Our Story

We’ve been fabricating balustrades, stair railings, screens and façade treatments for decades and have been the preferred supplier on many large multi-unit commercial projects throughout New Zealand. With customised in house fabrication and powder coating line we can deliver on tight timelines.

Our History

Since the 1980s we’ve been looking out for our friends in high places.

  • The genesis of Attachē was in the mid-80s when a small Kiwi engineering business began manufacturing steel fencing and gates for swimming pools.
  • In the 90s, , we made the switch to aluminium and took the leap into the commercial sector.
  • In 2011 we opened a factory and powder-coating plant and extended our team of designers and project managers to work alongside AEC industry heavy weights.
  • In 2020, recognising the value specialist thinking and quality fabrication brings to the balustrade and stair railing sand screens, we created the Attaché brand.

A creative approach at project inception can dramatically affect the result… getting involved early can save significant costs in the long run.

As one of the few aluminium balustrade companies in New Zealand we offer a concept-to-completion service. We engage with architects, developers, and construction companies. A creative approach at project inception can dramatically affect the result, particularly for balustrade specification and installation. Getting involved early can save significant costs in the long run.

We have an impressive BIM library of Attaché balustrade styles. These include:

  • Revit families with DWG & PDF details and
  • ArchiCAD railings tool

You’ll find these available from our resources page

The family-owned business is now in its third generation. We take pride in the strength and style of our work – and do everything we can to ensure our clients feel this pride too.

Our Approach


We take a forward-thinking innovative approach to the above New Zealand’s built environment. 

Think outside the box when thinking around the balcony

 Custom-built balustrades often save time and money (while providing the perfectly designed final result). That’s how balustrade and stair screen design can improve up-high functionality and your bottom line. From our BIM library, Attaché parametric styles can customised in either Revit or ArchiCAD to align with the prescribed  design intent. 

The best place to start is at the beginning

Being able to specify the correct balustrade from the start of the project is of huge value to both architect and project manager. We have a custom section in MasterSpec and all our Revit families contain CBI section metadata. 

It must be safe as houses (and hotels, apartments, offices…)

Planned, built and tested here, our balustrades provide connection and protection that is always materially strong and up to standard. We know our reputation building balustrades in New Zealand is always upheld by the last project we’ve done. So nothing is left to chance. 

You need a little flash and a lot of function

Some things are just common sense – safety shouldn’t diminish style; style shouldn’t jeopardise functionality and functionality shouldn’t be endangered by cost. This no-compromises approach is only possible with inclusive design and unerring construction.
