The Francis Crick Institute

The Francis Crick Institute

The Francis Crick Institute (the Crick) will be an inter-disciplinary medical research institute. Its work will help understand why disease develops and find new ways to treat, diagnose and prevent illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases. The Crick is a consortium of six of the UK’s most successful scientific and academic organisations.


The Crick required hygienic door solutions and automation systems to be installed throughout the facility.


Dortek designed and installed more than 500 bespoke hygienic doors and automation systems throughout the facility. This included non fire rated and fire rated single action and sliding doors & hermetically sealing sliding doors. Our doors were essential for providing protection across hazardous fire areas. Our void free doors are also hygienic, easy to clean, non absorbent and do not harbour bacteria. This makes them ideally suited to research laboratories which are sensitive to contamination.
