Bird lady, I am a Master Composter, trained by Norfolk Council and I don't recollect seeing in the literature or at Garden Organic the type of bin that you describe. Which is not to say that they don't exist. My query is; why would you want a bin to open all the way down? Surely you would then end up with it all falling out, you could achieve this by tipping it over or lifting the bin up. My 2 bins have the little hatch near the base; I put on my knee pads, spread out a tarpaulin and dig the stuff out with the coal shovel, sieving as I go.
I appreciate that not everyone wants to spend 30 mins on their knees, so you could try the tip or lift methods mentioned above, though this would make a mess unless the bin is on a hard surface.
