Blast doors on a Trade Federation starship

A blast door was a type of secured door that was used in numerous types of facilities, including military installations and starships.

When the Trade Federation blockaded the planet Naboo, blast doors were used aboard their Droid Control Ships.

During the Clone Wars, the Rishi Station on the Rishi moon had blast doors that were infiltrated by the Separatist Alliance in a short battle.

On a massive space station known as the Death Star—during the reign of the Galactic Empire—blast doors were used to secure the station's hangar bays.
