Steecon Offers Swinging Door
Steecon Enterprises has developed a bulkhead swinging door. The door is hinged at the top and bottom, and the door frame houses the motorized activation assembly. The door is activated by the push of a button (on the floor or door frame), remains open long enough for the user to pass through and then closes automatically. A resistance disengage switch ensures that the user cannot be trapped when the door closes. With minimal pressure, the door can easily be opened manually, eliminating the need for a break-away panel in the case of a sudden loss in cabin pressure.
