Abstract: A hinge assembly comprises a pair of continuous extruded channel members, one of which has an axially aligned tubular portion and the other an axially aligned keyway. The members are united by hinge clips having a leg insertable in the keyway and a gudgeon plate having an opening depending from the leg, and a hinge pin which passes through the gudgeon plate opening and the tubular portion. The keyway may be hidden within the other member, which may be transversely slotted to provide an access opening for the leg where this is to be supported intermediate the axial ends of the member. Similarly the tubular member may be transversely slotted to provide an access opening for the gudgeon plate. The other member may include one or more axially aligned extensions which form a labyrinth seal with the one member, making the hinge assembly particularly suited for use in shower doors.
Abstract: A shower door assembly of the frameless type comprises light plastic panels interconnected substantially along their length by hinges which include channels for gripping the panels. An elongated bracket facilitates the attachment of the door to walls that are out of square in relation to a bath or shower pan. The assembly presents a smooth appearance substantially devoid of surface obstructions.
