The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently completed a large installation of commercial roller shutters at Cardiff RSL in the NSW Hunter Valley.

Specified by Newcastle firm EJE Architecture  and project managed by JMC Building,this project entailed  installing ATDC’s electric operated widespan RS6 commercial roller shutters to numerous bar counters and poker machine room areas at the club.The purpose of the roller shutter installation was to weatherproof the outdoor gaming rooms,protect the poker machines as well as assist the club in complying with the legislation which prohibits smoking indoors in licensed premises and requires smoking areas to be open to the outdoors in order to allow the smoke to blow away.

The heavy duty commercial roller shutters installed by ATDC at Cardiff RSL allows the venue to move its poker machines into the covered outdoor areas which comply with the above mentioned smoking legislation and also  thereby securing these areas during closing times against both intruders and the outdoor elements.

The RS6 widespan commercial roller shutters have a 77mm aluminium slat profile and can span up to 6000mm in one section without the need for multiple roller shutters with their normally unwieldy and cumbersome removable mullions.The slat profile can be supplied in either a solid or a slotted section.In this particular installation the roller shutters were supplied with electric operation by way of keyswitch mechanisms which operated the shutters through a group control mechanism which allowed the roller shutters to operate either individually or as a series operating simultaneously. A back up battery was also installed to ensure that the shutters can still operate  in the event of a power failture.

ATDC’’s commercial roller shutters have many applications and are suitable for securing shopfronts, shoppingcentres, warehouses, banks, showrooms, hotels, universities, schools, carparks and other commercial and government buildings.The shutters are sleek,unobtrusive and strong and roll up completely out of the way when not in use so as not to obstruct the opening at all.Top pelmet boxes are an optional extra in cases where the drum rolls are installed below ceiling height.For further information on ATDC’’s slimline roller shutters see an article at
