Pioneering steel bracing in New Zealand with the dynamic DonoBrace.

Modern Building Product delivers essential steel bracing, cladding, and complimentary products required for steel building construction.

Fundamental to the collection is DonoBrace. Designed for New Zealand’s earthquake and wind-prone environment, the DonoBrace system pushes the boundaries of roof and wall bracing for lightweight structures. DonoBrace is New Zealand’s only rod-bracing system to be dynamically tested to simulate behaviour in earthquakes – and it passed with flying colours. Fast installation, high strength New Zealand designed and manufactured end connections, and galvanised fastening components, means DonoBrace provides a user-friendly and cost-effective result for the end user.

Providing protection from the elements is ModnColour, a precoated metal roof and wall cladding solution available for all Donovan Group’s distributors. Personal access doors and a unique vermin-proof bottom girt complete the suite of available products.
