The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) is pleased to announce the  installation of its expanding barricades for Ikea’s Richmond outlet in Melbourne.


Ikea is a multi national group and  is the world’s largest furniture retailer with over 400 stores in 49 countries and has sales turnover in excess of 36 billion euros per annum.Ikea sells furniture,home accessories and kitchen appliances.It was founded in Sweden but is headquartered in the Netherlands.


The expanding barricades  installed at Ikea’s Richmond store  are mobile and trackless and have been configured in the most space efficient  way to prevent access to the store by sealing off entry via the escalators in the shopping centre. The  barricades are generally a very effective  access control measure and are often utilized in shopping centres,public and government buildings and entertainment venues for this reason.Being trackless and portable  the expanding barricades require no overhead support structure making them very easy and cost effective  to install since no permanent overhead structural bulkheads are required.

The barricades installed at Ikea Richmond are at a standard height of 2020mm.A standard height of 2520mm is also available and non – standard heights are also available at a premium. The width of these expanding barricades is unlimited due to their unique semi-modular design No matter how wide the span,ATDC always assembles the barricades in manageable sections which are easy and safe to operate –this is achieved by utilizing  intermediate locking mechanisms to separate the barrier into sections.

Fabricated from hardened precision engineered steel sections and with numerous  locking options available, these expanding barricades are formidable and secure  yet are lightweight to operate running on a series of heavy duty 75mm bottom thermoplastic rubber non marking castors. Both steel and aluminium expanding barricades  are available depending on the application with the latter more suitable for installation in a highly corrosive marine environment.
