Using Polycarbonate Pieces

Polycarbonates materials seal any gaps between glass panels and the surrounding bathroom walls. A standard door must have gaps where it is fitted to the wall. Other gaps might be found at the bottom of the door or on the handle side of the door.

To prevent water from leaking from the bathroom, polycarbonate pieces may be attached at the bottom of the glass door. Water from the bathroom bounces back to the bathroom upon reaching the seal. Information about How to Clean a Frameless Shower Door can be found here.
