INCREASED FOCUS ON SHOPFRONT SECURITY FOR AIRPORT RETAILERS
The landscape for the security sector has seen global revolutionary changes, and Australia is not an exception. For the first time, Australian retailers are now facing new security risks that had only been experienced in films and television programmes.
The demand for increased security has seen retailers proactively investing in a number of different measures to protect their merchandise from vandalism and theft, including retailers at airports and other public buildings across the country, as well as those in shopping centres; shopping strips, restaurants; clubs; hotels; and gyms.
In recent years, the Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has successfully installed its extensive range of retailer-friendly security doors and shutters for retail stores at airports across Australia. This includes the international airports at Brisbane; Cairns; Darwin; Gold Coast; Melbourne; Perth; Port Hedland; and Sydney, as well as the domestic airports at Melbourne and Sydney.
Many leading retailers in Australia rely on ATDC’s successful track record and extensive experience in the security industry. As such, they have chosen ATCD’s quality range of security doors and security shutters to be installed for their retail shopfronts. Industry retailers include Purely Merino; Australian Way; RM Williams; Billabong; News Travels; Quicksilver; and Flight Centre, etc.
Recently, Heinemann, the global German-owned retailer, was awarded a duty-free concession at the Sydney International Airport and has installed nearly 600 lineal metres of ATDC’s portable, expandable, roll-away security barriers/doors to secure its store. To date, this is the largest single contract that is ever awarded in Australia for portable security gates.
In addition, JR Duty Free has just installed 60 lineal metres of ATDC’S top hung SO6 heavy duty trellis security door at its new store at Brisbane International Airport.
ATDC’s security doors and shutters are distinctive. They fold back to a mere 15 per cent of their expanded width so as not to be visible during trading hours. They can be made to comply with egress requirements under the Building Code of Australia (BCA) where required, and are manufactured to span unlimited widths and accommodate curved apertures. The trackless barrier does not require an overhead structure as it is completely freestanding. ATDC has a fully documented workplace safety and health (WHS) risk assessment completed for its trackless security gates.
Following its success at major Australian airports, ATDC also has successful installations of its security doors and shutters at major international airports globally, including Heathrow Airport (London); Tan Son Nhat International Airport (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam); Changi Airport (Singapore); Nadi International Airport (Fiji); Hong Kong International Airport (Chek Lap KoK, Hong Kong); and Port Moresby International Airport (Papua New Guinea).
ATDC has become a true specialist in airport security facilities. Many of these jobs have been installed out of working hours, under tight deadlines with challenging site access and conditions.
ATDC’s range provides a cost effective and innovative solution to retailers' security needs and is backed up by a 40-year trading record. Quality management staff will design a bespoke solution to projects anywhere in the world.
