Portable Safety Barriers at The Australian National Maritime Museum

Portable Safety Barriers at The Australian National Maritime Museum

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed an installation of its premium grade aluminium portable safety barriers at Sydney’s Darling Harbour for The Australian National Maritime Museum.

Our Portable Safety Barriers

The Maritime Museum tasked ATDC with replacing its existing fixed barrier systems which were in  poor condition having badly corroded, faded and tarnished  due to their  proximity to the marine environment at Sydney Harbour. Further, the Museum wanted to remove their fixed barrier systems which were previously in place since they were a permanent eyesore and were not welcoming to the public, the requirements for their new perimeter fencing were that when unlocked the barriers were to be tucked away and stored completely out of site and further, that they would be able to withstand the highly corrosive surrounding marine environment.

ATDC installed its all-aluminium portable safety barriers to achieve these dual objectives of the Maritime Museum. ATDC’s  barriers are manufactured   from high tensile 20mm x 1.8mm all aluminium square box sections and have solid stainless steel rivets- these portable safety barriers have an anodised finish to 25 microns, making them suitable for installation in a highly corrosive marine environment with a high saline content. Their non-marking thermoplastic rubber tread castors make them suitable for any installation on any type of finished floor. Their professional powdercoated finish has UV inhibitors so they will not fade or tarnish in sunlight where installed on the exterior of buildings. Further information is available on ATDC’s aluminium portable safety barriers, including specifications and images.

Semi-Modular Design

Completely retractable, mobile, trackless and able to span an unlimited width makes these portable safety barriers suitable for securing extremely large openings typical at high thoroughfare public access areas such as ports, airports and railway stations. Available in standard heights of 1200mm or 1800mm (or available in custom made heights as required), the span of these portable safety barriers is unlimited due to their unique semi-modular design and thereby the need for removable mullions is avoided making them very easy to operate.

Various Locking Options

Also available from ATDC is a high tensile steel product and with both wall mounted and floor mounted locking options, these portable safety barriers are compact and strong yet are very easy to operate running on a series of low friction heavy duty thermoplastic rubber non marking bottom castors. ATDC’s steel portable safety barriers are safety tested for OH+S compliance and have also been successfully tested for compliance to Australian Standards AS 4687-2007 for Temporary Fencing and Hoardings. Further information is available on ATDC’s steel portable safety barriers including specifications and images.
