Current legislation bans smoking indoors across NSW’s 3,700 licensed venues while only allowing smoking in areas which are 25 per cent open to the elements. Venue operators have been putting significant effort and expense into modifying their gaming areas to accommodate the smokers.
A relatively inexpensive product becoming increasingly popular to assist venue operators to comply with legislation, is the S06 Trellis Door, available from The Australian Trellis Door Company .
The open-style nature of these expanding steel trellises allows smoke to blow away through the doors and provide excellent security for the clubs’ expensive gaming machines out of operating hours. Furthermore, when desired, these trellis doors can be opened to the sides and tucked away completely from site.
The S06 Trellis Doors are made from heavy-duty steel and are secured on each end by auto slam-locking posts. They are top-hung and come with a number of bottom track options including fixed, recessed, hinged or removable. The doors can operate in a straight line or may be curved through a radius of 600 degrees (S08 Curved Trellis). For storage purposes, these doors are folded away to the side of the opening and may be recessed into a cupboard.
