Commercial Expanding Doors comply with Security Standards for Sliding Security Doors

ATDC’s S06 Heavy duty steel commercial Expanding Security Doors is the only door of its type that can comply with Australian Security Standards AS 5039 namely the pull test, dynamic impact test and Anti-Jemmy test.

With its full surround frame, triple contact locking mechanism and heavy duty mesh infill,this door provides that extra level of deterrent that is sought after where security of one’s business premises is a priority. They fold sideways completely out of sight when unlocked and opened during trading hours so as not to block the visual display of any merchandise.

Recently installed for Trek Bicycles at their new storefront in Claremont near Perth in Western Australia, this door also has an emergency egress facility for keyless exit where required.

Copper Wash finish adds to heritage appeal of Commercial Folding Doors

ATDC’s commercial folding doors are frequently specified and  installed on heritage buildings in Australia.  They  are generally regarded as enhancing  the aesthetic appeal that preserves the older style look of these older, historical structures.

Some recent doors supplied by ATDC to the new Edmonson Park shopping centre in southwestern Sydney had a copper wash finish applied to give them an older, antique appearance.  This finish is applied through a basic rag roll process which is very effective in achieving this copper wash appearance.  The project managers for this job were TD Shopfitting who contracted out the application of the special finish described in this article.

Commercial Folding Closures now with Emergency Egress Facility

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) recently installed its premium grade 300mm panel folding closure door to secure the storefront of Glue Store at Charlestown. The commercial folding closure was fitted with an emergency egress facility.

Glue Store is a national Australian retailer selling well known clothing, footwear and accessories from well known international and local brands such as Stussy, Nike, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Champion and many more.

Powdercoated black and installed with a heavy duty extruded top track attached directly to structural supports above, the door included an emergency breakout door for egress  compliance with the BCA. This was required as the closure had been installed in an entry designated for emergency exit. The breakout door operates with a lever handle from the inside of the premises which allows for quick keyless egress. The breakout door hinges outwards on activation of the lever handle.
