Fold-up doors for shipyards and ports

Durable, lightweight doors with an innovative lift mechanism
The lightweight Champion Doors do not require heavy support structures. In addition, due to their innovative lift mechanism, the doors do not need tracks on the floor or large frames. These features significantly reduce hangar construction costs.

The doors can be manufactured in any size, and are available in all wind classes. They are tailor-made according to customer needs and can be delivered and installed as a turnkey project.
