Concertina Shutter Doors for Shop Fronts


The Australian Trellis Door Company’s (ATDC) concertina shutters are gaining significant market penetration both in the commercial and retail markets.

These quality,precision engineered  concertina shutters are constructed from extruded aluminium panel sections  with interlocking heavy duty hinges and roller bearings which allow the curtain to easily slide and retract whilst suspended from a heavy duty  aluminium top track.Available in either a wide body 300mm panel or slimline section 150mm,the shutters are user friendly and look the goods with their smooth lines and sleek aesthetic design.They offer the operator seamless lock up options with intermediate up/down locking mechanisms and without the need for any floor track with its attendant trip hazard disadvantages.With maximum height at approximately 4500mm,curtain infill options include either 3mm polycarbonate,perforated mesh or solid aluminium depending on the application.Curved configurations are quite a regular application including special radius turns and S-bends.
