Whether you are building a new home or undergoing a bathroom remodeling project, our all-star team has the inspiration and skill to help turn your ideas into reality. We design, fabricate, and install all types of custom projects from glass doors to mirror glass and walls.
The most noticeable part of your bathroom is often the shower. At Birmingham Glass Works, we measure and fabricate all heavy glass shower doors and panels specifically for your enclosure to ensure proper design and fit. There are many ways to tailor a shower in a style all your own. We can assist you in selecting glass patterns, frame colors and finishes, handle types, and deciding on framed or frameless glass.
Frameless Shower Enclosures
Frameless shower enclosures eliminate or minimize the use of metal to hold glass panels and doors in place. When used with clear or rain-patterned glass, they can showcase the beauty of the tile or stone in your bath or shower space.
Semi-Frameless Shower Doors
A semi-frameless shower door works great for custom spaces or inserts. The door is the only glass piece not framed in metal and creates a sense of openness while retaining strength and durability. Custom semi-framed showers can also eliminate the vertical metal post at corner angles, creating a look similar to an aquarium. Pivot doors are a common semi-frameless glass enclosure often referred to as a one-panel swinging, or swing-open door. These shower doors open from a single side and are installed in a stand-alone shower space. Since pivot doors are typically between 36" to 48" wide, they are ideal for smaller openings, but may be used for larger openings if installed with one or two fixed panels. They can be single or double-hinge mounted allowing them to swing both in and out, and can be installed to open right or left depending on the layout of your bathroom.
Framed Shower Enclosures
For a more traditional choice, framed shower enclosures are full-framed installations. The door is protected and supported on all sides by metal and often has rubber seals and a drip edge to prevent water from leaking out onto the floor. Fully framed shower doors are often used for neo-angle style showers. A neo-angle enclosure is perfect for stand-alone corner installations, as they take up little space and can be installed to swing open left or right.
