There’s a prevailing opinion in the market place that Security scissor doors and security scissor gates only have application in a commercial, industrial or retail environment.

Security Barrier Systems

Unlike many security barrier systems currently available on the market Australian Trellis Door Co’s (ATDC™) security scissor gates fold back out of the way when not in use behind curtains or blinds to 15% of their expanded size making them almost invisible. At night they provide a strong and formidable barrier to burglars.

When locked and closed ATDC’s residential security scissor doors allow maximum daylight to filter into the room they are securing as well as permitting the free flow of fresh air and ventilation, keeping the room light, fresh, bright and breezy.

Precision engineered from either toughened steel or marine grade aluminium, ATDC’s extensive range of residential security scissor doors have multi-point locking options, full frames for maximum strength and rivets constructed from either brass or stainless steel providing that extra reassurance of strength and resistance to an external force or impact.
