frameless shower CONFIGURATIONS

Frameless shower enclosures are valued for their luxurious, spa-like feel. For a frameless shower, we use 3/8" or 1/2" thick glass, which provides necessary support without the addition of framed metal.

One of our most popular configurations is a door positioned next to a panel.

Our doors are typically attached with high quality Vienna hinges.

Panels can be attached with either clips, as shown here, or with a thin metal channel. Both are equally functional, the choice is mainly an aesthetic one.

We can even install frameless showers on tubs.

Handles come in a variety of styles, with a 6" D pull being our standard - like the one on the left.

In small bathrooms where space is at a premium, we are also able to mount towel bars directly to the glass, melding form and function.

Another popular enclosure we install is a door with panels set at a 90 degree angle.

This particular enclosure has panels attached with metal channel instead of the clips from above.

Occasionally a header is needed to keep the glass panels stabilized. Size, hinge side and other factors may make this required.

This particular shower enclosure uses Cardiff pivot hinges, which can hook directly into the header and the tile or marble at the base of the enclosure, giving a clean expanse of glass down the middle.

Notched glass, as shown on the left, can be tricky, but we feel confident working around your beautiful tile and marble to create a flawless look.

Neo angle showers typically contain angles over 90 degrees, and can create the illusion of openness in a smaller space.

When a door is hinged off a glass panel, a header or other stabilizing method is required to keep the panel from flexing and torquing when the door opens. Here, we have used a chrome header to stabilize the enclosure.
