The hygienic qualities of our doors mean they are suited to many levels of laboratory upto Bio Safety Level (BSL) 4. They combine impact resistance with a perfectly smooth ledge free finish compliant with GLP requirements. Dortek’s glass reinforced polyester (GRP) doors are resistant to the latest cleaning regimes such as vaporised hydrogen peroxide (VHP) which corrodes traditional steel doors.
Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) Doors
Dortek GRP doors are manufactured from reinforced polyester and contain no organic material. GRP doors have a moulded smooth seamless one piece construction which is easy to clean, does not harbour bacteria and is unaffected by moisture and commonly used chemicals and cleaning agents. This makes them particularly suitable in areas that have regular and rigorous cleaning regimes.
GRP doors are extremely strong and durable, yet light and easy to operate. The built-in colour of GRP doors is aesthetically pleasing and requires no maintenance.
Unlike timber or steel doors, GRP doors are non – shedding and will not warp, swell, rot or rust, even in the most arduous conditions. Dortek GRP doors can be supplied as: Hinged, Double action, or single action, Sliding or bi-parting and Fire rated upto 4 Hours.

Constructed of a fully flush 2 x 6mm glass panel the Dortek fully glazed sliding door is both aesthetically pleasing and allows the maximum amount of light and vision between different areas. Despite giving a bright and open appearance this door also offers hermetic sealing reducing cross contamination.
Manufactured from GRP our range of sliding doors are particularly suitable where hinged doors cannot be specified due to a combination of floor area not being available within the room and narrow access corridors. They are also a moulded one piece product and offer all of the benefits mentioned in our earlier section on GRP doors.
Independently tested to a number of international standards including British Standard (BS) 476 and European Norm (EN) 1634 Dortek GRP fire doors offer the unique combination of hygiene and fire performance. Hinged doors carry up to a 4 hour rating and sliding doors up to 2 hours. Both can be supplied with fully flush vision panel’s up to a maximum 400 x 600mm dimension.
Hermetic Sealing Doors
Dortek hermetic sealing sliding doors are specified in areas where control of air leakage is critical. They use a unique rail system which allows the door to seal against the floor and wall at the very end of the closing cycle giving reliable performance and minimum wear to the door seals. Air leakage has been tested independently and results upto 400 Pa pressure differential are available upon request.
Automation and Interlocking
Door automation eliminates the need to touch the door surface, therefore reducing contamination and making traffic movement much easier. In a controlled environment there are often air pressure differentials working across the door openings which affect the operation of the doors. Dortek automations are designed specifically to work within such demanding environments.
Both automated and manual doors can be interlocked using Dortek bespoke plc based control panels. They can be linked to the building management system, fire alarm and even cleanroom equipment.
Manufactured to suit both traditional built and modular wall systems the Dortek cleanroom window complies with GMP/GLP requirements. Units can be offered with integral blinds, smartglass and fire rating independently tested to European Norm (EN) 1364 – 1 for upto 2 hours fire resistance.
