Elliptical Door Swing Maximizes Floor Space and
Uses Minimal Hardware to Provide All-Glass Aesthetics



Frameless shower door systems traditionally consist of hinged glass doors with fixed sidelites, or sliding glass doors with a header. Clear Space introduces a new type of system. It utilizes a patent-pending top door guide that produces an industry-first elliptical door swing. This increases usable floor space because the door is drawn inward as it swings open. Clear Space’s unique top door guide automatically folds away from the opening and stacks parallel to the sidewall to provide unobstructed entry.

Door outswing projection is reduced by approximately 45% for a typical 36" wide opening. The additional space gives architects and designers more flexibility when laying out essential bathroom elements. Two elliptical doors can be specified to create a shower entrance up to 72" wide, which improves accessibility. Clear Space’s minimal use of hardware also offers all-glass visuals.

C.R. Laurence developed Clear Space to go beyond the conventional and offer customers a distinctive frameless shower door concept that’s highly versatile, improves function, and keeps pace with emerging design trends.

“Clear Space is a sophisticated shower door system that provides several key benefits in one, easy-to-install package. It maximizes floor space, improves ease of entry, and delivers in-demand, all-glass aesthetics using low-profile hardware,” said Danny Donahue, Brand Manager of Frameless Shower Door Hardware at C.R. Laurence. “This introduces an entirely new system that gives architects more creative flexibility, and end users a beautiful, simple to operate, and space-saving shower enclosure.”

In addition to frameless shower door hardware, C.R. Laurence manufactures curtain walls, storefronts, entrance systems, glass railings, architectural hardware, and office partition systems. To learn more about these and other products, call (800) 421-6144 or visit crlaurence.com.
