    Revolving door to control store access?

    After reading many of these stories about mob's rushing into stores and robbing them I though back to the old revolving doors that used to be common in buildings. I do not know if there are reasons they are no longer in use but it seems it might be a good idea to bring them back. Its hard for a mob to rush in when only one person at a time can enter through the door.

    If there is an emergency where the building has to be evacuated quickly, large numbers of people trying to get through a revolving door creates chaos.

    The revolving doors I remember had emergency doors on either side that opened from the inside only. Revolving doors are difficult, if not impossible for people in wheel chairs, on crutches, or using walkers to navigate, and went the way of doorknobs in public buildings due to the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    No, revolving doors are not obsolete... they are still being made... bigger and automatic so that a wheelchair can go through...

    Many big stores are using them and at least one of the hospitals here has them for entry into the ER.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose
