What is a Neo Angle Shower Door? - A neo angle shower enclosure is another type of corner shower door. It has three glass sides and two wall enclosures, creating a beautiful diamond shape. The neo angle shower essentially looks like a corner shower door with the front corner sliced off. The walls can be many combinations of full, half, and glass sides, making this type of shower one of our most versatile.
Pro Tip for Neo Angle Shower Enclosures: Shower Door Angles - Your neo angle shower enclosure will be created using 135° angles where the glass meets at the front of the shower, and 90° everywhere else. This little tidbit of information is useful in making sure your shower door fits together perfectly!
The width of a neo angle shower door can normally range between 22" and 36". Typically the door cannot be wider than 36” because of the building codes. If you do need it to be wider, we will typically add a glass panel to make up the difference of the size needed.
The height of your shower enclosure can be a maximum of 96" tall. A common size for your neo angle shower enclosure will be around 72” tall. The maximum height of the door depends on the width and relates to the overall weight of the final product.
