Architectural & Structural

Our Architectural & Structural products and services include suspension wiring, structural rod systems, wire balustrading, aluminium flag poles and other custom solutions. We have worked on numerous architectural and structural wire and rod system projects across New Zealand and overseas. We work with architects, engineers, commercial fit out specialists, artists, businesses and home owners. Our experience spans residential, commercial and industrial work – design, supply and install. We are problem solvers and can fully customise solutions in our on-site workshop. All of our products and fittings are of the highest quality available and designed to perform and be tested in intense sailing environments. This makes these high-spec systems extremely strong, flexible and reliable.


We design, supply and install suspension wiring systems for any application. We have a large selection of wires, end fittings, shackles and associated components. Our wires and fittings are manufactured to the highest aesthetic and structural standards. They are fully load rated and available from 2.5mm to 30mm diameter in stainless or galvanised steel. We work closely with engineers and architects to ensure loadings and applications are the most suited to each job. Ronstan ACS2 ACS3


We are the local experts for structural rod systems and are unrivalled in our ability to be involved throughout the process from concept through to supply. We only use top-of-the-line fittings, which are available with short lead times. Ronstan rod systems are available in a wide variety of material grades with finishes in stainless or carbon steel. This allows for the optimisation of your structure. Rod diameters range from 4.8mm to 100mm. Ronstan ARS1 ARS2 ARS3 ARS4


Wire balustrading is a simple, minimalist solution which offers uninterrupted views. Oborn’s can design, supply and install a variety of balustrading systems for commercial and domestic applications. We have a full range of wire adjusters, so balustrading can be tensioned to be code compliant. We can source and supply the balustrading framework, or we can design a balustrading system to fit framework supplied by an engineer or architect.


We supply and install aluminium flag poles. Our high quality heavy-wall poles come complete with halyard clips, top cap, cleats and in ground mounts. We can powder coat or paint in a choice of colours. Our flag poles can be fitted with a conventional external rope halyard or with a hide-away vandal-proof internal halyard, which also eliminates chafing and noise.


We are committed to being problem solvers. Because of our nautical background we know these products and systems better than anyone. We enjoy the challenge of finding new ways to utilise our wire and rod systems, and working in conjunction with other structural minds. We are not limited by the projects that we have worked on in the past, or by what we can imagine. Please come to us with any problem or structural challenge and we will throw all our energy into finding an answer and achieving a result that people will talk about.
