See How Great Your Shower and Bath Enclosures Can Be

Types of Glass Shower Enclosures

There are many types of Glass Shower Enclosures available to suit your bathroom design and style. Some are completely transparent while others are opaque. You can choose from low-iron glass or etched glass. There are also Curbless and Acid-wash designs. Choosing a style is an important part of the project.

Low-iron glass

Low-iron glass shower enclosures are a popular option for many people. Low-iron glass has a higher transmittance of visible light and better color fidelity than ordinary clear glass. Standard clear glass has a smooth acid-etched surface. While this makes the glass panel appear a little darker at the edges, the hue and saturation will remain constant no matter how large the glass panel is.

Etched glass

Etched glass shower enclosures are beautiful, and they are also a great way to personalize a shower. They can feature your own personal image or a piece of art glass signed by the artist. The art glass gives your bathroom a three-dimensional character that is stunning compared to plain, heavy glass. There are many different types of art glass shower enclosures, and some of the best are made by local artisans. One company that makes these is Capistrano Valley Glass & Mirror, which has a reputation for excellent customer service and high-quality products. Other local glass artists who can create custom etched glass shower enclosures include Nolan Everett Architectural Art Glass and Classical Glass Studios.

Tempered glass shower doors

Tempered glass shower doors have a variety of benefits over regular glass shower doors. They are tough and durable, and will not shatter easily when exposed to hot water or moisture. Also, they do not require as much maintenance as regular glass shower doors. This is a big plus, especially if you have small children in the house. Bathrooms are notorious for accidents, and ordinary glass will not withstand repeated scratches and wear and tear.

The tempered glass used in shower doors is made with a special treatment that will break it into smaller pieces than annealed glass. It comes in a variety of styles and colors, including clear and ultra-clear glass. In addition, tempered glass can be acid-etched, patterned, or cast.

Frameless glass shower doors

Installing a frameless glass shower door is a great modern option. The glass is custom-fabricated to fit each door. This means less crevices and cracks to trap dirt and germs. They offer a clean, modern design with less parts that can break. That's why installing a frameless shower door can greatly increase the resale value of your home.

Frameless shower doors are typically operated with rollers. These rollers slide along a metal bar near the top of the enclosure. You can choose between a dual sliding or fixed panel install. To select the right frameless shower door for your home, consider the size of your bathroom and your family's needs.


Framed glass shower enclosures come in a variety of styles and designs. Many of these enclosures are custom-made. This means you can choose the thickness and design of the glass panels, and the hardware.

Rain glass

Rain glass shower enclosures are a great way to improve the look and feel of a bathroom. These doors are made from textured glass that gives the room a spa-like feel. The textured glass helps minimize the appearance of water spots and gives privacy to the shower user. You can choose from clear, frosted, or patterned glass.
