Benefits of a Frameless Glass Shower Door

Benefits of a Frameless Glass Shower Door

If you're like most people, you'll be very familiar with a 'standard' shower enclosure or door. One made of glass and framed with metal, that is. The glass used in these doors is traditionally quite thin and therefore inexpensive. However, the glass needs the metal frame in order to support and strengthen it enough for it to fulfill its' purpose.
There is now another option, which is becoming increasingly popular. It is the frameless glass shower door NJ.
This is made out of thicker, tempered (i.e. strengthened) glass. This means that no metal is needed to strengthen and support the door, only to secure the panels to your wall or shower unit.

As the door is made of thicker glass, it will last 3 or 4 times as long as the traditional design. Naturally, this is a huge benefit as it's uncommon for people to replace their bathrooms frequently.
Another clear (no pun intended...) benefit is the look. A frameless glass shower door gives a much cleaner, more streamlined, modern, minimalist look to your bath or shower room.


  1. One thing that I really like about these types of showers is that they look modern. When we think of shower, we all think of the tub/shower combo, or the single shower on it's own. With something like this, it looks a lot better than a normal shower. One other point you made is that it will last three to four times longer due to thicker glass being used. I would suggest that when installing something like this, that you get the help of a professional. Not many people can do this on their own without breaking something.

  2. I would like to put in a frameless glass shower door. My worry is that the seal against the floor won't be as water tight as I am thinking it could be. Have you have a problem with water spurting underneath the door frame? No one wants a flooded bathroom.
