The City of Sydney is working with leading private developers to create a new and sustainable $13 billion, 14 hectare urban renewal project, Green Square, with world-class community facilities and extensive infrastructure. It is projected that by 2030 Green Square will house 61000 people and 22000 new workers, only 3.5km from the CBD in Sydney’s Inner South and 4km from the International Airport at Mascot.
A small part of this investment includes construction of a new community library and The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC) has recently installed one of its unique extendable safety barriers to the library entry.
Specified by Sydney architect, Stewart Hollenstein, ATDC worked closely with project managers John Holland in delivering a custom-made lock up door solution to this prestigious project. ATDC’s S04-1 DD Double Diamond mesh extendable safety barrier was the door of choice for the project architect since it provided a free-standing and robust yet economic security solution and was able to be installed in the absence of any available support structure. In addition, ATDC’s unique barriers not only comply with the Australian Standards for Temporary Fencing and Hoardings but is also compliant with the emergency egress requirements of the BCA allowing keyless egress in the event of an emergency. Being installed at the entry to the public library it was essential that this emergency egress facility was incorporated into the design of the barrier system. ATDC installed a similar system for the State Transit Authority at Barangaroo at the entry to the new ferry terminal.For further information see article at https://www.trellisdoors.com.
The barrier system was installed at the foot of the stairs to the library entry and was formatted in a U-shaped configuration to completely surround the balustrading on the stairs. (see photograph of the installation attached). Supplied at a standard height of 2020mm, the mobile and portable extendable safety barrier was installed on a series of heavy duty non-marking thermoplastic castors and was finished in a satin black powdercoat. Intermediate shoot bolts which engage with the finished floor were used to stabilize the barrier system which.
