Concertina shutters from The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) are making a significant impact in the market with several architectural specifiers selecting the product for different commercial and retail projects across the country.

Constructed from extruded aluminium panel sections, the precision engineered concertina shutters feature interlocking heavy duty hinges and roller bearings that allow the curtain to easily slide and retract while suspended from a heavy duty aluminium top track.

Key features of ATDC’s concertina shutters include choice of wide body 300mm panels or slimline 150mm sections; smooth lines and sleek aesthetic design; seamless lock up options with intermediate up/down locking mechanisms; no floor track with attendant trip hazard disadvantages; maximum height approximately 4500mm; 3mm polycarbonate, perforated mesh or solid aluminium as curtain infill options; and curved configurations possible such as special radius turns and S-bends.

Backed by ATDC’s 35-year successful trading record of outstanding service, these concertina shutters are increasingly being specified by customers on prestigious projects. For instance, ATDC is currently working on three different university projects across Australia, namely Australian National University’s Hancock Library in Canberra (specified by The Mill Design Co), Deakin University in Burwood, Melbourne (specified by Ian McEwan Designs) and the University of Geelong (specified by Baade Harbour Australia Architects).

ATDC has also deeply penetrated the retail industry with installations completed for many national and international brands including Flight Centre, Napoleon Perdis, Ferrari, Gloria Jeans Coffee, DFS Duty Free (owned by LVMH), Specsavers and more. The Specsavers installation was managed by Australasian Retail Projects out of Queensland. The door was powder-coated in a special bright silver metallic finish to meet the requirements of the Moonee Pounds Central Shopping Centre.

ATDC’s concertina shutters are sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra as well as in all regional centres across the country including Hobart, Darwin, Townsville, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Geelong and Newcastle. The shutters are also exported throughout South East Asia, the Asia Pacific, the Pacific Islands and the UAE.
