This specification covers the principal shapes and dimensions, and mechanical requirements for the manufacture of two types of individually dogged watertight, gastight/airtight, and weathertight doors of steel, aluminum, and glass-reinforced plastic construction.

The doors shall be classified into groups according to their area of application, as follow: Group Awatertight doors in the bridge front bulkhead and the unprotected bulkhead of deckhouses/superstructures, and deckhouses that enclose machinery openings; Group Bwatertight doors in the deckhouse bulkheads partially protected or in the bulkhead of deckhouses/superstructures, and not around machinery openings, watertight and airtight doors below weather deck; Group Cairtight /gastight doors in the aft end bulkhead of the bridge, forecastle, and deckhouses at the weather deck level; and Group Dweathertight doors in the deckhouse above the weather deck level. All doors shall be certified for applicable tightness integrity prior to delivery.
