RFC phase now open!

My primary intend for to propose a simple tag for describing the mechanism of the door for persons with reduced mobility. - Species 10:37, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Someone pointed out there was a rejected proposal some time ago: entrance/door - new working draft 2.0 here.


I understand that the type of door handle (knob versus lever particularly) can significantly affect accessibility (at least for Brown Bears :-)). SK53 (talk) 17:09, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Discussion from Tagging-ML

This proposal should be bigger with more door properties specified.

  • handles
  • The number of wings
  • opens to the left or to the right
  • opens inward, outward or both
  • door_closer = * - door_opener distinguish if the door opens and/or closes automatically


  • better specify automatic_door (opening, closing)

open questions

  • Unify door=related values under the "door:*" domain? Especially change automatic_door to door:automatic?


  • remove dependencies of
    • entrance implies door=?
    • automatic_door -OK
  • add opening direction: e.g. door:opening=inside/outside/both
  • add handle type, e.g. door:handle=knob/lever/crash_bar/ring/hole
  • add number of wings e.g. door:wings=n (defaults to 1)
  • add opending direction: e.g. door:opening_direction=left/right

add the following door types (as they are already used according to taginfo?

  • overhead (garage door)
  • loadingdock


I missing a "Roll-up door" and a "grated door"! In German: Ich vermisse ein "Rolltor" (z.B. bei Tiefgarageneinfahrten) und ganz wichtig: "Gittertüren" (Eisengitter, Stahlgitter etc). z.B. bei Kirchen, Friedhöfen, Keller Eingängen. Gittertüren werden gebraucht beim Proposal "man_made=cellar_entrance". Danke. RoGer6 (talk) 19:08, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

The "roll-up door" (garage door) is added, door=overhead is considered for this
Most "grated" doors are actually hinged doors. Maybe use a subkey like material=* for this? Species 18:44, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
