The SO6 shopfront security door from the Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently achieved a new security rating after testing against the Australian Standards requirements.
The tests for the security rating of ATDC’s SO6 trellis security door were carried out by Azuma Design, a NATA accredited testing laboratory.
Having passed the Dynamic Impact and Anti-Jemmy tests earlier in 2013, the SO6 has now passed the last relevant test deemed applicable for trellis type door systems, namely the Pull test wherein a significant Newton Pull force is applied for specified lengthy periods of time with mechanical levers at various points on the trellis door mesh in an attempt to force it open.
The latest security rating confirms the quality of ATDC’s range of shopfront security doors as well as a vote of confidence in the integrity and skills of ATDC’s management team and engineering department. This security rating as measured by Australian Standard 5039 not only positions ATDC uniquely in the market but also gives the consumer full confidence that the SO6 security door will provide them the protection of a security barrier meeting one of the highest quality standards.
ATDC’s shopfront security doors are now being utilised to secure entertainment venues, movie houses, theatres, gaming areas, pubs, hotels and restaurants. Greater Union Cinemas, Reading Cinemas, Hoyts and Dendy Cinemas are all frequent repeat customers from the movie industry, while several hotels including Star City Casino, Radisson Hotels, Accor Hotel Group, Sydney’s Regent Hotel and Marriott Hotels have installed ATDC’s trellis security doors.
In all these instances, ATDC’s SO6 shopfront security doors have been used to provide a barrier against forcible break in and enter and also against vandalism while its SO4-1 security door has been used more as an access control system providing a crowd control barrier within foyers, walkways and entries to movie houses.
