The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) is pleased to announce its involvement in the new Delacombe Town Centre,a $60 million shopping centre development at the corner of Glenelg Highway and Cherry Flat Rd,Ballarat,only an hour and a half drive to the centre of Melbourne.Anchor tenants at the site include Woolworths and Kmart as well as 35 smaller specialty stores,as well as a  500 seat,6 screen Showbiz cinema and medical centre.


ATDC has supplied its premium grade concertina doors to multiple tenancies at the centre including Direct Chemist Outlet,Tatts Lotto,Just Cuts,Toyland,Smart Dollar,Che Modea and more.


As the nominated door contractor for the centre,ATDC worked closely with developer and construction company H.Troon in ensuring timeous delivery under very tight deadlines of its concertina doors.


The concertina doors supplied by ATDC were primarily its 300mm wide panel FC1 model door which  is fabricated from heavy duty extruded aluminium sections with interlocking hinges  suspended from a rigid top support track by industrial grade hangars  allowing the curtain to fold in a low friction action making it easy to operate and giving it a longer lasting lifespan. For further information on  ATDC’s concertina doors view our product information page.Note that ATDC also manufactures a slimline 150mm wide concertina door panel where required.For further information on ATDC’s slimline panel door see article on the launch of the new Slimline Panel Accordion Door in Australia.



These concertina doors were all supplied with  secure seamless up/down locking mechanisms, thus providing all tenants at Delacombe Town Centre  with a speedy, efficient, user friendly lock up option without the need for cumbersome removable mullions. Numerous tenancies also had emergency egress locking options as specified under  BCA, which provide an emergency breakout door solution where required.

All ATDC’s concertina doors at Delacombe Town Centre were supplied with a polycarbonate infill and some tenancies were supplied with doors completed in a natural anodised finish whilst others had a powdercoated finish applied.It should be noted that other infill options are available including perforated mesh or solid aluminium.

ATDC’s concertina doors are customized to each particular project –the span is unlimited and the maximum height is 4500mm-curved apertures are not a problem as the doors can accommodate either a 90 degree curve over a 600mm radius (for the wide panel FC1) or even over a 405mm radius for the slimline panel option. S-bend configurations are also easily achieved where required as well as special curved radii.


ATDC’s concertina doors are now sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, and Canberra as well as across all regional towns across the country including Newcastle, Geelong, Townsville, Darwin and Hobart.
