If your old shower door is cloudy or has water spots inside the glass you can’t get out no matter how hard you try, you know the negative impacts of hard water on glass shower doors.
Hard water causes spots. Your door looks terrible.
However, the good news is you don’t have to be a slave to your squeegee and constantly cleaning your shower doors. Simplify your life with factory applied AquaGlide glass surface protection. You’ll see water beading off your shower glass like using wax on your car or RainX on your windshield.
This small investment saves hours of cleaning and keeps shower glass doors brighter and clearer.
Well – the short answer is both doors make sense, depending on your goals.
If you want a lower cost shower door which seals best around the door and is lighter to install (because the glass is generally thinner), the framed shower door will be best.
On the other hand, if you want more light in the shower (because there’s less framing), a better view of your wall panels or tile and a glass system which is simpler to clean and a more contemporary look, the frameless glass shower door is better.
To learn the specific factors to decide which door is best for you read our blog post, “How to Compare Sliding vs. Pivoting Glass Shower Doors.”
If you – or a member of your family – has limited mobility you should look into a zero-threshold sliding glass shower door or create a walk in shower with fixed shower glass or a shower screen. The key will be to have an opening which is not only larger but doesn’t have obstructions you’ll need to navigate when entering.
The majority of glass shower door sold are made with clear glass. See through glass is most popular because it costs less than obscure glass, it’s best to see stylish shower wall panels or custom tile patterns and it can make the shower feel bigger. The advantages of obscure glass are you’ll have more privacy and it’s harder to see spotting on the glass.
Just like you’ll apply RainX to your car for the water to bead off, it’s a smart investment to use a factory applied glass surface protection (called AquaGlide XP) to the glass to provide a shield against dirt build up and help water will bead off the glass. In addition, to keep the glass in pristine condition, a Cleret squeegee is a smart tool to use.
It’s recommended to wait 24 hours after the shower door is installed (and the silicone sealant has had time to cure) before using the shower.

Ask your Innovate Shower Specialist to send you specific installation instructions for the model(s) of shower doors you’re considering.
The reason most ‘standard’ frameless glass shower doors look so green is the iron oxide in the sand used to make the glass throws off a greenish hue. If you want a clearer glass door (which more closely resembles crystal) with 10% better light transmission, ask about ‘low iron’ (pure clear) glass.
Yes. No matter what type of shower door you choose they can be paired with custom tile shower walls or grout free shower wall panels.
As a generality framed shower doors (with the thinnest glass) are cheapest, semi-frameless systems are mid-priced, and full frameless (with the thickest glass doors) are most expensive.
Since frameless glass shower doors need to be more precise (because there is little to no framing around the edges), they’re best measured after the tile walls or grout free shower surround is installed.
