Traditional Bipass vs Sliding Barn Door:
Due to the sliding motion of both types of enclosures they will not impede on the usable floor space, however, as with any glass enclosure, there may be more upkeep involved. The traditional bipass is more versatile in points of entry, as both doors slide for access. Whereas the barn door has one stationary panel and one sliding panel. Traditional bypass sliding doors being fully framed prevent water escape. As a result of the frameless design of the barn door there is a possibility of water trickling out.
The traditional bipass is available in standard sizes; however the 1000 Series frameless enclosure is custom fit to virtually any shower or bathtub opening. The 1000 Series also brings an aesthetic point of interest and customization to your washroom.
Whether you are seeking clean, sleek architecture and elegant design or classic appearance and functionality, the 1000 Series demonstrates adaptability to both Traditional and Modern architecture.
