Shower Glass FAQs


  1. What is the standard height of shower glass?
    A common shower enclosure height is 78” above the curb, which typically works out to the top of the class being approximately 7ft from the floor. This height will allow for ventilation while still keeping the glass, well above the shower head.

  2. What side should the shower door be installed?
    A shower door is usually hinged on the same side as the shower hardware to allow for easy access to the controls while protecting you from the water spray.

  3. Do I have to have a shower door?
    No, it is possible to create a doorless shower enclosure depending on the design, direction of water spray, and size.

  4. How long does shower glass installation take?
    Typically, we can install your new shower glass within 2-4 hours and your shower will be ready for use the very next day!
