Improve the impression of your shower area with Bi-Fold Shower Doors

Bi-fold shower doors are those which fold with a hinge in one place, creating two panels. The mean width of a tub or shower stall is 48 inches in total, the same as the average width of a tub or shower stall. They rest on a track at the top and bottom of the tub or bathroom stall, and when opened all the way, they fold up into around 4 inches of space on either side of the track.

Substitute for the curtains 

Bi-fold doors are commonly used as a substitute for shower curtains or sliding doors in bathrooms or basement areas. When open, the sliding form takes up more room since they will still take up 24 inches each when open, while bi-fold shower doors only take up around 4 inches when open. For those with mobility or weight problems, this leaves more open areas for a person to navigate into the shower room, and this can be significant. Bi-fold bathroom shower door prices will differ depending on materials, finishes, methods of installation, and glass types.

Glass thickness matters

The installation of these in the bathroom is provided by several specialist companies. Accordion-style, magnetic enclosures, framed and frameless versions, and various glass colours and styles are options. Different depths are available for the glass used for all shower doors: 1/4-inch, 1/8 inch, and 3/8 inch. Note that we make all shower doors of safety glass, so it does not mean that it is better simply because the door is thicker. In effect, they are all made the same, and the safety glass from which the requirement allows them to be made must pass the same inspection, regardless of the thickness. But you will still get the same protection rating if you cannot afford the thicker glass.

From colonial glass and transparent glass to bevelled glass, frosted, and even smoked glass, the glass used in bi-fold shower doors varies. It is possible to find and use mirrored glass, but it is obsolete, and so many homeowners do not use this material. Updating your bathroom by removing your double fold shower doors will add up to $1,100 to your home’s equity. So, for years to come, we can see the small investment made now in the home.

Complement with sliding design 

Framed bi-fold doors look like the sliding kind, except that when opened, they compress down into around 4 inches in width instead of making them slide over and take up 24 inches. At the top and bottom of the area, frameless shower doors still have the same track but are not framed with metal around the glass like what they see in other framed versions. This does not mean that the seal is not there, as we would show the sealant used to build the invisible bond to you by several professionals. There is no more chance of water escaping from frameless doors when the doors are closed completely than there is with framed doors.

Bi-Fold Shower Doors from the Royal bathrooms

The bi-fold shower door is an excellent way for a king-size shower room to be built. The problem when you get to shower in a small-sized apartment in the bathroom is that you must be very careful about the splashing of water so that you do not spill all over the place. The bi-fold shower door allows two L-shaped doors to be made that can be joined to form a cubicle. To allow it to open from either end, we could fit every side of the cubicle with a roller.
