The SER doors are constructed from 3/4″ thick extruded polymer resins that do not splinter or crack under high abuse. The polymer doors may be painted to match any color scheme.

SER doors are mounted with a universal continuous hinge that may be mounted to door frame or toilet partition and eliminates any gaps that may be used as an ligature point.

The top of the door is angled, so anything hung over will slide off. Shower door eliminates curtains and the chance of affixation by use of waterproof materials.
