A header hinges clamps and track will support the panels of glass. Water proof silicone will seal the glass and the wall on the edges on the glass panel this gives it a watertight seal with a smooth edge that is clear. Frameless shower doors are safe tempered panels of safety glass that can withstand impact. These thick panels of safety glass are usually at least 1/4 inch in thickness the chances of breaking one are pretty slim. If for some reason they were to break you wouldnt have to worry about sharp shards of glass falling or cutting you. When tempered safety glass breaks it separates into small uniformed chunks of glass with smooth edges.

Using a thin framed glass door is completely functional but it doesnt look as finished and high-quality as thicker glass doors do. Another problem with using framed shower doors is that mold and mildew colonies will thrive in the hinges where you cant clean. This will lead to a dirty-looking shower in which you may have to replace the hinges later down the road. If you do decide on a frameless door do your best to keep the frames clean by frequently spraying them with a one part bleach 9 parts water formula. This will help eliminate the microscopic invaders. If you really want your shower to look its best you should consider installing a frameless door for the shower. These doors are free-standing and dont require the support of an aluminum frame.
