u/Onbenoemd Jan 22 '22

u/Timbo_007 Jan 22 '22

It goes even deeper. The Door is opening outwards, meaning that if someone opens the door while you sit on the can, the roll will become out of reach for you

22

u/jontaffarsghost Jan 22 '22

But if you hold the paper and someone pulls the door, they’ll unspool the toilet paper for you which is pretty nice.

The door appears to open out, not the lack of hinges on this side of the door.

u/_dock_ Jan 22 '22

It always does in the toilet as 1) there's a toilet in the way if it goes in and 2) it's safer in case of emergencies. Doors always open towards an exit

And it isn't centred

Might be centered to the toilet, can't quite tell

24

u/TaliesinMerlin Jan 22 '22

The door opens outward, too, which means someone could block you in and you'd have no way to take the hinges off.

u/tbucket Jan 22 '22

and they can open the door and you can't force push it closed

11

u/YourLocal_FBI_Agent Jan 22 '22

In that case you'd have to resort to force pull and bring it back in

u/SemiAwkwardFella Jan 22 '22

So the door opens outwards?

66

u/buak Jan 22 '22 edited Jan 22 '22

Yes, most bathroom doors here open outwards.

edit: Also, every front door here in every house opens outwards.

24

u/Rokee44 Jan 22 '22

Front doors!? Commerical exits here are required to be outward swinging for fire/emergency egress, but there are a bunch of protocols and maintenance that goes along with that.

Residential it seems kind of whack, but definitely can see how it could offer space savings. Do these places typically have enclosed/covered porches? Here in Canada it would be a terrible idea. There would need to be a daily town service in the winter to dig out all the people stuck in their homes after every minor snowfall and a bit of freezing.

That said... I like it. Built in social conditioning. Keeps nosey neighbors and pushy people a step back. Don't respect my space or invitation when coming up to my home? Get clonked with a solid oak door. Lol that'll learn 'em. Here it's just rude to crowd a doorway, whereever you are it must be like personal health and safety thing haha

16

u/buak Jan 22 '22

In Finland the front doors must open outwards because of safety: in case of fire or other emergency the door must open so that it’s easy to exit the building.

In the 1700s and 1800s there were several fires in the churches and people got stuck because the doors opened inwards. That caused that the regulations were given that the doors in the churches must open outwards. That regulation was later taken in practice in all buildings.

4

u/pittstop33 Jan 22 '22

I visited Finland several years back for a work trip. Our office in Espoo (you can probably guess where I work) was constantly confusing me because every door I approached I expected to open the opposite direction than how it actually opened. There aren't the same hints we're used to (In the US at least) like the push bar on the push side and handle on the pull side.

1

u/Rokee44 Jan 22 '22 edited Jan 22 '22

Yeah we have the same codes for commerical. Makes sense when an emergency might result in a large number of people heading toward a doorway. It also just makes more sense the way a business operates to have outward swinging doors. But there are other building codes and commerical operation requirements that makes it work. Things like barrier free design, transparent doors, high quality hardware, building upkeep etc. Residential doesn't have as much of this, which I'd have to think would result in a lot more safety hazards than the one fire egress scenario. A few family members exiting their home and a large mass (pun intended) of people in a public building are entirely different situations with different hazards.

What happens after a heavy snowfall, ya just climb out the windows? Lol sounds fun but hardly practical. I know Scandinavians are courteous and all, but I can't help but picture couriers leaving packages at the door, then getting knocked over or wedged in the door when you go to open it.

2

u/AquaWolfGuy Jan 23 '22

The outer doors usually have a roof over them if they're not connected to a sidewalk, and the door is usually a bit higher than the ground. Home delivery for packages isn't so common, but they'll usually ring the doorbell and see if you're home, otherwise leave it next to the door. Of course you don't stand or put things right in front of it.

u/Beta_Ray_Bill Jan 22 '22

Was just thinking this. Every bathroom I can remember opens inward. But maybe the little radiator has something to do with this?

3

u/xclame Jan 22 '22 edited Jan 23 '22

If the door opens inward you limit what can be put in it or the bathroom needs to be bigger. Here for example we have a sink in the tiny bathroom, if the doors opened inward there would be no way the sink could fit.

u/GrimGrimGrimGrim Jan 22 '22

I've never really seen a bathroom door open inwards, I guess the standard is different where you live

That's true on the camera part. I wanted to show the whole picture. Not the legs part that much. I tried to use google pixel's magic eraser to remove them from the image but that didn't work very well, so I thought fuck it, who cares.

3

u/TryonB Jan 22 '22

LOL, it's all good. I mean, you didn't need to go all Google magic, a simple crop would have shown just the TP holder. But the original, legs and all, tells a more complete story because it shows it's meant to face you while you masturb...I mean do your business.

That looks like it'd wreak havoc with getting into and out of the toilet. The roll holder is fucking huge and positioned right next to the hinges. How far does the door actually open?

Edit: I take it back, for some bizarre reason the toilet door appears to open outwards. So I guess just try not to bean anyone as you exit the toilet?

for those who do use your phone in the bathroom, I hope you have a rule, once you start wiping, you no longer touch your phone till you've washed your hands...freaks me out how unclean some people and how people don't care. Public toilets are clearly the worse, you have someone who wipes but doesn't care how clean they are, gets any of it their hands, gotta pull their trousers back up with that dirty hand, flush, open the door, might not even wash their hands.

The faucet knob has certainly had poop on it, so after you were done and went to wash your hands you got poop on it, then you washed your hands and then put your clean hands back on the poopy knob and got your hands poppy again.

The door handle is also covered in poop because of all the poopy hands after turning the knob to shut the water off.
