( http://www.afr.com/business/retail/fmcg/new-australian-geographic-owners-have-no-amazon-fears-20170630-gx2bcm

The company continues to simultaneously  invest in its digital and online  prescence while rolling out this considerable investment in bricks and mortar outlets across the country.

Aplin Creative,a creative interior design studio out of Darlington in Sydney ,has specified The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC)’s folding closure doors  and its other retail shopfront doors for  the Australian Geographic national store rollout.ATDC has been coordinating works with the many different appointed shopfitters to the various new store builds  across Australia to ensure timely delivery and installation in order to meet handover deadlines.ATDC is a renowned retail shopfront door specialist having been involved in many high profile store rollouts over the past decade.For further information see article at www.trellisdoors.com.au/atdc-rolls-out-customised-security-doors-and-service-to-major-retailers

NEW REQUIREMENT FOR MEDICAL SCRIPTS FOR CODEINE LEADS TO UPSURGE IN BREAK AND ENTERS AND A FOCUS ON PHARMACY SECURITY

Codeine is an opiate and is typically used to treat mild levels of pain and is also used in the treatment of  diarrhoea.  Pharmacy security has become increasingly important as a result of many recent break-ins targeting medicines containing Codeine.

From 1 Feb 2018 new government legislation came into effect requiring all products containing codeine to be sold in pharmacies with a medical script.This affects many well known household brands such as Panadeine and Nurofen Plus for example which now require a doctor’s script.

This decision was made by the Therapeutic Goods Administration on the basis that Codeine is an opioid drug and,as such,can cause opioid tolerance,dependence and even death.

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC), a leading national Australian security door and barrier specialist supplier has recently seen a significant rise in enquiries for its shopfront security doors as a direct result of break and entry into pharmacies across the country.Pharmacy clients are  frequently  commenting  that this is a direct result of the new codeine related legislation making these codeine related products more valuable on the street for re-sale by criminal elements.The sheer number of these enquiries has been noticeable and mainly entail  pharmacists seeking advice on  methods of deterring forced entry through the pharmacy shopfront doors/windows.Typical methods of forced entry include traditional smash and grab attempts but also the more recent ramraiding technique using vehicles.

Pharmacies have traditionally  been a natural target for criminals given the nature of their stock with high value drugs such as pseudoephedrine being a typical example.

ATDC has supplied its shopfront security doors to secure the premises of countless pharmacies across the country having previously been a preferred supplier to the Pharmacy Guild of Australia.See article at www.trellisdoors.com.au/security-doors-for-chemists-and-pharmacies

ATDC’s S06 shopfront security door is compliant with the Australian Standards for Sliding security doors having been tested in an independent NATA laboratory against dynamic impact,anti-jemmy and pull force testing.This security door  is top hung with a full metal frame,secure locking and high tensile strength material.It folds back out of sight when not in use during trading hours and as such is an added bonus to retailers wishing to maximize visual display of merchandise .ATDC has certain innovative side stack storage options to minimize impact on retail space.Refer to ATDC’s website for further information on this unique S06 security door at www.trellisdoors.com.au/product/commercial-security/secuity-screens-and-screen-doors/S06-concertina-security-shutters

Australian Trellis Security Doors Protect Pope

Pope Francis’ most  recent visit to Kenya was his first visit to the African continent and he was the  Roman Catholic Church’s second  Pope to  visit that country after Pope John Paul II who made three such visits to Kenya.

During that  visit ,Pope Francis met the Kenyan President and he  held an open  mass at Nairobi University including undertaking numerous other activities.In the attached photograph  he  can be seen conducting a religious ceremony on that Kenyan visit whilst in the background the Trellis Security Doors are clearly visibly locked and closed and secure.

The Trellis Security Doors in full view are the cutting edge S09 Alumax Style retractable aluminium security doors.These security doors are fully framed for extra strength and are extremely robust and secure with a high grade  3 -point locking system and their heavy duty marine grade extruded sections.With a clear anodised finish and a professional powdercoat application  these security doors have an extremely sophisticated finish-the perfect choice  security product  for the discerning homeowner and business owner.When unlocked and opened, these security doors retract and  fold back to form a neat and compact stacking factor of only 20% of the total opening span  that is being secured.Ideal for both residential applications (often folding back and concealed by blinds or curtains) and also for commercial applications providing an unobtrusive storage area so as not to impede through flow of pedestrian traffic and further  to preserve visual display of merchandise in retail applications.For further technical specifications and product  information on ATDC’s S09 product view article at www.trellisdoors.com.au/all-aluminium-scissor-doors-and-gates

Counter Top Security Screens With Style

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently successfully completed an installation of its attractive curved  counter top security screens at the  Rydges Sails Resort in Port Macquarie.

The screens were  part of a multimillion dollar building refurbishment at this stunning bayside location and were specified in order to complement the stylish and contemporary design of this iconic waterfront destination.

The specifying architects on the project were Hamilton Hayes Henderson and the project managers  are Lipman Pty Ltd.The S08 curved security screen  was the specified product.For further technical information on the S08 product please visit ATDC’s website at www.trellisdoors.com.au/product/commercial-security/security-screens-and-screen-doors/stacking-doors-s08

The curved security screen was the ideal product for this application given that the counter top had virtually no available headroom to install overhead screens.And the need to accommodate a tight curved radius made the S08 curved security screen the product of choice since it is capable of achieving tight  turns of 90 degrees over a 600mm radius.

Through the use of multiple intermediate up/down locking mechanisms along the span of the opening ,a seamless lock up capability was achieved without the need for utilizing any floor tracking of any kind to secure the system in its locked position.See recent article on ATDC’s curved screens at www.trellisdoors.com.au/fw-spectacular-commercial-security-screens-kooringal-golf-club

Heavy duty industrial grade top wheels with metal bearings and heavy duty top hangars ensure a low friction,smooth,and easy operation of the screens and assist in retaining the longevity and functional integrity of the door. See further recent article at www.trellisdoors.com.au/atdc-completes-expanding-door-installation-for-healthcare-facility-in-sydney

Whilst the standard stock finishes for this screen are either a black satin or pearl white powdercoat,the special powdercoated finish for the screens for this project as nominated by the architects was a high gloss Dulux Venerable Silver.

Smart Folding Doors Rev up Ferrari Showroom

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently installed its high end folding doors at the Ferrari Showroom at Star City Casino, Sydney.

 The job description was essentially to protect the high value merchandise with  a smart,elegant,corporate looking folding door system which would complement the prestigious Ferrari brand image without costing a fortune.

The technical requirements demanded a closure that could span a multi-curved 44 metre wide retail frontage at 3m in height which folded back to occupy a minimum amount of storage space when unlocked and opened during trading hours. And further to provide maximum visual display of the Ferraris during the limited times the shop remains closed.

ATDC’s FC1 wide panel folding door easily satisfied and even surpassed  all these requirements.  The 300mm wide panel door was installed with its  heavy duty top track , heavy duty industrial grade top roller wheels and interlocking heavy duty hinges  providing a low friction, easy operation despite the expansive size of the door.  And by utilizing multiple intermediate keyed alike up/down locking mechanisms a seamless lock up is achieved without the need for any cumbersome removable mullions nor any floor tracking.  For further information on this product see an article at www.trellisdoors.com.au/fw-spectacular-commercial-security-screens-kooringal-golf-club

The folding doors at the Ferrari showroom are finished in a professional natural anodised finish which is standard for these doors although a full range of powdercoated options are available on request from the Dulux Range of powdercoated finishes.  For further information on this product see ATDC website at www.trellisdoors.com.au/products/commercial-security/folding-doors-and-shop-doors

Premium grade portable barriers Installed at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant at LAX

Premium grade portable barriers have been installed at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant at LAX International Airport in Los Angeles.

Portable Barriers – Premium Grade

Wolfgang Puck is an Austrian Born-American and is an internationally renowned celebrity chef, award winning restaurateur, newspaper columnist, famous television personality, part time actor and philanthropist. His group’s activities also include catering services, cookbooks and premium grade licensed products.

The portable barriers installed at Wolfgang Puck’s LAX restaurant are mobile and trackless and have been configured in a multi-angled shape to accommodate the unique contours of the storefront. Being trackless and free standing, these portable barriers require no headroom at all which is normally a necessity for overhead door systems and they require no overhead support structure making them easy and economical to install since no structural bulkheads are required. Available in standard heights of 2020mm or 2520mm (or available in custom made heights as required), the span of these portable barriers is unlimited due to their unique semi-modular design and thereby the need for heavy, unsafe and unwieldy removable mullions is avoided making it easy and safe for staff to operate. The portable barriers are able to  blend in with the aesthetics of the storefront with  their sharp precision angled lines and high quality gloss powdercoated finish (standard finishes are either a black satin or a pearl white although any finish in the dulux Australian powdercoat range is available as an extra over option).

The Manufacturing Process

Manufactured from precision engineered high tensile steel sections and with both wall mounted and floor mounted  locking options, these portable barriers are compact, sturdy and formidable yet are very easy  to operate running on a series of low friction  heavy duty 75mm bottom thermoplastic rubber non marking bottom castors. Both steel and aluminium portable barriers are available with the latter more suitable for installation in a highly corrosive marine environment such as coastal, beachside or riverfront locations. The natural anodised and UV-resistant powdercoated finishes provide the extra anti-corrosion qualities of these quality aluminium barriers.

Tested and Approved

OH+S tested under the Australian legislation for safety and with a detailed, written and independently audited WHS Risk Assessment, The Australian Trellis Door Company’s (ATDC) portable barriers are stand out leaders in the field and are also independently tested in an approved NATA laboratory  for dynamic impact, simulated climbing and wind force overturn conditions under the Australian Standard AS 4687 -2007 Temporary Fencing and Hoardings. Further testing has been successfully completed for emergency egress under the Building Code of Australia where required.

ATDC’s portable barriers are also available in a double diamond lattice pattern with the steel mesh tightly interwoven resulting in the pitch between the metal cross linkages at a mere 65mm to 70mm. This prevents people putting their hands through the mesh to reach merchandise on the other side of the barrier making the portable barriers an extremely effective loss prevention aide.

Security for Retailers

Suitable applications for ATDC’s portable barriers include achieving temporary security for pop-up stores, kiosks and other temporary retail tenancies, access control for shopping centres and public buildings (such as railway stations and passenger terminals for instance at airports, ferry stations, bus terminals), Worksafe applications such as construction sites, sports stadiums, public events, entertainment venues, securing of warehouses and loading docks. ATDC’s portable barriers are also available for hire on a long, medium term or short term basis.

Portable Safety Barriers at The Australian National Maritime Museum

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed an installation of its premium grade aluminium portable safety barriers at Sydney’s Darling Harbour for The Australian National Maritime Museum.

Our Portable Safety Barriers

The Maritime Museum tasked ATDC with replacing its existing fixed barrier systems which were in  poor condition having badly corroded, faded and tarnished  due to their  proximity to the marine environment at Sydney Harbour. Further, the Museum wanted to remove their fixed barrier systems which were previously in place since they were a permanent eyesore and were not welcoming to the public, the requirements for their new perimeter fencing were that when unlocked the barriers were to be tucked away and stored completely out of site and further, that they would be able to withstand the highly corrosive surrounding marine environment.

ATDC installed its all-aluminium portable safety barriers to achieve these dual objectives of the Maritime Museum. ATDC’s  barriers are manufactured   from high tensile 20mm x 1.8mm all aluminium square box sections and have solid stainless steel rivets- these portable safety barriers have an anodised finish to 25 microns, making them suitable for installation in a highly corrosive marine environment with a high saline content. Their non-marking thermoplastic rubber tread castors make them suitable for any installation on any type of finished floor. Their professional powdercoated finish has UV inhibitors so they will not fade or tarnish in sunlight where installed on the exterior of buildings. Further information is available on ATDC’s aluminium portable safety barriers, including specifications and images.

Semi-Modular Design

Completely retractable, mobile, trackless and able to span an unlimited width makes these portable safety barriers suitable for securing extremely large openings typical at high thoroughfare public access areas such as ports, airports and railway stations. Available in standard heights of 1200mm or 1800mm (or available in custom made heights as required), the span of these portable safety barriers is unlimited due to their unique semi-modular design and thereby the need for removable mullions is avoided making them very easy to operate.

Various Locking Options

Also available from ATDC is a high tensile steel product and with both wall mounted and floor mounted locking options, these portable safety barriers are compact and strong yet are very easy to operate running on a series of low friction heavy duty thermoplastic rubber non marking bottom castors. ATDC’s steel portable safety barriers are safety tested for OH+S compliance and have also been successfully tested for compliance to Australian Standards AS 4687-2007 for Temporary Fencing and Hoardings. Further information is available on ATDC’s steel portable safety barriers including specifications and images.

 Temporary Security Applications

Suitable applications for ATDC’s portable safety barriers include achieving temporary security for pop-up stores, kiosks and other temporary tenancies, access control for shopping centres and public buildings, worksafe applications such as construction sites, sports stadiums, public events, entertainment venues, securing of factory loading docks. ATDC’s portable safety barriers are also available for hire. For further information on some of these safety applications please see article on our Safety Barriers in the Industrial Sector.
