Scissor Doors and Gates

These precision engineered aluminium scissor doors and gates are manufactured from marine grade aluminium and combine strength, stylish design and first class corrosion resistance. They can be colour matched to suit almost any environment.

Multi-point Locking Options

Suitable for the most discerning homeowner and business owner, these aluminium scissor doors retract sideways almost completely out of the way when not in use and folding back to less than 15% of their expanded width. Multi-point locking options are available.

Now available in aluminium in either a fully framed security door or simply as a retractable trackless security barrier, ATDC’s aluminium scissor doors gates are lockable and secure.

Anti-corrosive Qualities

ATDC recently completed a successful installation of its S09™ Alumax aluminium scissor door at Pialba Place Shopping Centre, Hervey Bay (pictured) – this door was specified for its excellent anti-corrosive qualities given the high saline content of the marine environment in the area of the installation and given that this installation is very close to the ocean. Incorporating stainless steel fixings and concealed stainless steel rivets, these security doors are designed for longevity.

ATDC Secures the Largest Portable Gate Contract in Australia

The Australian Trellis Door Company™ (ATDC™) has recently completed the largest contract ever awarded in Australia for trackless trellis security doors.

Trackless Security Doors

Castle Towers Shopping Centre in Sydney’s Castle Hill, owned by QIC and Australia’s second largest shopping centre in gross lettable area after Chadstone Shopping Centre in Melbourne. According to Wikipedia Castle Towers is one of only six shopping centres in the Sydney metropolitan area to contain two full-line department stores. Castle Towers has recently contracted ATDC to supply and install 250 lineal metres of temporary security barriers to secure multiple locations in the shopping centre. Access control in such a large centre is paramount and the barriers were accordingly installed across mall areas, around escalators and travelators and stairwells and across food courts. All the barriers were installed at a height of 2000mm to serve as an effective deterrent.

Improvements to Portable Gates

For this contract, ATDC introduced new improvements to its portable gates including utilizing 75mm rubber castors with metal bearings allowing for smoother operation of the barriers. In addition, engineered metal lockable arms were installed to contain the doors in their stacked position allowing for easier handling.

The installation was carried out over 4 nights to ensure the tenants at Castle Towers were able to continue trading uninterrupted. Major tenants at Castle Towers include David Jones, Myer, Target, Kmart, Coles, and Event Cinemas etc.

The result was a success. James Gibbeson, the centre’s operations manager said, “The guys were professional and completed all tasks without risk. The barricades themselves present well and I’m impressed with the smoothness of the wheels.”

ATDC‘s barriers have multiple applications including 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, useful for temporary tenancies and pop up shops and also for providing worksafe areas.

The system can span an unlimited width at any angle, even in a curved format, and can be wheeled away when not in use and stored out of sight. Customers of this product include Westfield, AMP, Lend Lease, Stocklands, Centro, Colonial Mutual, and Mirvac.

The barriers are fabricated from steel, are precision engineered and have a professional powder-coated high gloss finish for durability and to stand the test of time. The ATDC is an Australian, family owned business led by brothers Jonathan and Richard Kaplan, which has been operating since 1985.

Supplying Australia with Security Doors

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.

Retractable Security Barrier Secures Star Carwash

Australian Trellis Door Company’s (ATDC™) retractable security barrier is being widely used across the rapidly expanding Star Carwash network primarily to secure the on-site cleaning chemicals and compounds.

Retractable Security Barriers

With many of these wash bays now being installed in the high traffic car parks of many of the country’s leading shopping centre networks (such as those owned by Westfield, LendLease, QIC and AMP) the onsite cleaning chemicals need to be stored safely and securely and out of reach of the general public. Many of these wash bays are installed in difficult shaped locations with numerous limitations such as low height ceilings and odd-shaped apertures.

Portable and Trackless

ATDC’s retractable security barrier is proving to be an effective solution for the Star Carwash group. The system is completely portable, trackless and retractable; it can span any width and can accommodate any angle (even curved configurations).

Numerous of ATDC’s barriers have been recently tested as compliant in certain circumstances against the Australian Standard 4687-2007 Temporary Fencing and Hoardings. Further, ATDC’s barriers have an independently audited comprehensive WHS Risk Assessment for added workplace health and safety certainty. A standout leader in its field, ATDC’s retractable security barriers are setting the industry benchmark for quality and safety. Additional special features include BCA compliant egress locking facilities which allow for keyless exit in the event of emergencies.

Application Options

Applications include securing almost any type of opening including airports, railway stations, government buildings, shopfronts, shopping centre foodcourts, warehouse entries, loading docks, temporary tenancies, outdoor eateries and restaurants, hotels, pubs and clubs, partitioning, crowd control, access control and many more.

Recent overseas installations of ATDC’s retractable security barriers include Hong Kong International Airport, Heathrow International Airport, Port Moresby International Airport, Nadi International Airport-Fiji.
