The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed a large installation of commercial roller shutters at Cardiff RSL in the NSW Hunter Valley.


Specified by Newcastle firm EJE Architecture  and project managed by JMC Building,this project entailed  installing ATDC’’s electric operated widespan RS6 commercial roller shutters to numerous bar counters and poker machine room areas at the club.The purpose of the roller shutter installation was to weatherproof the outdoor gaming rooms,protect the poker machines as well as assist the club in complying with the legislation which prohibits smoking indoors in licensed premises and requires smoking areas to be open to the outdoors in order to allow the smoke to blow away.


The heavy duty commercial roller shutters installed by ATDC at Cardiff RSL allows the venue to move its poker machines into the covered outdoor areas which comply with the above mentioned smoking legislation and also  thereby securing

these areas during closing times against both intruders and the outdoor elements.


The RS6 widespan commercial roller shutters have a 77mm aluminium slat profile and can span up to 6000mm in one section without the need for multiple roller shutters with their normally unwieldy and cumbersome removeable mullions.The slat profile can be supplied in either a solid or a slotted section.In this particular installation the roller shutters were supplied with electric operation by way of keyswitch mechanisms which operated the shutters through a group control mechanism which allowed the roller shutters to operate either individually or as a series operating simultaneously.A back up battery was also installed to ensure that the shutters can still operate  in the event of a power  failure at the club.For further technical information on the RS6 commercial roller shutter please visit ATDC’’s website at


ATDC’’s commercial roller shutters have many applications and are suitable for securing shopfronts,shopping centres,warehouses,banks,showrooms,hotels,universities,schools,carparks and other commercial and government buildings.The shutters are sleek,unobtrusive and strong and roll up completely out of the way when not in use so as not to obstruct the opening at all.Top pelmet boxes are an optional extra in cases where the drum rolls are installed below ceiling height.For further information on ATDC’’s slimline roller shutters see an article at

Australian Domestic Security Grilles Now Exported to New Caledonia

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) is rapidly developing a reputation for its quality exports of security doors, security shutters and folding doors from Australia to The Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia and The Pacific Islands.

Domestic Security Grilles – Quality Exports

Whilst there is a vast predominance of commercial security grilles being exported to countries such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Fiji (amongst others) there is also a surprising trend of a growing demand for ATDC’s premium grade domestic security grilles for the residential market, particularly more recently in The Pacific Island nation of New Caledonia and its capital Noumea where there is a considerable level of break and entry into residential properties on the island.

High Quality and Cost Effective

ATDC’s focus is on producing both high quality and cost effective and competitive domestic security grilles which retract sideways completely out of the way when not in use and are easily concealed behind curtains or blinds. When locked and closed they create  a formidable deterrent with their triple contact locking mechanisms, full metal frames, heavy duty mesh infills and either stainless steel, brass or aluminium rivets which are used in a non-pivoting function to increase the strength and useful life of the security grilles. The locked and closed security grilles form an open grille which allows sunlight and ventilation to filter through keeping your home light and breezy in the hot summer months, also featuring an optional flyscreen to keep out those pesky insects and mosquitoes in the more humid climates. Further information is available in our blog article on the insect roll-way spring-loaded insect screens which are adapted to these security grilles.

Higher Level Security

ATDC’s domestic security grilles are ideal for securing wide span openings such as sliding glass bi-fold doors, patio doors, French doors and carports as well as also securing narrower passageways, alcoves, front doors and windows. Track arrangements are optional but recommended in areas where a higher level security is required. It’s important to note that floor tracks are able to be installed in ways that do not present a trip hazard to the homeowner (For instance recessing the bottom track or installing it alongside a window or door sill). For further applications for ATDC’s domestic security grilles read our article on gates for residential applications.

Fabrication Options

The domestic security grilles are fabricated in either a toughened galvanized steel or marine grade anodised aluminium and powdercoated in a high quality ultra violet resistant black satin or pearl white finish whilst other powdercoated options are available on request to match almost any colour scheme. Further information is available on ATDC’s full range of domestic security grilles.

View Our Range!

ATDC’s domestic security grilles are sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra as well as in most regional towns across the country including Newcastle, Woollongong, Geelong, Townsville, Darwin and more.

ATDC Installs Commercial Security Plantation Shutters at Camilla Franks Store

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has installed its premium grade commercial Security 365 security plantation shutters at Camilla Franks’ boutique store at Sydney’s, Bondi Beach.

Camilla Franks is one of Australia’s premier fashion labels and their products are in very high demand making them a primary target for criminals who have frequently attempted to break in to the clothing group’s multiple stores on numerous occasions.

Security Plantation Shutters – Sleek and Stylish

ATDC’s sleek and stylish security plantation shutters were seen as an ideal fit for the clothing group since they provided both a security rated solution whilst not detracting from the overall feel and look of these traditionally themed retail premises. A high quality satin white powdercoat finish was applied to the shutters to complement Camilla’s corporate colours. The security shutters were installed across the shopfront to protect their high value merchandise and they were also installed to a dedicated room to provide privacy for VIP clients and to conduct private showings. ATDC were required to design and install some elaborate structural frames to support the security shutters including special purpose welded posts and steel support beams. Both hinged and bi-folding shutters were installed.

Strong and Secure

The strength of ATDC’s security plantation shutters are provided by its 3-way locking mechanism, full extruded heavy duty frame, and the reinforced aircraft grade aluminium louvres. All combined with the timeless style of traditional looking plantation shutters. Further information is available on ATDC’s security rated plantation shutters including features and images.

Commercial Grade for Durability

Further benefits provided by these commercial grade security plantation shutters include their durability, longevity and their ability to withstand the highly corrosive environment (in this case installed across the road from the beach) of Bondi with its extremely high saline content level and damaging weathering effects-the shutters will not warp, crack, fade or tarnish, characteristics further enhanced by the ultra violet inhibitors present in the high quality powdercoat finish. For further information on the durability of the product read our article on Plantation Shutters Built for Durability.

Residential and Commercial Options

ATDC’s security plantation shutters are suitable for both commercial and residential applications and can be installed in fixed, hinged, sliding or multi fold track configurations depending on each application and the requirements of the customer. They can be installed to cover doors, windows, patio enclosures and more. In residential applications a flyscreen feature is an added option particularly in humid climates where insects are a problem. And they can be installed in a way which not only provides the homeowner with privacy but also preserves any views by folding completely out of sight. For further information on how ATDC’s security plantation shutters can preserve your views read our article Security Shutters in Apartment Complex in Bondi Beach.

ATDC’s Security 365 security plantation shutters are now sold in Sydney and Melbourne with plans to expand shortly into Brisbane and Perth. For further information contact ATDC toll free from anywhere in Australia.


ATDC Installs Commercial Security Grilles for North Sydney Railway Station

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed an installation of its premium grade commercial security grilles for North Sydney Railway Station.

Commercial Security Grilles – Premium Grade

Installed at the interchange entry leading from the railway station through to Greenwood Plaza Shopping Centre, ATDC’s commercial security grille was installed to structural supports provided by Simco, the project managers for this job. The 6000mm wide grille was designed to retract back to a compact storage area of only 15% of the total area secured so as to be almost invisible during trading hours. Having recessed floor track, the commercial security grille is no impediment to the free flow of foot traffic at the railway interchange which is extremely heavy particularly during peak times. A removable floor cover plate is in place during opening hours to create a seamless effect to the finished floor. The works for Simco were all carried out by ATDC late at night so as not to interfere with the running of Sydney’s trains. For other instances of ATDC’s commercial security grilles promoting the free flow of pedestrian foot traffic at public thoroughfares see an article about our security gates being supplied for the Townsville Rail.

Unique Locking Arrangement – BCA Compliance

A unique magnetic locking arrangement was installed on the commercial security grille on this project in order to comply with the BCA (Building Code of Australia). The magnetic lock is generally wired to the building’s fire indicator panel and is designed to automatically unlock and release in the event of fire. In effect this arrangement creates a keyless egress system for emergency exit. ATDC does have other alternative locking methods for complying with the BCA, the type used depending on the nature and suitability of the particular project at hand. For ATDC’s locking compliance with the BCA refer to our information on our Security Shutters S06.

Securing Railway Stations Across Australia

ATDC’s commercial security grilles are particularly appealing to Australian railway stations due to their heritage design and for this reason they are used quite frequently for securing railway stations across the country. Queensland Rail, WA Rail, Vic Rail, Metrail and Sydney’s Light Rail and NSW State Rail are all frequent customers. The heritage design has its origin in the scissor doors that appeared in many elevators and lifts in years gone by. For further information on the widespread use of ATDC’s commercial security grilles to railway stations see an article on our security door project for Sydney Light Rail.

Our Security Grilles – Enquire Today

ATDC’s commercial security grilles are now sold in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and across all regional centres across the country including Newcasle, Geelong, Wollongong and Townsville. These commercial security grilles are also exported widely to Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and throughout South East Asia and the Asia Pacific and Pacific Islands.

Concertina Security Doors

Specified by well-known Melbourne based retail and commercial design specialist ACRD, ATDC’s S07-2 side- by- side stacking concertina security doors are being widely used as they are the most space efficient commercial door closures currently available on the market. The doors are configured on a parallel set of tandem top tracks; these concertina security doors fold back to only 8 per cent of the total opening width being secured. They are complemented by a series of secure full height up/down locking mechanisms to alleviate the need for any floor tracks, creating a seamless effect with a completely clear and open shopfront without any obstructions during trading hours. Where required, a curved or S-bend configuration with 90 degree turns over a 600mm radius can be achieved for securing curved apertures. More information here on the S07-2 concertina security doors.

These concertina security doors have added advantages for designers and retailers including the fact they require no headroom at all and can span unlimited widths.

ATDC Installs Security Door at Woolworths in Brisbane

The Australian Trellis Door Company™ (ATDC™) has installed its formidable security door at Woolworths Supermarket at Hope Island near Brisbane.

Sliding Security Doors

The Australian Standard compliant security door was installed at the main entry to the store on behalf of Aspect Design, the project manager and builder on the project in an effort to deter break and enters to the premises. (For more information on ATDC’s compliance with the Australian Standards for sliding security doors please see an article on our website here)

Security Door Features

The S06 security door was selected for numerous reasons including the fact that when not in use during trading hours it retracts sideways and folds completely out of the way so as not to impede customer access and further so as not to obstruct visibility of merchandise. At night however, when the store is closed, the security door provides an excellent deterrent. This Australian Standard compliant security door has numerous security features including a 5 pin cylinder, triple contact tamper resistant lock with anti-jemmy protection, and a full heavy duty frame. As such the S06 security door provides Woolworths and many other businesses in Brisbane with the level of protection that many owners demand and many insurance companies now require from their clients. (For more information on the S06 security door please visit our website here)

The S06 security is galvanized and powdercoated in either a satin black or pearl white powdercoated finish as a standard-other powdercoated finishes are available on request to blend in with almost any corporate colour environment.

Heavy Duty Security Door Installed for BP Melbourne

The Australian Trellis Door Company™ (ATDC™) has recently installed its S06™ heavy duty security door at the BP Petrol Station at Lysterfield in Melbourne.

Heavy Duty Security Door for BP Melbourne

Luke Plancke, the retail manager, supplier relations at Endeavour Petroleum, said the group had ordered the security door following two previous break-ins over a 6 week period which caused the Melbourne company major financial losses as well as serious disruption to their business trade. In each case the intruders entered the premises by breaking in through the front door, in one case by reversing their vehicle through the doorway. This follows a spate of similar break-ins to commercial premises in the Melbourne metropolitan area and, as a direct consequence, a major increase in demand for ATDC’s security door for Melbourne based businesses.
Luke Plancke was suitably impressed with the service he received from ATDC. He said ‘the service was amazing, I could not be happier and I’m amazed at how quickly the door was made and installed. I’m very happy with the product’

High Level of Security

The S06™ security door was chosen by BP for many reasons including the fact that it folds completely out of sight during trading hours but at night provides the high level of security provided by Australian Standards rated security door products. With its tamper resistant triple contact locking mechanism and heavy duty full frame, this security door now provides BP and many other businesses in Melbourne with the level of protection many insurance companies are now insisting on.

Prestigious New Installation for DFS Group

The Australian Trellis Door Company™ (ATDC™) has recently completed a prestigious installation for DFS Group’s new duty free store at Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Working closely with leading international luxury retailer DFS GROUP and specifying architect PMDL out of Hong Kong, ATDC supplied its cutting edge retractable security gates to secure the luxury store’s valuable merchandise.

The Finished Product

ATDC also collaborated on this project with Structural Engineer, Structon Group and fitout specialist, Fixx Systems (both companies based in Vietnam) to produce a finished product that surpassed the customer’s expectations.

PMDL’s Hong Kong office approached ATDC primarily because ATDC possesses the most space efficient retail closure on the market today, namely its S07-2™ side -by -side parallel top tracking retractable security gate configuration. The very wide and curved shopfront opening (nearly 45 metres) required a space efficient solution which complemented the customer’s high profile luxury image. ATDC provided its S08™ curved retractable security gate in a dual S07-2™ top track configuration and thereby achieved a minimal storage requirement for the doors during trading hours.

Security Solutions

Numerous kiosk locations within the store itself also required security however provided a challenge since these particular locations have extremely high ceilings and no top structural bulkheads-in these locations ATDC supplied its S04-1™ trackless, mobile, retractable security gates which provide DFS Group with the required lock up of their valuable merchandise.

Contact Us about Our Security Doors

ATDC supplies its quality retractable security gates to Hong Kong, Singapore and throughout South East Asia and the Asia Pacific.

Unique Security Doors for Sydney Light Rail Project

Currently under construction is a new light rail network for Sydney which will feature a 12 km route extending from Circular Quay along George Street to Central Station and further to other eastern Sydney suburbs such as Moore Park, Kensington and Randwick. Due for completion in 2018 the Sydney Light Rail also incorporates the inner West Light Rail through Dulwich Hill.

Our Location

The Australian Trellis Door Company™ (ATDC™) with its head office in Sydney’s Condell Park is well placed geographically to contribute to this uniquely Sydney project with its specialised security doors.

ATDC’s Security Doors around Sydney

ATDC’s heritage style security doors have already been installed over the past few years at many State Rail and Sydney Trains sites including St James Station in Sydney’s Elizabeth Street, Museum Station, Wynyard Station, Wynyard Walk-Railway House, Westfield Railway Interchange Parramatta, and more recently Central Station including Sydney’s Light Rail platform entry. ATDC is currently working on a project for Sydney trains at North Sydney station.

These security doors fold out of the way and out of sight when not in use however when locked they help preserve the heritage appeal of these typically old style railway station facades.

Multi-point Locking Options

With multi point locking options and full frames for extra strength these steel constructed, precision engineered security doors are an effective deterrent against after hour entry. The ATDC security door range includes the only two security doors of its type that comply with the Australian Standards for sliding security doors having successfully passed rigorous testing at a NATA approved testing facility in Sydney.

In addition to Sydney Rail installs, ATDC’s security doors have been installed at railway stations across the country including sites for Queensland Rail ( for example Townsville Railway Station and Brisbane International Airport’s Skytrain),WA Rail and VicRail. More recently, ATDC has supplied its doors at numerous tram stations for Metrail in the Melbourne metropolitan area. These doors are now also sold in Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart, Newcastle, Geelong and all regional towns across Australia.

Installation of Retractable Barriers at CSL Behring Melbourne

ATDC has recently completed a large installation of its retractable barriers at CSL Behring’s Melbourne head office. (

CSL Behring ( is a global leader in the plasma protein therapeutics industry and is the chosen national plasma fractionator for Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.

CSL utilized ATDC’s retractable barrier at each end of the production lines in their Melbourne production facility to assist management in maintaining a clean, sterile area and so assisting their strict quality control and OH+S requirements.

Retractable Barrier Systems

ATDC’s trackless retractable barrier was CSL’s preferred product to resolve their OH+S and quality control issues-the retractable barrier is formidable and strong given its rigid steel construction and its multi-point locking mechanisms provide a secure lockup solution whilst its trackless construction mean its economical and flexible. Furthermore the retractable barriers fold back to a mere 12% of the opening width they are securing making them extremely space efficient. Read more information about our retractable barriers here.

ATDC’s retractable barriers are also available in a double diamond mesh configuration meaning the cross linkages are tightly woven together resulting in a 65 mm pitch between the steel sections making it virtually impossible for a person to put their hand through the door to reach objects on the other side of the barrier. Read more information about Double Diamond Security Gates here.

With ATDC’s retractable barrier having keyless egress locking in cases requiring emergency exit, BCA compliance can be achieved in most applications.

Additional Security Applications

Additional applications for ATDC’s retractable barrier include providing access control, securing elevated work platforms, assisting in loss prevention and inventory control and securing warehouse loading areas and despatch docks.

Our Locations

The retractable barriers are now available for sale in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Darwin, Townsville, Newcastle and all regional towns and centres across Australia.
