Dortek completes its largest ever retail project in Ikea, Malaysia
Dortek has recently completed its largest retail project in the world’s biggest furniture retailer, IKEA.
The new IKEA store, which opened it’s doors in November 2015, is located in Jalan Cochrane and is very close to the city centre as well as major highways and the future Cochrane MRT station – making it an easily accessible store. It is the second IKEA store in Malaysia and spans 42,000m2 and is 20% bigger than it’s counterpart in Mutiara Damansara. It has 56 showrooms and offers a range of 8,500 products.
Dortek manufactured and installed 31 hygienic GRP door sets including single and double action doors plus an automatic GRP sliding door, automatic rapid roll door and internal windows supplied with Stainless Steel frames.
Our GRP retail doors, installed by our own team of fitters, are located in the brand new state of the art kitchen and restaurant areas. Dortek retail doors were not originally specified by the architect but once they had seen the high quality of the doors and the hygienic benefits they offer it was the only viable solution.
All of our GRP doors and frames were manufactured in the clients chosen colour, Light Aircraft Grey, with all single action doors fitted with either lever handles and sash locks or latches and pull handles with dead locks.
The majority of GRP door sets are fitted with clear double glazed laminated safety glass vision panels and all door blades have been fitted with 200 mm high stainless steel kick plates at low and high level locations to provide protection for the door blades.
Dortek GRP doors were chosen for wash down areas over timber doors because they will not swell, rot, warp or rust in wet conditions. Their ultra clean construction prevents bacteria from harbouring and is not affected by the use of cleaning materials.
Dortek GRP doors are a low maintenance solution which helps reduce both costs and improve performance long term. Whilst this is the first IKEA project that Dortek has worked on in Asia, we have installed our GRP double action traffic doors into every IKEA store throughout the UK and Ireland and also in IKEA stores in Melbourne and Canberra, Australia.
