half shower doors

Looks like an accident waiting to happen to me.  Okay if your in a wheelchair, but if your fully ambulatory then if you have a slip, then fall into the small 3 foot glass wall, and then get flipped over it and onto your noggin.  I would rather either use a shower curtain, or go with a full size glass enclosure with a door.

 Neither of the above, just an open shower, but then again our bathrooms are the size of a standard bedroom, less maintenance and shower curtains sticking to you.

 

Only thing you have to be careful of is if you have young kids, as I recall I was washing my hair one morning in the shower and I heard this huge scream from my 2 year old who managed to open the bedroom door and then the bathroom door, saw dad starkers and ran off screaming to her mother, I quickly rinsed the shampoo off my head, put a towel around me and walked out to see what all the commotion was, the wife laughing hysterically, my daughter looking at me with a strange look, the wife then says, apparently daddy has a snake on his body down there..........LOL

Anyone ever seen these half size shower doors for sale in LOS.

I've googled until finger cramp set in.

The fittings are available from Häfele, you would go to one of the glass companies who will order toughened glass in the size you wish

Buy the fittings before ordering the glass as you will need any penetrations made  and rounding the edges done before the toughening process as that will be done by the glass producer. As an alternative if you can get it laminated with 0.38mm PVB then you can have a wider choice of colours and thickness. Paragraph
 

if I were wanting that job done I would make the panels out of the correct thickness of plywood with holes in the correct places so that you can take them to the company that you’re ordering glass from to make sure that they are exactly the correct size.
 

Your sizes need to be measured in millimetres, this is how the sizes for our house windows were measured and sent to the glass manufacturer.

Actually, it just dawned on me that your pic probably shows glass pool fencing...

Ive never had the chance to go to any of the big Thai hardware stores, but here in Australia, Bunnings have them sitting on the shelf, glass, mounting brackets, the lot.

Thanks for shedding light onto this.
