Corner Shower Doors are designed to fit corner showers, which are an alternative to conventional showers often used as space savers in smaller bathrooms. Because sliding or bypass doors take up the least space, they are a popular option for corner shower doors, but corner shower doors are available in all different sizes and styles.
In-Line Shower Doors are used on square or rectangular showers that are enclosed by walls on three sides and open on only one side. They connect at a 180-degree angle straight linear to one or more glass panels on either or both sides of the door. In-line shower doors can be framed, frameless, or semi-frameless, and are available in various styles from a simple swinging door to more complex configurations.
Neo-Angle Shower Doors are designed for neo-angle or diamond-shaped showers, a space-saving style often used for corner showers. A neo-angle shower typically is enclosed by walls on two sides, with glass panels connecting the walls to a shower door, which is directly across from the inner corner of the shower. Unlike in-line shower doors, neo-angle shower doors connect to the enclosure at an angle rather than in a straight line.
Semi-Frameless Shower Doors are a compromise between framed and frameless shower doors. They have metal around only part of the door. For instance, a shower door with a metal frame on the top and bottom but none on the sides would be considered semi-frameless. Semi-frameless shower doors are a popular choice in that they provide almost the same contemporary, open look as frameless doors, at a cost closer to that of framed doors.
Shower Door Splash Guards are rigid fittings made from glass or plastic that deflect water back into the shower and prevent leakage beyond the shower area. They can be used in conjunction with or instead of shower doors.
Single Shower Doors are the simplest shower doors consisting of a single glass panel that swings open and closed. They can be framed, frameless, or semi-frameless, and are available in a variety of sizes and styles.
Sliding Shower Doors, also called bypass doors, consist of two or sometimes three glass panels that open and close by sliding across each other. They take up less space than other shower doors in the sense that they don't expand out to the bathroom when opened. Because they use at least two glass panels, they are recommended for wider shower openings.
