  • a self-locking system to avoid the rotation on the horizontal plane;
  • an automatic system to open the gangway
The other types of gangway supplied by FEMstrutture are showed on the left.

  • System to join and lock automatically the gangway at the rotation respect the vertical axis:
    • When the gangway moves down toward the dock, this system locks automatically the horizontal rotation in the position chosen . The descent is not instable.
    • Furthermore this locking system implies two advantages:
      • The gangway does not need of tie rods when is open;
      • the locking system has also a valence of anti-theft.
