Springfield Glass Company can help you choose the best style of shower glass door and enclosure that’s right for your bathroom. We’ll consult with you on the thickness of the glass, the shape of the enclosure, how the door opens, and how the new shower glass fits into your existing or remodeled bathroom.
In today’s blog from Springfield Glass Company, we highlight the styles of glass shower doors available to you.
Framed Shower Doors
Framed shower doors have frames that support the doors because they’re made of thinner glass. The metal frame, constructed of aluminum, may swing open or slide on a track. The glass is sealed into the frame to prevent leaks.
Frameless Shower Doors
Frameless shower doors have thicker glass, which creates a sleeker look. Frameless glass shower doors also make your bathroom appear bigger because the sightlines are unimpeded with opaque metal accents. Frameless shower doors open more easily, and you have more freedom for design choices because of the lack of a frame. This style of glass shower door has a rubber stop on the bottom to prevent water leaks.
Bi-Fold Glass Shower Door
This style of glass shower door is great for a smaller bathroom with limited space. Bi-fold glass shower doors are perfect for corner bathrooms because panels fold inside the shower off to one side. This happens thanks to a pivot point off to one side of the shower. The other panel of the glass shower door runs along a track inside a metal frame.
Curved Glass Shower Door
Curved glass shower doors represent the epitome of class. They also open up your shower while giving your bathroom a larger space to work with. Curved doors usually have a frame at the top and bottom to support the curvature of the glass.
Neo Angle Glass Shower Door
A neo angle glass shower door has a diamond shape, and it works well for corner bathrooms. One angle is at the opposite end of the far corner of your shower, and it forms a flat panel presented to the rest of the bathroom. This flat panel is usually where the door sits. The door swings outward into the rest of the room.
