Premium grade portable barriers Installed at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant at LAX

Premium grade portable barriers have been installed at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant at LAX International Airport in Los Angeles.

Portable Barriers – Premium Grade

Wolfgang Puck is an Austrian Born-American and is an internationally renowned celebrity chef, award winning restaurateur, newspaper columnist, famous television personality, part time actor and philanthropist. His group’s activities also include catering services, cookbooks and premium grade licensed products.

The portable barriers installed at Wolfgang Puck’s LAX restaurant are mobile and trackless and have been configured in a multi-angled shape to accommodate the unique contours of the storefront. Being trackless and free standing, these portable barriers require no headroom at all which is normally a necessity for overhead door systems and they require no overhead support structure making them easy and economical to install since no structural bulkheads are required. Available in standard heights of 2020mm or 2520mm (or available in custom made heights as required), the span of these portable barriers is unlimited due to their unique semi-modular design and thereby the need for heavy, unsafe and unwieldy removable mullions is avoided making it easy and safe for staff to operate. The portable barriers are able to  blend in with the aesthetics of the storefront with  their sharp precision angled lines and high quality gloss powdercoated finish (standard finishes are either a black satin or a pearl white although any finish in the dulux Australian powdercoat range is available as an extra over option).

The Manufacturing Process

Manufactured from precision engineered high tensile steel sections and with both wall mounted and floor mounted  locking options, these portable barriers are compact, sturdy and formidable yet are very easy  to operate running on a series of low friction  heavy duty 75mm bottom thermoplastic rubber non marking bottom castors. Both steel and aluminium portable barriers are available with the latter more suitable for installation in a highly corrosive marine environment such as coastal, beachside or riverfront locations. The natural anodised and UV-resistant powdercoated finishes provide the extra anti-corrosion qualities of these quality aluminium barriers.

Tested and Approved

OH+S tested under the Australian legislation for safety and with a detailed, written and independently audited WHS Risk Assessment, The Australian Trellis Door Company’s (ATDC) portable barriers are stand out leaders in the field and are also independently tested in an approved NATA laboratory  for dynamic impact, simulated climbing and wind force overturn conditions under the Australian Standard AS 4687 -2007 Temporary Fencing and Hoardings. Further testing has been successfully completed for emergency egress under the Building Code of Australia where required.

ATDC’s portable barriers are also available in a double diamond lattice pattern with the steel mesh tightly interwoven resulting in the pitch between the metal cross linkages at a mere 65mm to 70mm. This prevents people putting their hands through the mesh to reach merchandise on the other side of the barrier making the portable barriers an extremely effective loss prevention aide.

Security for Retailers

Suitable applications for ATDC’s portable barriers include achieving temporary security for pop-up stores, kiosks and other temporary retail tenancies, access control for shopping centres and public buildings (such as railway stations and passenger terminals for instance at airports, ferry stations, bus terminals), Worksafe applications such as construction sites, sports stadiums, public events, entertainment venues, securing of warehouses and loading docks. ATDC’s portable barriers are also available for hire on a long, medium term or short term basis.

Portable Safety Barriers at The Australian National Maritime Museum

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed an installation of its premium grade aluminium portable safety barriers at Sydney’s Darling Harbour for The Australian National Maritime Museum.

Our Portable Safety Barriers

The Maritime Museum tasked ATDC with replacing its existing fixed barrier systems which were in  poor condition having badly corroded, faded and tarnished  due to their  proximity to the marine environment at Sydney Harbour. Further, the Museum wanted to remove their fixed barrier systems which were previously in place since they were a permanent eyesore and were not welcoming to the public, the requirements for their new perimeter fencing were that when unlocked the barriers were to be tucked away and stored completely out of site and further, that they would be able to withstand the highly corrosive surrounding marine environment.

ATDC installed its all-aluminium portable safety barriers to achieve these dual objectives of the Maritime Museum. ATDC’s  barriers are manufactured   from high tensile 20mm x 1.8mm all aluminium square box sections and have solid stainless steel rivets- these portable safety barriers have an anodised finish to 25 microns, making them suitable for installation in a highly corrosive marine environment with a high saline content. Their non-marking thermoplastic rubber tread castors make them suitable for any installation on any type of finished floor. Their professional powdercoated finish has UV inhibitors so they will not fade or tarnish in sunlight where installed on the exterior of buildings. Further information is available on ATDC’s aluminium portable safety barriers, including specifications and images.

Semi-Modular Design

Completely retractable, mobile, trackless and able to span an unlimited width makes these portable safety barriers suitable for securing extremely large openings typical at high thoroughfare public access areas such as ports, airports and railway stations. Available in standard heights of 1200mm or 1800mm (or available in custom made heights as required), the span of these portable safety barriers is unlimited due to their unique semi-modular design and thereby the need for removable mullions is avoided making them very easy to operate.

Various Locking Options

Also available from ATDC is a high tensile steel product and with both wall mounted and floor mounted locking options, these portable safety barriers are compact and strong yet are very easy to operate running on a series of low friction heavy duty thermoplastic rubber non marking bottom castors. ATDC’s steel portable safety barriers are safety tested for OH+S compliance and have also been successfully tested for compliance to Australian Standards AS 4687-2007 for Temporary Fencing and Hoardings. Further information is available on ATDC’s steel portable safety barriers including specifications and images.

 Temporary Security Applications

Suitable applications for ATDC’s portable safety barriers include achieving temporary security for pop-up stores, kiosks and other temporary tenancies, access control for shopping centres and public buildings, worksafe applications such as construction sites, sports stadiums, public events, entertainment venues, securing of factory loading docks. ATDC’s portable safety barriers are also available for hire. For further information on some of these safety applications please see article on our Safety Barriers in the Industrial Sector.

ATDC Premium Grade Shopfront Doors for DFS Group in Vietnam

Premium Grade Shopfront Doors for High End Project

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed a high end project for its premium grade shopfront doors for DFS Group at Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. (See picture)

Working closely with internationally renowned shopfitters Kingsmen & Co, ATDC has supplied its cutting edge shopfront doors to secure the luxury store’s valuable merchandise. Kingsmen shopfitters have a global presence with 19 offices worldwide including South East Asia, The Middle East, Europe, The USA and more. ATDC was involved with Kingsmen in all stages of the door design and installation process and delivered its quality shopfront doors to meet all Kingsmen’s tight handover deadlines.

International Popularity

DFS Group is majority owned by Louis Vuitton-it is arguably the world’s leading international goods retailer and has over 9000 employees in 11 countries with a global network of duty free stores. DFS has utilized ATDC’s shopfront doors on many of its international stores such as Hong Kong, Sydney and other Australian and Vietnam stores. ATDC has in most DFS projects worked closely with DFS  as well as the particular specifying architects, structural engineers, project managers and shopfitters to solve all technical, design and installation challenges and to ensure on time handover of a quality product to this high end customer at competitive prices-every time. For examples of other DFS Group projects that ATDC has worked on see article on our Concertina Doors for DFS Hong King Intl Airport on our website.

Integrity and Longevity

The shopfront doors supplied for this project are ATDC’s 300mm panel polycarbonate infill doors –the curtain is manufactured from extruded aluminium sections with interlocking hinges suspended from a rigid overhead support track by commercial grade hangars with metal bearings permitting the curtain to fold, slide and stack in a low friction action for functional integrity and longevity. Each of the shopfront doors supplied on this project had an S-bend curve shape in the top track with a 600mm radius which allowed the door to change position relative to the lease line at different points along the span. Up/down locking mechanisms were supplied on this project to achieve a speedy, efficient and seamless lock up without the need for any permanent mullions to lock on to and without the need for cumbersome removable mullions which are normally used when overhead doors such as roller shutters are used. Whilst keyless emergency egress can be supplied on ATDC’s shopfront doors this was not a requirement for this project. Further information is available on ATDC’s shopfront doors on our website.

ATDC Lockable Security Shutters Complete with Insect Screens

 

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has developed a unique high end lockable security rated shutter targeting primarily the residential market and incorporating both security features and lifestyle benefits alike. For further information see our article on Security Plantation Shutters for Top Level Security on our website.

Insect Screens for Humid Climates

Amongst these lifestyle benefits is an innovative removable insect screen which is particularly applicable in hot humid climates such as Australia to keep out those pesky flies and mosquitoes.

The insect screens are most often supplied with easy to operate turn-on buttons which allow for quick and easy removal when they require cleaning. In a limited number of cases, the particular application may require the insect screens to be permanently screw fastened on. Customers do however need to be mindful of the fact that there may be small gaps between the panels of the security shutters at both the top and the sill where the panels come together.

In addition to this unique insect screen, the lockable security shutters have other important lifestyle benefits such as offering privacy and shade, preserving views with their sliding multi track multi-fold systems and also obvious fire advantages. In addition the adjustability of the individual louvres allows the homeowner to control the amount of sunlight, breeze or fresh air that will flow into the home. Furthermore the aluminium extrusions which form the backbone of this product have a high quality anodised finish which is ideal for installing these lockable security shutters on the external façade of premises enabling them to withstand the weathering effects of the sun’s UV rays as well as the rain, storms and dust. These shutters will not warp, crack, fade or degrade when installed on the building’s exterior surface and this longevity and durability is enhanced by a professional ultra violet resistant powdercoated finish. For further information on the weathering qualities of this product see our article on our Security Shutters in Apartment Complex near Bondi Beach on our website.

Security Features – Premium Grade

The security features of these premium grade lockable security shutters include marine grade reinforced aluminium extrusions which are locked into a heavy duty surrounding metal frame –the locking system is by way of a 3-way patented locking mechanism. The shutters are independently tested by an independent NATA approved testing laboratory to meet the security provisions AS5039 and 5040 of the Australian Security Standards. For further information on this high security product see the article on the Security Plantation Shutters for Top Level Security on our website.

Commercial Applications

Whilst commonly used to cover domestic openings such as French doors and patio doors, sliding glass doors , bi-fold doors and windows, ATDC’s lockable security shutters are also suitable for

ATDC Installs Expandable Barricades for Sydney’s Barrangaroo

Barrangaroo is located on the North West fringe of Sydney’s central business district and spans an area of 22 hectares along Sydney Harbour. It is currently being redeveloped from historical shipping and stevedoring facilities by the Barrangaroo Delivery Authority (on behalf of the NSW State Government) into a world class facility comprising recreational space and parklands, high quality commercial, office and retail space, several new apartment buildings, a hotel and casino. Once completed in 2024 it will have its own metro station and will be home to 3500 residents.

Expandable Barricades for Retail Applications

Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has supplied and installed its expandable barricades at various commercial and retail locations across central and southern Barrangaroo. The retail tenancies secured have required temporary lockup with a robust and safe trackless barrier which requires no structural support, is able to be fully mobile when unlocked during trading hours, and is able to traverse multi-angled shopfront configurations over a wide span.

The expandable barricades installed by ATDC have satisfied all the criteria mentioned above and are also tested under the current OH+S legislation for safety with a comprehensive independent WHS audit.

Installation at Barrangaroo Ferry Terminal

ATDC has also supplied its expandable barricades to the new Barrangaroo Ferry Terminal. Here the double diamond version of the expandable barrier has been supplied since these barricades have been tested by a NATA testing authority under the temporary fencing and hoarding provisions of Australian Standards AS 4687-2007 for dynamic impact, simulated climbing, and foothold aperture test-all these requirements were instrumental in  ATDC winning the expandable barricade contract at Barrangaroo. In this instance ATDC’s product was specified by Cox Architects while the project manager was Gartner Rose (now owned by Lend lease). For further information see our article on the Installation of Safety Barriers at New Ferry Terminal in Sydney.

Double Diamond Mesh Barricades

Whilst the expandable barricades to the retail tenancies were installed at a standard height of 2020mm, those at the ferry terminal were installed at 2400mm high with a maximum available height of 2520mm.These expandable barricades installed at Barrangaroo are all fabricated from steel and run on a series of heavy duty 75mm bottom rubber non marking castors. Floor mounted and wall mounted locking options are available. Further information on ATDC’s double diamond mesh barricades is available on our website.

Aluminium expandable barricades are also available and their anti-corrosive qualities make them more suitable for installation in high saline content marine environments such as coastal, beachside or riverfront locations. Their anti-corrosion characteristics are enhanced by their natural anodised finish which is further complemented by their UV-resistant powdercoated finish. Further information on aluminium barricades is available on our website.

Secure Temporary Tenancies

Typical applications for ATDC’s expandable barricades include securing temporary tenancies, access control for shopping centres and public buildings, Worksafe applications, sports stadiums, entertainment venues, warehouses. They are also available for hire on a long, medium and short term basis. See our article on our Fully Assembled Expandable Rental Barriers for Hire.

Where to Buy Home Security Doors

Where to Buy Home Security Doors

If you’re looking for a security door anywhere in Australia, you need to look for a supplier who has all the latest options and all the new security features. Older doors are rapidly becoming obsolete and they don’t have new features that modern security doors provide. This means older doors are increasingly a target for thieves, vandals and other intruders.

Find the Right Suppliers

When selecting a security door supplier, you need to consider a mix of products and services:

  • Products: The best suppliers have a wide range of products, which indicates expertise and a broad range of services. Look for a good selection of door designs with modern security doors like expanding trellis security doors, which are ideal for large modern homes. The wide range of domestic roller shutters and prowler-proof security screens are also good indicators of a supplier with all the top quality security products you want.
  • Services: Modern security door suppliers also offer services that work directly with your architects and specifiers. These services are excellent for custom made security solutions. They’re great for matching your security needs to your exterior design. You can also ask your suppliers about design options in context with your security needs.
  • Practical advice: The latest security doors are more complex. You can have a range of locking solutions, including 5 point pin locks, and more built into your security doors. You can also get useful advice about onsite security, managing access, and other essentials.
  • Prices: The latest security doors aren’t overly costly. Top suppliers tend to have the best prices and products are priced competitively, so you can expect to get good value from leading suppliers. Forget cheap products; you can afford top quality modern security doors.

Security Credentials – Must Haves for the Security Industry

In Australia, security industry businesses are required by state laws to hold proper security licenses. License holders must demonstrate competence and successful completion of appropriate training in security systems. These licenses also require license holders to be “fit and proper persons” to hold security licenses.

That’s good to know when you’re investing in home security and entrusting the security of your home to your suppliers. The essential point for consumers is that your suppliers must have the right credentials to provide domestic security products and services for your home.

Please also be aware that licensing information should be easily available when you’re dealing with security service providers. Ask for licensing credentials to make sure you’re dealing with a qualified security service.

How Security Door Locks Work

How Security Door Locks Work

If you have an older security door, chances are the lock is obsolete. New technologies are keeping security doors one step ahead of intruders in the arms race for home and commercial security. It’s worth understanding the value of new locking systems for improved security.

Security Door Locks Basics

New triple contact systems with 5 pin cylinder locks (or equivalent) should be a priority when choosing a security door. They will contribute to maximising the strength and effectiveness of your security door. 3-Point locks with an anti-jimmy protective metal plate or extrusion will slow down would-be intruders in their attempts to gain access to your premises, even if they have implements such as crowbars or screwdrivers.

There are also many lock options for added security:

  • For commercial premises – You also want the security door lock to be keyed alike to your master key system for ease of convenience. Master keys are easier to keep secure than a large number of different keys, which may be distributed among multiple parties. Loss of keys and related access problems for staff are also eliminated.

An added advantage of this approach is to ensure that the keys cannot be readily copied. This will give you a greater level of control over who has access to keys and it is particularly important in commercial applications. Restrictive key systems like this are ideal for good onsite security management and they’re highly effective.

  • Always avoid cheap lock imports. They’re cheap mainly because they’re inferior quality locks. Usually, these locks are made of low-grade alloys and have relatively primitive locking mechanisms. Weak locks are a very real, serious, security risk. Australian locks are specifically designed for Australian Standard rated doors and they are much more strongly constructed to meet Australian Standard requirements.

Security Doors Lock Considerations

You’ll need to consider your lock upgrades according to your practical onsite needs:

  • Home security door locks: Replace older locks ASAP. Choose a modern 3 or 5 point lock as the benchmark standard for a new lock. These locks are highly resistant and very reliable. If you’re upgrading your security doors, ask your supplier about lock options.
  • Commercial security door locks: Depending on the type of security doors you have, you may need to consider a combination of a general lock upgrades and a master key system for onsite security. This is a double security approach, managing keys while also ensuring maximum security for your doors. Your lock system should be the latest for your type of security door.

Are Security Doors Effective?

Are Security Doors Effective?

People often wonder whether or not security doors are really effective. Can they actually protect your home or commercial property from would-be thieves? The short answer is yes. Security doors are able to prevent intrusions unless intruders put significant force into gaining entry, usually using tools.

For the most part, simply the presence of security doors will prevent intruders from even attempting entry. They’re a deterrent, they’re a physical barrier, and they’re highly effective.

Security Doors Effectiveness, Explained

The actual performance of security doors needs to be explained:

Given sufficient time and using the right equipment, all security doors can be penetrated. The aim is to ensure that the security door you purchase is less vulnerable to break-ins than others – the Australian Standards AS 5039 and 5040 are an absolute minimum requirement.

Once you have established that the door (and method of installation) is Australian Standard compliant, there are other factors that will increase the likelihood that your security door will be less prone to break-ins than others.

These factors include a full steel frame, steel bar in-fills or stainless steel mesh infill, triple contact locking, and 5-pin cylinder locks (or equivalent). Avoid doors that have aluminium rivets that are exposed to intruders.

Basic flyscreen safety doors that are designed more as insect screens rather than security screen doors will stop insects and bugs (most likely) but they will not be effective against would-be intruders. A good modern security door can also provide this screening function without compromising your home security.

Security Doors Intrusion Prevention Considerations

Generally, the stronger the security door, the less likely it is to be penetrated.  The major issues are actually site-related. Security doors need to be well-suited to reduce the risk of intrusion.

Your security doors are also a useful deterrent, acting as practical obstacles to intrusion:

  • Most intruders will only attempt to force a security door if there are no easy points of access. Trying to force a security door is the most difficult way to gain entry to a property.
  • A heavy duty security door is a very demanding proposition for intruders, even if they do have the equipment required to penetrate it. Modern security doors are rated against force, including direct impacts and attempted leverage of the door frame fixtures. Forcing a security door takes time, and any good onsite security system will spot an attempted entry almost instantly.
  • Commercial security doors are even tougher. These very durable doors may include multiple folding doors, expanding doors, and commercial roller shutters. All of these doors offer very high levels of anti-intruder protection.

Purchasing Security Doors

It is very strongly recommended that residential and commercial property owners seek expert guidance on their choice of security doors. Your doors need to be right for your premises. You can also get useful help and advice from suppliers about access, security measures, locks, and other critical issues.

ATDC Installs Safety Barriers at New Ferry Terminal in Sydney

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed a successful installation of its S04-1 DD double diamond safety barriers at the entry to the new ferry terminal at Sydney’s Barrangaroo.

Safety Barriers Meet Demanding Requirements  

ATDC had to overcome significant challenges to produce a safety barrier of sufficient quality that satisfied the demanding requirements of this state government project. Further information on ATDC’s Double Diamond mesh safety barriers is available on our product page.

Being at the entry to a major utility with high volumes of pedestrian traffic at peak times, public safety was always going to be the primary concern for the government client. It became clear at an early stage that ATDC would have to produce a safety barrier that met the relevant requirements of Australian Standard AS 4687-4007 for Temporary Fencing and Hoardings, In other words the safety barrier had to comply with The Simulated Climbing Test; The Impact Test, The Foothold Aperture Test and the Wind Force Overturn test. ATDC successfully passed all these stringent tests (other than the wind overturn test which couldn’t be properly tested as the safety barrier is an open grille) at an independent NATA testing facility in Sydney. ATDC’s portable safety barrier is the only one of its type in Australia that is now safety rated and compliant under the relevant Australian Standards. ATDC’s safety barriers already hold an independently certified WHS certification rating under the relevant Australian OH+S legislation. Further information on ATDC’s safety barrier testing is available on our product pages.

Configured for Space Efficiency

With this successful certification in place, ATDC was then officially specified by Cox Architects for this prestigious project and ATDC worked closely with Cox on all design aspects of the installation. This included finding the optimum way of configuring these safety barriers so that they are stored in the most space efficient way. Portions of the safety barrier had to be lockable at the same time as other sections remained open in order to control pedestrian flows during the peak periods of the day. The project managers on the job were Gartner Rose. The safety barriers at Barrangaroo were installed at a height of 2400mm.The maximum height available is 2520mm. Other height options are available on request. Each of the safety barrier spans at Barrangaroo measured approximately 8500mm wide although the maximum available width is unlimited.

Safety Barriers – Special Features

ATDC’s safety barriers are now widely regarded as stand out leaders in their field both from both a safety point of view and also from the aspect of their technological advancement. Special features include their compliance for emergency egress under the Building Code of Australia (BCA) where required; their innovative double lattice mesh which prevents persons reaching through the safety barrier mesh; and their different options for seamless secure down locking mechanisms. Trackless, fully mobile and portable, these steel constructed safety barriers can span unlimited widths and require absolutely no overhead support structure. An option for aluminium safety barriers is also available from ATDC. More information is available on ATDC’s range of aluminium safety barriers.

Excellent for securing temporary tenancies, pop-up stores, warehouse loading areas, work-safe areas and construction sites, access control for public utilities and government facilities, crowd control for public venues and many more applications.

With its successful track record and many years of industry experience, ATDC’s in house designers and engineers have, after 2 years of extensive research and development, introduced a precision engineered quality product to the retail industry in Australia which is also price competitive. The 300mm wide panel (FC1) and the 150mm slimline (FC2) panel stackable doors combine strength, style and world class corrosion resistance, all delivered by a new age marine grade material, anodised aluminium. Truly one of the world’s finest commercial doors for retail applications ever launched on the market and designed to cater for the discerning business owner. For further information on ATDC’s widepsan and slimline panel stackable doors read our article on our Commercial Closures at Flight Centre Group Stores.

Heavy Duty and Long Lasting

The curtain of the door is fabricated from heavy duty extruded aluminium sections with interlocking hinges that are suspended from a rigid top support track by industrial grade hangars with metal bearings allowing the curtain to fold, slide and stack in a low friction action making it easy to operate and giving it a longer lasting lifespan. For further information on the technical details of ATDC’s stackable doors view our product information page.

With their  heavy gauge and secure seamless up/down locking mechanisms, ATDC’s commercial stackable doors are able to offer the business owner a speedy, efficient, user friendly lock up option without the need for the cumbersome removable mullions that are regularly utilized when consecutive roller shutters are utilized as a door solution. And where emergency egress is required under the BCA, an emergency breakout door solution is available as an extra over.

Fully Customized Options

ATDC’s stackable doors are customized to each particular project –the span is unlimited and the maximum height is 4500mm-curved apertures are not a problem as the doors can accommodate either a 90 degree curve over a 600mm radius (for the wide panel FC1) or even over a 405mm radius for the slimline panel option. S-bend configurations are also easily achieved where required as well as special curved radii. Additional information on ATDC’s stackable doors can be found in an article on the launch of the new Slimline Panel Accordion Door in Australia.

The above photograph shows a recent project completed by ATDC at the AFL Store in Chadstone Melbourne, the specifying architect was Co-Lab Architecture and the project managers for the job were Minc Services of Melbourne.
