For small bathrooms with close quarters, a swinging shower door may not be conducive to the space. When the toilet or counters are close to the entry of the shower, a sliding glass door is a convenient and attractive option. Take a look at the different kinds of sliding shower doors we have installed.
Sliding shower doors are designed to be installed on the shower pan or tile apron and generally include two panels of glass that both slide from right to left allowing access to the showering area from either side. Sliding shower doors are taller than sliding tub doors and afford easier access because you don’t have to step over the tub apron to enter the shower.
Sliding shower doors use a roller system that is attached to the glass and rides in a top track and utilizes a bottom track to keep the doors aligned and tracking in good order. Side jambs are also often included to keep water from escaping around the closed door. These side jambs can also include bumpers that prevent the doors from slamming and keep the doors closed during use. The top track, bottom track and side jambs are generally made from anodized aluminum to prevent corrosion.
