Supporting Comic Relief 2017 at Dortek

£400 has been raised by Dortek employees who took part in a football fundraiser last week, in support of Comic Relief.

The 5-a-side teams were sales (blues) Vs operations (reds). It was a close match but the reds managed to clinch victory, ending the match with a 10-9 defeat.

A big thank you to all the staff who took part and to those who donated. As a leading door manufacturer supplying companies around the world, Dortek are pleased to be able to raise money to help the less fortunate in some of those countries.

Since the last Red Nose Day, funding has helped…

  • Over 860,000 children in Africa to be given life-saving vaccines.
  • Over 43,000 people with a mental health condition in the UK to get the support they need.
  • Over 310,000 children, young people and their families, at risk of abuse, violence and exploitation internationally, to lead safer lives.

Comic Relief funds over 2,000 amazing projects in the UK. Discover the difference that Comic Relief is making on your doorstep at

Dortek doors achieve exceptional acoustic test results

Dortek has achieved impressive new acoustic test results for its versatile GRP doors. The tests included a series of assessments to establish the acoustic performance on a pair of Dortek doors both in a GRP frame and a Stainless Steel frame.

All doors were tested in accordance with BS EN ISO 10140-2: Sound Reduction Index. The pair of doors in the GRP frame achieved a sound reduction capability of between 36 and 38 dB dependent on the combination of seals employed.

The pair of doors in the stainless steel frame achieved a sound reduction capability of between 37 and 40 dB, again dependent on the combination of seals employed. The results are particularly impressive for a 40mm thick door and positions Dortek as a market leader in the GRP field.

Dortek’s acoustic doors reduce and control sound transmission to prevent unwanted noise in commercial, industrial and public buildings. Our acoustic range can deliver various levels of sound reduction to suit individual room and building requirements.
