  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Doors 
  moved  on  pivots  of  wood  fastened  in  sockets  above  and  below 
  (Prov.  26:14).  They  were  fastened  by  a  lock  (Judg.  3:23,  25; 
  Cant.  5:5)  or  by  a  bar  (Judg.  16:3;  Job  38:10).  In  the  interior 
  of  Oriental  houses,  curtains  were  frequently  used  instead  of 
  doors. 
 
  The  entrances  of  the  tabernacle  had  curtains  (Ex.  26:31-33, 
  36).  The  "valley  of  Achor"  is  called  a  "door  of  hope,"  because 
  immediately  after  the  execution  of  Achan  the  Lord  said  to 
  Joshua,  "Fear  not,"  and  from  that  time  Joshua  went  forward  in  a 
  career  of  uninterrupted  conquest.  Paul  speaks  of  a  "door  opened" 
  for  the  spread  of  the  gospel  (1  Cor.  16:9;  2  Cor.  2:12;  Col. 
  4:3).  Our  Lord  says  of  himself,  "I  am  the  door"  (John  10:9). 
  John  (Rev.  4:1)  speaks  of  a  "door  opened  in  heaven."
