The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has been involved with the NSW Government’s $300 million prestigious Wynyard Walk project in Sydney’s CBD, a project which entails construction of a world class, fully accessible pedestrian link connecting Wynyard Station to both Barrangaroo and the CBD western corridor.
ATDC was engaged by the lead architect for the project, Woods Bagot which approached ATDC to assist in designing a folding security door to secure Railway House, a heritage building on York Street with doorways leading on to York Lane.
Folding Security Doors
It was imperative that the folding security doors blended in to the surrounds of the historic building so as to have minimal impact and in this regard the doors were to be trackless and designed to pivot out of the way when unlocked and not in use. A special powdercoat finish (Signalschwarz) was selected from the international RAL powdercoat range to further complement the heritage façade of the building.

ATDC were involved in all aspects of the design process of the folding security doors and liaised with the project managers, CPB Contractors, to arrange for the challenging installation where ATDC were not permitted to affix to the heritage façade nor to lock on to it. To avoid attaching to the façade specially designed welded frames were constructed which were attached to the floor and ceiling. To avoid locking on to the façade special seamless up/down locking mechanisms were utilized. In addition the locking mechanisms on these folding security doors had to be keyed to the master key system used for the site.
Installations throughout Australia
ATDC’’s folding security doors have been installed on many heritage buildings throughout Australia including many of the old railway stations in QLD, NSW, WA and Vic. In each case the antiquated olde style appeal of these doors as well as their negligible impact on each of the relevant historic buildings have been their major advantages.
