The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed a prestigious installation for DFS Group’s new duty free store at Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Working closely with leading international luxury retailer DFS Group and specifying architect PMDL, Hong Kong, ATDC supplied its cutting-edge retractable security gates to secure the luxury store’s valuable merchandise.
ATDC also collaborated on this project with structural engineer, Structon Group and fit-out specialist, Fixx Systems (both companies are based in Vietnam) to produce a finished product that surpassed the customer’s expectations.
PMDL’s Hong Kong office approached ATDC primarily because the company possesses the most space-efficient retail closure in the market today, namely its S07-2 side-by-side retractable security gates that operate on a tandem top tracking system. The wide and curved shopfront opening (nearly 45 metres) requires a space-efficient solution that complements the customer’s high-profile luxury image. ATDC provided its S08 curved retractable security gate in a dual S07-2 top track configuration, thereby achieving a minimal storage requirement for the doors during trading hours.
Several kiosk locations within the store itself also require individual security. However, these provided a challenge since these particular locations have extremely high ceilings and do not have top structural bulkheads. In these locations, ATDC supplied the S04-1 trackless, mobile retractable security gates—these provide DFS Group with the required security of their valuable merchandise. The barriers were installed in rectangular configurations to secure the particular angled shape of the kiosks. Other configurations are also possible, which include circular or curved apertures.
ATDC supplies its quality retractable security gates throughout South East Asia, to countries like Hong Kong and Singapore, as well as the Asia Pacific region and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Within Australia, the company supplies retractable security gates in Adelaide; Brisbane; Canberra; Darwin; Geelong; Melbourne; Newcastle; Perth; Sydney; and all regional towns across the country.
ATDC is currently working on a prestigious project at Singapore Changi Airport, where ATDC’s retractable security gates are being installed at eight high-profile retail tenancies. While the standard powder-coated finish for these gates is either black satin or pearl white, a special silver pearl finish is being applied to the ones at Changi.
ATDC’s retractable security gates are suitable for commercial, industrial and residential applications. The gates comply with the Australian Standards and offer multi-point locking mechanisms and full frames. They are constructed from heavy-duty steel or extruded aluminium for extra rigidity and strength. The gates require no headroom and are able to have an unlimited span without the need for any removable mullions, making them easy to operate. The gates have extremely low maintenance, requiring only a regular application of silicone spray to keep the top track and moving components well-lubricated.
