Trellis Doors provide an economical closure solution in tough economic times

The Australian Trellis Door Co (ATDC™) has produced a quality range of economically priced door closure solutions for retailers seeking cost savings in these tough economic times.

ATDC was recently approached by Caffe Cherry Beans to provide a closure solution for their new store opening at Woden Plaza,Canberra.

Having received quotes from different door suppliers in the market to provide a suitable solution for their expansive shopfront,Caffe Cherry Beans was looking for cost effective alternatives after reviewing the expensive proposals it had received for bifold, concertina folding closures.


ATDC’s SO6 model trellis door (pictured) was selected not only for its comparative price advantage but also for its sleek lines and stunning appearance.Fully ventilated for maximum airflow,the SO6 was installed at a height of 4100mm and suspended off a heavy duty extruded aluminium top track with industrial grade hangars and metal bearings.No floor track was required in this instance and intermediate barrel bolt locking into floor sockets at regular intervals provided a practical lock up solution.And in order to reduce the depth of the side stacking of the door a parallel top tracking arrangement was implemented for space savings and stack minimization.


Also available in a curved configuration, these full height trellis security doors are proving a winner.

And for even further cost saving options ATDC’s trackless trellis barriers are worth looking at.Being completely trackless ,these barriers can be set at any height and they can span an unlimited width in a straight line or even a curved format.They are completely detachable and mobile and can be stored off the premises or back of house during trading hours.

Major shopping centre owners and their tenants are lifting their levels of security after a spate of robberies and ram raids across Australia.

The centre owners are facing an increased number of legal claims from tenants whose outlets have been targeted after a break-in at the centre, while customers are also lifting the number of legal claims for compensation related to security and safety issues.

The NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research figures for the five years to September 2012 show that retail store theft rose by 2.8 per cent, including break-ins and ram raids.

One of the companies benefitting from the increased focus on security is Australia’s leading security door group, The Australian Trellis Door Co (ATDC™), whose clients include shopping centre owners Westfield, AMP, Lend Lease, Stocklands, Centro, Colonial Mutual, and Mirvac.

Principal of ATDC, Mr Jonathan Kaplan, said “We have seen a strong increase in demand from both large and small shopping centre owners, who are keen to secure their premises and avoid legal actions from their tenants if break-ins occur.

“It is important that the owners protect the centres’ perimeters correctly to both protect their multi-million dollar investments and those of their tenants, many of whom are taking strong measures to secure their outlets”, he added.

ATDC’s new S06™ heavy duty trellis door is proving to be popular in the centres as it is a concertina style door that can expand across large entrances of up to 15 metres wide and 4 metres in height.

The door is custom designed to secure any door, window or passage opening, while allowing easy operation, security, build quality and flow of air and light, protecting staff at all times and preventing break-ins 24 hours a day.

The company’s Mobile Trackless Barrier is also proving to be popular in shopping centres, as it is a versatile, and completely collapsible trackless barrier door system, allowing access control, securing factory loading docks when the loading dock shutter is open, securing kiosks in shopping centres, securing malls and food-courts and walkways, operating on a series of steel trolleys and rubber castors, making it great for use for the erection of temporary enclosures.

ATDC is an Australian, family owned business led by brothers Jonathan and Richard Kaplan, which has been operating since 1985.

It currently supplies Australasia’s most diverse range of precision engineered expanding trellis security doors in steel and aluminium, which are suitable for securing most residential, commercial and industrial applications, and has remained the market leader in this field.
