A curved security door from The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) was installed at the after hour canteen as part of the upgrade project to the existing library at the Burwood Campus of Deakin University.

ATDC’s S08 curved security door was specified by Ian McEwan Designs of Surrey Hills, Victoria and the project managers for the job were the North Melbourne-based Harris HMC.

The curved security door measured approximately 9m wide x 3.2m high and featured a satin black powdercoat finish. Traversing a 90-degree turn through a 600mm curved radius, the security barrier was supported from above by a structural support beam, which followed the entire length of the span and the contours of the opening.

With no floor tracking, the door’s lock up was achieved through a series of multiple intermediate up/down locking mechanisms to enable a seamless security solution.
