Possible Designs

  • Folding Doors
    One possible design is to use doors that fold horizontally. These doors will lay flat on the canal and allow the user to float over them. This design will use 'living hinges' which are made out of a plastic polymer. A living hing will be water proof, and become stronger the more that it is used.

  • Swinging Doors
    Another possible design is to use doors that swing open. This particular design will have two half doors on each side of the lock. When the doors are closed, they will be in a 'V' shape to ensure a tight seal. This is a very common lock design.
