Scandanavian doors

Recommended Posts

I've watched were quite a few of the Scandinavian police series on Bbc3 and I'm always intrigued as to why majority of the front doors to houses and flats open to the outside rather than into the house as ours do, any ideas why, maybe seal better in snowy windy conditions? Anyone have a definitive answer?

In Canada it's all outward opening doors, it's to do with fires, if a building is full of smoke and you can't see to get out then you walk with your hands in front of you and push against anything that's a barrier, even more so if you have people behind you.
