The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently installed its high grade S06 security gates to secure the shopfront at Repco Penrith.

Repco is one of Australasia’s 25 most recognized brands.With in excess of 400 stores in Australia and New Zealand and employing more than 2000 staff,Repco is Australia’s largest reseller and supplier in the automotive parts and accessories aftermarket.


Working closely with Repco’s specifying architects as well as shopfitter Storebuild Pty Ltd out of Melbourne,ATDC were tasked with the challenge of designing a security gate solution that was compact and space efficient when unlocked and opened for trade .This security gate had to fold back and occupy a side storage area which was only 6% of the opening span of the shopfront.


ATDC’s design engineers were able to offer up their innovative side- by- side parallel top track configuration  which literally halved the normal stacking sizes of their security gates.Further, by designing the doors in a bi-parting double leaf arrangement ATDC was able to neatly resolve the limited storage space challenge.By utilizing a series of intermediate up/down locking mechanisms which alleviated the need for any floor tracks,a seamless lock up solution was provided.  ( )


In addition ATDC are also able to offer up their unique side-by-side configuration for curved and angled  shopfronts as well straight-line applications and this provides customers with further innovative design options when considering maximizing visual display of merchandise for their retail stores.The maximum curve/angle that is operationally achievable  is a 90 degree turn  through a 600mm radius curve.  (See article at  )


ATDC’s compact security gates are available in standard black satin and white pearl powdercoated finishes although any finish is available from the standard Australian Dulux powdercoat range.


ATDC’s security gates are now available for sale in Sydney,Melbourne,Brisbane,Adelaide,Perth and Canberra as well as all regional towns across the country including Newcastle,Geelong,Townville,Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast .In addition the gates are exported throughout South East Asia,The Pacific Islands and The UAE.
