ABOUT GLASS DOORS
Glass Doors are available for interior and exterior use. The most common type of interior glass door is the shower door. This may be framed or frameless, and is available in a wide range of shapes, and glass textures. Glass doors, hinged or sliding, may also be used as internal doors within homes and offices. External glass doors include folding doors, which draw back in concertina fashion. These provide the opportunity to open up the whole side of a room to the outdoors.
The leading manufacturers, described below the panel of sponsored links, have comprehensive websites, with information on all aspects, including online catalogs, specifications, materials and finishes.
