Modern Building Product

Innovative construction industry products.

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.
