Explanation: dikke vandalen:
2 sluisdeur die in sponningen op en neer wordt bewogen; synoniem: schuifdeur, schotdeur
Technisch woordenboek Scheeps-, regel- en installatietechniek:
valdeur = vertical door (Frans: porte quillotine)
schuifdeur = sliding door (LEXICON SCHEEPVAART EN TRANSPORT IDEM)
verticale schuifdeur = vertical sliding door
waterdichte verticaal bewegende schuifdeur = water-tight vertical motion sliding door
waterdichte horizontaal bewegende schuifdeur = water-tight horizontal motion sliding door
schotdeur = bulkhead door (Frans: porte de cloison) (IS DUS GEEN SCHUIFDEUR VOLGENS MIJ)
this is the actual gate with which the water was held back; it fell from above, but I can't come up with a good word for it.
