We are now offering the best of both worlds with our new hybrid designs. They feature the economy of a semi-frameless with the style of a frameless enclosure. We accomplish this by using a thinner 1/4" thick frameless door with a through-the-door handle supported by a continuous hinge. Then we pair this with a 3/8" thick heavy glass so that you do not need a metal header across the top of the unit, nor do you have a metal post in the middle. A high-end look without the high-end price! Note that this design only works when your shower needs a door and an panel that are in a line.
