Most probably, you have heard a lot about shower doors and their various features. However, this is the right time to speak about frameless shower enclosures. We have noticed that our customers ask more questions about this particular type of glass products, so this is why we are willing to provide more information about them. First of all, let’s get it clear: there are two basic types of shower enclosures – frameless and framed ones. The latter still remain the most common type of shower doors used in residential construction, including apartments and houses. You know that many people have difficulties letting go the most salient traditions, so it will take some time before framed shower doors give place to their frameless counterparts. At the same time, we should say that both types have their advantages and disadvantages, and our main goal is to provide the fullest information, so that you can make an informed decision.
The main difference between the two types of doors is in that framed enclosures use rubber seals and a magnetic strip to ensure that the door is seal shut. By contrast, frameless shower enclosures have no such things and, moreover, there is no metal trim holding the glass structure together. Basically, when you deal with a frameless enclosure in the shower, you see only a piece of glass arranged neatly to create the atmosphere of continuity and modernity in your shower. If you are considering an opportunity to install a frameless shower enclosure, then you definitely need to know its benefits.
As of today, we can list at least five main reasons why installing frameless shower enclosures is worthy. First of all, the “appearance” factor plays one of the major roles, because everyone wants his/her shower to look modern and exclusive. Generally, frameless shower doors look much more appealing than their framed alternatives, and they can be easily adjusted to meet the most sophisticated consumer demands.
Second, it is a matter of economy, since frameless shower enclosures represent the best solution for small shower rooms. They are frameless and, for this reason, they have a remarkable capability to expand visible space.
Third, it is a well-known fact that frameless shower enclosures are much more durable. We make these products of glass that is much stronger and less risky than the glass used in more traditional framed enclosures. Frameless shower enclosures are less vulnerable to breakage.
Fourth, if you want to save your costs long-term, then frameless shower enclosures will give you such an opportunity. Due to the absence of frames and related elements, there are virtually no elements that need complex maintenance. By contrast, in framed shower enclosures you will constantly need to monitor the state of your frames.
Fifth, and final, frameless shower enclosures are so easy to clean! Because they have no frames, there are also no spaces or places where you can see accumulated dirt. As a result, it won’t take you long to clean a frameless shower enclosure, even if it has any unusual structure.
Certainly, frameless shower enclosures are more expensive than the framed ones, and they usually demand more complex installation procedures. However, it is worth investing more in the creation and installation of frameless shower doors, in order to save more costs in the long run. Eventually, these things will prove of great financial and architectural value, giving you a sense of confidence and pleasure every time you take a shower!
