The Model 320/325 companionway door is elegant in design yet rugged and durable. It is an ideal entry door for express-style boats or cockpit engine room door for larger yachts. The aluminum construction and stainless steel hardware are suitable for the marine environment where a solid weathertight door is required. The front door can be left or right-handed, with various window options. The pop-up hatch may be either single panel (Mod. 320) or bi-fold (Mod. 325). An optional interior clamp ring can be used for easy installation into any bulkhead.
The 1 5/16" thick door is a sandwich construction of aluminum doorskins which are bonded to heavy rectangular stiles with methacrylate adhesive. The internal cavities are filled with polymer core to provide exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation. The resulting door is lightweight and very rigid. The heavy hollow door frame design helps prevent distortion during installation, and serves to channel any water entering alongside the upper hatch panels or via the latch holes to the drain slots at the bottom. The fully welded frame thus minimizes water intrusion into the boat.
