The team at TRACKLOK® have seen a number of articles written recently, on the lack of consideration given to securing non-structural elements within NZ buildings. Building inspections show most Auckland and Wellington high-rises failed to meet earthquake standards to stop people being hit by falling objects. With help from our distributors and industry partners we are seeing the walls and ceilings industry leading the way with proprietary solutions to these serious issues.

TRACKLOK® secures partition walls and with the TRACKLOK® plan mark-up team continuing to provide set out clarity. This FREE plan mark-up service really makes a difference.

Meanwhile, GRIDLOK® is providing clarity, consistency and real performance in ceiling bracing. From designers looking for consistency and installers looking to produce excellent results, quickly – GRIDLOK® is proving its worth. We believe the use of proprietary TRACKLOK® and GRIDLOK® solutions will improve the future performance of NZ’s building stock.

Please note that our manufacturing team have been hard at work and are demanding time off over the Christmas break – please order stock early as they will be offline from the 22nd of December 2017 – 8th January 2018.
