The outward swinging plug door uses rotary motion to swing the door wings out from the door aperture to the sides of the vehicle.

A parallel link arm ensures that the door wings stay parallel to the vehicle side during this movement keeping the maximum door out swing to approximately 250mm. This style of door is typically used as an exit door but can also be fitted at the entrance. They are available in double and single wing versions with pneumatic or electrical drive. Both drive arrangements are available with fail-safe systems to prevent the door from opening in the event of a loss of pneumatic pressure or electrical power. The double wing door can be supplied with synchronous or independent door wing operation to suit all applications.
