Glass shower enclosures are widely not only used in private residences, but also in hotels, spas, and some recreational fitness centers. They can be prepared for a variety of layout configurations including:
- Full-height shower door and sidelites (up to 8 ft, possibly 9ft)
- Full-height sidelites, shower door with transom (greater than 8ft)
- Partial-height sliding door and panel (set in top and bottom roller tracks on knee-wall/tub enclosure)
- Fully framed shower doors with fixed and/or operable sidelite panels
The most common of glass shower enclosures (those that are fully framed or sliders) typically accommodate 1/4" or 3/8" thick glass. Full-height frameless configurations generally utilize 3/8" or 1/2" thick glass. Additionally, glass can be treated to minimize mildew build-up and expedite moisture run-off.
