Specifier Review

Vicaima reaches greater heights in hotels interiors

Vicaima’s outstanding Portaro complete door system now has even more design and performance features which makes this already unrivalled door solution an exciting prospect for hotel interior designers and specifiers.

Portaro provides the perfect partnership between door, frame and architrave, providing fully finished door, frame, architrave and ironmongery together in one single system, thus opening up numerous possibilities of interior applications, whilst offering assured on-site cost savings and guaranteed reductions in fitting time.


This high performance system can now be supplied to a height of 2350mm to give full floor to ceiling height.  The resulting look of a floor to ceiling door is dramatic and beautiful, and this statement can be further enhanced by seamlessly integrating the door – using invisible hinges – into full wall-width panels, to give a stunning  contemporary ‘panoramic’ look.  If fire protection is required, these doors can be supplied as FD30 certified, and FD60 certified.

The range of finishes has also been extended to give probably the most extensive number of options available anywhere.  In addition to an already wide range of fully finished paint, stained veneer, laminate, foil, grooved face and inlay options, designers now have a total colour spectrum at their command as the Portaro door system can be Pantone matched to specification reference.  This offers unlimited design potential where precise colour matching – perhaps with interior soft furnishings or wall coverings – is required, or a key complement or statement colour is needed.

Portaro is truly one of the most adaptable door systems on the market, giving designers and contractors great flexibility whilst providing fitting and performance assurance.  Different door opening methods are available in Portaro, such as sliding, inverse or pivotal, together with excellent performance options of fire, acoustic and security if required.
