Whilst on holiday recently, we visited a Bamboo Park. While this may not sound like the most exciting day out, it was a really nice place to visit and there were many types of bamboo plants, as well as a lovely Japanese garden. As we reached the end of the park there was a one-way door. You will be familiar with the sort. This is the kind of exit you often find at amusement parks or visiting sites. You can only push the barrier door to exit and there is no way back. Given my interest in doors, I had to take a closer look at this door mechanism.
I have to say, I am not a fan of these types of doors. I found it very impersonal to leave by a one-way door. I would have preferred a wave goodbye from a person and a “Thank you for visiting”. Maybe that’s just me. I also did not like the finality of the exit. Once you've reached this door it signifies your final opportunity to decide that you are leaving the park. In fact, during our visit to the park, we had asked whether we could leave and return as there was more to see than we had expected and there were no refreshment facilities within the park, however we were met with a very cold response as we were told that this was strictly forbidden. We had to leave by the one-way door and would have to pay again at the entrance if we wanted to return to the park.
At Doorsan we have a wide range of timber doors. However, all our doors are designed to be used as the standard two-way variety, though with different hinges they can work one way. In addition, you can visit us time and again (at no charge) via our website or showroom to make sure you have seen all our timber doors and related products and discuss your options with our sales team.
