We may be biased here at Adelaide Shower Screens, but when it comes to enclosing your shower, we reckon glass is the best choice. It’s also very popular. One style in particular is gaining in popularity and that’s glass sliding shower screens.

In this blog, we’ll explain why glass sliding shower screens are widely chosen and look at some of their key benefits.

Glass sliding shower screens – clearly a great choice

One of the key reasons for the growth in popularity of glass sliding shower screens is that they’re often ideal in compact bathrooms. With a steady shift towards medium and high-density housing, inevitably, bathrooms across Adelaide and Australia are shrinking.

While pivoting, hinged doors and no door, walk-in showers are excellent choices, when space is limited, they may not be practical. This is where glass sliding shower screens come to the fore, as they will work in any bathroom, no matter how big or small.

Like other glass screens, glass sliding shower screens are sleek and contemporary. They’re also practical, easy to clean and require little maintenance to keep them in tip-top shape.

Here are several reasons why glass sliding shower screens are a top choice:

Limited Space

The key reason that people often choose glass sliding shower screens, as we’ve highlighted above, is space limitations. In bathrooms that are too small for a walk-in shower or where pivot or hinged doors would hit the vanity, toilet or other item in the bathroom, a sliding door will be the perfect choice.

Easy to keep clean

While not as easy to clean as a pivot, hinged and no-door showers, glass sliding shower screens are still relatively easy to keep spotless.
Like all other glass shower screens, the transparent nature of glass allows natural light to penetrate, creating a brighter and more inviting shower space. This not only enhances the overall ambience but also contributes to a more energy-efficient and sustainable bathroom environment.

Elegant & sophisticated

Glass sliding shower screens also exude a sense of elegance and sophistication, instantly elevating the aesthetic appeal of any Adelaide bathroom. The transparency of glass creates a seamless and open feel, contributing to a visually spacious and airy atmosphere.

Range of styles

Glass sliding shower screens provide choice and flexibility across a range of styles and finishes. This allows you to choose a style of finish to suit your space, budget and taste.

Safety glass

Like all shower screens sourced and installed by reputable providers, glass sliding shower screens are constructed from toughened safety glass, ensuring longevity and resistance to breakage.

Easier access for the mobility-challenged

The sliding door mechanism enhances accessibility, making it easier for individuals with mobility challenges or those using mobility aids to enter and exit the shower space. The absence of a swinging door, particularly in compact bathrooms, allows for a more accessible and user-friendly shower experience.

Draw backs?

Are there any drawbacks of glass sliding shower screens? Apart from cleaning, listed above, the other thing to consider is that these screens have more moving parts than pivot and hinged doors. This means there is more that can go wrong.

However, with a little attention to the rollers, tracks and other parts of the sliding door, your glass sliding shower screens will give you many years of no-fuss use.

An occasional cleaning of the moving parts and the use of silicone spray is all that’s generally required to keep your sliding screens looking and working like new.
