There are many options to consider when choosing doors for your glass shower or tub enclosure. Among them are hinged or sliding doors.
Sliding doors are great for small spaces as they don’t require a large span of space like hinged doors. TOP Technik offers a wide range of sliding doors that can be customised to your needs and interior.
In contemporary interior design, the distinction between walls and doors is disappearing. This is not just a trend, but a necessity. With this in mind, we have developed a door that is completely flush with the wall without a casing or frame. This enables you to lighten the division of rooms and create harmonic interiors.
Frameless doors with a Tectus subframe are installed into the wall without any architraves or jambs and camouflage perfectly. Their unique appearance is particularly appreciated in bathrooms, where they are ideal for lightly separating the room without disrupting the space.
Flush interior doors also provide the perfect backdrop for our door handles with flat rosettes. The PIATTA S series is the ultimate expression of this minimalist door aesthetic. The handle fits almost seamlessly into the surface of the door. It is also easy to lock the door with one hand because the locking mechanism is integrated into the handle itself.
If you’re looking to add privacy and security to a sliding bathroom door or bedroom barn door, you may want to consider installing a lock. There are many different types of locks available that will work with your bathroom door hardware and style. Most locking mechanisms can be installed on the inside or outside of the door depending on your preference.
Some options like the tear drop latch lock are simple and subtle in design, making them perfect for a bedroom barn door or a bathroom with a shower. Others, like the barrel slide bolt or the Rustica Door Latch + Lock, are more secure and can be locked from either side of the door.
If you get locked in a bathroom, you can try using a credit card or a bobby pin to unlock the door if you cannot find any other tools around. Trying to open the door with force can damage it, so you should always yell for help or look for alternate ways to escape.
A glass sliding bathroom door is the perfect solution for anyone looking to save space in their home. Unlike hinged doors, glass sliding doors don’t require a door swing and can be opened fully to provide maximum light flow while still offering privacy.
Sliding doors also offer a variety of decorative styles, from frosted glass to rain glass. Frosted glass offers privacy without compromising light flow while rain glass offers a natural, stylistic look that works well with many different home design styles.
Sliding shower doors can be frameless, semi-frameless, or framed. Frameless enclosures use a thicker glass that is held in place by aluminum framing. Semi-frameless enclosures feature a U-channel that acts as a seal and helps prevent leakage, and they allow for thinner glass. A framed enclosure features an aluminum header that encases all of the edges of the door panels.
Unlike glass doors, plastic sliding bathroom doors are resistant to moisture and can be easily cleaned. They are available in a variety of colours and styles to complement any bathroom design. They also cost less than glass doors.
Sliding doors are a great solution for bathrooms or cloakrooms where space is limited, as they don’t require additional room for the swing of a hinged door. They can be made from a range of materials, and can be fitted with locks for added privacy. They can also be frosted for an extra level of privacy and they can add a touch of elegance to the bathroom.
One of the more popular types of shower and tub enclosures is a “Crittall style” which has clear glass and a black frame that sits on the edge of the door. It is a nice alternative to frameless shower doors but still doesn’t look as modern as the true frameless designs.
