Why Choose Shower Glass Panels?
Installing glass shower doors is a quick and effective way to modernize your bathroom. By removing your shower curtain and adding shower glass panels, you create an entirely new look. Modern bathrooms feature openness, and glass doors create this effect.
How to Install a Walk-in Shower Glass Panel
Shower glass panels can be difficult to install, so follow these steps closely:
- Build a Template for Your Glass
Use a tape measure to carefully measure the panel area. Additionally, consider cutting a large piece of carboard or plywood to make a template for the glass. This will help you to visualize the future glass panel.
- Buy or Cut Metal Channels
Metal channels will secure the glass panel in place. Measure the opening again to ensure you have the exact dimensions for the channels. Purchase channels with your pre-cut glass.
- Mount the Metal Channels
Once you have the metal channels, you will need to secure them to the wall. Using a drill, make holes in the metal channels so they can be secured to the wall. You may need to use a special drill bit if you are inserting the screws into porcelain tile or granite.
- Place Shower Glass in Channels
Once the metal channels are installed, apply clear silicone in the channels and carefully slide the shower glass panel in. This will secure the glass into the channel and allow your glass to be secure.
