ATDC door lock certified to comply as an egress door

The Australian Trellis Door Company's (ATDC) new door locking mechanism has been certified to comply with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) Clause D1 and D2 for doors, doorways and exits.

With this compliance, ATDC’s door range is now one of the few suppliers providing doors to comply with these regulations, which legally certifies the products.

Exit doors and their locking requirements receive special treatment under clause 2.21 of the BCA since they are an integral and vital part of the fire and safety infrastructure of any building.

The company recently developed a new egress-handle and protective plate solution to enable easy keyless opening and exit from the inside of the store in an emergency situation.

The plate is constructed from high-strength thick Lexan sheeting, which is cut, bent and slotted to enable it to slide with the concertina action of the folding trellis security door. A layer of 3M black vinyl film is applied to the Lexan to block out external visibility of the handle position situated on the inside of the plate/door.

Someone trapped on the inside of the store need merely push down the lever handle and slide the trellis door sideways to gain egress from the store.

For entry to the store, another lock, the ATDC Three-point Alumax Lock, is fitted to the centre of the door for easy key-turn access. This lock may be keyed-alike to other restrictive locking systems.
