Ultra Aluminum Mfg., Inc. recently supplied its Ultra Signature Aluminum Railing, Ultra Ornamental Aluminum Fence and Ultra Privacy Fence to AVCON for the 25 Maple Avenue multi-family project recently completed in New Rochelle, NY. WBP Development LLC, together with L+M Development Partners, developed a mixed-use residential development in downtown New Rochelle. The building, designed by Beyer Blinder Belle, consists of 184 residential units in a 7-story building with rooftop amenities, structured parking, and retail spaces at ground floor. Centrally located in downtown New Rochelle just off Main Street, the building is a 7-minute walk from the Metro North and Amtrak station.  It is also in close proximity to I-95 and the Hutchinson River Parkway.  

AVCON was initially contacted three years ago by an existing client that had joined Griffon Associates and began working on 25 Maple Avenue Apartments. Knowing this project would need railing design attention, he called AVCON in to present their products and services. Over the next two years AVCON worked directly with Griffon Associates and Beyer Blinder Belle, finalizing design elements and custom mounting solutions for each area. These areas include the apartment parking garage, terraces, residential privacy spaces, dog run and rooftop.

Fully installed by AVCON Manufacturing in January 2023, there is 2,300 LF of 2-rail continuous top picket railing with custom fascia mount posts at the terrace and rooftop parapet walls, over 700 LF of privacy dividers with custom fishplate mounts at the residential spaces, and 50 LF of 48'' high fence with gate assemblies for the dog run area.

The building industry is seeing a dramatic change in materials used for multi-family railing. For years wood was the material of choice but began changing to vinyl and steel in the 1980’s. In the past two decades, aluminum has been the fastest growing material used for fence and railing due to its life expectancy, low maintenance, installation ease and competitive pricing. 

Ultra Aluminum is based in Howell, MI and has focused on producing and supplying quality aluminum fencing and railing to customers for years. Due to its vast offering of products including balcony railing, pool fence, dumpster enclosures and privacy panels to conceal generators and HVAC equipment, Ultra Aluminum is ideal for the multi-family industry. Ultra Aluminum can create submittals and a project quote for the installing contractors from the project plans that they provide. Ultra has a network of installation partners, like AVCON, throughout the United States should the Developer and/or General Contractor need turnkey proposals. 

Should you need a railing or fence partner for upcoming multi-family projects, please consider reaching out to Ultra Aluminum Mfg., Inc. at 800-656-4420. Their websites are great resources as well:  www.ultrarailing.com and www.ultrafence.com.
