Sliding Glass Shower Doors

Some customers are interested in sliding glass shower doors because of how they look, while others are interested because of space limitations that preclude a swinging shower door. We carry several sliding shower door systems that meet these market needs, all of which are affordable and made of high-quality components.

 

Hydroslide Shower Doors

The Hydroslide is a single sliding shower door system, meaning that it has one fixed glass panel and one sliding glass panel. We can fabricate Hydroslide shower doors for showers, tubs, and corner showers where glass meets glass at 90 degrees. The standard handle for these units is the contemporary knob, and Hydroslide shower door systems are available in the following finishes:

  • Chrome
  • Brushed Nickel
  • Oil Rubbed Bronze
  • Polished Brass

Serenity Shower Doors

The Serenity is another single sliding shower door system with little functional difference to the Hydroslide system. The metal header is square instead of round, and the roller hardware also differs from the Hydroslide. However, both systems use 3/8″ glass and their differences are purely aesthetic. The standard handle for the Serenity shower door system is a disc knob, and this shower enclosure is available in the following finishes:

  • Polished Stainless
  • Brushed Stainless
  • Oil Rubbed Bronze

Essence Shower Doors

The Essence is our third offering in the modern single sliding shower door segment, but it differs from the Hydroslide and Serenity shower door systems in two important ways. First, it uses 1/2″ glass, the heaviest glass available for shower doors, instead of 3/8″ glass. Second, instead of a metal header spanning the full width of the shower opening, it employs a small, contained metal guide where the two pieces of glass overlap. Some people prefer the Essence shower door system because of this more minimal header hardware, while others are put off by the relatively large metal brackets on the stationary glass and the matching rollers at the base of the sliding glass door. These are merely matters of preference though, as the Essence is undoubtedly a well-designed and sturdy shower door system. The standard handle is a c-pull shower door handle, and the Essence is available in the following hardware finishes:

  • Chrome
  • Brushed Nickel
  • Oil Rubbed Bronze
  • Polished Brass

Bypass Sliding Shower Doors

Bypass sliding systems are what most people think of when they hear “sliding shower doors.” The original patent for these systems dates back to the mid-1960’s, but there have been many improvements in how they look and operate over the decades. For instance, these shower enclosures no longer use the dreaded E-track at the base, where all sorts of grime and soap scum tended to accumulate. Both pieces of glass slide in bypass shower doors systems, and they can either be framed or frameless. The framed versions have metal physically adhered to the sliding panels, whereas the frameless systems have free-floating frameless glass panels sliding between metal wall jambs. Although there is metal around the perimeter of the shower door system in both cases, these are still great options for most guest bathrooms and children’s bathrooms. The standard handles are tubular towel bars, and our bypass sliding shower doors are available in the following finishes:

  • Chrome
  • Brushed Chrome
  • Brushed Nickel
  • Polished Nickel
  • Oil Rubbed Bronze
  • Polished Brass
