For larger bathrooms, consider a frameless shower enclosure to add dimension to your room. Like frameless doors, this design gives your bathroom a clean and modern feel.

Enclosures can be rectangular or hexagonal, depending on the configuration of your bathroom and budget.

Bi-fold shower doors are great for bathrooms with limited space, like corner bathrooms. These doors feature panels that fold inside the shower, allowing you to utilize your space as much as possible.

Not only are these doors a practical solution for smaller bathrooms, but they are also extremely affordable.

If you want to create a walk-in shower, curved glass doors can open up your shower and give the feeling of a larger space. Curved glass doors feature a frame at the top and bottom of the door.

Common thicknesses of glass are 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm. Households generally use 6mm and 8mm. The prices of 10mm and 12mm will be relatively high, because the glass will be thicker and heavier. Secondly, the glass door of the shower room must be tempered glass, and the 3C certification mark can be seen.

The high-quality tempered glass looks more transparent, without impurities, bubbles, corrugations, smooth surface and crisp sound.

The profile frame of the glass door must have sufficient strength, and the main materials are stainless steel and aluminum alloy. Compared with aluminum alloy, the strength and durability of stainless steel will be better, and the price will be relatively higher.

The thickness of the glass door used for home is at least 1.2mm, the thicker the stronger, the higher the price.

In general, the aluminum alloy profiles are all polished. Normally, the surface should be smooth without trachoma, and the feel should be smooth.
