A door is a dynamic structure designed to restrict or permit access to an entrance within an enclosed space, such as a building or vehicle. While similar exterior structures are referred to as gates, doors typically have an interior side facing inside a space and an exterior side facing the outside. This dichotomy can either present a uniform appearance or show stark contrasts, as in the case of a vehicle door.
Doors usually comprise a panel that swings on hinges or slides or spins within its frame. When open, they allow the passage of people, animals, ventilation, or light. They play a crucial role in controlling the physical atmosphere within a space by limiting air drafts, thereby aiding in more efficient heating or cooling.
In addition to providing fire resistance, doors act as noise barriers. Many are equipped with lock mechanisms to selectively allow entrance. They also enhance aesthetics by separating formal and utility areas. Beyond their practical function, doors symbolize courtesy, civility, and often attain ritual significance, with the exchange of keys or granting access carrying special meaning.
