Revolving Platform Door



Invented by Klemens Torggler in 1997.

From Wikipedia:


The revolving platform door is a door made of two door leaf parts supported on one another and rotatably coupled to one another.

For opening and closing, both door leaf parts swing out in synchrony in opposite directions in a horizontal rotation through 90°, into the passage or out.


The revolving platform door, like a cycloid, moves in the same opening direction as a sliding door but does not require a guide rail.

Rails can often be disruptive, especially when retrofitting.

The advantages of this door, primarily designed for interiors, are its special ease of movement and low space requirement.
