Folding closure doors from The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) were specified for the nationwide rollout of stores by Australian Geographic. A division of Co-Op, Australia’s largest university campus retailer, Australian Geographic specialises in STEM products. As part of their expansion plans, the company continues to simultaneously invest in their digital and online presence while rolling out considerable investment in brick-and-mortar outlets across the country.

A renowned retail shopfront door specialist, ATDC has been involved in several high profile store rollouts over the past decade.

Aplin Creative, a creative interior design studio based in Darlington, Sydney, specified folding closure doors and retail shopfront doors from ATDC for Australian Geographic’s national store rollout. As part of the project, ATDC has been coordinating works with different shop-fitters who have been engaged for the various new store builds across Australia to ensure timely delivery and installation.

For the Australian Geographic store rollout, ATDC’s 300mm wide panel FC1 folding closures were specified in a natural anodised finish. The folding closure door, in many cases, was specified with radius curves to accommodate angled frontages, seamless up/down locking mechanisms at both extremities of the door as well as down locking mechanisms to lock up intermediate sections of the door.

Key features of the folding closure doors also include heavy duty extruded aluminium top track, heavy duty top hangers and commercial grade top wheels to ensure easy operation and longevity, and a series of interlocking hinges for the doors to operate smoothly, and slide and stack sideways into their storage pockets.

ATDC’s folding closure doors are available for sale in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra as well as in all major retail towns across the country including Newcastle, Geelong, Townsville, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast regions. In addition, they are currently exported throughout South East Asia, the Asia Pacific region, the Pacific Islands and the UAE.
