The Dortek door systemDortek

The Dortek door system is manufactured with fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP), which is an extremely tough, clean and water-resistant material ideal for cleanroom environments. Using a unique closed-mold process, each door is manufactured with no seams or joints, and no holes or crevices inside. Molding the color into the door means the doors will never require repainting or refinishing. Each Dortek door ships complete from the factory with all of the necessary hardware required to mount the door.

Here’s a comparison between Dortek FRP doors and steel doors:

Dortek FRP DoorsSteel Doors
Smooth, seamless construction – easy to clean to prevent bacteria from breedingLarge seams, voids and crevices – hard to clean and allows bacteria to breed
Will not rust, rot, swell or warp – completely sealed and impervious to the elementsRusts from the inside out, causing health and security hazards
Unaffected by moisture, disinfectants, chlorine and vaporized hydrogen peroxideNot waterproof and often oxides when exposed to regular cleaning regimes
Numerous color options, which are molded into the door – never needs paintingMarks and dents easy – requires continuous maintenance and upkeep
42% lighter than steel – safer and easier to operateHeavy to operate – excessive wear on hinges and closers requires maintenance or replacement
Environmentally friendly and long-life results in lower total cost of ownershipContinuous painting and replacement is harmful to environment – could see door replacements every three years
Warrantied for 25 years against failure to corrosion, swelling, rotting, delamination or expansionStandard warranty for steel doors is one year and does not typically cover failure due to corrosive environments

Hygienic Hinged Doors

  • The hygienic hinged door is designed for use in non-fire rated areas.
  • FRP cleanroom doors maintain their structural integrity and will not corrode.
  • Smooth and seamless construction ensures there are no ledges or ridges to harbor bacteria.
  • The one-piece encapsulation makes the door 100% waterproof.
  • Available as single or pairs, and single or double swing.

  • Custom sizes and colors are available.

Hygienic Sliding Fire Doors

  • The sliding hygienic fire door has been designed for use where fire safety is a major concern.
  • Tested for fire resistance to UL10-C standards, these doors offer between 30 minutes and 120 minutes of fire resistance.
  • The fire doors have a concealed intumescent strip. The concealed intumescent strip reduces the surface area on which bacteria can gather. The intumescent strip is activated under heat; the strip will break through the surface of the door to create a fire seal.
  • The one-piece encapsulation makes the door 100% waterproof.
  • Dortek doors can be outfitted with a variety of automated activation devices from basic push button to fully integrated Building Management System.
  • Available in 20 colors in standard sizes ranging from 3 feet x 7 feet to 4 feet x 8 feet.
  • Custom sizes and colors are available.

Hermetically Sealing Sliding Doors

  • The hygienic hermetic sealing sliding doors are specified in areas where controlling differential pressure is critical.
  • A unique rail system allows the door to seal against the floor and wall at the very end of the closing cycle, giving reliable performance and minimum wear to the door seals.
  • Air leakage has been tested independently – 99% air-tight seal keeps the overpressure up to 100 Pa pressure without leakage.
  • The doors can be outfitted with a variety of automated activation devices from basic push button to fully integrated Building Management System.
  • Available in 20 colors in standard sizes ranging from 3 feet x 7 feet to 4 feet x 8 feet.
  • Custom sizes and colors are available.

Hermetically Sealing Sliding Glass Doors

  • The hermetically sealing sliding glass doors are specified in areas where control of air leakage and visibility is essential.
  • Glass doors optimize natural light, are contemporary in design and ideal for maximizing visibility in controlled environments.
  • Fully glazed with two sheets of 6mm toughened glass framed in an anodized aluminum profile.
  • Available as a single sliding or double leaf bi-parting.
  • The doors can be outfitted with a variety of automated activation devices from basic push button to fully integrated Building Management System.
  • A unique, patented track system enables the door to seal perfectly when closed, helping to reduce cross contamination and air-handling issues.
  • Air leakage has been tested independently – 99% air-tight seal keeps the overpressure up to 100 Pa pressure without leakage loss.
  • Available in standard sizes ranging from 31” x 31” to 59” x 90”.

Hygienic Windows

  • These hygienic windows are specifically designed for pharmaceutical and cleanroom environments.
  • They are designed using two panes of 6mm thick glass that is flush-fitted to a frame constructed from solid 316 or 304 stainless steel or FRP.
  • The windows are flush-fitted with both sides of the wall, eliminating any ledge or crevice that could harbor dirt or bacteria. This makes it easy to clean and wipe down the window.
  • No screws are used in order to maximize hygiene and cleanability.
  • Available with optional laser and radiation protection.
  • Available with smart glass (changes from transparent to opaque) and integral blinds for enhanced privacy.

Nergeco

Nergeco Cleanroom High-Speed Roll-Up Doors

Nergeco’s safe, high-speed flexible doors combine pressure resistance, full access for cleaning and a minimum opening time to reduce sanitary risks while enhancing sealing and asepsis. Developed in accordance with the rigorous constraints of pharmaceutical environments and the most corrosive atmospheres, the materials used for the frames and mechanisms of the high-speed flexible doors are made from multi-composite materials. The patented Intelligent curtain design provides a PVC door that allows “just in time” opening cycle.
Nergeo Door

Nergeco R Lab 5 Cleanroom Door:

  • The use of multi-composite structure significantly increases resistance to tearing, twisting and denting relative to weld-fabricated solutions. The material is smooth and wear-resistant, without the paint or crevices inherent in welded structures. The open, rounded shape is fully accessible for cleaning. Lastly, the multi-composite material is extremely corrosion-resistant, making it fully compliant with the requirements of clean environments.
  • Fully built in to the frame, the Nergeco Intelligent Curtain increases insulation and sealing without a complicated system trapping it in its slides.
  • The Intelligent Curtain opens at the last moment without friction (opening in up to 48 inches/second) and without posing a risk if touched. It then closes again at the same speed (twice as fast as traditional doors) without endangering users or packages. This reduces accidents and production stoppages. Also, by reducing the time it is open, it lowers energy consumption and the risks of airborne contamination by as much as 32% on each cycle.
  • If touched while a vehicle or individual is passing through, the Intelligent Curtain moves with the vehicle or individual horizontally without the least resistance; it directly registers this abnormal distortion and immediately retracts by itself above the obstacle. The Curtain re-inserts itself in its slides at the next cycle without any action needing to be taken if dislodged by a vehicle.
  • Enhanced sealing limits air leakage for room operating pressures up to 40Pa
  • Maximum size of 14 feet wide x 15 feet high
  • Available in 11 different curtain colors
  • Available with optional windows
  • Certified to ISO 6, Class 1000
