The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) recently installed their folding doors at the Ferrari Showroom in Star City Casino, Sydney.
The design brief sought a solution that would protect the high value merchandise while matching the stylish vehicles in appearance to complement the prestigious Ferrari brand image in an affordable way.
The closure needed to span a multi-curved 44-metre wide retail frontage to a height of 3 metres, and also fold back to occupy a minimum amount of storage space when unlocked and opened during trading hours. The folding doors were also required to maximise visual display of the Ferraris when the showroom was closed for business.
ATDC’s FC1 wide panel folding door matched and even exceeded these requirements. The 300mm wide panel door was installed with a heavy duty top track, heavy duty industrial grade top roller wheels and interlocking heavy duty hinges, providing a low friction, easy operation despite the expansive size of the door. Utilising multiple intermediate keyed alike up/down locking mechanisms, a seamless lock-up was achieved without any cumbersome removable mullions or floor tracking required.
The folding doors at the Ferrari showroom have a professional natural anodised finish, provided as standard for these doors. However, ATDC also offers a full range of powder-coated options on request from the Dulux range of powder-coated finishes.
ATDC’s folding doors are now sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra as well as all regional Australian towns such as Newcastle, Geelong, Townsville, Darwin and Hobart. The doors are also exported to South East Asia, the Asia Pacific, the Pacific Islands and the UAE.
