The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) specialises in safety barriers which are ideal for restricting access to heavy plant and machinery and so preventing injury from potentially dangerous moving parts making them a vital organisational health and safety tool in the industrial sector.
Examples of dangerous machinery to guard against
personal injury include robotic arms, coiling machines and conveyor belt

Fabricated from robust high tensile steel components, these
expandable safety barriers also have further safety applications in
factories, warehouses and other workplace locations in preventing accidental
slips and falls and in restricting access to sensitive areas such as those
containing hazardous substances and high value inventory.
These safety barriers are trackless and are
manufactured to operate on heavy duty thermoplastic bottom castors making
them portable, easy to manoeuvre and mobile and able to be set up in
multiple locations in the same premises as the need for employee safety and
access control arises. In addition they are modular and as such can be
manufactured to unlimited spans securing the widest possible openings.
Numerous wall mounted and/or floor mounted
locking solutions exist as well as the added feature of lockable bottom wheels
all of which enhance the level of security offered by these safety
barriers, these options can be tailored to the particular requirements of each
individual workplace. Digital card readers allow for 24 hour access for
selective staff and employees.
These expandable safety barriers can also be used to
secure elevated work platforms as well as lift shafts and open pits.
Smart innovations from ATDC’s design engineers include
the double diamond mesh version of the safety barrier making it virtually
impossible for a human adult’s hand to reach through the barrier providing that
extra degree of safety for staff members.
Recent independent testing of these expandable safety
barriers at a NATA approved facility confirms that, in certain circumstances,
they pass most of the requirements of the relevant Australian
Standard 4687-2007 for Temporary Fencing and Hoarding. In addition ATDC has
Australia’s first independently audited written WHS Risk Assessment for its
barrier products another first from ATDC’s innovative design engineers.
The safety barriers are now sold in
Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and all regional centres
across Australia. For more information contact ATDC on 1800 657 435 or visit www.trellisdoors.com.au
