“Providing critical protection against flooding due to collision or grounding, our watertight doors are designed specifically to clamp tightly and promote excellent flood containment”
Watertight Doors are special types of doors found on the ships which prevent the ingress of water from one compartment to another during flooding or accidents.
These doors are used onboard in areas where the chances of flooding are high. Typical areas such as engine room compartments and shaft tunnels are places onboard which require protection.
Watertight doors are a vital ship component as their performance impacts greatly on the watertight integrity of the vessel in cases where flooding has been caused by hull damage due to some form of collision.
Flood containment is critical, not only due to the dangers this presents to personnel onboard but also to the sailing stability of the ship itself.
Such importance is borne out by marine regulations which stipulate that the number of watertight door openings during sailing should be kept to an absolute minimum.
