Folding Bathtub Doors

Shower curtains block light and build up mold and mildew, giving your bathroom a dank, potentially dangerous atmosphere. Folding bathtub doors are a modern alternative to shower curtains.

For those looking for a sophisticated space-saving option for their bathroom, a folding bathtub door is an excellent choice that minimizes the clearance needed around the shower. A folding door is also easier to clean than the classic sliding door model. 

They can transform your bathroom and have versatile installation layouts. Swapping out a rod and shower curtain for a folding glass door instantly upgrades your bathroom turning your bathroom into a home spa. 

When considering folding shower doors for bathtubs, look for water and rust-resistant models. A few other simple but convenient features to look for are rubber gaskets along the bottom of the glass, support bars, and handles. Here are ten of the best folding bathtub doors to add some privacy to your bathroom.

What we like: Limited lifetime manufacturer warranty

What we don’t like: Not suitable for installation on a curved bathtub

This frameless hinged model is a 48" wide and 58" high bathtub door. It’s a fairly wide door that contains water inside the tub space. This is a good option for smaller bathrooms where a sliding door won’t work. It can be installed on any bathroom as long as the design of the tub isn’t curved.

With thick certified tempered glass and anodized aluminum, this is a durable door. The door has a unique curved silhouette and an extender panel that provides extra splash cover. Overall, if you are looking for folding shower doors for tubs, this is an excellent choice.

The factory-applied glass coating comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty for your peace of mind.

The heavy-duty brushed nickel hardware is unobtrusive yet extremely durable, and the bi-fold bathtub doors feature out-of-plumb adjustment, allowing you to level the doors easily. 

Another special feature of this tub door is its height. It measures 78", which is significantly higher than their competitors. This extra height provides a unique style and makes it suitable for bathrooms with high ceilings or low-profile bathtubs.

What we like: Allows for wide entry space with bi-fold screen

What we don’t like: Hardware provided is soft and strips easily

The frameless hinged tub door is a top choice among folding shower doors for its ultra-lux glass coating, which creates a long-lasting shield on the glass that repels water and contaminants. This coating helps the door avoid staining and mineral build-up, making it the ideal choice for homes in areas with a high water hardness level.

Look for a tub door that has a shatter retention safety film on the glass. This safety film is bonded on the panels and holds all the fragments in place in the case of breakage. This provides protection in case of an accident.

Our advice Buying Guide

Folding bathtub doors can be the difference between mopping water up off the bathroom floor after every shower and having a dry floor – other than a few drips. But that isn’t the only reason for purchasing them for your bathroom. Folding bathtub doors can be incredibly attractive, adding something positive to the appearance of your bathroom.

What different designs of folding bathtub doors are there?

Three Panels of Tempered Safety Glass

Imagine three panels of tempered safety glass with rounded corners and polished chrome hinges. They make a very nice touch for a modern bathroom, perfect to go with a modern bath that already has chrome fixtures. The door keeps the water in the bath where it belongs, not all over your floor.

Translucent Solid Door

A three-panel translucent solid door, intended for use with either a bath or a shower, runs floor to ceiling or from the lip of the tub to ceiling creating a good barrier between the spray from a shower head and the rest of the bathroom. As long as privacy is not an issue, this is an excellent choice for any bathroom.

Folding Panel Shower or Bath Door

If privacy is an issue, the folding panel shower or bath door can be opaque white. While not as secure as the solid door, it is a quick, effective choice to pull around a bath or shower stall. Drips can be combatted by placing the bottom of the door inside the bathtub.

Tinted Translucent Shower Door with Floral Design

Enjoy a little subtle beauty with a green-tinted translucent shower door with a delicate floral design. It has the same sturdy construction as other shower doors, keeping the water in the tub, not on the adjacent floor area.

Narrow Panel

A narrow panel tempered glass folding shower curtain, without the bottom guide track is perfect for the bath and shower person who likes to sit on the edge of the tub to get in and out. Narrow panels are also easily fit into a small bathroom. Ideal for retrofitting older bathrooms where you want to preserve the general appearance of the tub. If added privacy is desired, a ceiling to floor cloth curtain could be added outside the tub.

Opaque White Folding Shower Door

Love the idea of a folding shower door, but are just not ready for that panel of glass? An opaque white folding shower door combines convenience with privacy – almost an absolute must in a family bathroom that is the only facility in the house. Add a caddy inside the shower/tub area for shampoos and soaps, and you are all set.

Trackless Barrier Free Shower and Tub Door

Ideal for providing wheelchair access to walking tubs or showers. Trackless barrier-free shower and tub doors fold out of the way toward both sides of the facility. No track means no floor bumps for easy accessibility. One more way to help someone maintain independence.
