Versatile Security Doors For Counters, Serveries and Reception Desks

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) ‘s versatile security doors are an ideal method of securing the often difficult contours of angled bench tops, counter tops, serveries and reception areas.

ATDC recently installed its curved steel security door to suit the hexagonal shaped bar counter at the Skyring Terrace’s Haven Kiosk at Newstead in QLD. 

Architecturally specified by TwoHill & James of Fortitude Valley, QLD, this unique  folding security door was configured in a curved format with four off 600mm corner radius curves .The door was designed  without the use of any floor track and is instead secured by a series of intermediate up/down locks and commercial grade patio bolts to facilitate seamless lock up without the need for any cumbersome removeable mullions. A professional  high gloss pearl white powdercoat finish was applied to the door for this project. 

Project managers for the job were Lamberts of Coopers Plains.

The Many and Varied Applications of High Speed Doors

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) offers a wide range of rapid roll high speed doors suitable for use in food processing, healthcare, leisure, pharmaceutical and research environments.

High standards of cleanliness are required in food manufacturing.  High speed doors are suitable for all applications where food safety and cleanliness are crucial.

Strict legislation is enforced on medical facilities and hospitals with regards to frequent usage of doors.  Rapid roll high speed doors assist in stopping the spreading of infections in hospitals, operating theatres, intensive care units, patient wards and X-ray rooms.

Doors within leisure centres, swimming pools and sports facilities need to cope with frequent usage while being hygienic at the same time.  High speed doors are ideal for such use in leisure facilities as they are able to cope with high levels of traffic, while at the same time being hygienic, smooth and non-absorbent.  They are resistant to heavy cleaning agents and are rust resistant in such high moisture environments.

Within pharmaceutical applications, research laboratories and cleanrooms, a high level of clean-ability and hygiene is required.  High speed doors do not harbour bacteria, due to the smooth, seamless surfaces and non-porous qualities.  They play a role in maintaining correct room pressures and air circulation rates.

Radio Rentals was formed in 1930 in Brighton, Sussex, UK   with a turnover in the first year of £780. It later moved into televisions and ultimately video recorders. Growth of a public TV service after the war encouraged more people to want TV sets but they were expensive, leaving an opportunity for Radio Rentals to offer them out as an affordable  monthly rental.Video recorders and a range of white goods came next as the business took off.

The Radio Rentals story in Australia began with a single shopfront in Market Street, Sydney in 1937. Today, it  is Australia’s leading household appliance, technology and furniture rental company with over 70 stores in Australia and nearly 30 stores in New Zealand and more than 500 employees.The parent company is Thorn Group Limited.

The City of  Sydney  is working with leading private developers  to create a new and sustainable  $13 billion,14 hectare urban renewal project ,Green Square,  with world-class community facilities and extensive infrastructure.It is projected that by 2030 Green Square will house 61000 people and 22000 new workers,only 3.5km from the cbd in Sydney’s Inner South and 4km from the International Airport at Mascot.

A small part of this investment includes construction of a new community library and The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently installed one of its unique extendable safety barriers to the library entry.

Specified by Sydney architect,Stewart Hollenstein,ATDC worked closely with project managers John Holland in delivering a custom-made  lock up door solution to this prestigious project.ATDC’s S04-1 DD Double Diamond mesh extendable safety  barrier was the door of choice for the project architect since it provided a free standing yet economic security solution and was able to be installed  in the absence of any available support structure.In addition ATDC’s unique barriers not only comply  with the Australian Standards for Temporary Fencing and Hoardings but is also compliant with the emergency egress requirements of the BCA allowing keyless egress in the event of emergency.Being installed at the entry to the public library it was essential that this emergency egress facility was incorporated  into the design of the barrier system.ATDC installed a similar system for the State Transit Authority at Barrangaroo at the entry to the new ferry terminal.For further information see article at

The barrier system was installed at the foot of the stairs to the library entry and was formatted  in a U-shaped configuration to completely surround the balustrading on the stairs.(see photograph of the installation attached).Supplied  at a standard height of 2020mm,the mobile and portable extendable safety barrier was installed on a series of heavy duty non marking thermoplastic castors and was finished in a satin black powdercoat.Intermediate shootbolts which engage with the finished floor were used to stabilize the barrier system which.For further information on the technical aspects of this barrier visit

Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC)’s premium grade security doors were recently installed at a prestigious project at Melbourne’s RMIT University,(project managed by Lendlease).

The  designers for the project,Lyons Architects,specified both ATDC’s S06 heavy duty concertina security door as well as ATDC’s  S04-1 DD Double Diamond Mesh portable security barrier to different parts of the same project.

The S06 concertina security door was specified and installed to numerous locations on this project including over the canteen area  where it spanned a very wide 13 metre opening.Further, there was extremely restricted headroom due to numerous overhead services and the available daylight opening height was  quite limited at  1200mm  .In this application the S06 concertina security door was ideal for a number of reasons.This door requires no headroom at all as it runs off a heavy duty extruded slimline aluminium top track (suspended by an overhead support beam).The S06  retracts and folds sideways to occupy just  a negligible amount of storage room at only 15% of the overall span being secured.(In fact this door can also be set out as a parallel (side by side) top track configuration which requires only an 8% storage factor-this is known as the S07-2 model door refer to ).Moreover, by using a series of intermediate up/down locking mechanisms the client was able to achieve seamless lock up without the need for any bottom  track (removeable or otherwise) to the counter top area and without the need for any cumbersome and unwieldy removeable mullions.For further information on ATDC’s security rated folding security door visit ATDC’s website on

In a different location on this same project ATDC’s S04-1 DD deluxe grade Double Diamond mesh portable security barrier was specified and installed to the university’s rubbish bin storage and bin wash area.In this  instance this trackless  product was ideal since the existence of numerous services prevented any other type of structural door system from being installed.The barrier is portable and free standing and accordingly was an ideal solution for the client.The double diamond mesh meant a very robust  barrier was supplied that could withstand the considerable impact and force it is subjected to in this bin storage area.Also folding and retracting sideways on to itself resulting in only  a minimal storage space requirement.And with both floor and wall mounted locking options an optimal security solution was provided.Further the pitch between the metal cross linkages on this door is only 65mm.This prevents anybody being able to gain a foothold and so deters persons from climbing  over this door –one of its complying characteristics with the Australian Standards for Temporary Fencing and Hoarding.For further information on ATDC’s double diamond barrier in other applications refer to an article at
