Premium grade security doors and portable security barriers from The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) were specified for different areas on
the RMIT University campus in Melbourne.
The designers for the Lendlease project, Lyons Architects specified ATDC’s
S06 heavy duty concertina security doors as well as S04-1 DD Double Diamond
Mesh portable security barriers.
The S06 concertina security door was installed at numerous locations including
in the canteen area where it spanned a very wide 13-metre opening. The installation
was quite challenging since there was extremely restricted headroom due to
numerous overhead services and the available daylight opening height was quite
limited at 1200mm. However, the S06 concertina security door was ideal for this
application for several reasons.
Since the S06 door runs off a heavy duty extruded slimline aluminium top
track (suspended by an overhead support beam), it doesn’t require any headroom
for installation. The S06 retracts and folds sideways to occupy just a
negligible amount of storage space at only 15% of the overall span being
Using a series of intermediate up/down locking mechanisms, the client
was able to achieve seamless lock-up for the security door without the need for any bottom track to the countertop area or any
cumbersome and unwieldy removable mullions.
ATDC also supplied their S04-1 DD deluxe grade Double Diamond Mesh
portable security barriers for the university’s rubbish bin storage and bin
wash areas. The trackless product was found suitable for this application since
the existence of numerous services prevented any other type of structural door
system from being installed. Being portable and freestanding, the barrier was
an ideal solution for the client.
Key features of the S04-1 DD portable security barriers include superior
strength that can withstand considerable impact and force; ability to fold and
retract sideways in minimal storage space; floor and wall mounted locking
options offering an optimal security solution; and only 65mm pitch between the
metal cross linkages on the door, preventing anybody from gaining a foothold
and climbing over.
ATDC’s security doors are available for sale in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane,
Adelaide, Perth and Canberra and across all regional towns including Newcastle,
Geelong, Wollongong, Townsville and Hobart. These doors are also exported
throughout South East Asia, the Asia Pacific, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands
and the UAE.
