The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) recently installed over 120 lineal metres of trackless barriers at a newly redeveloped shopping centre on the NSW Central Coast.
Eight kiosks situated in the middle of the Gosford Town Centre shopping complex needed to be secured. Being kiosks, there was no super structure, fixing points or supports. The kiosks consisted of several angled lines and almost 120 lineal metres of space with no place to store the doors.
S04-1 mobile trackless trellis barrier systems were selected for installation at the shopping centre. The versatile S04-1 trackless barriers easily overcame installation difficulties with their self-support design that eliminated any need for fixing points.
Additionally, the trackless trellis barriers could span an unlimited width at any angle without need for any mullions. Storage space was not an issue as the systems could be stored off the premises.
The Australian Trellis Door Company carried out a similar barrier installation at Centro Galleria in Perth, WA. Operations Manager Dan Boyle comments that the trellis system has proven to be a very effective deterrent in addition to maintaining the ambience of the centre.
ATDC has also developed a removable lockable post, which can be used in conjunction with the trackless barrier to offer a higher level of security.
The lockable posts can be used for instance, to secure an area in a shopping centre between two glass shopfronts. The removable lockable posts allow lock up without attaching onto the glass shopfront by locking down onto a laser cut stainless steel plate positioned on the floor.
ATDC has also designed a manual handling trolley, which allows a large span trackless barrier to be operated by a single person.
