Shower glass rounded
It is increasingly popular to have only one glass panel by the shower head attached to the wall permanently with metal clamps or “U” channel. These shower glass surfaces can also be hinged on the wall and swing in and out like a door, but not closing to anything but just having an open space where people can step into their shower or bathtub. These shower glass panels can be made of any thickness of glass between 1/4″ and 1/2″ in thickness. In most cases we recommend the golden middle selection of 3/8″ glass.
The one glass panel is a real elegant and simple solution. It can be just a rectangular 3/8 thick tempered shower glass with no curve or radius at all on the top of the panel Sometimes the shower glass panels going up to the top are installed into metal channel or tied there with a clamp.
