Terms to Know

frameless shower enclosure is attached with hinges only. It’s all glass, all the time.

semi-frameless shower enclosure uses metal around the entire structure, but not the door itself. Any enclosure that can do framed or frameless can do semi-frameless.

framed shower enclosure has metal around the structure and door, providing maximum stability.

swing door enclosure is when the door swings out for you to step in and out of the shower. A great way to add an elegant, minimalist feel to your bathroom.

sliding door enclosure slides the door open, giving you a sleek design that doesn’t take up space. Cardinal’s ultra smooth V-shaped wheels make opening and closing the door a snap.

Glass comes in three main thicknesses, often referred to as heavy (usually in frameless), regular (mostly in semi-frameless and frameless), and thin glass (framed only). Thickness depends on what your bathroom can support, preferred look of the shower enclosure or door, and price point.
