Glass Shower Doors
There are numerous types of glass shower doors out there on the market today. They range from single doors, double doors, and panel/door combinations. These doors are installed on metal frames and allow for a clear, frosted, or any type of glass you would like installed.
Frameless Glass Shower Doors
A frameless shower door is a type of shower door that has a threshold without a frame. The door is typically made of a single piece of glass that is mounted to the wall and sealed to the floor. Frameless doors are often used in shower stalls and in shower enclosures. The first frameless shower door was patented in 1963 and manufactured by the Clopay Corporation.
Glass Shower Sliders
These framed or frameless glass shower doors sit on sliders. They are slide doors that sit on tracks and are installed so they can slide horizontally.
Glass Shower Enclosures
A glass shower enclosure is a beautiful piece to accent any bathroom and can add a feeling of openness and space to any bathroom. Glass shower enclosures are doors or walls that surround a shower. They are often made of tempered glass and provide a large amount of privacy
