frameless shower door hardware in modern showerWhile frameless shower door enclosures are primarily glass, they still require some hardware. You’ll be able to incorporate your aesthetic into the hardware for your shower by choosing specific types of hardware and the finishes you prefer. Frameless shower door hardware includes handles, hinges, and clips/u-channels.

Shower Door Handles

Frameless shower door handles come in a variety of designs, from simple to elaborate. The simpler ones include C-pull style, square, and ladder handles. These are sleek and modern, and are great for anyone looking for a minimalist design. Some of the more complex and elaborate designs work great for a bathroom that draws its design from more classic roots.

Apollo handles and Victorian handles derive from classic European design and make for a more elaborate aesthetic.

Shower Hinges and Clips

There are a number of different hinges that you may end up using for your shower. These come in different shapes and will depend on the type of shower door that you choose. While you can decide between rounded, square, or minimalist shapes, part of your choice is dependent upon the shower door enclosure that you have.

You’ll also need to make a decision between clips and u-channels. Clips make your shower look truly frameless. They connect your glass door to a panel or the ground and mount directly to the shower glass. U-channels, on the other hand, appear to make a very slim frame on the bottom of the glass.


Finally, the finish on your hardware really sets the look for your new frameless shower. Three of our most popular options for finishes include:

  • Brushed Nickel
  • Polished Chrome
  • Oil Rubbed Bronze

These finishes apply to all of your frameless shower door hardware, from hinges to handles. We offer more than just the finishes above, as well, but these are often the most popular.
