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.

Happy Clients
Called GCS a few months ago to do some custom glass on a new shower. It was an amazing finished project. I then asked them to do a custom fireplace glass for a recently converted fp. Needless to say, it is again a fantastic work and we could not be happier. I simply would not call anyone else. Garrett and the entire team is simply ‘the best.’

GCS did a great job with our bath glass, at a great price! All the guys that came out to measure, estimate or install, were polite...knowledgeable.....and even played with our puppy when they were leaving! We will definitely use them again when we start our next project!
Michael C
All around great service and efficient process from beginning to end. The contactless estimated quote process worked seamlessly and was very efficient. The project was done on time which is practically unheard of in this current environment. Every expectation was met or exceeded, plus everyone was friendly and great to work with.

Frameless Glass Shower Door Types

If you are in the process of renovating your bathroom or installing a new bathroom in a newly built home, you will have some big decisions to make regarding the lay-out and fixtures. One of the most important decisions of your bathroom design is how you will enclose your shower. 

Not only do shower door enclosures need to stop the spread of water, but they also need to be easy to clean and look great. With so many options to choose from, however, how do you know which is the right option for your space? If framed shower doors are not part of how you envisage your shower project, then we’re here to help. 

At GCS Glass and Mirror, we offer a wide range of custom-made, frameless glass shower doors perfectly designed to suit your bathroom. Your dream bathroom is just a phone call away

Single Shower Doors

Single frameless glass shower doors are ideal for standard-size shower enclosures (usually 22” to 34” wide opening). showers and are one of the most common frameless shower doors you will see. The frameless shower glass can in fact make the shower and surrounding bathroom space feel bigger.

A frameless pivot swing shower door is a great option for single panel installation, though they can also be secured in place as a shower screen or splash panel with a walk-in opening to the shower. This option is a great alternative to a stationary splash panel as it gives you more functionality when cleaning or bathing children. This is because it can be opened to give create more space.

Double Swing Doors

Wall to Glass hinged frameless glass shower doors can also be installed as double swing doors. Ideal for larger showers, their bold design makes a statement in any bathroom. These full-size frameless shower doors can be installed to swing inwards or outwards and are fantastic for allowing natural light into the entire shower space.

Pivot Door

Classic and simple pivot shower doors swing on simple pivot hinges which are fitted on top and bottom of the frameless glass shower doors. They can pivot both inwards and outwards. They offer a very clean as the hardware is placed on top and bottom of the glass rather than at eye level.

Barn Door Slider

Similar to bypass sliding doors, a barn door slider moves one panel over the other to create an opening. However, a  barn door slider has a round bar that only allows one door to slide. Comparatively, a double bypass has a square bar with two rails so that both panels can slide, bypassing one another.

Double-Bypass Sliding Shower Door

Perfect for shower stalls and bathrooms with limited space, a double bypass shower door simply slides back over the top of the door beside it. Custom designed slider layouts are available if you have an extra wide or large opening that calls for a more versatile slider option.
Semi Frameless Shower Doors

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.

Tub Doors

A tub door or tub panel is a frameless glass panel fixed to the wall and lip of the tub. These bath screens create a protective barrier against water for the rest of the bathroom while also making for a gorgeous bath free of messy, moldy shower curtains. 

Large Glass Shower Enclosures

With wet-room-style bathrooms becoming more common, your shower project may be better suited to a glass enclosure. Frameless shower doors & enclosures are ideal for those who want a protective barrier in place to deflect water from the rest of the bathroom while still creating the illusion of space. Large glass shower enclosures are also well suited to steam rooms where the glass is sealed floor to ceiling.

90 Degree Corner Shower Doors

If you have a corner shower, rather than make the entire shower space feel small and closed in with framed panels, opt for a custom frameless corner shower kit. Frameless shower doors & enclosures make the space feel bigger and allow natural light to flood the space.

Neo-Angle Door

Ideal for corner showers, a neo-angle door creates a flattened corner to your shower surround. This helps create extra functional space by removing the shower enclosure’s protrusion into the rest of the bathroom. 

Steam Showers

Opting for frameless shower doors on your steam shower adds a sleek, elegant finish. When installed by the professionals at GCS Glass & Mirror, your glass shower enclosure will offer superior protection for your bathroom from the effects of the steam.

Shower Panel Configuations

Door & Nib

Do you have a tiled nib wall separating your vanity from your shower? This is the perfect situation to install a custom glass frameless shower panel. Our team will expertly measure and fit the panel for a seamless and sleek shower enclosure.

Door & Notched Panel

Selected wall tiles with a unique profile and now having issues finding a suitable fit of shower door or side panels? We offer notched panels and frameless doors that are expertly cut to accommodate the tile and offer a seamless, waterproof joint. We also offer these options for showers requiring a custom fit to accommodate a return in addition to the door and notched panel.

Splash Panel

Prefer to walk into your shower and have no door at all? You will still require a splash barrier and if a shower curtain doesn’t appeal, then a single shower glass panel is the answer. Expertly installed to align with the hob and wall, splash panels are both effective and hygienic.

Custom Glass Shower Walls

For a simple, fresh, and easy-to-clean option, consider using custom glass panels for your shower walls in place of tiles. Glass walls are easy to clean, are durable, and create an effective moisture barrier.

Custom Shower Styles & Design Options​

There are so many viable options for the glass used in your shower, stick with a classic clear finish or go for a unique and bold design.
Cool Glass Shower Design - Metal Work

Black Grid Style Doors

Incredibly popular, this option is ideal for those dreaming of a more contemporary shower space. Black grid-style doors look best in a white bathroom where the contrast can be admired while also ensuring the space does not look overwhelmed. 

Frosted / Etched Glass Doors

Perfect for privacy, frosted and textured glass doors create a more cozy feel than clear glass. As they are still transparent, they allow for natural light to still access the shower space. The frosting can be applied to the entire panel or as a pattern.

Frosted Opaque Doors

Opaque glass doors offer the ultimate privacy. Opaque doors are perfect for shared family bathrooms, divided style shower doors, locker rooms, or even as room dividers and household doors. They do limit the amount of natural light that can access your shower, so are a shower door design that is best placed in bright, open bathrooms.

Cast Glass Doors

Cast designs such as rain glass offer a unique and interesting way to inject personality into your shower space. Rather than normal glass, the cast glass includes a design of your choosing that is carefully cut into the glass surface. 

Custom Arched Doors

Ideal for tub doors or single panel shower doors, arched frameless glass panels add interest through a simple shift away from the standard square shapes we are used to. The rounded edges add softness and uniqueness to your shower enclosure.

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.

At GCS Glass & Mirror we are committed to providing affordable custom shower solutions for your shower project, no matter the size or complexity. From a walk-in shower screen, single-sliding frameless shower door, typical bypass shower door, and more we’re here to help you create the bathroom of your dreams. That includes helping you stay within your desired budget.

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.

At GCS we work with you on all of these factors and provide our best estimate at the time of the quote.
