Engineers from The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) have designed
a new range of retractable security screens that addresses the perennial
problem of adapting flyscreen mesh to collapsible screens.
ATDC engineers have successfully adapted a retractable flyscreen to their
concertina style security screens, overcoming the problem of the insect screen
mesh becoming intertwined amongst all the moving parts of the security screens.
The new design uses a high quality spring loaded flyscreen, which retracts in
tandem with the security screens and slides along a fully captive extruded
aluminium top and bottom track, rolling into a concealed slimline pelmet box on
the side of the opening.
Similar in colour to the security screens, the insect screens blend into
the surrounds, almost invisible and unnoticeable. ATDC’s new retractable
security screens address a growing customer demand for a solution that would provide
formidable security while also ensuring protection from insects and other
ATDC’s security screens are recommended for securing various residential
openings including sliding
glass doors, patio doors, alcoves, carports, French doors, windows,
passageways, front doors and bi fold glass doors.
Some of the advantages of ATDC’s new security
screens include ability to provide a formidable security barrier, folding
out of sight when not in use behind curtains or blinds; maximum sunlight
allowed into the room when locked, combining security and vermin protection
with free flow of fresh air and ventilation; marine grade aluminium or
toughened steel construction; multi-point locking options; full frames for
extra strength; and stainless steel rivets or brass rivets providing that extra
level of home security.
ATDC’s extensive range of security screens is now sold in Sydney,
Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Newcastle, Geelong and
Townsville as well as all other regional towns and centres across
