The Repco store in Penrith, NSW has been secured with security gates from The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC).

ATDC recently installed their high grade S06 security gates to secure the shopfront at Repco Penrith.

One of Australasia’s 25 most recognised brands, Repco operates a large network of 400-plus stores in Australia and New Zealand, and also employs more than 2000 staff. Repco is Australia’s largest reseller and supplier in the automotive parts and accessories aftermarket.

ATDC’s design engineers worked closely with Repco’s specifying architects as well as shopfitter Storebuild Pty Ltd out of Melbourne on the custom security gates. ATDC was contracted to design a security gate solution that combined a compact size with space-efficiency when unlocked during business hours. A key challenge was to design a security gate that needed to fold back and occupy a side storage area, which was only 6% of the opening span of the shopfront.

ATDC offered their innovative side-by-side parallel top track configuration that literally halved the normal stacking sizes of their security gates. By designing the doors in a bi-parting double leaf arrangement, ATDC was able to resolve the limited storage space challenge. A series of intermediate up/down locking mechanisms alleviated the need for any floor tracks, and provided a seamless lock-up solution.

ATDC additionally offers their unique side-by-side configuration for curved and angled shopfronts as well as straight-line applications, allowing customers to maximise visual display of merchandise in their retail stores. The maximum curve/angle that is operationally achievable is a 90-degree turn through a 600mm radius curve.

ATDC’s compact security gates are available in standard black satin and white pearl powder-coated finishes. Customers can also choose from the standard Australian Dulux powdercoat range.

ATDC’s security gates are now available for sale in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra as well as all regional towns across the country including Newcastle, Geelong, Townsville, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast. The gates are also exported throughout South East Asia, the Pacific Islands and the UAE.
