What Is A Trackless Shower Door?

Trackless shower doors are a type of shower door that utilizes minimal hardware, such as a rolling system, to suspend the door from above and open or close it using only guides at the bottom. The upper support bar is typically attached to the outer walls or edges of the enclosure, and the door itself is often made of a lighter weight glass or hollow core polycarbonate.

Advantages Of Trackless Shower Doors

Trackless shower doors are an excellent alternative to standard sliding shower doors and have become increasingly popular with homeowners in recent years.

Easier To Use

Trackless doors present a clean, unobstructed appearance and allow you to enter the shower without having to step on or over any metal hardware. The lightweight panel enables the door to open and close with minimal effort, which is helpful to those with limited mobility or physical challenges.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

One of the most significant advantages of a trackless glass shower door is that it can help keep the enclosure clean and free of mold and mildew. A typical shower curtain, for example, attracts a variety of unsanitary elements, including dirt or even tiny organisms. When the curtains are wet, they can cling together and sometimes start to produce mold and mildew. Yuck!

By comparison, the glass panels on a trackless system attract none of these elements and are very low maintenance. Just use standard household glass cleaners from time to time and even soap scum and streaking will be kept to a minimum.

Glass protection or coating, such as Diamon-Fusion, is always recommended since this greatly reduce the need to clean your shower glass even further.
