The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has supplied and installed
their expandable barricades at various locations across central and southern
Located on the North West fringe of Sydney’s central business district, Barrangaroo
is being redeveloped by the Barrangaroo Delivery Authority (on behalf of the
NSW State Government) into a world class precinct comprising of recreational
spaces and parklands, high quality commercial, office and retail spaces, several
new apartment buildings, a hotel and a casino. Spanning an area of 22 hectares
along the Sydney Harbour, the precinct, on completion in 2024, will also have
its own metro station.
ATDC’s expandable barricades have been installed at various commercial
and retail facilities in the precinct. For the retail tenancies, a robust
and safe trackless barrier was required that didn’t need structural support, could
be fully mobile when unlocked during trading hours, and was able to traverse
multi-angled shopfront configurations over a wide span.
ATDC’s expandable barricades have satisfied all of the criteria and have
also been tested under the current OH&S legislation for safety with a
comprehensive independent WHS audit.
For the new Barrangaroo Ferry Terminal, ATDC supplied their expandable barricades in a double
diamond configuration, which have been tested by a NATA testing authority under
the temporary fencing and hoarding provisions of Australian Standards AS
4687-2007 for dynamic impact, simulated climbing, and foothold aperture test.
ATDC’s barricades were specified by Cox Architects for this installation
with Gartner Rose (now owned by Lend Lease) serving as the project manager.
The expandable barricades supplied to the retail tenancies were
installed at a standard height of 2020mm, while the ferry terminal barricades were installed at 2400mm high with a maximum available
height of 2520mm.
All of the expandable barricades installed at the two Barrangaroo projects
are fabricated from steel and run on a series of heavy duty 75mm bottom rubber
non marking castors. Floor mounted and wall mounted locking options are
ATDC also supplies aluminium expandable barricades with their anti-corrosive qualities making them
more suitable for installation in marine environments such as coastal, beachside
or riverfront locations. A natural anodised finish enhances their
anti-corrosion characteristics and additional protection comes from the UV-resistant
