Airport Doors - Quality Door Solutions
Major Projects

Southern Cross Station – 2006
Southern Cross Station, formerly known as Spencer Street Station was officially opened on December 13th 2005. As the Victorian Premier Steve Bracks revealed the new name of the station, so did he reveal the remarkable Vertical Lift Door in which Airport Doors designed and manufactured in consultation with Grimshaw Jackson Joint Venture and Winward Structures.

The Vertical Lift Door is 3m high by 30.5m wide, and is one of the widest single span glazed counterweight doors ever made in Australia. Airport Doors also designed and manufactured another large door, which when opened doubles as a canopy. The glazed Canopy Door is 16m wide by 5.7m high and operates using hydraulic cylinders and cam levers. Both doors are major pedestrian entry points into the station and are only closed when the station itself is closed. Airport Doors are proud to be a part of such a brilliant project and landmark.
