Revolutionising Back Flashings

500 pixel Landscape 1

With a range of flashing products available on the market, why bother introducing yet another? The reason is simple. To provide a product that reduces waste to landfill, contributes to lowering the cost of building, and has added benefits that builders can enjoy!

The new DynaFlash Universal Back Flashing by DynexBuild has it all. Because the builder cuts DynaFlash to the exact length required, waste can be eliminated. The high grade polymers used in manufacture have been independently tested for NZ conditions. DynaFlash is supplied in a clever 25m dispensing box, making it convenient for the builder to handle and meaning you can say goodbye to joins.

DynaFlash comes in two sizes, 50 x 50mm or 75 x 75mm, both in a 25m coil. The flexible hinge enables the product to be used for external corners, internal corners and flat junctions.

The DynexBuild team has cleverly incorporated the fixing strip into the flashing itself, reducing the need for fixings to penetrate the critical area between the beads.

The compressible co-ex bead is designed to help divert any moisture to the bottom of the flashing. Due to its compressible and slim nature, this bead will not push out the cladding, reducing unsightly cladding bulges that disrupt the aesthetic lines along a building.

When looking to specify the appropriate flashing on your next design, look no further. The product has been BRANZ appraised and is proudly made in New Zealand.

Innovative St. Kilda Show Home Opts for a Multi- Clad Look with James Hardie


Synergy Designer Homes — a joint venture between LAD Architecture and St Kilda subdivision — is building its first show home at the St Kilda Wetlands subdivision in Cambridge. The project management company provides architecturally designed, turn-key home solutions.

The show home features James Hardie Linea® Weatherboard and Stria® Cladding on the exterior, with Secura™ Interior Flooring on the upper floor. The materials were selected for their superior quality, with the cladding providing an ‘up market and high end’ feel.

“We didn’t want to compromise on the claddings and fixtures,” says Aaron Guerin, director of LAD Architecture. “Linea® Weatherboard and Stria® Cladding are showcase products and possess unique features that complement the cedar panelling also used on the home’s exterior.”

James Hardie claddings are lightweight cement composite sheets, which Guerin says makes them easy to work with. “The builders can lift and fix the sheets quickly and easily, providing significant benefits labour-wise,” explains Guerin.

The structural flooring for the upstairs master bedroom also provided building efficiencies. “Secura Interior Flooring is an all in one product — it can be tiled directly without the need for underlay,” says Guerin.

Additionally, the moisture-resistant sealer on all sides removes the need for full floor waterproofing outside enclosed wet areas and is an easy way to protect against the possibility of moisture.

“The water resistant sealer element has provided us with security during the build, as the floor is protected against the elements, and provides long-term benefits in terms of its durability,” says Guerin.

Its durable construction gives a squeak-free, solid feel under carpet, tiles or vinyl. The acoustic properties of the flooring, coupled with its stability and rigidity, are ideal for this high spec home.

“We pride ourselves on design, detail, and finish — and James Hardie’s products fit the brief well,” says Guerin.

James Hardie reps provided installation training prior to works commencing, which Guerin says will help ensure the home meets the expectations of customers andSynergy Designer Homes own high standards.


  • Location: St Kilda, Cambridge
  • Project Size: 267 sqm
