Alba, Aurora, and Calipso are Exit Carbon models in the 2+ meters size class, 216 cm and 220 cm long and 39 cm wide: with our exclusive manufacturing technology they are the lightest gangways on the market in their class.
All three gangways share the same smoothly rounded planform and the same cambered profile, to be easily used on piers which are higher than the deck level. They are autoclave cured, pre-preg carbon fiber sandwich structures, so they are light, but also stronger and stiffer than competitors. All of them are tested to 500 kg static load.
Alba 220 is the lightest of the three, and it’s our only solid, or not folding, model. It’s also our only gangway which cannot be equipped with handrails. Alba 220 will bend about 2.5 cm for each 100 kg of weight, and weighs about 4.4 kg.
Calipso 216 has beautifully engineered hinges for folding, which can be locked in the open position with sliding anti-folding restraints. It also has our newest kind of handrail system, with clip-on stanchions. Calipso 216 will bend about 1.5 cm for each 100 kg of weight, and weighs about 6.5 kg.
Aurora 216 is our evergreen gangway, with a super stiff, high inertia, carbon fiber shell structure, which also integrates its exclusive carbon hinges. Aurora 216 was engineered to reach the absolute maximum stiffness with minimum weight, to assure a walking comfort and safety feeling similar to what you’d have on a floating pier. With a weight lower than your average grocery bag, Aurora 216 will bend only an astonishing 0.7 cm for each 100 kg of weight, and weighs about 5.6 kg.
