EXTENDABLE SAFETY BARRIERS AT GREEN SQUARE LIBRARY ARE BCA EGRESS COMPLIANT

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 https://www.trellisdoors.com.au/atdc-installs-safety-barriers-at-new-ferry-terminal-in-sydney

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 https://www.trellisdoors.com.au/product/commercial-security/barriers-and-cafe-barriers/safety-barriers-s04-1dd
