Sliding Door Shower Enclosures

Sliding Shower Doors, Enclosures & Side Panels

The sliding shower door is without doubt one of the most stunning functional enclosure doors out there and is only made better by its compatibility to fit into both alcoves and full enclosures. As the name suggests, a sliding shower door operates by sliding back and forth thanks to the use of rollers and a long door width. One side of the door slides inside the other half, providing simple functionality and a wide entrance. If you can afford to have a shower enclosure on the larger side but don’t want to compromise space inside or outside of the enclosure, this is the perfect type of door for you.

Easy Entry

Many people prefer a larger shower entrance to a narrow one and with sliding shower doors you get exactly this. Thanks to an innovative and clever design, one half of the door slides next to the other static part and leaves a large area in which you can enter and exit the shower with minimal hassle. In comparison to pivot shower doors, sliding doors usually have a wider berth; however, the widest entry is often provided by frameless or hinged doors.

Reliable Quality

At Plumbworld, only the highest quality shower doors are stocked and sold to ensure customer satisfaction. All shower doors feature toughened safety glass which can reach up to 8mm in thickness, providing the maximum level of safety and durability. Our range of sliding doors have all been rigorously tested for roller wear and water sealing to ensure that they will stand the test of time and still be just as functional in 10 or 20 years time. Due to our unique handpicking process, you can rest assured that our products are not of an inferior quality such as many others on the market. Our range represents the best value for money possible in the bathroom industry – just another way that we’re trying to make stunning bathrooms affordable for everyone.

Simplicity & Functionality

The sliding shower door is arguably the pinnacle of simplicity and functionality without impeding space requirements. It has the simplest yet most elegant function of all doors since it slides parallel to the static door to gain entry to the enclosure. Not only this, but it also doesn’t hinder space inside or outside of the enclosure like many other doors do.

Is A Sliding Shower Door Right For You?

It’s wise to carefully consider your shower door requirements before you go ahead and buy anything. You’ll need to take into account all of the following; measurements, available space and styling for the most informed purchase. Thanks to the intelligent design of the sliding door, you don’t have to worry if you’re fitting it in a full enclosure or an alcove as it will fit both. However, you will need to work out what size door you need by measuring the size of your enclosure – the range of sliding doors typically starts at 1000mm and ranges to 1600mm. All doors offer some adjustment for bathroom walls that aren’t completely aligned, thus ensuring a watertight seal. The sliding nature of the door also means that you don’t require any available space outside the shower enclosure for the door to open into; providing much more space for other bathroom fittings. Now you can focus on style. The majority of sliding doors at Plumbworld come in a chrome or white finish to complement your current bathroom fittings. Handle designs also vary, but again, match these to suit the style of your bathroom and you can’t go far wrong. Thanks to our comprehensive range, the bathroom of your dreams is just a few clicks away.
