This is the last custom design and manufactured electric powered solution to access to the sundeck of a recently launched 48 meter superyacht, entering into our wide range of automated products made to satisfy similar needs.
Built in aluminum with details in stainless steel has been carefully studied to achieve four main goals: resist to high load and pressure according LR rules for the class (MCA-LY3), be enough strong to permit crew and guests onboard to walk on it without any risk, maximize the clear opening, be light to maintain the overall yacht weight under the 500 GT and so not affect the overall top speed.
The hinged companionway is moved by two electric actuators made invisible in close position thanks the recessed made on the frame while leaving completely clear the passage in open position up to 90°.
During the design, FEM analysis and different simulation in hard conditions have been made to assess the right dimensional attributes and construction procedures according the 4 main goals listed above.
The system features a lock command which inhibits the operation both in close and open position up. The solution is equipped with a manual release to operate it in case of power failure.
