    A Single Tub Door Panel has a few options: fixed, hinged or with a pivot. The fixed panel is great for smaller bathrooms as it takes up less space. The hinged and pivot panel types offer more flexibility in terms of access, but require a bit more space for the door to swing open. The fixed panels are exactly as they sound - they are 'unmovable' and do not move. The Pivot or hinged are attached to the wall to swing open so will need a bit of room to use.

     

    There are framed and (semi) frameless doors where the glass bathtub door itself is held by metal clips and not in an enclosed frame such as the Framed shower tub doors. Semi-frameless doors provide a modern look, while still providing strength and stability. They are also easier to clean and maintain than framed doors. Additionally, they are typically less expensive than their framed counterparts.

     

    Hinged or Bypass doors are common configurations for two or more bathtub panel doors. Hinged shower doors for tubs have multiple panels and hinge on one side. Bypass tub doors have two panels staggered on a track like sliding doors. This is so you can enter from either side of the tub.
