ATDC assisted in designing a folding security door to secure Railway House as part of the Wynyard Walk project in Sydney's CBD.

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has been involved with the NSW Government’s $300 million Wynyard Walk project in Sydney's CBD, which entails the construction of a world-class, fully accessible pedestrian link connecting Wynyard Station to both Barrangaroo and the CBD western corridor.

ATDC was engaged by the lead architect for the project, Woods Bagot, to assist in designing a folding security door to secure Railway House, a heritage building on York Street with doorways leading to York Lane.

It was imperative that the folding security doors blended into the surrounds of the historic building so as to have minimal impact. In this regard, the doors are trackless and designed to pivot out of the way when unlocked and not in use. A powdercoat finish in Signalschwarz was selected from the international RAL powdercoat range to further complement the heritage facade of the building.

Involved in all aspects of the design process of the folding security doors, ATDC also liaised with the project managers, CPB Contractors, to arrange for the challenging installation, as ATDC was not permitted to affix to the heritage facade or to lock on to it. To avoid attaching to the facade, specially designed welded frames were constructed, which were attached to the floor and ceiling, while special seamless up/down locking mechanisms were utilized to avoid locking onto the facade. In addition, the locking mechanisms on these folding security doors had to be keyed to the master key system used for the site.

ATDC's folding security doors have been installed on many heritage buildings throughout Australia including many of the old railway stations in Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and Victoria. In each case the antiquated old-style appeal of these doors, as well as their negligible impact on each of the relevant historic buildings, have been their major advantages.
