Dortek is a leading provider of hygienic doors, including waterproof doors. In this blog, we will explore why Dortek waterproof doors are specified by our clients and their benefits.

The benefits of Dortek waterproof doors

For wet or moisture-prone areas the design of a building becomes increasingly complex, with buildings needing to withstand both warm, humid conditions internally but also cold external conditions throughout the winter. Doors in these areas will need to be versatile in order to withstand severe temperature variations, damp conditions and the frequent use of chlorine/cleaning chemicals.

Choosing the correct waterproof doors is essential to maintaining good hygienic and longevity. In industries such as leisure, healthcare, food and pharmaceuticals, maintaining hygiene and cleanliness is of utmost importance. Waterproof doors are designed to resist moisture and prevent bacterial growth, making them an ideal solution for environments that require high levels of cleanliness.

Waterproof doors are designed to withstand exposure to water and moisture, making them more durable than traditional doors. They are less likely to warp, rot, or decay and they can withstand a wide range of temperatures, from extreme heat to extreme cold.


Dortek’s Waterproof Doors - GRP vs Timber.

The results of specifying the wrong door

Timber doors have an organic core with natural seams and crevices which makes them impossible to keep clean. These doors also soak up any moisture which will cause them to swell, warp, rot and decay. The door also knocks, chips and splinters easily, which in turn creates perfect breeding grounds for bacteria to grow.
