The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) is pleased to announce its involvement in the new Delacombe Town Centre,a $60 million shopping centre development at the corner of Glenelg Highway and Cherry Flat Rd,Ballarat,only an hour and a half drive to the centre of Melbourne.Anchor tenants at the site include Woolworths and Kmart as well as 35 smaller specialty stores,as well as a  500 seat,6 screen Showbiz cinema and medical centre.


ATDC has supplied its premium grade concertina doors to multiple tenancies at the centre including Direct Chemist Outlet,Tatts Lotto,Just Cuts,Toyland,Smart Dollar,Che Modea and more.


As the nominated door contractor for the centre,ATDC worked closely with developer and construction company H.Troon in ensuring timeous delivery under very tight deadlines of its concertina doors.


The concertina doors supplied by ATDC were primarily its 300mm wide panel FC1 model door which  is fabricated from heavy duty extruded aluminium sections with interlocking hinges  suspended from a rigid top support track by industrial grade hangars  allowing the curtain to fold in a low friction action making it easy to operate and giving it a longer lasting lifespan. For further information on  ATDC’s concertina doors view our product information page.Note that ATDC also manufactures a slimline 150mm wide concertina door panel where required.For further information on ATDC’s slimline panel door see article on the launch of the new Slimline Panel Accordion Door in Australia.



These concertina doors were all supplied with  secure seamless up/down locking mechanisms, thus providing all tenants at Delacombe Town Centre  with a speedy, efficient, user friendly lock up option without the need for cumbersome removable mullions. Numerous tenancies also had emergency egress locking options as specified under  BCA, which provide an emergency breakout door solution where required.

All ATDC’s concertina doors at Delacombe Town Centre were supplied with a polycarbonate infill and some tenancies were supplied with doors completed in a natural anodised finish whilst others had a powdercoated finish applied.It should be noted that other infill options are available including perforated mesh or solid aluminium.

ATDC’s concertina 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.

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) is pleased to announce the  installation of its expanding barricades for Ikea’s Richmond outlet in Melbourne.


Ikea is a multi national group and  is the world’s largest furniture retailer with over 400 stores in 49 countries and has sales turnover in excess of 36 billion euros per annum.Ikea sells furniture,home accessories and kitchen appliances.It was founded in Sweden but is headquartered in the Netherlands.


The expanding barricades  installed at Ikea’s Richmond store  are mobile and trackless and have been configured in the most space efficient  way to prevent access to the store by sealing off entry via the escalators in the shopping centre. The  barricades are generally a very effective  access control measure and are often utilized in shopping centres,public and government buildings and entertainment venues for this reason.Being trackless and portable  the expanding barricades require no overhead support structure making them very easy and cost effective  to install since no permanent overhead structural bulkheads are required.

The barricades installed at Ikea Richmond are at a standard height of 2020mm.A standard height of 2520mm is also available and non – standard heights are also available at a premium. The width of these expanding barricades is unlimited due to their unique semi-modular design No matter how wide the span,ATDC always assembles the barricades in manageable sections which are easy and safe to operate –this is achieved by utilizing  intermediate locking mechanisms to separate the barrier into sections.

Fabricated from hardened precision engineered steel sections and with numerous  locking options available, these expanding barricades are formidable and secure  yet are lightweight to operate running on a series of heavy duty 75mm bottom thermoplastic rubber non marking castors. Both steel and aluminium expanding barricades  are available depending on the application with the latter more suitable for installation in a highly corrosive marine environment. For further information on the aluminium expandable gates including specifications and images view our page here.Available in s


OH+S tested for workplace safety and with a comprehensive  and independent WHS Risk Assessment,  ATDC™’s expanding barricades  are  leaders in the temporary barrier field and are also independently tested for the rigorous dynamic impact and  simulated climbing requirements   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 (BCA) in applications where this is  required.For further information on recent  temporary fencing tests please refer to article at here.


Ideal applications for ATDC’s expanding barricades  are to achieve temporary lockup for pop-up stores, kiosks and other temporary tenancies, access control for shopping centres and government and  public buildings (such as railway stations and passenger terminals for instance at  airports, ferry stations), Worksafe applications such as construction sites, events, entertainment venues, securing factory warehouses and loading docks.Also very effective as a  loss prevention tool against theft of merchandise. ATDC’s expanding barricades  are also available for hire in instances where an outright purchase is either unsuitable or beyond one’s capex budget.. For further information on some of these safety applications please read our article here.


ATDC’s expanding barricades are now sold in Sydney,Melbourne,Adelaide,Brisbane,Perth and Canberra as well as in all regional centres across the country including Darwin,Hobart,Townsville,Geelong and Newcastle and are now also exported throughout Southeast Asia,The Asia Pacific,Pacific Islands and the UAE.For information on ATDC’s growing export business visit

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has solved a previously  problematic security issue for Australia’s leading shopping centre group and potentially for all other shopping centres (and similar high volume public entry points to buildings) across the nation.


A rise in the number of break and enters through the main entry doors into shopping centres in Australia has become a burning issue in recent times.This problem is further complicated by the fact that shopping centre entry doors normally fall within the restrictive deemed to satisfy provisions of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and its emergency egress requirements.Hence the difficulty of providing effective security screening which does not fall foul of this quite onerous legislation.


Westfield Doncaster in Melbourne have recently successfully trialled the installation of ATDC’s expandable safety barriers within the airlocks at the entrance to its main entrance in an effort to deter further break-ins to its shopping centre.


The expandable safety barriers  installed at Doncaster comply with the BCA’s deemed to satisfy provisions in all relevant respects namely:


i)the barrier has a height not less than 1980mm;


ii)the barrier does not diminish the existing unobstructed egress width of exits and paths of travel to exits with in the shopping centre;


iii)the barrier can slide open as well as swing open;


iv)numerous provisions relating to doorways serving as a  required exit or forming part of a required exit are not applicable since the barrier is instead a door in a path of travel to a required exit


v)it is readily openable without a key from the inside by a single downward action on a lever positioned approximately 1m from the floor; and


vi)the handle is of a type that the hand of a person who cannot grip wont slip;and the handle has clearance from the back plate of between 35mm and 45mm


ATDC has received an independent certification of compliance-For further information on ATDC’s BCA compliance see their  website at


ATDC manufactures a wide range of expandable safety barriers in both steel and aluminium depending on the particular application.These barriers are portable,trackless,lockable and free standing and are available in either a white or black powdercoated finish.The barriers comply with existing OH+S legislation for workplace safety and in certain instances they comply with the Australian Standards for Temporary Fencing and Hoarding including dynamic impact,foothold and simulated climbing tests.For further information on ATDC’s range of  barriers on offer visit ATDC’s website at


Suitable applications for ATDC’s expandable safety 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.

High Profile Project at Singapore’s Changi International Airport

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently participated in a high profile project at Singapore’s Changi Airport newest terminal, Terminal 4 (T4).See images at

Working closely with procurement specialist JEB Asia,ATDC has supplied its unique security grilles to eight tenancies at T4’s Heritage Zone, which showcases Singapore’s local culture and flavour to international passengers. The Heritage Zone in the transit area gives a glimpse into the evolution of shophouse architecture from the 1880s to the 1950s. Part of the job description included installing security grilles that would  complement the  traditional  façade of the pre-war shop houses built before the Second World War-below the shop houses were the retail shops whilst the second and third stories are residential units.There are preserved shop houses still in existence and they are  under heritage conservation in Singapore’s Katong and Chinatown areas. A further requirement was that the security grilles were to occupy as minimal an amount of storage space as was physically possible when unlocked and opened.

With the above objectives in mind,Changi Airport specified ATDC’’s S07-2- side- by -side retractable security grilles which are among the most space efficient commercial door systems currently available on the world market.By installing the top tracks of these security grilles in a parallel tandem top track configuration,ATDC was able to offer a lock up solution to its client which  occupied a mere  8% of the daylight opening spans of these tenancies.Furthermore,through the use of its seamless up/down locking mechanisms ATDC was able to provide  a lock up solution over considerably wide spans without the need for any cumbersome removeable mullions and without the need for any floor tracking to contain these doors.A further requirement was that the locking mechanisms on the security grilles had to be keyable to the specific master keying system at Changi Airport.For further information on ATDC’’s S07-2 security grilles visit ATDC’s website at

A special precious silver pearl powdercoated finish is applied to blend in with the general finishes of the immediate surroundings of the Heritage Zone. Standard ATDC stock finishes include pearl white or satin black although any Dulux powdercoat finish can be achieved to match any individual colour scheme.

The security grilles we are all customer designed and fabricated  to specific sizes from dimensions that were  detailed on architectural and engineering drawings and they were then  attached  to  structural support frames designed in advance by JEB Asia in conjunction with ATDC.The installation was successfully completed and Changi Airport are a very satisfied customer.

ATDC sells its security grilles in Sydney,Melbourne,Brisbane,Adelaide,Perth and Canberra as well as in all regional areas across Australia including Townsville,Darwin,Hobart,Newcastle and Geelong.ATDC also has a thriving export business with its security grilles now being sold throughout South East Asia and the Asia Pacific region  (including Vietnam,Hong Kong,Malaysia and Indonesia) ,as well as to the UAE,New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.For examples of other international projects which ATDC has participated in please visit ATDC’’s website at or see our article at

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed a large installation of commercial roller shutters at Cardiff RSL in the NSW Hunter Valley.


Specified by Newcastle firm EJE Architecture  and project managed by JMC Building,this project entailed  installing ATDC’’s electric operated widespan RS6 commercial roller shutters to numerous bar counters and poker machine room areas at the club.The purpose of the roller shutter installation was to weatherproof the outdoor gaming rooms,protect the poker machines as well as assist the club in complying with the legislation which prohibits smoking indoors in licensed premises and requires smoking areas to be open to the outdoors in order to allow the smoke to blow away.


The heavy duty commercial roller shutters installed by ATDC at Cardiff RSL allows the venue to move its poker machines into the covered outdoor areas which comply with the above mentioned smoking legislation and also  thereby securing

these areas during closing times against both intruders and the outdoor elements.


The RS6 widespan commercial roller shutters have a 77mm aluminium slat profile and can span up to 6000mm in one section without the need for multiple roller shutters with their normally unwieldy and cumbersome removeable mullions.The slat profile can be supplied in either a solid or a slotted section.In this particular installation the roller shutters were supplied with electric operation by way of keyswitch mechanisms which operated the shutters through a group control mechanism which allowed the roller shutters to operate either individually or as a series operating simultaneously.A back up battery was also installed to ensure that the shutters can still operate  in the event of a power  failure at the club.For further technical information on the RS6 commercial roller shutter please visit ATDC’’s website at


ATDC’’s commercial roller shutters have many applications and are suitable for securing shopfronts,shopping centres,warehouses,banks,showrooms,hotels,universities,schools,carparks and other commercial and government buildings.The shutters are sleek,unobtrusive and strong and roll up completely out of the way when not in use so as not to obstruct the opening at all.Top pelmet boxes are an optional extra in cases where the drum rolls are installed below ceiling height.For further information on ATDC’’s slimline roller shutters see an article at

Australian Domestic Security Grilles Now Exported to New Caledonia

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) is rapidly developing a reputation for its quality exports of security doors, security shutters and folding doors from Australia to The Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia and The Pacific Islands.

Domestic Security Grilles – Quality Exports

Whilst there is a vast predominance of commercial security grilles being exported to countries such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Fiji (amongst others) there is also a surprising trend of a growing demand for ATDC’s premium grade domestic security grilles for the residential market, particularly more recently in The Pacific Island nation of New Caledonia and its capital Noumea where there is a considerable level of break and entry into residential properties on the island.

High Quality and Cost Effective

ATDC’s focus is on producing both high quality and cost effective and competitive domestic security grilles which retract sideways completely out of the way when not in use and are easily concealed behind curtains or blinds. When locked and closed they create  a formidable deterrent with their triple contact locking mechanisms, full metal frames, heavy duty mesh infills and either stainless steel, brass or aluminium rivets which are used in a non-pivoting function to increase the strength and useful life of the security grilles. The locked and closed security grilles form an open grille which allows sunlight and ventilation to filter through keeping your home light and breezy in the hot summer months, also featuring an optional flyscreen to keep out those pesky insects and mosquitoes in the more humid climates. Further information is available in our blog article on the insect roll-way spring-loaded insect screens which are adapted to these security grilles.

Higher Level Security

ATDC’s domestic security grilles are ideal for securing wide span openings such as sliding glass bi-fold doors, patio doors, French doors and carports as well as also securing narrower passageways, alcoves, front doors and windows. Track arrangements are optional but recommended in areas where a higher level security is required. It’s important to note that floor tracks are able to be installed in ways that do not present a trip hazard to the homeowner (For instance recessing the bottom track or installing it alongside a window or door sill). For further applications for ATDC’s domestic security grilles read our article on gates for residential applications.

Fabrication Options

The domestic security grilles are fabricated in either a toughened galvanized steel or marine grade anodised aluminium and powdercoated in a high quality ultra violet resistant black satin or pearl white finish whilst other powdercoated options are available on request to match almost any colour scheme. Further information is available on ATDC’s full range of domestic security grilles.

ATDC Installs Commercial Security Plantation Shutters at Camilla Franks Store

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has installed its premium grade commercial Security 365 security plantation shutters at Camilla Franks’ boutique store at Sydney’s, Bondi Beach.

Camilla Franks is one of Australia’s premier fashion labels and their products are in very high demand making them a primary target for criminals who have frequently attempted to break in to the clothing group’s multiple stores on numerous occasions.

Security Plantation Shutters – Sleek and Stylish

ATDC’s sleek and stylish security plantation shutters were seen as an ideal fit for the clothing group since they provided both a security rated solution whilst not detracting from the overall feel and look of these traditionally themed retail premises. A high quality satin white powdercoat finish was applied to the shutters to complement Camilla’s corporate colours. The security shutters were installed across the shopfront to protect their high value merchandise and they were also installed to a dedicated room to provide privacy for VIP clients and to conduct private showings. ATDC were required to design and install some elaborate structural frames to support the security shutters including special purpose welded posts and steel support beams. Both hinged and bi-folding shutters were installed.

Strong and Secure

The strength of ATDC’s security plantation shutters are provided by its 3-way locking mechanism, full extruded heavy duty frame, and the reinforced aircraft grade aluminium louvres. All combined with the timeless style of traditional looking plantation shutters. Further information is available on ATDC’s security rated plantation shutters including features and images.

Commercial Grade for Durability

Further benefits provided by these commercial grade security plantation shutters include their durability, longevity and their ability to withstand the highly corrosive environment (in this case installed across the road from the beach) of Bondi with its extremely high saline content level and damaging weathering effects-the shutters will not warp, crack, fade or tarnish, characteristics further enhanced by the ultra violet inhibitors present in the high quality powdercoat finish. For further information on the durability of the product read our article on Plantation Shutters Built for Durability.

Residential and Commercial Options

ATDC’s security plantation shutters are suitable for both commercial and residential applications and can be installed in fixed, hinged, sliding or multi fold track configurations depending on each application and the requirements of the customer. They can be installed to cover doors, windows, patio enclosures and more. In residential applications a flyscreen feature is an added option particularly in humid climates where insects are a problem. And they can be installed in a way which not only provides the homeowner with privacy but also preserves any views by folding completely out of sight. For further information on how ATDC’s security plantation shutters can preserve your views read our article Security Shutters in Apartment Complex in Bondi Beach.

ATDC’s Security 365 security plantation shutters are now sold in Sydney and Melbourne with plans to expand shortly into Brisbane and Perth. For further information contact ATDC toll free from anywhere in Australia.


ATDC Installs Commercial Security Grilles for North Sydney Railway Station

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed an installation of its premium grade commercial security grilles for North Sydney Railway Station.

Commercial Security Grilles – Premium Grade

Installed at the interchange entry leading from the railway station through to Greenwood Plaza Shopping Centre, ATDC’s commercial security grille was installed to structural supports provided by Simco, the project managers for this job. The 6000mm wide grille was designed to retract back to a compact storage area of only 15% of the total area secured so as to be almost invisible during trading hours. Having recessed floor track, the commercial security grille is no impediment to the free flow of foot traffic at the railway interchange which is extremely heavy particularly during peak times. A removable floor cover plate is in place during opening hours to create a seamless effect to the finished floor. The works for Simco were all carried out by ATDC late at night so as not to interfere with the running of Sydney’s trains. For other instances of ATDC’s commercial security grilles promoting the free flow of pedestrian foot traffic at public thoroughfares see an article about our security gates being supplied for the Townsville Rail.

Unique Locking Arrangement – BCA Compliance

A unique magnetic locking arrangement was installed on the commercial security grille on this project in order to comply with the BCA (Building Code of Australia). The magnetic lock is generally wired to the building’s fire indicator panel and is designed to automatically unlock and release in the event of fire. In effect this arrangement creates a keyless egress system for emergency exit. ATDC does have other alternative locking methods for complying with the BCA, the type used depending on the nature and suitability of the particular project at hand. For ATDC’s locking compliance with the BCA refer to our information on our Security Shutters S06.

Securing Railway Stations Across Australia

ATDC’s commercial security grilles are particularly appealing to Australian railway stations due to their heritage design and for this reason they are used quite frequently for securing railway stations across the country. Queensland Rail, WA Rail, Vic Rail, Metrail and Sydney’s Light Rail and NSW State Rail are all frequent customers. The heritage design has its origin in the scissor doors that appeared in many elevators and lifts in years gone by. For further information on the widespread use of ATDC’s commercial security grilles to railway stations see an article on our security door project for Sydney Light Rail.

Our Security Grilles – Enquire Today

ATDC’s commercial security grilles are now sold in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and across all regional centres across the country including Newcasle, Geelong, Wollongong and Townsville.

ATDC Installs Security Door at Woolworths in Brisbane

The Australian Trellis Door Company™ (ATDC™) has installed its formidable security door at Woolworths Supermarket at Hope Island near Brisbane.

Sliding Security Doors
