Pivot Door Shower Enclosures

Pivot Shower Doors, Enclosures & Side Panels

Pivot shower doors provide a fantastic solution for bathrooms which have shower enclosures positioned in an alcove. A pivot door slots into a dedicated space and as the name suggests, it pivots on two pins that are located at the top and bottom of the frame which allows the door to open and close. As the pivoting pins are located as near to the wall as possible, the door opening area is usually quite wide allowing for a generous entrance size. The benefit of this type of shower door over many others is that it can be used in both an alcove and with a full shower enclosure through the use of side panels.

Generous Entry Width

Unlike many inferior shower doors that you have to squeeze in due to poorly positioned hinges; these top quality pivot doors from Plumbworld don’t share such problems. Thanks to cleverly positioned pivoting pins, these doors ensure a generous entry width making the shower accessible to everyone, with no problems whatsoever.

Reliable Quality

All of the pivot shower doors from Plumbworld come with toughened safety glass up to a thickness of 8mm for the ultimate quality and safety in the shower. As well as this, all enclosures feature the highest quality hinges which allow the door to open and close with a silky smooth feel; no judder will ever be encountered. The closing mechanism also ensures a watertight seal which you will be reminded of every time you shut the door thanks to a reassuring sound as the door clicks firmly into place on the frame.

Pivot Door Right For You?

Finding the perfect shower door for your bathroom will depend on several things; dimensions, available space and style. You need to make sure that the area you plan on installing a pivot door in (whether that’s an alcove or full enclosure) is the correct width to fit a door. Doors usually start from 700mm and range up to 1000mm with each being adjustable for walls which aren’t perfectly aligned. After you have found a suitable door to fit, you'll then need to take into account the space in which the door will open in to. If there’s a washbasin in the proximity where the door swings out, you may be better off opting for a sliding or bi-fold door; however, if the area’s clear, the door should be suitable. Whilst shower doors don’t offer much in the way of style, there’s a good chance many of your bathroom fittings will either be white or chrome. As these are the two most common colours of shower doors, you should try and match them accordingly, rather than have a stark white door in a room full of chrome fittings. Door handles should also be considered; some are F-shaped and some are rounded – therefore you should make a decision based upon the styling of the rest of the room.
