Heavy duty trellis doors from The Australian Trellis Door Company are being installed at major shopping centres to raise security levels following a spate of robberies and ram raids across Australia.
Shopping centre owners are increasingly facing legal claims from tenants whose outlets have been targeted after a break-in at the centre, while customers are also making legal claims for compensation related to security and safety issues.
The NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research figures for the five years to September 2012 show that retail store theft rose by 2.3%, including break-ins and ram raids.
Australia’s leading security doors company, The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) is seeing a strong increase in demand from large as well as small shopping centre owners who are keen to secure their premises and avoid legal action from their tenants or customers following break-ins.
ATDC’s clients include shopping centre owners Westfield, AMP, Lend Lease, Stocklands, Centro, Colonial Mutual, and Mirvac.
According to Principal of ATDC, Mr Jonathan Kaplan, it is important that owners protect the centres’ perimeters correctly to both protect their multi-million dollar investments and those of their tenants.
Key features of ATDC’s new SO6 heavy duty trellis doors:
- Concertina style door
- Expands across large entrances of up to 15 metres wide and 4 metres in height
- Custom designed to secure any door, window or passage opening
- Allows easy operation, security, build quality and flow of air and light
- Protects staff at all times and prevents break-ins 24 hours a day
The mobile trackless barriers operate on a series of steel trolleys and rubber castors, making them ideal for use as temporary enclosures.
An Australian family owned business, ATDC currently supplies a diverse range of precision engineered expanding trellis security doors in steel and aluminium, which are suitable for securing most residential, commercial and industrial applications.
