Bow doors

Seanet Group offers a wide range of equipment designed to meet the demands of maritime safety for vessels requiring bow access.

Bow doors may have different arrangements:

  • vertical opening bow door
  • horizontal opening bow door

In both cases, doors are linked to the hull structure by means of hinged arms, connected to the manoeuvring cylinders

They are made by a steel structure specifically designed to maintain the structural integrity of the ship and a hydraulic operating system to perform opening and closing operations.

The doors are custom designed based on the ship's hull shape according to customer and registry requirements. Vertical opening doors are best suited for ro-ro ships, while horizontal opening doors are for naval vessel (LST - Landing Ship for Tanks) which must not interfere with frontal weapons of the ship.

Bow door can be supplied together a bow ramp which can be foldable.
