Bi Fold Shower Doors: Reasons to Choose one for your Bathroom
There are many reasons why people choose to buy a Bi Fold Shower Door for their bathroom. Most commonly, Bi Fold Shower Doors are chosen for their space-saving benefits. When working with space limitations, a Bi Fold Shower is ideal as it conveniently fits into corners and small bathrooms, without the need of significant space for the door to open. Its clever in-folding door design negates the need for an open-out door space, and saves the inconvenience of resulting water drips.
Bi Fold Shower Door sizes available vary from 700, 760, 800, 900 through to 1000mm, so the amount of space the enclosure occupies can be easily customised to any sized bathroom. Bi Fold Shower frame colours are generally white, silver or chrome with clear glass. The variety of frame options, along with the Bi Fold Shower Door's compact and simple design, allows the enclosure to blend into most bathroom design schemes, large or small.
Some popular suppliers of Bi Fold Shower Door and trays in the UK are Manhattan Showers, April Shower Doors and The London Water Closet Company (LWCC). These distributors' products can be found in local bathroom stores across the UK or bathroom shops online.

There are two main types of shower tray to suit the various Bi Fold Shower Door enclosures: slimline and standard. The minimalist slimline is generally between 40-45mm high and the standard tray is around 100-110mm in height and made of a stone resin mix. Sometimes, it is necessary to source shower trays from the manufacturer of the shower enclosure you choose, as some may require a bespoke tray.
