Veterinary and animal care facilities face the same hygiene concerns and focus as human health care facilities, plus they have the added challenges of managing the animal patients, zoonotic pathogen threats and also odour control.
Infection control ranks high on the list of priorities and doors are one of the most critical elements, because they are subject to constant use. Doors in veterinary surgeries are subject to high amounts of traffic and exposure to hazardous chemicals on a daily basis.
Dortek’s innovative GRP doors, created with evidence-based design (EBD) principles in mind, have an inorganic surface and core which makes them hygienic and easy to keep clean. They are completely water and chemical resistant and will not warp, rust or rot like alternative timber or laminate solutions.
Doors can be supplied with automation, fire ratings or lead-lining for use in enhanced imaging modalities, such as digital radiology, CTs and MRIs.
- Dortek hygienic doors have a non-porous, smooth hygienic surface which is completely water resistant.
- They are also resistant to most disinfectants, urine, animal waste and strong chemicals including H2O2.
- Our doors are exceptionally lightweight, impact resistant with long-lasting built-in colour.
- This gives them low life cycle costs and means they are often proven to outlive their usage.
Areas of Application
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.
