Glass in itself is a very beautiful and unusual material in properties. Therefore, even the simplest glass doors for a shower will be much more practical and prettier than plastic, wood or metal. Ease of use can be estimated by the design of glass showers, the practicality of glass can not be overestimated:

1. Mineral glass will retain its pristine shape and transparency even after a hundred years;

2. Shower doors on a polymer basis, plastic or wooden, are deformed and become unusable due to hot water and regular use of detergents;

3. Due to technological features, the shower room is always arranged in a separate space, the glass door leaf allows you to add daylight, thereby eliminating unsafe fixtures in a humid environment;

4. A flat glass door surface provides normal protection against flying drops.

 A glass door is an absolutely inert material, on its surface there is not even a hint of conditions for the development of pathogenic microflora. Even if you use daily sanitary means, any noticeable change in the appearance of the door leaf made of glass will not happen in a couple of years.

Glass also has its drawbacks.
Transparent glass door structures are an excellent indicator of cleanliness and order in the shower. Drops of hot water and a condensate film, drying up, leave marks on a transparent surface. Any water in the water supply carries a certain amount of dissolved salts, leaving traces on the glass. Therefore, an absolutely transparent glass door to the shower will require processing with special compounds that prevent wetting and sticking of water drops to the glass.

Sometimes the glass surface is sealed with an anti-wetting polymer film, which guarantees a long-lasting purity effect for several months. In addition, it is believed that the film increases the level of safety of handling glass, even with a very strong blow in the shower on the glass surface there will be no fragments.
