Westfield Fountain Gate, Australia’s second largest shopping centre is
relying on multiple extendable gates from The Australian Trellis Door Company
(ATDC) to control access as well as secure the tenancies in the building.
Multiple extendable gates from ATDC were recently installed throughout
Westfield Fountain Gate shopping centre situated at Narre Warren in Melbourne’s
South-eastern suburbs. Project managed by Daicor Commercial Property Services from
Malvern, Victoria, the job involved the installation of the gates as an access
control device as well as a loss prevention tool between multiple tenancies, across
the food court and also in front of points of entry and exit to various travellators
in the centre.
Several Westfield sites across Australia as well as many other leading
shopping centre groups including those managed and/or owned by LendLease, Stocklands,
AMP, Colonial First State, QIC and Vicinity Centres have already installed these
ATDC is now Australia’s premier supplier of premium grade extendable
gates for a number of important reasons:
Many of ATDC’s gates are OH&S tested for safety for their operation
as well as for the public. A fully documented WHS Risk Assessment can be accessed
on ATDC’s website.
Compliance with Australian
Many of ATDC’s gates have been tested for compliance with Australian
Standards for Dynamic Impact, Simulated Climbing and Foothold Aperture, which
is of particular significance in many government applications
with high traffic areas.
Keyless exit under BCA
Where required, ATDC’s gates can be constructed to comply with the
emergency egress provisions of the Building Code of Australia (BCA) for keyless exit.
ATDC uses only quality grade components in the fabrication of their
extendable gates. Rivets are used in a non-pivoting function to promote
longevity and the bottom castors are heavy duty non-marking thermoplastic
compound wheels. All products come with a 12-month warranty against defective
parts and materials as per ATDC’s standard warranty.
ATDC’s extendable gates are now sold in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide,
Perth and Canberra as well as in all regional towns including Newcastle, Geelong,
