Big-screen challenges no match for ATDC screens


ATDC’s recent installation of its S06 commercial security screens at the Dendy Cinema on King Street in Newtown, NSW, had to overcome some interesting challenges.

The project presented very wide spans with both minimal head room and tight storage space availability to stack the screens when unlocked, opened and not in use. Furthermore, the openings had very noticeable sloping floors.

ATDC’s S06 commercial security screens provided the ideal solution to these challenges. Secured with a slimline heavy-duty extruded aluminium top track, which requires very little overhead clearance, supported from a robust top support beam, these doors were installed on a parallel top track. This configuration reduced the side stacking requirement to a mere 8% of the total span being secured.

A system of self-adjusting bottom internal metal inserts allowed the door to traverse the gradient in the floor quite easily.
