Steam Shower Layout Guide
 

Use this page to identify the correct style of your unit. There are two primary terms, style and layout, used to describe a steam shower door configuration. The Style number, Style 1 through Style 6, refers to the number of panels of glass. For example Style 1 has only a door, where Style 2 has a door and one fixed panel. The layout letter refers to configuration of the panels. Find the picture below that best matches your unit. Click the image to reach the estimator/order work sheet.
