Megadoor for Shipyards and Boatyards

Dry dock doors at shipyards and boatyards can go months without being opened. But they must withstand coastal weather and climate conditions and, when they are opened, they must function flawlessly and allow maximum clearance for the vessels they shelter.

Megadoor has supplied dry dock door solutions to ship and boat builders worldwide since 1983. Megadoor solutions are preferred because they:

  • Are highly reliable – you can rely on the door to work and not disrupt operation.
  • Require no bottom rails.
  • Withstand high wind loads.
  • Take less space in the building, do not ‘steal’ space from production, and are cost-effective in operation.
  • Provide a tight seal when closed, promoting a comfortable work environment and saving energy.
  • Create a good working environment – the translucent curtain lets in more light.
