Custom Frameless Shower Doors
Frameless shower doors, also known as “Euro doors” or “heavy plate” doors, are visually stunning and give your bath a spacious, well-lighted appearance. As the name implies, no frames break up the expanse of glass; instead, clamps, hinges and glass-mounted handles are incorporated into the doors. Frameless shower doors are easily customized to fit your bathroom’s floor plan and have the added benefit of being easier to clean and maintain. They also increase the value of your home at resale.
Design Your Dream Shower Space
When you decide to install frameless shower doors in your bath, the experts at Glass Doctor of Finger Lakes stand ready to guide you through the entire process. All details, including budget, design, installation and maintenance are handled by one of our glass specialists who works closely with you to ensure your new or upgraded enclosure meets all your expectations.
We begin the process by asking you to consider some elements that affect design and installation:
Measurements and Configuration
Accurate measurements will help avoid delay in installing your frameless shower doors, so be sure to schedule an appointment with one of our glass specialists for an expert evaluation. Since frameless shower doors are made from heavier glass, it’s important to know the maximum weight your walls will support. We’ll check if your walls are made of drywall or tile, and locate the supporting studs.
The only area of a frameless shower door that is vulnerable is the door, so shower heads and body sprays should not be installed directly opposite the enclosure’s opening. Instead, all heads and sprays should be directed towards the tile wall or fixed panels.
Proper ventilation with your new shower enclosure is vital. Improper ventilation causes moisture build-up, which leads to peeling paint and mold growth. If your new design includes a steam room, special ventilation panels are required and Glass Doctor of Finger Lakes will install those as well.
