Dortek hermetic sealing sliding doors are specifically designed for use in areas where hygiene and the control of air leakage is critical. The door has a unique patented track system which enables it to seal perfectly when closed helping to reduce cross contamination and expensive air handling costs. Air leakage has been tested independently and results up to 400 Pa pressure are available.
Hygienic Flush Finish
The door blade is a strong rigid 60mm thick panel finished with hard plastic laminate and flush anodised aluminium profiles giving a flat smooth, easy clean surface.
The doors patented track system, which works in combination with the door’s weight, works with a continuous neoprene gasket to create a perfect seal against the doorframe. This seal has been independently tested and found to be more than 99% effective, leaking less than 0.2m³/hr of clean air with a typical pressure differential of 20 Pa.
Smooth Sliding Action
The doors smooth, controlled, sliding action helps to reduce air disturbance and the consequent movement of airborne micro-organisms. The door cuts through the air causing minimal disturbance, whereas traditional hinged doors can disrupt the airflow within the clean area each time they are opened.
The intelligent automation senses if an obstruction is present and prevents the door from closing thus eliminating the need for a dirty safety strip. Additional safety is provided by means of a photo cell fitted across the door opening. Our range of automations can be integrated with a range of access control systems including touchless sensors for effortless, hands free operation.
Patented Track System
The unique patented track system is angled at 45 degrees and special indentations allow the bearings to roll down enabling the door using its own weight to seal perfectly against the frame and floor.
Floor Sealing System
A tough neoprene gasket seals perfectly against a level floor without the need for a raised threshold. Guiding and sealing cams are fitted outside the clear opening eliminating the requirements for a floor track, allowing free unrestricted access for wheeled traffic.
X-Ray & Fire Protection
Doors can be supplied with up to 60 minutes fire ratings, sound insulation and lead lining.

Dortek have been specified to supply our innovative access solutions to a new intra-operative Khoo Teck Puat IMRI Suite at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). The new suite is set to transform the way brain surgery is performed at the hospital.
Currently, surgeons rely on images of the brain taken before surgery to guide them through the operation, but structures in the brain can move during surgery, meaning pre-operative scans can quickly lose their accuracy. In addition, tumours are sometimes located under arteries or nerves, making them undetectable to the naked eye.
Surgeons know that removing as much of a tumour or affected area as possible is crucial – the more they remove, the more likely a child is to be successfully treated – but they must also be extremely careful not to damage healthy tissue during the process. Unfortunately, the current facilities at GOSH mean that children must wait several days after an operation for a scan of their brain. During this time, patients and families face a difficult and anxious wait until surgeons are able to confirm if all the affected area has been successfully removed.
The new Intraoperative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (iMRI) Suite will enable surgeons to scan a child during an operation to confirm whether or not complex procedures have worked. It will also help surgeons to avoid other vital areas and structures in the brain when performing operations. This real-time imaging means surgeons can make informed decisions to ensure the best outcomes for children.
The new iMRI Suite
The Khoo Teck Puat iMRI Suite will make imaging the brain during operations a seamless procedure, giving more critically ill children the best chance of a positive result. The facility will include:
- A new integrated operating theatre – This new theatre will embrace the latest in theatre technology, including brain mapping and navigation software to guide a surgeon throughout the procedure. It will also include a built-in shuttle system to safely transport patients seamlessly from the theatre to the MRI scanner without the child leaving the operating table.
- 3T MRI scanner – A state-of-the-art 3T MRI scanner will offer outstanding clarity and high-definition images of the brain, giving surgeons the optimum information for their decision-making.
- Two anaesthetic rooms – One anaesthetic room will have direct access to the theatre and the other will connect to the MRI scanning room. Crucially, each room will provide a friendly and calm environment that will allow parents to stay with their child before their surgery until they are asleep.
- Control room – A dedicated area will allow radiographers, radiologists and surgeons to interpret real-time imaging during an operation and agree how best to proceed with the patient’s surgery.
- Scanning room – The scanning room will be a purpose-designed, child-friendly environment that will create as welcoming a space as possible for our young patients.
Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is an international centre of excellence in child healthcare. Together with their research partner, the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, they form the UK’s only academic Biomedical Research Centre specialising in paediatrics. The hospital is home to the country’s leading neurology and neurosurgery teams. It sees more children with brain tumours and carries out more surgery for patients with epilepsy than any other UK hospital.
