Sliding Shower Doors
We have hundreds of examples of sliding doors from which you can chose and we are delighted to describe and to illustrate. Many prefer the sliding door options when fitting a shower into a bathroom; they are especially practical in smaller bathrooms where space is at a premium allowing you to easily get in and out of the shower.
Naturally all the sliding shower doors that we sell are made with safety glass which complies with health and safety regulations. Options include a smoked glass appearance, straight doors and bowed doors. Most of the glass can have the added option that it remains clean, or is easy clean, to avoid regular cleaning to maintain the appearance. The sliding door is ideal where it is combined with a glass enclosure, or a built out and tiled shower and the sliding doors of today literally do glide in precision made tracks or suspension. All the leading manes in the shower manufacturing field are represented at our web pages and includes names such as Kudos, Daryl and Matki. Check through our shower enclosures web pages if you would like to see more suggestions for adding a shower or improving an existing one.
Sliding shower enclosures buyers guide
When choosing a new shower enclosure there are a number of factors to consider, such as how much space you have available, the way the door will open, the finish, and even the thickness of the glass. Our guide will help you to select the right shower enclosure that will not only suit your individual needs, but create a stunning feature in your bathroom.
The perfect choice for any bathroom
If you don’t have a lot of space to play with, and you want a door that is easy to open and close smoothly, a sliding shower enclosure is the perfect solution. These enclosures are great for the bathroom where space is limited, but are also at home in any size room. The door sits neatly inside the enclosure, and slides back and forth with ease. This means you don’t need to allow for any space outside of the enclosure for the door opening outwards, plus we also give you the choice of your door opening to the left or right.
Choosing the right shower enclosure to suit your needs
Not all shower enclosures are created equal, and with this in mind we offer our customers a wide range of options, each designed to suit individual requirements. The type you choose will depend on your personal preference, and the layout of your bathroom. Here we look into all the considerations you'll need to make to choose the right enclosure installation for you.
Whether you are upgrading your entire bathroom, or just installing a new shower, choosing the right shower enclosure can be a challenge, especially since there are so many products on the market. Make the wrong decision, and you could end up with a shower enclosure that doesn't fit, which leaks or which opens and closes in the most inconvenient manner. That's why it pays to do your research, and to ask for advice if you are not sure what you need. Our friendly team can help you with any aspect of bathroom design, helping you to choose the right fittings at a great price.
There are a number of installation methods available with our products, and our aim is to offer you as many versatile options as possible. No bathroom is the same, which is why we have carefully selected products designed to fit your bathroom perfectly, or which adjust to suit your space requirements and personal taste.
Corner Showers (with side panel)
Our corner sliding shower enclosures are fitted into the corner of your bathroom, and add a stunning and functional feature. Corner enclosures are the perfect solution for smaller bathrooms and en suites, or if you need to allow for other fittings installed close by. We stock a range of different sizes, and a range of different glass thicknesses and finishes.
Recess Showers(without side panels)
Recess sliding shower enclosures utilise the space between two walls, and therefore feature no side panels. These enclosures provide a sleek and stylish space-saving option, and provide a practical solution in bathrooms of any size. Our enclosures utilise intelligent design and robust engineering, offering a combination of reliable performance and stunning good looks.
When it comes to design and specifically enclosure frames, we offer a number of options. Whether you have a contemporary or traditional style bathroom, we are confident that we have the right enclosure design to suit your needs. The question is frames, no frames or semi-frameless. All offer a wealth of options, and come in a range of striking designs that will complement any bathroom.
Frameless sliding door enclosures are the perfect option for the contemporary bathroom, or the customer looking for minimalistic design. Creating a light, airy and modern feel, our frameless enclosures offer the best in style and shower door operation. Frameless doors are also remarkably easy to keep clean - perfect for those with a busy family, and who favour a stylish finish.
Our semi-frameless sliding shower enclosures offer minimal framework, and create a slim, sleek and modern look perfect for any space. If your bathroom has uneven walls, this type of enclosure allows for a small amount of adjustment for a perfect fit.
As their name suggests, framed sliding shower enclosures have a metal frame surrounding each pane of glass, and add a very attractive and robust feature to your bathroom. If you're after a look that includes a gleaming metallic or clean white finish, a framed enclosure would be the best option. A framed enclosure is also a good idea if you are worried about glass becoming chipped, although there is already a reduced risk of this happening when you choose a sliding door that operates within the enclosure.
Shower Glass thickness
Glass thickness may not be on your priority list when looking for a shower enclosure, but it is certainly worth understanding the different types so that you can choose the most suitable enclosure from our range. Each of our enclosures comes complete with precision engineered hinges, cushioned magnetic seals and fittings that will ensure the longevity of your enclosure, and that your glass panels are held perfectly in place.
4mm and 6mm glass shower enclosures
Our 6mm glass sliding shower enclosures offer great value for money without ever compromising on safety, style or quality. We do not recommend choosing a shower door below 4mm in thickness as the finish will be flimsy at best, and simply will not give you as many years reliable performance as a door with thicker glass. Safety is another top concern when choosing a shower enclosure, and we only supply shower enclosures that conform to the latest safety requirements.
8mm glass shower enclosures
We stock a huge range of 8mm sliding shower enclosures, and insist on presenting only the best brands and products to our customers. If you are looking for a top quality, sturdy and easy to operate sliding shower enclosure, we are confident that our 8mm doors offer the ultimate in design, quality and value.
10mm glass shower enclosures
Perfect for wet rooms, our 10mm provide additional weight without affecting operation. We offer a choice of 10mm enclosures for those looking to add a touch of exquisite luxury to their wet room or walk-in installation.
Another consideration is the handing of your sliding shower enclosure doors. Bathroom layout may dictate how your enclosure will open, or your choice may be based on something as simple as whether you are left or right handed. We stock a wide range of left and right handed enclosures. Reversible, or bi-sliding, doors offer left and right handed opening and closing, making them a very versatile option.
Shower Enclosure Finishes
Of course, construction, quality and longevity are everything when choosing a shower enclosure, but it is also the finishing touches that can make so much difference. We stock a wide range of enclosures in different finishes allowing you to choose the perfect look to suit your bathroom. Gleaming chrome or matt white looks at home in the contemporary bathroom, while a gold or brass finish adds opulence and warmth in a bathroom with a more traditional or lavish design.
