The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently installed multiple extendable gates throughout Westfield Fountain Gate.This is  Australia’s second largest shopping centre and is  situated  at Narre Warren in Melbourne’s Southeastern suburbs.

The project manager  for this installation was Daicor Commercial Property Services Pty Ltd out of  Malvern,Victoria.

The job description  included installing the gates as an access control device and also as a loss prevention tool  between multiple tenancies as well as  across the food court and  also in front of points of entry  and exit to various travelators in the centre.

This typically follows a trend  at many Westfield sites across Australia as well as for many other leading shopping centre groups including those managed and /or owned by LendLease,Stocklands,AMP,Colonial  First State,QIC and Vicinity Centres.

ATDC is now Australia’s premier supplier of premium grade extendable gates for a number of important reasons:

Firstly many of the gates are OH+S tested for safety both for their  operation as well as for the public.In this regard there is a fully documented WHS Risk Assessment in place which can be found on ATDC’s website at

Secondly many  of the gates have been tested for compliance with Australian Standards for Dynamic Impact,Simulated Climbing and Foothold Aperture which is of particular significance in many government applications with high traffic areas.For further information see article at

Thirdly,where required,the gates can be constructed  to comply with the emergency egress provisions of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) for keyless exit .Further information can be found at the following article

Lastly ATDC uses only quality grade components in the fabrication of their extendable gates.Rivets are used in a non pivoting function to promote longevity and the bottom castors are heavy duty non marking thermoplastic compound wheels.All product comes with a 12 month warranty against defective parts and materials as per ATDC’s standard warranty at
