Circular Rolling Door

Do I need a summary?
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

For reasons beyond my comprehension, nearly every circular door in existence uses hinges. This idea is to put the door on/in a track, and roll it out of the way of the doorway.

Making such a door easy to open and close is a bit tricky, but this *is* the halfbakery.

I say "nearly every," because google found precisely one rolling door, [link], but it's not precisely a widely known to exist architectural feature.

       bigsleep, you mean that if I posted an idea about an dilating door, it wouldn't get marked as WTCTTISITMWIBNIIWR, or something similar?

       For a halfbaked version, the door you seek is used in airlocks on Deep Space 9.

       too much like a revolving door?
travbm, Oct 29 2015

       Not anything at all like a revolving door, [travbm]. Try reading for comprehension this time.

       You may look into ultrasonic levetation and magnetic levitation. The circular door has a hole that seals up one way and closes another as it rotates.

       [pash], for some reason your Wikipedia linked page comes out upside-down and back-to-front on my screen.

       Must be the Australian localisation.
