The DonoBrace system is the only steel bracing product in Australia and New Zealand which is dynamically tested in a simulated earthquake environment. Testing by Holmes Solutions LP demonstrates that DonoBrace can be used for designs compliant with New Zealand Steel Structures Standard NZS3404, satisfying structural requirements of the New Zealand and Australian Building Codes. Every DonoBrace that leaves our New Zealand manufacturing plant undergoes an order based quality assurance screening, ensuring compliance with NZ and Australia building standards.
DonoBrace offers three steel rod bracing systems to suit different building loads:
DB15 = 15mm Rod Bracing System
DB20 = 20mm Rod Bracing SystemDB25 = 25mm Rod Bracing System
