UNEX Glass Balustrade for Apartments

Revolutionising Urban Living at Frederick Street Apartments

Wellington's architectural landscape has been redefined with the completion of the Frederick Street Apartments, a striking 12-storey residential building in the heart of the city. At the forefront of this project's success is Unex Systems, a leader in balustrade and louvre screen solutions, whose innovative products and engineering prowess played a crucial role in bringing this architectural vision to life.

Unex Systems: The Epitome of Elegance and Safety

Unex Systems has long been synonymous with high-quality, aesthetically pleasing balustrade systems, and their contribution to the Frederick Street Apartments is no exception. The project boasts over 300 lineal metres of their signature Avon style glass balustrade, a product that perfectly blends safety and style. This framed glass balustrade system, is a testament to their commitment to delivering top-tier products that enhance both the safety and visual appeal of urban structures.

The Avon style balustrades are not just functional; they are a design statement. With their sleek lines and modern aesthetic, they significantly contribute to the building's overall contemporary look, making the balconies and communal areas not only safe but visually stunning.

Engineering Excellence at Its Core

The prowess of Unex Systems extends beyond our products to our engineering capabilities. Unex has a deep-rooted commitment to technical innovation and precision. Our holistic approach to engineering solutions ensures that every product not only meets but exceeds industry standards. This dedication was evident in the meticulous installation of both the balustrades and the 100 lineal metres of custom louvre fin full-height privacy screens at the Frederick Street Apartments.

UNEX Commercial Supply Partners: Harnessing Local Expertise

UNEX stands out not only for its overarching design and technical expertise but also for its collaboration with skilled Commercial Supply Partners who bring hands-on project management and on-site labour. These partners offer invaluable proximity and logistical efficiencies, crucial for complex urban projects. A prime example of this effective collaboration is the role of Aligned Balustrades, a key Unex Systems' commercial supply partner, in the Frederick Street Apartments project.

Their mastery in handling and installing UNEX's balustrade systems was pivotal in actualising the architectural dream. Aligned Balustrades exemplified precision and meticulous attention to detail, ensuring that every metre of the elegant Avon style balustrades and the bespoke louvre fins were installed to perfection. This flawless execution not only adhered to the highest standards of quality and safety but also contributed significantly to the architectural integrity and aesthetic appeal of the building.

Collaboration: The Key to Success

The Frederick Street Apartments project is a testament to the power of collaboration. The seamless integration of Unex Systems' balustrade and screen solutions with our Commercial Supply Partners' installation expertise, alongside the architectural prowess of Archaus and the construction acumen of McKeefehl, culminated in a residential building that is not only safe and private but also aesthetically magnificent.

A New Standard for Urban Living

These Apartments stand as a beacon of modern urban living, and Unex Systems has been instrumental in setting this new standard. Their products and engineering expertise have not only ensured the safety and privacy of the residents but have also added an element of sophistication to the building's design.

As Wellington continues to evolve, projects like this will serve as benchmarks for future developments. And at the heart of these projects will be companies like Unex Systems, whose innovation, quality, and collaborative spirit drive the industry forward.

In conclusion, the Frederick Street Apartments is more than just a residential building; it's a symbol of architectural and engineering excellence. It showcases how Unex Systems' dedication to quality and innovation can transform a building into a landmark, redefining the standards for urban residential projects in Wellington and beyond.
