Shower Door of the Week: Steam Unit in Arlington, Virginia
Two? Two transoms in one? Have they gone mad!? Yep, we’re crazy about this steam unit design!
Steam units require tall glass. Usually we recommend either a fixed transom or an operable one. But this custom enclosure has such a high ceiling that we put in both to ensure good symmetry and proportions. The homeowners loved our design! And our expert technicians were pretty proud too.
Shower door nerd note: If you’re still in the designing phase, you can also consider using a bulk head from the ceiling to keep the unit height more standard. But for neo-angle or corner units, it’s important that the bulk head aligns with the curb below. That way the reveals will stay consistent from top to bottom.
