A Glass Shower Door Will Make a Great Addition to Any Bathroom

Are you sick and tired of that old shower curtain in your bathroom? Does it smell? Is it laden with mold causing bacteria that can only make you and the entire household sick? Are you interested in making your wash space and along with the whole bathroom a cleaner, mold free environment while at the same time making a fashion statement and adding a significant value to your home? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then what you need is a shower screens or Enclosure.

Instead what it uses are Brackets and Door Hinges along with silicone to hold the Glass Shower up in its place.
