Custom Sliding Shower And Bathtub Doors

Types of Custom Sliding Bathtub & Shower Doors
When shopping for a shower door, many homeowners have difficulty choosing between a hinged shower door or a sliding shower door. One major characteristic of the sliding glass shower door is that it is functional for small compact bathrooms. Since the doors do not open outward or inward, they take up less space. Sliding shower doors are perfect for bathrooms that have sinks, toilets or other obstacles right next to the shower door. Like standard shower doors, sliding shower doors can be customized by glass tint, thickness, and hardware finish. Another promising feature of the sliding glass shower is the modern frameless glass panels. Unlike older sliding glass doors, the trackless glass doors have no frames, which means less cleaning and maintenance for you. When you add Clearshield glass protector, your shower doors will be protected from hard water and soap scum deposits.
Depending on your personal taste and the bathroom layout, there are multiple sliding bathtub doors to choose from. Each door is customizable to fit your specific needs.
Semi-Frameless Sliding Bathtub & Shower Doors
The Linear sliding bathtub doors are bypass doors, which means that both glass panels are moveable for extra functionality. The Single frame that rests on the top is composed of stainless steel that won’t rust from moisture. The glass panels are tempered for added durability and safety.
Metro Sliding Bathtub & Shower Doors
This bathtub sliding door is frameless and is guided by a rounded metal track. Due to its high quality, the sliding glass doors are smooth and quiet when opened. The hardware is customizable. You can choose chrome for a contemporary look or oil rubbed bronze for a traditional high-end look. This sliding bathtub door can instantly upgrade the look of your bathroom.
Quadro Sliding Bathtub & Shower Doors
Similar to the Metro, the Quadro is a versatile sliding glass door that can be installed over a bathtub or shower and can also be arranged to fit other configurations with added custom glass panels. The rectangular header looks sleek and modern. The high-quality tempered glass panel comes with a tracking system that is ultra-quiet and glides smoothly. For sliding glass shower doors, a bottom track is included with a 1/4" slope to guide water to the shower drain.
