Pivot Shower Doors

If you’re turning a recess or alcove into a shower, selecting the right type of shower door is crucial. For many people, the right type of shower door is a pivot shower door.

Pivot shower doors (often also known as hinged shower doors), function in the same way as the doors in the rest of your home. They swing outwards on a set of pivots positioned at the top and bottom of the shower door.

Because of the way they function, pivot doors make it incredibly easy to get in and out of a shower. They are also easy to clean and maintain and offer an elegant and sleek alternative to other types of shower door.

Pivot shower doors are also available in ‘reversible’ models, meaning they can be used in shower alcoves where you want to open the door from the left or the right of the showering space.

Here at Royal Bathrooms you’ll find a wide range of great-value, high-quality pivot shower doors, with different widths, glass thicknesses, and prices available.

With free delivery on orders over £399.00, a minimum 5% discount, and a 365-day exchange policy there’s no better place to create a pivot shower enclosure than Royal Bathrooms!

Pivot Shower Doors Buying Guide

Pivot shower doors are a very popular type of shower door; you’ll find them on pivot shower enclosures in homes right across the UK.
They’re both elegant and practical, adding the perfect aesthetic touch to shower cubicles, whilst also being robust, long-lasting and easy to clean and maintain.
But we know that buying a shower door can be a challenge. There are so many options and configurations to choose from. So the Royal Bathrooms team has set out their top pivot shower doors buying tips below.

What is a pivot shower door?

A pivot shower door is a door which is typically used to create a showering space from a three-sided alcove.
Pivot shower doors function in the same way as a regular door, opening outwards from the shower enclosure on a set of pivots. These pivots are normally situated at the top and bottom of the pivot shower door.
Pivot shower doors are incredibly versatile and can fit almost any bathroom space. It’s worth noting however, that pivot shower doors do swing out into your bathroom space. So, if you have quite a small bathroom, it may be preferable to buy a sliding shower door or bi-fold shower door instead.

What is the difference between hinge and pivot shower doors?

Although pivot doors are sometimes referred to as hinged shower doors, they are in fact different types of shower door.
A pivot shower door uses pivots situated at the top and bottom of the shower door to open and close.
Hinged shower doors use hinges which are normally affixed on the side of the shower door. In this way, hinged shower doors are very similar to the regular doors that you find throughout your home.

What size pivot shower doors are there?

As a very popular type of shower door, pivot shower doors are available in a wide range of different sizes.
So, whether you have a large, spacious shower alcove, or a small shower cubicle, you’ll be able to find a pivot shower door that’s a suitable size.

At Royal Bathrooms, we stock pivot shower doors in the following widths:

  • 700mm
  • 760mm
  • 800mm
  • 900mm
  • 1000mm

How to buy the right size pivot shower door

If you want to buy the correct size shower door for your shower enclosure, then it’s important that you measure the width of your shower tray.
This will provide you with the size of shower door that you need to purchase.

So, for example, if your shower tray is 900mm wide, then you’ll need to buy a pivot shower door which is 900mm wide.

Which way should a pivot shower door open?

The way in which your shower door opens will depend on the configuration of your shower enclosure.
Here at Royal Bathrooms, we stock ‘reversible’ pivot shower doors. This means that they can be installed to open on either the left hand side or the right hand side of the shower enclosure.

This makes them incredibly versatile and suitable for almost any bathroom.

Pivot shower door glass

When selecting a pivot shower door for your bathroom, it’s important that you select a door which is manufactured from high-quality and compliant safety glass.
All of our pivot shower doors here at Royal Bathrooms are manufactured from CE and BS EN 12150 approved thermally toughened safety glass.

This glass is exceptionally safe and can withstand significant stresses and strains.

Pivot shower door glass thickness

As well as ensuring that your pivot shower door is manufactured from the right type of glass, you’ll also need to think about the thickness of the glass.
Thicker glass creates a substantial and quality-feeling shower enclosure, however due to the added weight, this can make it harder to open and close the shower door for some people.

We know that glass thickness is very much a personal preference so we offer a number of options of glass thickness. Choose from 5mm or 6mm thick pivot shower doors at Royal Bathrooms.

Pivot shower door magnetic door seals

To create a truly elegant shower enclosure, you’ll want to buy a pivot shower door which features magnetic seals.
Magnetic seals not only ensure that your pivot shower door will close properly (and stay closed), but they also eliminate the need for unsightly catches or latches.

At Royal Bathrooms we offer a range of pivot shower doors featuring magnetic door seals.

Pivot shower door maintenance and cleaning

Thanks to the way they function, pivot shower doors are incredibly easy to clean and maintain.
As they open outwards into the floorspace of your bathroom, pivot shower doors can be cleaned with ease.

To keep your pivot shower door in top condition, you’ll need a sponge, some glass cleaning spray and a towel or microfibre cleaning cloth.
Begin by spraying a light coating of the glass cleaner over the shower door. Allow it to settle and soak in for several minutes.

Once the glass cleaner has soaked into the shower door, scrub it from top to bottom using the sponge. It’s best to clean in a circular motion so that you can really agitate and loosen up any grime or dirt that may be present on the glass.
Once you’re satisfied that you’ve scrubbed the shower door sufficiently, rinse it with fresh water from the shower head. Finally, dry the shower door using your dry towel or microfibre cloth. This will leave your shower door looking sparkling clean and as good as new!
