Semi-Frameless Shower Doors Elevate the Look of Your Bathroom


Today’s semi-frameless shower door styles are very dynamic. From classic to Gridscape, semi frameless shower enclosures and doors add upscale flair to any bathroom. Semi-frameless sliders dramatically elevate a tub’s appearance. Unlike framed showers where all sides and doors are framed, a semi-frameless shower is framed on the top and sides only, the doors and glass corner angles are not framed – hence the term “semi-frameless”. In comparison, a frameless shower has minimal or no framing along the top, glass corner angles or doors. Available in many finishes, colors and glass styles, semi-frameless shower doors can be designed to suit a wide variety of budgets. GET A FREE SEMI-FRAMELESS QUICK QUOTE.

Semi-Frameless shower doors are made from tempered glass that is 1/4″ or 3/8″ thick. Glass options include clear – to showcase an unusual background or tile work, obscure for those who prefer more privacy, and patterned – which bring an additional design element into the room as well as more privacy. Semi-frameless showers use plated moldings that are available in a variety of finishes and colors. These finishes offer you the choice of using the frame as a design feature or having it blend-in and “disappear” into the background.
