    Since Jansen is a real-life manufacturer of doors, it may be hard to research this. :) – Ross Presser Nov 16 '16 at 18:51
  • In Gene Wolfe's There are Doors the protagonist steps through into an alternate universe dominated by women. – Spencer Nov 16 '16 at 23:13
  • Very loose match with Harry Harrison's One Step From Earth. – SQB Nov 17 '16 at 18:39
