Frameless Shower & Tub Enclosures
Customized Frameless Enclosures for Every Style Home
Portland Glass offers custom frameless shower enclosures that will enhance the design of your bathroom while adding function and aesthetic appeal that reflects your personal style. We work with Surrounds by SIGCO, which is the distinguished glass and architectural metal fabricator and distributor in the Northeast. Our secure enclosures last for years due to the combination of high-quality glass and superior hardware. We offer a wide variety of design options, so no matter what you’re looking for, we’re confident we can create a truly unique shower.
Some of the most popular styles and configurations we create include:
- Doors—The single door is the most common option for openings that are less than 36” wide.
- Door Panels—A stationary panel alongside the door may be necessary for openings wider than 36”, and there may be a panel on one or both sides of the door. The hinging may be wall-to-glass or glass-to-glass depending on the configuration.
- Door and dog-legs—Showers with a knee wall or seat require a door with a smaller or notched side panel.
- Neo-corners—Neo-corners are enclosures with panels that do not make a 90-degree angle. They are usually corner enclosures and require head support for mechanical strength.
Clear Glass & Starphire
We offer several glass options for our custom enclosures, including our standard clear glass, which is available in 3/8” and ½”. This is a great choice for customers who are looking for a classic appearance.
Starphire glass is a great option because, due to its low iron content, it decreases the green tint that you often find with standard clear glass. Available in 3/8” and ½”, it allows more light to pass through and displays the true color of your shower.
Another alternative to clear glass is rain glass. This is a great option if you want to obscure what’s behind the glass but still want light to shine through. The acid etch offers a frosted look to your windows and has a raised pattern that provides texture and offers privacy. Its low iron content means more clarity than standard glass.
If you’re looking to keep your shower glass clean and prevent water and mineral buildup, ShowerGuard glass is a great option. This low-maintenance product is applied during the manufacturing process and is permanent, so it doesn’t need to be reapplied over time.
If you’re looking for an alternative low-maintenance product, ClearShield is a polymeric coating that is applied at the end of the glass production process and can be applied to any type of glass.
