Replacing your old shower door can make a big difference to the look and functionality of your shower. There are 2 main different types of hinge shower doors available depending on the style of door that you desire.

Which hinge door is best suited for your bathroom depends primarily on the space you have available in your bathroom and how you want your new shower door to look.

Hinge Shower Door

The Hinged Shower Door is a glass shower panel that swings open in one direction like a typical door. The door hinge can be attached to a stationary glass panel or to the wall or shower surround (as shown in the image provided).

The hinge shower door is a perfect choice if you want a large entry into your new shower as they open up fully to allow you the full entry width of the shower.

Pivot Shower Door

The other type of hinged shower door is a Pivot Shower Door. A Pivot shower door is similar to the hinge shower door in that it is a single glass shower panel that opens by swinging open, the majority of time, in one direction.

Pivots consist of metal sleeves that fit around the top and bottom of the shower door. These sleeves connect the door to a metal rod, or pivot, so require a frame of some form so that the pivot hinges can be held in place both above and below the shower door.

Like the hinge shower door it will require a bit of space to open the door but not quite as much, because the pivot hinge is positioned a certain distance in from the edge of the door. This means that some of the door will swing inwards whilst the majority of the door will open outwards.
