Door Model 1430 with Escape Wheel Handle FREEMAN MARINE Quick-Acting doors feature patented chain-drive, single actuation dogging. This design feature allows for quick-acting doors with unique shapes, camber, knuckles and sloping surfaces. Also available on 1400 series doors is Freeman's Premium Pantograph Hinge.

Premium Duty, Quick-Acting doors are designed for transom access and other locations where watertight integrity is critical. A single piece neoprene or silicone gasket on the door panel's perimeter presses against a knife-edged jamb for a tight compression, uniformly tight seal. 

Standard commercial and machinery space doors often feature FREEMAN'S trademark lineal brushed finish that creates a durable, uniform texture.  When specified with optional yacht-quality paint to your color specifications, welded construction results in a smooth, seamless exterior that features long lasting beauty. Doors offer welded-in windows and can accommodate special glazing. 

1430 Series Quick-Acting Premium Duty doors are specified where aggressive sealing is required:


** Degree of watertightness depends on number of dogs, proper installation and sealing adjustment. Watertight doors are individually defined, specified and fabricated for each application.
