A swing shower door is similar to a single shower door with
one minor exception. A swing shower door features a slim pane of fixed glass that covers a tiny opening in the
shower door. When the glass door swings open or shut, this small sliver stays into place. This small pane
features that hinges upon which the swinging shower door opens or closes. This provides more stability to your
swinging shower door, making it more durable, strong and longer lasting. This helps to hold a larger, heavier
piece of glass.
When you need to add Swinging Open Door
A swing open shower door is one of the most common types of shower doors for larger shower stalls. If
you have a larger shower stall, you may need something that is larger than a single shower door. The
single shower door may not be large enough to cover the entire opening to your shower door. Instead,
a swing shower door provides the perfect option. The swing shower door features a smaller pane of
glass that is fixed to help cover more of the door, while also having a swing open shower door. This
provides you the best of both worlds and offers up a larger opening for a larger shower stall.
Why A Single Shower Door Screen Is A Practical
When space is an issue, selecting a single shower door is usually desired. The elimination of
excessive hardware makes it a snap for installation and the end result is a glass panel with a sleek
design and pleasing appearance. Since the door will be constructed of a single pane of glass, the
shower will appear larger from both the inside and outside view. The purchase of a single glass
shower door is ultimately an inexpensive option that still allows for the recipient to enjoy the
luxury of a pane of glass in their bathing area. Cleaning a single panel saves time as well as money
on cleaning supplies.Not only is cost a plus with a swinging shower door, but the ease of use is
also a positive point. Homes with elderly inhabitants, youngsters, or handicapped people will find
that getting in and out of a shower is safer than other options.
The appearance of the shower is classy as well. A shower rail can be placed on a nearby
wall on the exterior of the shower, as well as another one on the interior to aid in keeping those with
difficulty standing from potential harm. Since the door is easy to use, those using the shower will enjoy
being able to use it privately as assistance will be less likely to be needed as with other options. Single
panels also come in a variety of glass styles and thicknesses.
