Beside this, how thick should the glass be in shower?
The Basics of Shower Glass Thickness The minimum thickness that is necessary for the stability and overall soundness of the glass door is 3/8″. Going with a minimum thickness for your shower glass door has become a popular choice because it is less expensive than thicker glass.
Additionally, what is the standard size of a shower door? In general, the width of a shower door should be between 22 inches and 36 inches. If the width is longer than 36 inches, you may have to include an extra panel to the door to support the weight of the structure.
Simply so, how do you measure the thickness of a glass door?
Use the glass measurement gauge on a single pane of glass as follows:
- Place the tool on the corner of a piece of glass.
- Press the red button and hold down.
- View the screen from a 45-degree angle.
- Check the first laser line is on the zero line of the scale and the second laser line will show the glass thickness.
