Frameless Pivot Shower Doors
Frameless pivot shower doors are defined by their brilliant engineering. Pivot hinged shower doors highlight the glass door, balanced on upper and lower pivots, while downplaying any obvious door hinges.
Pivot shower doors also enhance any configuration including custom designs. The pivot shower door offers stability and structural support, thanks to the way it naturally distributes weight along a tiled floor.

Pivot hinges use:
- Floor-to-ceiling application, in which the hinges are anchored to the floor and ceiling rather than to the side wall.
- Floor-to-sidewall application, in which the lower hinge is fastened to the floor and the upper hinge is fastened to the wall.
- Glass-to-glass application, in which hinges are fastened to a side panel. Please note that when using pivot hinges, there may be a need to use a support bar (header) to gain additional support. Please consult with your design specialist for details.
