Australian Geographic, a division of Co-Op, which is Australia’s largest university campus retailer, is currently undergoing a major store rollout and expansion across the country. The Australian Trellis Door Company’s concertina folding closures can be seen on the front of many of these new stores.
Aplin Creative, a creative interior design studio out of Darlington in Sydney, has specified The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC)’s folding closure doors and its other retail shopfront doors for the Australian Geographic national store rollout. ATDC has been coordinating works with the many different appointed shopfitters to the various new store builds across Australia to ensure timely delivery and installation in order to meet handover deadlines. ATDC is a renowned retail shopfront door specialist having been involved in many high profile store rollouts over the past decade.
The specified product is ATDC’s 300mm wide panel FC1 Folding Closure in a natural anodised finish, in many cases with radius curves to accommodate angled frontages and with seamless up/down locking mechanisms both at the extremities of the door as well down locking mechanisms to lock up intermediate sections of the door.
Always with heavy duty extruded aluminium top track, heavy-duty top hangars and commercial grade top wheels to ensure easy operation and longevity, the folding closure doors operate smoothly and slide and stack sideways into their storage pockets through a series of interlocking hinges.
In an article last year which appeared in the Australian Financial Review it was observed that Australian Geographic had reinvigorated itself through its shift to a more upmarket focus, selling mainly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)related products, following its purchase in 2016 from the Myer family of Melbourne.
The company continues to simultaneously invest in its digital and online prescence while rolling out this considerable investment in bricks and mortar outlets across the country.
ATDC’s folding closure doors are available for sale in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth as well as in all major retail towns across the country including Newcastle, Geelong, Townsville and the Sunshine and Gold Coast regions. In addition, they are currently exported throughout South East Asia, the Asia Pacific region, the Pacific Islands and the UAE.
