If you had posted your location, that could narrow down the guesses.

@ concretemasonry: I am located in the USA, west coast.

@Windows on Wash: I dunno what to tell you, all these links work fine on my computer as does the inline image in the post. I found some more examples though.

Here are some more links:

Well, we do not see one in your post. Instead of posting links, which can lead people to malware laden sites, post pictures of what you are talking about instead. I for one am not going to go to some website that someone posts on a forum, without knowing what lays behind the link.

Well, I can see the pic in the OP on my iPhone.

Have no idea what the door is called, but it looks really cool!

The original post was a posted picture using the forum button for inline pictures. I only added links because some people are having problems seeing the inline images for whatever reason.

Just so you know direct links to images like the ones I posted, where it ends in .jpg .jpeg .png .gif and so on will almost never ever ever be malware or virus laden because they are direct links to image files and image files cant contain exploits or malware.

I have added some more inline images to see if it was just a error with displaying that first image on some computers.

You see them all the time at hotels, and other places of business, that use a vestibule with at least four panels. Ikea has them when you enter the place of business.

When used in panels of four, they can keep inside air in, outside air out, and be setup for security, that they will lock down to keep people from entering. As for the single unit system, more of a architectural feature, than anything else. You need enough space equal to the width of each panel, or the single panel itself, to allow for rotation.

These are not new, nor European. They have been around for Centuries. The hardest part is getting the center of balance correct, so that they rotate easily and with minimal effort, especially if used for hiding private rooms behind bookcases or false wall panels.
