Barn style sliding glass shower doors bring together the charm of traditional barn doors, the space efficiency of sliding shower doors, and the modern elegance of frameless glass. Say good-bye to your uninspiring shower curtain and hello to the latest in shower design with barn door style sliding glass shower doors from ABC Glass and Mirror.
A barn style frameless shower enclosure can be added to most bathrooms in Northern Virginia homes. In fact, this design is ideal for bathrooms without a lot of extra floor space around the shower entrance. Since the door opens by sliding – rather than swinging – you never have to worry about it striking a cabinet or fixture or blocking access to another part of the room. This type of door system requires no more space than a shower curtain but adds so much more to the bathroom in terms of home fashion!
Two pieces of glass are integral to a barn style sliding glass shower door system: the sliding door panel and the fixed wall of glass next to it. The door panel is hung on a metal header that extends across the top of the enclosure. It slides past the fixed wall on rollers along the header for smooth, space friendly operation. When needed, one or two 90º glass returns are added to the shower to finish off the enclosure.
All sheets of glass on our barn style shower enclosures are frameless and give your shower a sleek, contemporary look. In lieu of framing, glaziers use thicker glass, metal clips, and caulk joints to construct the glass shower. Without the start and stop of framing, an enclosure gains a seamless, flowing ambiance.
