This is an example of a recent shower door installation, performed by Ames Glass. The shower door uses 3/8″ tempered clear glass. There is a bar header that runs from the wall to the glass fixed panel. The shower door is hinged off the adjacent glass panel. The home owner decided on clear glass to give the room a larger appearance. This is an illustration of a growing trend in bathroom design, larger shower enclosures, that are the centerpiece of the room.
