Commercial roller shutters from The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) were installed at the Cardiff RSL in Hunter Valley, NSW to secure the outdoor gaming areas.

Specified by Newcastle firm EJE Architecture and project managed by JMC Building, ATDC’s electrically operated widespan RS6 commercial roller shutters were fitted to several bar counters and poker machine room areas at the club. The roller shutters were required to weatherproof the outdoor gaming rooms, protect the poker machines as well as assist the club in complying with the legislation that prohibited smoking indoors in licensed premises.

ATDC’s heavy duty commercial roller shutters allowed Cardiff RSL to move their poker machines into the covered outdoor areas, meeting the compliance requirement for smoking while also securing these areas during closing times against both intruders and the outdoor elements.

Key features of ATDC’s RS6 widespan commercial roller shutters include 77mm aluminium slat profile with ability to span up to 6000mm in one section without needing multiple roller shutters; solid or slotted section options for the slat profile; sleek, unobtrusive and strong shutters that roll up completely out of the way when not in use; and optional top pelmet boxes for installations where the drum rolls are fixed below ceiling height.

The roller shutters in the Cardiff RSL installation are electrically operated using keyswitch mechanisms, with a group control mechanism enabling the shutters to operate either individually or as a series operating simultaneously. A backup battery ensures continued operation in the event of a power failure at the club.

ATDC’s commercial roller shutters are suitable for securing shopfronts, shopping centres, warehouses, banks, showrooms, hotels, universities, schools, carparks and other commercial and government buildings.

ATDC’s commercial roller shutters are manufactured from roll formed aluminium profiles as well as heavy duty extruded sections based on the application. Being non-corrosive, the shutters are extremely low maintenance. All of ATDC’s rolling products and overhead doors carry a full and comprehensive warranty.

ATDC’s roller shutters are now sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Darwin, Cairns and across all regional towns in Australia including Newcastle, Geelong, Wollongong and Townsville. ATDC offers a nationwide service, covering everything from project design to installation through all phases of the construction process.
