The Australian Trellis Door Company presents a range of steel trellis doors as an economic solution for securing shopfronts in shopping centres and on street-frontage.
High strength, through-visibility, competitive pricing point and low maintenance are some of the advantages of steel trellis doors, making them increasingly popular in shopping centres as the main, and sometimes only storefront door without glass.
Steel trellis doors offer greater economy over traditional forms of horizontal folding closures and vertical shutters, making them the door of choice for closing off stores selling electronic equipment, white goods and other high value items.
A new egress-handle and protective plate solution from The Australian Trellis Door Company enable easy keyless opening and exit from the inside of the store in an emergency situation.
The plate is constructed from high-strength thick Lexan sheeting, which is cut, bent and slotted to enable it to slide with the concertina action of the trellis door. A layer of 3M black vinyl film is applied to the Lexan to block out external visibility of the handle position (Lockwood lock and handle) situated on the inside of the plate/door.
Anyone trapped on the inside of the store needs to merely push down the lever handle and slide the trellis door sideways to come out of the store.
For entry to the store, an ATDC three-point Alumax lock is fitted to the centre of the security doors for easy key-turn access. This lock may be keyed-alike to other restrictive locking systems.
