A Buyers Guide to Frameless Shower Enclosures
Frameless shower enclosures have become the epitome of style for any modern home, and there are many good reasons for this. One good reason is that frameless shower enclosures are much sleeker, more chic, and more stylish than the standard shower enclosure. Standard shower enclosures can tend to look bulky, especially if there isn’t enough space in a bathroom. With a frameless shower enclosure, your bathroom can look more elegant as there are no noticeable frames and the glass is often clear and free from obstructions. Here's all you need to know about frameless shower enclosures so you can be assured that you are making an informed choice?
- What are frameless shower enclosures?
Frameless shower enclosures are simply enclosures which do not have the standard frame. In other words, the shower cubicle will still be fully enclosed, but the frame which encloses the shower will be made from fewer parts which are a lot less noticeable. Frameless shower enclosures are comprised mostly of glass, and this allows your bathroom to have a more open and airier look. Reflections from the glass can also help make your bathroom appear bigger.
- What are the different sizes and specifications for frameless shower doors and enclosures?
There are plenty of different sizes and specifications when it comes to frameless shower doors and enclosures, all you have to do is choose the size and specification which would best fit the space available in your bathroom. Here at JT Spas, we have frameless shower enclosures in sizes ranging from 800mm to 1700mm, depending on the type of frameless enclosure door you choose. For example, we have standard frameless hinged shower doors in 800mm, and we also have sliding shower enclosure doors which have a measurement of 1400mm. Smaller bathrooms can benefit from a quadrant-shaped frameless shower enclosure, and a typical quadrant frameless enclosure would be about 800mm by 800mm. Of course, if you want a bigger quadrant enclosure, you can choose one which has a size of 1200mm by 900mm.
- Are frameless shower doors really durable?
The glass of the frameless shower doors we use is known for its thickness and durability, which makes it suitable for any bathroom. The standard thickness for frameless shower door glass is 8mm; you shouldn’t look for anything less than this. Another aspect which makes the frameless shower doors safer is that they are tempered and polished, which means that they no longer need heavy framing to remain stable and steady.
Frameless shower enclosures are versatile and flexible, and they have now become a beautiful alternative to a traditional or standard shower enclosure comprised of heavy frames. If you want a sleeker-looking, more stylish, and ultra-modern, contemporary bathroom, frameless shower enclosures are the perfect choice.
