Abstract: There is disclosed an emergency door positionable in an exit opening of an aircraft. The door has door supports mountable to the lower wall and each having a pivot point. A first pivot axis is defined between the pivot points. A block is mountable to the lower wall and is offset from a center of the lower wall. A door body is mountable within the opening to the door supporting structure and pivotally mountable to the door supports. The door body is pivotable about the first pivot axis from an initial position in which the door body is within the opening, until the door body is disengaged from the door supports.

Abstract: A spreading device is disclosed for spreading vehicles for discharging spreading agents. The spreading device includes at least one tank for receiving liquid spreading agents to be spread and at least one rotationally-driven discharge device, connected via a provided supply unit to the tank. The discharge device has at least one base body and one cover securely connected to the base body, wherein the base body defines a receiving chamber (AR) for the supplied liquid spreading agent and is in the shape of a cylinder. The base body has at least one bottom section, forming an underside (U) of the discharge device, with an inlet opening and at least one wall section projecting from the bottom section and concentrically surrounding an axis of rotation (RA). The discharge device has multiple discharge units, each having a discharge opening, for dispensing the liquid spreading agent from the receiving chamber (AR).
