantages of the UNEX solution is its ability to mount the balustrade behind the drip edge, avoiding any piercing of the waterproof membrane. This not only ensures compliance but also maintains the integrity of the waterproof deck. Additionally, the external gutter, fixed independently of the balustrade, provides flexibility in gutter selection, contributing to a customized and polished appearance.

In this case, they have not only met the challenge posed by the unique features of the Wellington residence but have elevated the outdoor space, allowing the owners to relish the beauty of their surroundings without compromise.
