High Profile Project at Singapore’s Changi International Airport

ATDC Supplies Security Grilles to Changi International Aiport

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently participated in a high profile project at Terminal 4 at Singapore’s Changi International Airport.

Changi Airport is currently undergoing a massive expansion programme in their plans to expand capacity to 135 million passengers per year by around 2025.Construction includes retail space, hotels, airport facilities, parking facilities and a third runway making it one of Asia’s busiest hubs.

Security Grilles – Space Efficient

Working closely with procurement specialist JEB Asia, ATDC has supplied its unique security grilles to eight tenancies at Changi Airport. Part of the job description included installing security grilles that would both complement a heritage façade yet also enhance the contemporary Asian theme. 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 removable 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. Further information on ATDC’s S07-2 security grilles is available in our product pages.

Custom Designed and Fabricated

The authorities at Changi Airport requested a special precious silver pearl powdercoated finish to blend in with the general finishes of the immediate surroundings of the airport. 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 have are all custom 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 is a very satisfied customer.
