FRAMELESS SHOWER DOORS IN NYC
Frame-less Shower doors are the top choice in NYC when it come to remodeling or renewing the bathroom.
WHAT ARE FRAMELESS SHOWER DOORS?
A “frameless” shower enclosure uses sturdy tempered glass that does not require the support of metal around its exterior edges. The result is a clean-lined, modern look that is free of visual obstructions.
In fact, one reason frameless shower doors are so popular is that they help showcase beautiful stonework, intricate tile designs, and gleaming hardware.
This type of shower door is sometimes referred to as “semi-frameless.”

Here are the to things to consider about the frame-less shower doors.
- Better Looking – Face it, they look smashing. Simple slabs of thick tempered glass that appear to be cubes of glass.
- Thicker Glass – Because frameless shower doors do not have the structural benefit of metal framing, the glass must be thicker. Glass is typically about a quarter-inch thick.
- Heavy – A 72″ x 36″ frameless door may weigh as much as 70 pounds. Compare to a framed glass shower door, which may weigh about 45-50 pounds.
- Expensive – Costs run from the $400s to the thousands. Framed shower doors easily will cost 40% less.
- Easier to Clean – a Solid sheet of glass has no framing to impede cleaning.
- Difficult to Install – Because of the frameless door’s excessive weight, care must be taken to ensure that it is securely installed–a task often best left to professionals.
- Left or Right Opening – Most frameless doors have the option of hinges being installed on either side–but don’t assume so. Check the specs.
