About Class II & Class III Sliding Watertight Doors
Watertight doors consist of (3) three Classes:
- Class I - Doors that are hinged and dogged. (USA does not supply this Class Door).
- Class II - Sliding Doors that are operable from both sides of the bulkhead by hand hydraulics. Remote actuation with hand hydraulics is included when required.
- Class III - Sliding Doors are operable both locally and remotely by hand and electro-hydraulics.
ALUMINUM SLIDING WATERTIGHT DOORS
USA supplies aluminum sliding watertight doors. These can be ordered to any size and can be either hand hydraulic or electro hydraulic operated. These doors are special for Aluminum and Wood vessels. The doors are bolted to the bulkhead and we supply a drill template to make the installation friendlier. If you have an aluminum vessel, and desire a lightweight superior watertight door, give us a call.
