The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) supplies a diverse range of precision engineered expanding trellis security doors that are helping several businesses in the hospitality industry protect their premises and reduce the risk of unauthorised entry and theft.
Security has become a major concern for shop and business owners, especially with the increasing number of ram raids and robberies in pubs and hotels. ATDC’s expanding trellis security barriers, available in both steel and aluminium are being successfully utilised by companies such as the Solotel Group for its pubs, the Kings Cross Hotel, The Sheaf and The Regent Hotel, as well as Dan Murphy’s, The Mariott, Accor and Ibis in addition to the BWS and LiquorLAND chains of liquor outlets.
BWS, the Australian retail chain of liquor stores owned by Woolworths Limited is a regular user of ATDC’s trellis security doors and has installed them at over 30 of their BWS outlets across the country.
According to Ms Karen Price, Project Manager for NSW/ACT for the BWS Group, the ATDC trellis doors are part of their specifications to builders when renovating existing stores or acquiring new stores. She explains that BWS stores, being a liquor outlet are a common target for break-ins and thefts but the trellis doors work as a great deterrent for thieves, while protecting their stock and providing peace of mind and safety for staff.
ATDC also offers the popular mobile trackless trellis barriers that operate on trolleys and can be wheeled away and stored out of sight during the day. An economical security solution, these mobile barriers provide enormous flexibility, allowing proprietors to close off awkward openings that are typically very difficult to secure.
Sydney’s 24-hour pub Scruffy Murphy’s uses these barriers as a preventative measure in their pub, which has three bars. Since some are closed at certain times of the day, these security doors prevent customers from straying into the closed bars and helping themselves to drinks while also taking away the temptation for staff to steal stock.
Scruffy Murphy’s Ms Cecilia Molloy recommends these mobile barriers to all similar businesses as a theft prevention strategy, where sections of the business housing stock or valuables might be closed off at certain times during trading hours.
