The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) offers a range of steel trellis doors and barriers designed for use in industrial and construction environments to resolve various Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) issues.
S04-1 mobile trackless trellis barrier systems are a range of protective barriers designed for dangerous machinery in manufacturing environments.
These protective barriers can be used to restrict access to certain dangerous areas of the factory while machines are in operation, which could potentially cause injury to people.
These barrier systems operate on trolleys and can be wheeled away when not in use and stored out of sight.
The barriers are very economical in application and provide enormous flexibility allowing the closing off of awkward openings, which may be typically very difficult to secure.
Protective barriers can also be used to secure loading docks and warehouse roller door entries, preventing the public from wandering into factories and warehouses during trading hours.
The S04-1 trellis barriers can also assist in providing safe environments at construction sites.
Bovis Lend Lease recently used these trellis barriers at their shopping centre extension in Charlestown, NSW.
Bovis was not allowed to do construction work at night due to noise considerations, so they used these barriers to cordon off mall areas under construction from the trading areas enabling construction work to continue during normal centre operating hours.
The barrier systems are secured on each end by a slam-lock facility, which locks the barrier to a side fixing point.
If no suitable side-fixing point exists then one can use ATDC’s removable lockable post.
The removable lockable post locks down onto a laser cut stainless steel plate positioned on the floor creating the required fixing point.
