A safety barrier has been installed by The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) in American Airlines’ departure gate area at Sydney International Airport. The safety fencing restricts access and pedestrian traffic to the departure gate during specific hours of the day.

ATDC’s safety fencing has been installed in multiple locations at Sydney’s international as well as domestic airports for various applications including screening off shopfronts, restricting access to the duty-free merchandise area during closing hours, screening off work-safe areas for OH&S purposes, securing Customs areas of the airport, access control to areas for screening of carry-on luggage and other security locations, and securing entry to bonded warehouses for freight.

Being mobile, trackless and freestanding, ATDC’s safety fencing does not require headroom or overhead support while its modular design allows unlimited width.

Key features of ATDC’s safety fencing include toughened steel sections; wall mounted and floor mounted locking options; compact, safe and easy to operate, running on a series of heavy duty 75mm rubber non-marking thermoplastic bottom wheels; and standard height modules of 2020mm or 2520mm with custom heights tailored to the needs of any application or project.

ATDC also offers an aluminium version of the safety fencing for use in highly corrosive marine environments. The aluminium safety fencing is available in clear anodised and UV-resistant Dulux powder-coated finishes to enhance anti-corrosion performance.

ATDC’s safety fencing is OH&S tested and also independently tested in an approved NATA laboratory to meet Australian Standard AS 4687-2007 Temporary Fencing and Hoardings. These have also been successfully tested for emergency egress under the BCA.

ATDC’s safety fencing systems are sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra as well as in all regional towns across the country including Newcastle, Wollongong, Geelong, Townsville, Hobart and Cairns. ATDC’s portable barriers are also being successfully exported.
