The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) offers safety barriers designed to restrict access to heavy plant and machinery in industrial environments, helping prevent injury to workers from potentially dangerous moving parts.

Seen as a vital organisational health and safety tool in the industrial sector, ATDC’s safety barriers guard against personal injury from robotic arms, coiling machines and conveyor belt systems. The expandable safety barriers are fabricated from robust high tensile steel components, and are also ideal for factories, warehouses and other workplace locations for preventing accidental slips and falls. The barriers can also be used to restrict access to sensitive areas such as those containing hazardous substances and high value inventory.

The trackless safety barriers operate on heavy duty thermoplastic bottom castors making them portable, easy to manoeuvre and mobile, and allowing them to be set up in multiple locations in the same premises to meet new employee safety and access control requirements. Being modular in design, the safety barriers can be manufactured to unlimited spans to secure the widest possible openings.

Key features of ATDC’s expandable safety barriers include multiple wall mounted/ floor mounted locking solutions and lockable bottom wheels enhancing security; digital card readers allowing for 24-hour access for select staff and employees; versatile application range including securing elevated work platforms, lift shafts and open pits; and double diamond mesh version eliminating possibility of a human adult’s hand to reach through the barrier.

Recent independent testing at a NATA approved facility confirms that in certain circumstances, ATDC’s expandable safety barriers pass most of the requirements of the relevant Australian Standard 4687-2007 for Temporary Fencing and Hoarding. In addition, ATDC has Australia’s first independently audited written WHS Risk Assessment for their barrier products.

ATDC offers their safety barriers in both steel and aluminium. The safety barriers are now sold in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and all regional centres across Australia.
