A door specifically design for sport and fishing boats up to 90 feet has been developed by our team based on accurate study of spaces onboard and use of doors during cruising and other activities.
The final goal was to develop a product with the aesthetic of doors usually installed on larger yachts but with those features to address the needs of such sport and fishing boats.
The result is a light (less than 100 Kg) and thin door that in only 135 mm. comprises the electric automation system, the sliding track, drains and locking pins. In the manual version the overall thickness of the door can be reduce up to 100 mm.
This sort of miniaturization doesn’t affect the strength since the door is built in aluminum no less than 3 mm. Further our team was able to actually install on this door the same mechanic and automation we use on doors for larger yachts: the track on the top is the same extruded aluminum profile based on our original design and the set of rails moving on tracks in stainless steel 316 too.
The rails features our special arrangement which permits to adjust the height and angle of sliding parts thus have always a perfectly smooth run.
The automation system features various functionalities easy to set through the internal function selector: among this open and re-close, keep open, keep closed, manual function, night lock. Each function could be further set up by changing specific parameters.
The reason of using the same mechanic and automation is simple: install an oceangoing tested system to perform in rough seas and tough situations as those that sport boating passionate may encounter during their adventure.
The weathertightess is guaranteed trough two central bars placed in vertical between which the sliding part pass trough hanging on with the back side in closed position pushing the gasket and avoiding any leaking. On the front side at the edge between the sliding part and the frame a male-female layout permits to have the perfect fit tightening the door.
The door in its basic layout is a single sliding panel which move back and forward into its own frame: is possible to upgrade up to a double door with the two panels sliding opposite still moving inside the door frame and maintaining the same characteristics as described above.
Eventually such doors can be install also on larger yachts even over 90 feet on areas as lobby, side entrances where design pressure required remains under 15 kpa.
