Most doors are made from safety glass which will most likely not break and even if it does it will break into pieces that are not sharp enough to hurt you. Glass has however a fair amount of advantages. Its look is unmatched and the effort necessary to keep it clean is tiny compared to all the other materials. The only downside glass has compared to plastic or similar materials is its price which is like 30%-50% above the price of plastic shower doors. Clear Or Frosted Glass? This is more or less a matter of taste. There are a couple of things to consider.
The first and most important thing you have to take into account is how bright your shower stall will be if you use frosted glass. It takes away a fair amount of light and that is something that can end up creating a fairly claustrophobic environment in your shower enclosure. If there is a light right above your shower you will most likely be fine with frosted glass as well. If there is not you might have to consider using clear glass. There is also a possibility to use a combination of frosted and clear glass. This combination usually consists of frosted glass up to around head height and continues with clear glass above it. This way a lot of light can enter your shower stall and you still experience some privacy.

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.
