Sliding doors or bypass doors take up the least space. They are also consisted of 2 to 3 panels sliding past each other on bottom and top tracks. Those are the Alumax shower door parts you need to concern when caring for sliding shower doors. This shower door option is ideal for wide openings; typically the size is 60 inches wide. Usually, they are used in corner freestanding showers and alcove with stationary panels.
On the other hand, there are round shower doors that open inwards, ideal for corner freestanding showers. The curved glass design is attached to the bottom and top of the door frame for smooth operation and stability, creating the more spacious bathing area. There are also neo-angle shower doors that can make a perfect choice for corner installations. This shower enclosure type takes up only little space and can be installed to swing open right or left. Corner showers or freestanding ones can fit this door type perfectly.
Last but not least, there are pivot doors, which are also known as swing-open or one-panel swinging doors. They are installed in a freestanding shower space and open outwards from a single side. If the showers are too small to accommodate a bypass door, a pivot door can make a better substitution. If the opening is larger, pivot doors, which parts are different than Alumax sliding shower door parts, can be installed with 1 or 2 fixed panels, as well as installed as either single or double-hinged mounted so they can swing in and out.
