Bulkhead doors

Access doors or flood prevention doors. A wide variety of designs and configurations are available: side-hinged door, sliding door, upward rolling door, and top-hinged door. In any case a door can be of a single or multi-panel type. There are three basic ways of operating bulkhead doors; by swinging on hinges, by sliding on guiding wheels and frames or by rolling up into stowage position.
