When you decide to upgrade your bathroom with a glass shower door, there are three types of door from which you can choose.

Bypass Glass Shower Doors

Bypass shower doors have been around for some time, and they remain a popular space-friendly option. A system like this will have two door panels that move by sliding on small rollers in side-by-side metal tracks.

This means that they can be built from slightly thinner glass than frameless enclosures, which in turn means that they typically cost less.
