  1. Choose shower or tub door.

  2. Choose your configuration: Do you want a corner unit (neo angle, square, wedge, round) or against the wall (in-line, 2 or 3-sided, roman).

  4. Choose door type: Sliding doors are made of two overlapping glass panels that hang from a header and slide along a bottom track. Those doors are ideal for installation on larger shower openings. Pivot (swinging) doors swing open into the room like a traditional door. Those doors are ideal for small and large shower spaces and provide versatile right or left-hand opening enclosures for multiple configurations.

  5. Select frame design

  8. Select a finish Fleurco doors are offered in a selection of finishes depending of the model: chrome, ultra chrome, brushed and polished stainless and nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, bright brass, white.

  9. Select a glass: All Fleurco doors are made of tempered glass and are available in clear, mist, Paris Point, Aqualite, prism, raindrop for certain models.
