I would like to have glass around my square-ish shower (90cm × 100cm) in bathroom corner. It should only consist of two pieces:
- the fixed wall (100cm wide)
- door (90cm)
But instead of swinging doors opening inwards/outwards I'd like doors to swing-slide open inwards.
Looking from top down doors would open this way:
Benefits of such door mechanism:
- easy shower access - door never in the way
- water dripping off the doors goes inside shower
- full width door without any wall side fixed glass
I would like to know if anyone has seen this kind of mechanism. I know how such mechanism should work but I don't know whether it's possible to buy it anywhere. I expect doors to be top hung (6mm toughened glass would weight somewhere around 30kg) with a slide running at the top side on the wall for the doors to open correctly. The main problem there may be is the weight of glass but I suppose it could be done without additional bottom support.
Would I have to contract someone to create such mech for me or is it possible to buy it anywhere? Or maybe somebody has already seen such product somewhere?
