Folding Shower Door
Glass doors make the separation of a shower stall seem less visible, making the room seem larger and less cluttered. Glass shower doors have traditionally be open and close and sliding glass doors, now you can have folding glass doors. Folding glass shower doors are ideal for larger shower enclosures. More and more home owners are opting to build large shower stalls and the folding glass shower doors are perfect for these larger enclosures. Folding glass doors can be made of five different types of glass. There is the popular clear glass, frosted glass, tinted glass, antiqued glass or etched glass from which to choose. These glass panels can be framed for a more decorative look or frameless for a cleaner appearance. They can also be bi-fold, tri-fold or accordion style with multiple folds to meet the needs of the shower opening. The types of shower constructions that can use folding glass shower doors include corner showers and stand-alone showers as well as showers built along one wall. The construction type allows the home owner to capture the best use of space and the folding shower door allows that space conservatism to not be squandered. The folding doors are the ideal closure because they open along the borders of the shower in an accordion type manner and do not require an excessive amount of room to open or close. Not only does the folding glass shower door complement the type of construction, it can also complement the bathrooms decor. By selecting a complementary glass, the shower can easily blend into the decor of the room. The options for the total look of the glass are numerous, from partially transparent to fully etched and frosted to completely transparent clear glass. The folding glass can also be bordered with a frame or frameless. It can also be partially framed and hinged or simply hinged with metal and no frame at all. All shower door glass is made of safety tempered glass. Generally, the thickness of the glass is 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch or 1/2 inch. Because the glass is safety tempered, if it should ever break, it will shatter into round or square pieces, not sharp shards. Folding glass shower doors are a major breakthrough for the bathroom design industry. They afford the homeowner so many additional possibilities for shower design. With all this versatility, the industry will see more and more innovation in the design of shower configurations and space can be more adequately utilized.
