Choosing a glass shower door


Choosing a glass shower door

Shower doors are one of the most important components of a shower enclosure. They must reliably insulate the room from water leakage , withstand multiple openings/closures and fit organically into the bathroom interior. 

Bkny Glass offers models of various sizes, designs, among which it is easy to select and purchase shower doors according to the size and design of your bathroom.

When choosing a door for a shower, you should pay attention to such parameters as the material, the method of opening and the quality of fittings. Shower doors are often made of polystyrene or tempered glass. Plastic shower door has the small weight (which essentially speeds up installation) and affordable price. Such models are suitable for economical repairs. But keep in mind that polystyrene eventually turns yellow and scratched. 

A glass shower door is more expensive than polystyrene analogues. But for durability and practicality, it far surpasses plastic models. Glass cloth is stable to abrasive influences, does not become cloudy during use. Any contamination can be easily removed. 

Opening method. By way of opening, shower doors are divided into sliding and swing. The first type is universal. Sliding structures will be appropriate for a small and spacious bathroom. The canvas of such a door moves along guides on the front wall of the cabin and when opened does not take up space in the room. 

Swing doors are easy to use and durable. Since most of these models open outward, when designing a bathroom, you must provide a place to open them. Hinged doors are ideal for decorating showers located in an alcove.

Fittings. Fittings (brackets, hinges, mounting profiles) provide rigidity and tightness to the door structure. Fittings for glass doors are made of brass and stainless steel. PVC or aluminum profiles are used to frame plastic structures.
