The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently participated in a high-profile project at Singapore’s Changi Airport newest terminal, Terminal 4 (T4).
Working closely with procurement specialist JEB Asia, ATDC has supplied its unique security grilles to eight tenancies at T4’s Heritage Zone, which showcases Singapore’s local culture and flavour to international passengers. The Heritage Zone in the transit area gives passengers a glimpse into the evolution of shophouse architecture from the 1880s to the 1950s. Part of the job description included installing security grilles that would complement the traditional façade of the pre-war shophouses that were built before World War II, where retail shops were below the shophouses whilst the second and third storeys were residential units. There are preserved shophouses still in existence and they are under the heritage conservation in Singapore’s Katong and Chinatown areas. A further requirement was that the security grilles were to occupy as little storage space as physically possible when unlocked and opened.
With the above objectives in mind, Changi Airport specified ATDC's S07-2-side-by-side retractable security grilles, which are among the most space efficient commercial door systems currently available in the international market. By installing the top tracks of these security grilles in a parallel tandem top track configuration, ATDC is able to offer a lock-up solution to its client that occupied a mere 8% of the daylight opening spans of these tenancies. Furthermore, through the use of its seamless up/down locking mechanisms, this solution offers considerably wide spans without the need for cumbersome removeable mullions or floor tracking to contain these doors. A further requirement was that the locking mechanisms on the security grilles had to be customisable to the specific master keying system at Changi Airport.

A special precious silver pearl powdercoated finish is applied to blend in with the general finishes of the immediate surroundings of the Heritage Zone. Standard ATDC stock finishes include pearl white or satin black, although any Dulux powdercoat finish can be used to match any individual colour scheme.
The security grilles were all customised and fabricated to specific sizes from dimensions that were detailed on architectural and engineering drawings. They were then attached to structural support frames designed in advance by JEB Asia in conjunction with ATDC. The installation was successfully completed and Changi Airport is a satisfied customer.
ATDC sells its security grilles in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Canberra as well as in all regional areas across Australia including Townsville, Darwin, Hobart, Newcastle and Geelong. ATDC also has a thriving export business, with its security grilles now being sold throughout Southeast Asia and the Asia Pacific region (including Vietnam, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia), as well as to the UAE, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
