Blast doors on a Trade Federation starship

A blast door was a type of secured door[1] 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.[2]

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.[3]

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.[1]
