Why Go Frameless?
There are so many reasons why you should opt for frameless glass shower doors over framed shower doors. We’ve all experienced the dreaded shower curtain that sticks to you and quickly grows mold or screens with metal frames that are a haven for soap scum.
Builder grade framed shower glass enclosures are typically glazed with a push vinyl that cracks, breaks, and doesn’t seal in corners well. By comparison, frameless shower glass enclosures are wet sealed to deflect water for years to come. If taken care of, a high-grade waterproof silicone will look better for years to come and help to make the shower glass more secure also.
Frameless doors make showering easier. They make the space feel larger thanks to their modern design and added the ability for more natural light to get in. The lack of framing means fewer places for soap scum or moisture to build up. As a result, frameless shower door enclosures remain cleaner for longer and take less effort to clean in general – making them the ideal choice for your shower project.

Barn Door Slider
Double-Bypass Sliding Shower Door
Semi-Frameless Double Bypass Sliders
Double bypass sliders are ideal for creating a large opening to the shower in bathrooms where space is at a premium. They are the preferred option over bi-fold shower doors which are often awkward and difficult to use.
Due to the weight of the glass and the way in which the doors slide, this option is often installed as a semi-frameless shower door with metal frames. This is most often seen with dual-sliding frameless shower doors.
The presence of a partial frame helps to support the weight of the doors and enables them to slide properly. The main difference between a frameless double slider and a semi-frameless bypass slider is the frame around the perimeter of the opening and usually the thickness of glass. ⅜” for frameless and ¼” for semi.
A typical bypass shower door (single-sliding frameless shower door) may still be possible without a metal frame depending on your shower.

Shower Door FAQS
Semi-frameless shower doors will still have some visible frame surrounding them but may also have some frameless edges. A fully frameless shower door is made using thicker glass and is specially installed with only hinges or sliders and some small safety fixtures – there is no metal frame at all.
If you are unsure which style of shower door is best suited for your shower project, our friendly team is happy to help.
Absolutely. Shower glass whether frameless or within framed shower doors is made using tempered glass. Tempered glass is specially treated and is four times more durable than regular glass.
In the event of it shattering, the pieces will be small and without the sharp, jagged edges that standard glass produces upon breaking. Within the USA, federal code requires that all shower glass is tempered, so you can feel confident in your safety no matter the shower door style you choose for your shower project.
When properly installed your frameless shower door should also be a leak-free frameless shower door. While not totally watertight (no shower door is – even fully framed glass shower doors can leak) your frameless shower door should not leak unless direct shower spray is aimed at the door opening.
This small opening can have a side seal fitted if a tighter closure is preferred. Our team can advise regarding these and other shower door products or shower finishings as required.
The cost for frameless shower doors is usually more than traditional shower/framed shower doors. The exact cost for each shower project is varied and determined based on a number of factors. A basic frameless pivot shower door will of course be more affordable than dual frameless shower doors & enclosures.

Building regulations require that shower doors open outward, however, they can also open inward. The reason behind them not being allowed to merely open inward. In order to be able to reach the user in the event of a fall or medical emergency, a shower door must be able to open outward. One could easily become trapped inside a door that only opens inward.
A good estimate for a shower replacement would be between three to five days. However, it can take much longer than that in certain circumstances, depending on what other projects you have going on during your remodel/ new bathroom build.
Some of these factors could be:
- If you are replacing or updating the tile work in the shower.
- The availability of the glass or hardware you have chosen
- Overall availability of our crew at the time you requested your installation.
