Entire Security Door Range Now BCA Compliant

The Australian Trellis Door Co. is proud to announce that, as of 7th November 2012, the entire range of trellis security concertina doors now complies as an Egress Door under the provision of the BCA, subject to the specific limitations contained in the letter of certification (see attached).

Previously, this certification could be narrowly interpreted as applying only to the S06™ model concertina security door.

This development will be particularly appealing in egress applications as it broadens the range of security door options and designs available to the end user. No longer need the requirements of the BCA be an impediment to securing one’s premises. Whilst roller shutters will not comply under BCA, this range of retracting steel security doors will definitely comply.

The concertina security door range is now available throughout Australia including Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Further, The Australian Trellis Door Co. has qualified representative on the ground in every other major Australian city or regional town.

SO6 Steel Security Doors

Australian Trellis Door Co (ATDC™) is proud to introduce one of Australia’s finest steel security doors in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, the SO6 heavy duty steel security door, designed to cater for the discerning homeowner and business owner, combining strength, style and world class functional performance, whilst still being cost effective. ATDC’s SO6 steel security doors have recently surpassed the relevant Australian Security Standards. The SO6 steel security doors are the only trellis type steel security doors on the Australian market which have passed the necessary security related testing requirements click here to check test report.


Stacking Sliding Doors

The Australian Trellis Door Co’s (ATDC™) stackable doors are proving increasingly popular for internal applications in airports, shopping centres and commercial buildings (Folding Closures). The most common infill material is polycarbonate although perforated mesh is also used where ventilation is required. More recently ATDC has met the requirements for glass infills at Melbourne’s new Emporium shopping centre which is a Colonial First State Retail Trust development being built by Grocon, Australia’s largest privately owned construction company. Other infill options for these stackable doors include a grille type brick pattern design.

ATDC’s stackable doors are able to span an unlimited width without the need for any removable mullions. They are proving increasingly popular not only for their nil headroom requirement but also as a preferred alternative to roller shutters which tend to be more of an OH+S problem for staff to operate particularly on the larger size openings.

ATDC’s stackable doors are now sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and Newcastle, and also available in all regional cities and towns across the country.

Finally, Something New in Roller Shutters

Permashield™ Roller Shutters, a division of The Australian Trellis Door Company™, has launched an exciting new range of commercial aluminium roller shutters, which roll up into precision-engineered pelmet boxes.

The concept is widely available within the residential window shutter market but only now is it available commercially.

These new commercial security shutters now fold up into an unobtrusive, slimline pelmet box, concealing the otherwise exposed and unsightly roller mechanism at the top of the shutter. Fabricated from aluminium these pelmet boxes can be powdercoated to match the finish of the roller shutter or to match finish of the premises to which the security shutter is attached.

Ideal for external installations on streetfronts or commercial premises, this pelmet box also provides greater security by effectively providing a tamper protection device. In addition, it also protects the roller shutter mechanism from dust, wind and rain, and also increases the working life of the security shutter.

Also suitable for internal applications such as reception areas, bars, counter tops and hotels where it alleviates the need for the rather expensive option of dropping a ceiling to box in the axle and springs at the top of the shutter.

Expandable Safety Barriers

Whether you are a home owner or business owner, The Australian Trellis Door Co (ATDC™) has a full range of heavy duty and budget grade retractable security doors to suit your application and secure your premises. There are many advantages in using retractable security doors instead of other security systems currently available on the market.

In a domestic application alternative products include stainless steel mesh screens, steel wrought iron and aluminium security doors and domestic roller shutters Stainless steel screens are great however they tend to darken the room whereas retractable security doors allow all the sunlight in making your home bright and airy (SO2 1 ultra deluxe security door system).

Aluminium roller shutters are excellent to secure smaller windows however are not very secure over larger openings such as sliding glass bifold doors as compared to retractable security doors which can secure any opening no matter how wide (SO3 concertina security door system).

Wrought iron doors and aluminium security doors are limited in that they cannot compact back to a manageable size when unlocked and open and so hence tend to obscure your views and create a jail-like effect as compared to retractable security doors which fold back out of the way and tuck away neatly behind curtains or blinds so as to be almost invisible (SO1 economy safety door system).

In commercial applications roller shutters tend to be limiting where headroom is limited and also on wider openings it becomes necessary to use intermediate removeable mullions which tend to be unwieldy and can often lead to maintenance problems and OH+S issues for staff.Retractable security doors on the other hand occupy no head room and can span almost any width at all (SO5 1 heavy duty commercial steel security door).

Roller shutters are difficult to install on curved apertures whereas retractable security doors can accommodate curves as tight as 90 degrees over a 600mm tight radius making them particularly suitable for curved shopfronts,curved restaurant frontages and the like (SO8 curved trellis security door).
