The Australian Trellis Door Company™ has installed security trellis gates for Hungry Jacks in Melbourne

The Australian Trellis Door Company™ (ATDC™) has recently installed its security trellis gates for Hungry Jacks in Notting Hill, a suburb of Melbourne.

ATDC worked closely with MAS Building & Construction, a Melbourne based building company, in providing Hungry Jacks with a security solution to its servery counter at its Notting Hill store.

Deluxe Security Gates

ATDC’s S05 deluxe model security trellis gates were ideal for the application-the gates  not only provided the customer with a fully ventilated system for its food specific business but the fact the gates require no headroom at all was a major advantage as there was insufficient room inside the bulkhead to install any sort of overhead door system. Again the absence of the need for any floor tracking mechanism to secure the security trellis gate was an additional benefit. (For further information and a detailed specification on the S05 deluxe model security trellis gate visit ATDC’s website here)This makes the S05 trellis security gates ideal for securing serveries, counter tops, bench tops, reception areas, canteens and the like.

Commercial and Industrial Gates

ATDC’s trellis security gates can span any opening width without the need for any unwieldy removable mullions and by using a series of intermediate up/down locking mechanisms (as was used on the Hungry Jacks project) a seamless effect is created with no obstructions to trade. (For more detailed information on ATDC’s comprehensive range of commercial and industrial security trellis gates please visit ATDC’s website here).

Our Service Areas

ATDC’s security trellis gates are a cost effective alternative to overhead doors and are now sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Geelong, Newcastle, Townsville and Cairns and in all regional centres across Australia.

Commercial Roller Grilles

In the latter case the roller grilles can be operated by key switch control again increasing the security features of the grille. Remote control features are a further option. The motors used are tubular in nature fitting inside the compact axle of the roller grille and so reduces the diameter of the roll providing an advantage in the case of installations where the headroom is limited.

The aluminium components of these commercial roller grilles are available in a clear anodised finish as a standard Powder coating options are an extra over that will allow the grilles to blend into almost any interior or exterior environment.

Added applications for these commercial roller grilles include securing shopping centres, counter tops, reception areas, alcoves, banks, car parks, delivery docks, canteens, schools, offices, commercial showrooms. For further applications and options visit our information page here.

How Secure are Security Doors

What to Look for When Shopping for a Security Door

Installing a security door should help you sleep easy at night knowing that everyone is safe from potential danger. Purchasing one of these doors carries the implication that it holds up to certain standards and requirements. While this is often the case, some companies in Australia have been known to cut corners and use materials that are not considered industry grade quality.

To avoid this worrying trend, we have compiled some key information on finding the highest quality security doors.

Australian Standards 5039-2008

All security doors should comply with Australian Standards 5039-2008. These regulations were formulated by a committee of experts in the industry, including the Australian Window Association, Master Builders Australia, Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia and the National Security Screen Association. This panel of experts decide the materials that should be used in security doors to ensure maximum protection for their owners, while also mandating required performance under a series of strength tests.

There are three aspects this committee has recognised as crucial to the performance and integrity of security screens and doors:

  • The strength of the screen door/window grill or mesh
  • The strength of the adaptor frame and how it is fixed
  • The structural strength of the door frame or window frame

Security Screen Strength Tests

To comply with the relevant code, security tests need to be carried out by an authorised National Association Testing Authority (NATA). These tests determine the strength and reliability of your security screen, window or grille. The tests include:

  • The anti-jemmy test
  • The pull test
  • The dynamic impact test
  • The knife shear test
  • The probe test

Only three tests are applicable under the Australian Standards for sliding security doors. These consist of the pull, anti-jimmy and dynamic impact tests.


Security doors need to be made from sturdy materials that pass these tests and keep your home safe from potential intruders. If you’re in the market for a new security door, make sure that you are aware of all the materials used in the production process. Stainless steel mesh that is durable and corrosion resistant is recommended by industry experts.

Don’t Hesitate to Ask for Written Certification

After purchasing your new security door, it is essential that you ask your provider for a written certification that indicates compliance with Australian Standards 5039-2008. Never be shy about this and always push to make sure that your door provider keeps you informed about the ins and outs of their products.

At The Australian Trellis Door Company™, we guarantee the very highest standards of quality for all of our doors and shutters. We provide all of our customers with the finest security doors and screens on the market as well as the written certification to prove compliance with industry standards.
