The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) was engaged to supply and install their premium grade commercial security grilles for North Sydney Railway Station.

ATDC’s commercial security grilles were installed at the interchange entry leading from the railway station through to Greenwood Plaza Shopping Centre. The security grilles were installed to structural supports provided by Simco, the project managers for this job. ATDC carried out the installation late at night so as not to interfere with the running of Sydney’s trains.

Key features of ATDC’s commercial security grilles include 6000mm wide grille retracting to a compact storage area of only 15% of the total area secured, remaining discreetly concealed during trading hours; recessed floor track allowing free flow of foot traffic at the railway interchange; removable floor cover plate in place during opening hours to create a seamless effect to the finished floor; unique magnetic locking arrangement installed on the grille to comply with the BCA; and magnetic lock wired to the building’s fire indicator panel and designed to automatically unlock and release in the event of fire, creating a keyless egress system for emergencies.

ATDC’s commercial security grilles have been specified for several railway stations across the country, mainly for their heritage design appeal. Clients include Queensland Rail, WA Rail, Vic Rail, Metrail, Sydney’s Light Rail and NSW State Rail.

ATDC’s commercial security grilles are now sold in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra as well as in all regional centres across the country including Newcastle, Geelong, Wollongong and Townsville. These commercial security grilles are also exported widely to Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and throughout South East Asia and the Asia Pacific and Pacific Islands.
