In our collection some hinged shower doors come with a dedicated shower tray, others can be fitted with a separate shower tray of your choosing, or if you are looking to create a wet room within your bathroom, then there are options to accommodate that too. With the wide variety of door widths available, framed, frameless and semi-framless styles and configuration with matching inline side panels, we will have something to suit the shape of your bathroom and the space you have available.
What is a hinged shower door and how does it differ to a pivot door?
Hinged doors are mounted similarly to the doors in your lounge and bedroom at home. The side hinges are fixed near to the top and bottom of the vertical length of the shower door. Using a hinged door removes the need for a top or header bar, giving you the option to create the frameless look to your showering unit. Hinged doors project fully outward or inward to give you maximum space for entry and exit but which is something to be considered when you are thinking about the space available in your showering area.
A pivot door differs because rather than being mounted on side hinges, the door is mounted on pivot hinges which are located at the top and bottom of the door. This style of hinge allows the door to swing 180 degrees rather than just 90 so if space is an issue in your bathroom, then a door that opens inward is a good option. You are still afforded a generous width of space in which to enter and exit, but the maximum width is not available due to the where the pivot is mounted.
We have pages dedicated to our range of pivot style shower doors as well as the less traditional sliding and bi-fold doors.
