Doors within leisure centres, swimming pools and sports facilities need to withstand heavy usage while being strong, durable and hygienic.
Doors in these environments are exposed to high levels of traffic, frequent moisture and corrosive chemicals. They’re also fundamental for providing security and fire safety across a building.
Dortek leisure doors are ideal for these environments due to their non absorbent, smooth, seamless GRP construction. Dortek doors are easy to clean and unaffected by steam, chlorine and cleaning agents. They will not rust, swell, or warp even after years of exposure to moisture and water.
Dortek strongly believes that our GRP leisure doors are far more hygienic and therefore appropriate for leisure centres than timber, laminate or steel doors which are still sometimes used. GRP doors have much lower life cycle costs as alternative solutions often need replacing due to damage and water corrosion.
Timber doors are organic, not suitable for wet areas, and unhygienic as a result. Laminate doors can delaminate and are heavier and also not suitable for wet areas. Steel doors can rust, are heavy to operate and costly to repair.
- Dortek hygienic doors have a non-porous, smooth hygienic surface which is completely water resistant.
- Inorganic construction to prevent bacterial growth or harbouring vermin
- Resistant to water, chemicals and fumigation agents
- Built to last, even in the harshest of environments; our doors will not dent, warp, swell, rot or rust.
What our clients say
We have installed Dortek’s GRP doors for the past 12 years in 3 of our locations in Europe. The doors are ideal in production areas as they are without seams or crevices into which dirt and bacteria can gather as well as being very strong and hard wearing. I have found Dortek staff very technically competent, focused on working with me on presenting solutions to problems, and I regularly recommend Dortek to colleagues and peers in our industry.
Global Manufacturing Company
Infection control is of critical importance in our premises and, therefore, specifying the correct doors for our new operating theatres was crucial. We are impressed with the high quality and clean appearance of Dortek’s doors which are particularly suited to sterile areas. Their installation team were very professional, helpful and knowledgeable and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others in the industry.
