Frameless shower doors are growing in popularity, and for good reason. It complements bathroom design by introducing elegance and openness. In addition, they are mildew-resistant and easy to maintain. So, what is a frameless shower door? This is a door made of tempered glass with chunky dimensions without a frame that ideally provides support.

 

The big question remains: how does it work? Since they have no supports, they come with clips, hinges or door pulls. As for water leaks, there are rubber extensions on the bottom of the panel to prevent water leaks.

How to Install a Frameless Shower Door

While hiring a professional is the best option for installing shower doors, a tight budget may prompt us to explore our skills in the field.

 

clean the area

Scrub walls and floors thoroughly, not forgetting corners or hard-to-reach surfaces that may collect dirt. While these doors come in standard sizes, it is advisable to make sure it fits your enclosure exactly.

 

Install hinges and handles on glass panels

Once you're sure the size is right, attach the hinges and handle to the panel. Keep in mind that if it is too tight, it may damage or break the glass. At the same time, it should not come loose as it may fall out.

 

Put the swing door into place

Of your two panels, one should be shorter; that's the revolving door. It should have a water sweeping system on the bottom, which can be a plastic or rubber strip. Complete this step by placing wooden shims on the floor.

 

Install longer panels

Place longer panels to coincide with swing doors. As for the gap between the doors, make sure it's 1/16" from top to bottom. It is important to make sure the panel is flat.

 

drilling

Using a pencil or any other erasable marker, mark the points where you want the hinge to be fastened. Then drill holes and position anchors at these marked points. The anchor's head may be uneven, that's okay. Use a razor blade to shave them off.

 

Tighten the hinges to the wall

Take a swing door or shorter glass panel and place it on a wooden shim. Line up the two panels correctly, not forgetting the required 1/16" clearance. If all is well, fasten the hinge to the wall.

 

Add a sweeping system

At the bottom of the hinged door, add a water sweeping system to prevent water from leaking to the outside.
