PuraTouchLaminated and Encapsulated Doorsets

Laminated and Encapsulated Doorsets A comprehensive array of protective facings in smooth and textured finishes in a variety of colours providing excellent protection to impact and hygiene performance.


High pressure laminates are available in a large range of colours and effects and are used in any type of building where key colour coordination, smooth surfaces and low maintenance are required, offering a very good level of resistance to impact and therefor increasing longevity and the great appearance of our laminated doors.

Dorplan offer doors faces with the full range of Formica, Polyrey and Egger laminates or other laminates of your choice.

Laminated doors are supplied with either exposed or concealed lipping detail.

Vision panel beadings are made of hardwood and supplied in an appropriate species to compliment the lipping.

Encapsulated Doorsets

Postformed doors are widely used in Healthcare, Laboratories, Education and Retail sectors, and where the maintenance of sterile hygiene conditions is critical. Fully encapsulated doors and frames provide excellent resistance to anti-microbial impregnation. This material is UV stable and PVC free which eliminates the risk that the toxic fumes PVC gives off when burning.

Doors can be faced full height or part way up with contrasting finishes to other exposed areas of the door faces.

Vision panel beading is covered with the same protection to complete the coverage in the protective material.

Frames are generally encapsulated to provide the continuity of protection in respect of both impact protection and hygiene performance.

Other products such as wall sheet, handrails, corner and edge guards are available to complete the protection package requirements in a coordinated manner.

PuraTouch Doorsets

The benefits that having doors pre-hung in frames with relevant hardware morticing works carried out in the factory is increasingly seen as the obvious solution to the demands on contractors. This reduces the labour force required on site, the level of skill required to install, the management resources required to oversee and the installation time required on site. This all helps in projects where programmes are tight and excellence of carpentry works is borne by CNC machinery in the factory which take the onus of responsibility from site level to production level.

Servicing items available:

  • Hinges- all types including concealed Tectus and Soss hinges
  • Floor springs and pivot accessories
  • Concealed jamb and overhead door closers
  • Flush bolts
  • Mortice locks, latches, and card access control lockcases
  • Multipoint security entrance door locks, letter plates and door viewers
  • Sliding door recesses, flush handle recesses
  • Fire and acoustic integrity seals.

Doors can be delivered in their frames for simple quick installation or as often required, frames can be delivered ahead of doors so surrounding trades can continue, doors are delivered later and fixed into the prepared frames reducing the risk of damage to doors by arriving late on in the project.

The balance of ironmongery where not installed to the doors is packed according to schedules in doorsets boxes , labelled and delivered to site for easy access and installation by the carpentry team.

Door Construction

PuraTouch cores are available in either 3 layer particle board or solid timber laminated construction.


To cover and protect the door core material, edges are applied with a hardwood lipping, which is usually 7mm thick. There are two main types of lippings known as concealed or exposed:

‘Concealed’ – The more general detail in edge lipping doors. The door core is cut and the lipping is fixed by high pressure bonding. The door facings are then applied concealing the edges of lipping’s

‘Exposed’ – This option is often used where corners of doors maybe subjected to more impact and therefore chances of damage are reduced or where an alternative finish can be used to create a visual contrast.
