Your bathroom is an extension of your personality. It is the ideal way to express yourself
and reveal your own unique style. Choosing the perfect fixtures and fittings for your bathroom
is therefore paramount. You need to select the ideal shower and tub enclosures, and the
best hardware to match your taste. AllGlass MD offers designs that showcase the timeless
beauty of glass. Modernize your bathroom today with the openness and transparency that is unique to glass shower doors & glass shower enclosures. There are many different styles to choose from that will add a sleek touch to your bathroom, including framed, semi-framed,
and frameless options.
Proper slope on your shower threshold or curb is imperative when planning the installation of a frameless shower door. We install frameless showers with the least amount of metal and seals to keep the glass looking clean. When installed correctly, water will shed down the glass door, land on the sloped tiled curb and shed towards the drain and not onto your bathroom floor. Remember that water will travel in the path of least resistance.
*Thresholds should be slanted inward at a 5-degree 1/4" pitch or slope so water flows toward the drain.
Making sure that your shower installation goes smoothly is our first priority. And since the shower glass is the last piece of your bathroom to get installed, it is important that you are set up for success. We want to help you keep the issues at bay and the costs down. We suggest that you review these with your contractor, so that together, you can be sure your shower installation goes off without a hitch.
