Pivoting shower doors use a pivot point either at the top and bottom of the door or in some cases the side of the door that allows the door to swing outward allowing access to the shower area. They are sometimes referred to as swinging shower doors and like sliding shower doors are designed to be installed on the shower pan or tile apron.
If a home features a common size shower enclosure ranging from 27 to 36-inches, a Delta® pivoting door can be used with great results. A custom enclosure needs may require specialized designs and sizes.
A key difference for selecting a pivoting shower door is ability for the door to operate like a regular door unlike a sliding or bypass shower door. Depending on the layout of the bathroom, proximity to other fixtures in the bathroom like toilets and pedestal lavatories, a pivoting door may be a preferred door type.
