Dry shower areas ooze of luxury and comfort. To keep your bathrooms dry, you invest in expensive glass shower doors and costly fittings that not only help to keep your spaces dry but also look luxurious and trending. The concept of frameless and framed shower door bottom seals is not quite old. It was invented to give your glass doors a very sleek, un-obstacled and seamless look.

Framed Bottom Seals:
Investing in a new seal for your framed shower door is a good decision if you want to give your shower a makeover. It not only increases the aesthetic beauty of your bathroom but also gives you a very clean, dry and contemporary entrance for your shower. Framed shower doors have a metal frame around the perimeter of the door and a drip rail at the bottom. But the drip rail tends to get spoilt due to repeated water splashes. Replacing the rail seal is an easier job than replacing the entire drip rail and it also works out economically.
Framed shower door seals are also made from vinyl, rubber or polycarbonate like the frameless ones. As each door has a different seal requirement, we have designed various kinds of seals, all with a flexible material. Our framed glass shower door seals are very thin and light in weight. Each one costs $16.95.

How to Measure Glass?
When it comes to measuring framed glass shower doors, you can use our measuring guide. The framed doors have a standard size of 36 inches or smaller. If you are confused about the seal size, you can match your old one with the pictures on our website. Send the pictures to us and we can also match it for you.
Frameless shower glass has standard four different thickness. The ⅜ inches size is the most popular. The other thicknesses are ¼ inches, 5/16 inches and ½ inches. These glasses generally have a tapered edge and so, while measuring, you need to start from the farthest points on each side. The measuring tape also has a metal clip at the end. To avoid errors, always start measuring from 1 or 2 inches and then add accordingly.
We focus on protecting our shower glass seals even while shipping by packing them in crystal clear packaging for easy measurements. We send these products in 7 m plastic sleeves to prevent scratches and the powder coat finish during shipping.
