Here are some benefits of a Showerflex® frameless shower door.
It is very stylish
It is called the ‘bathroom’, but more and more this area is being identified for its shower. Showers are terrific and even the ancient Romans, known for spending their time in bathhouses, not only had showers but loved using them.
In this scenario frameless glass shower doors are a perfect fit. The lack of hard edges and cold metal allows light to stream across the room, making it feel bigger. Frameless glass doors also show off the tile work in the shower, adding to the experience before you’ve even gotten your head wet.
It is very strong
One common misconception about frameless glass shower doors is that they are fragile and may even be dangerous. This couldn’t be further from the truth: frameless glass doors are made from sturdy material and can be quite thick. If you ever had the unfortunate luck to trip and fall, it won’t be through one of these. All materials conform to prescribed safety standards and manufacturing specifications according to SASEMA.
Same design – separate private spaces
Bathrooms are usually not giant spaces, which can make some design tasks a bit tricky. Often a person would like the toilet space to be separate and you can achieve this with the same glass and frameless design as your shower door. Now, you can have your privacy by having the toilet in a separate space and it allows a second household member to use the bath/shower portion without the downside of privacy, odour, etc…
Shower doors are not exempt: the metal frame on a traditional door is prone to capture water, which in turn creates nice homes for mildew. Frameless glass shower doors don’t have those hard-to-reach spots. They are very easy to clean, and the smoothed edges make sure there is no chance of cutting yourself while doing so. The design also uses rubber seals, so water doesn’t leak into the rest of the room, thus reducing even more potential mildew areas.
It is made to fit
Let’s not beat around the bush here: if you are considering a frameless glass shower door, you are not installing a shower at a commune. Such a door is an investment, so you are clearly spending some time and effort to improve your washroom facilities. In other words, you are not looking for what is cheap, but what is right.
Frameless glass doors are made to order, so you don’t have to design your entire shower around the door – or order the door and then hope it will fit.
