How to Replace a Glass Shower Door | Magic Glass

  • 2 min read
There is nothing more aesthetically pleasing in a bathroom than having a glass shower door that adds that feeling of space and light. When having trouble with your existing one, or if you simply fancy a change, there are a few things that need to be considered before replacing a glass shower door.⁣

The styles and variety of shower doors available is vast, so take some time to shop around before deciding on the final one. ⁣

Although without major renovations you can’t change the design of your shower, most being a bathtub shower, alcove stand-alone shower or a corner stand-alone shower, you can change other features that you may not be aware of.⁣

Frame Designs
  • Framed: Framed shower doors have framing all around the glass⁣.
  • Frameless: Frameless doors are supported by unobtrusive clamps built into the wall or floor⁣.
  • Semi frameless: Semi frameless doors have one or two supporting frames.⁣

Material⁣s
  • uPVC⁣
  • Aluminium⁣
  • Stainless Steel⁣
  • Types of Doors⁣
  • Sliding Doors⁣
  • Pivot Doors⁣
  • Glass⁣
  • Clear⁣
  • Frosted⁣
  • Opaque⁣
  • Patterned⁣

As you can see the combinations using the above examples gives you many great options when choosing a new door for your shower. Deciding on what shower door you want will actually most likely take more time than replacing it. However there are two important points to remember before going ahead with this.⁣

1. Measurements
Making sure that you buy a door that fits properly is critical. There is no room for error at all. If the shower door is even 2mm too big it isn’t going to fit, no matter how much you try. If the door is 2mm too small, depending on the design of your shower, you will have water leaking into the rest of your bathroom.⁣

2. Safety
Safety is extremely important when you are dealing with glass in the bathroom. The mixture of soap and water makes the floor very slippery and accidents happen. Building codes and government regulations are very strict when it comes to these types of features in the bathroom and if you install the wrong standard of glass or the workmanship is substandard it could have detrimental consequences.⁣

Replacing a glass shower door should not be a DIY job due to the health and safety issues tied in with the legal ramifications. Magic Glass not only offers a 24/7 service in case of an emergency but has over 20 years of experience in the industry. Give them a call and let them worry about legal matters and ensure that all health and safety standards are met. ⁣
