For installations of new showers, the first thing you need to think of is the style, design or type of the shower door. The most wonderful option is the frameless shower screen.
Pros of frameless shower screens:
Almost every shower screen is customised. This means you aren’t just limited to a vast variety of shower doors of any standard size. This will add more flexibility to the shower installations. Also, customisation is necessary in case of a frameless shower screen.
The most crucial fact while choosing a frameless shower screen is its measurement and installation. Typically the frameless screens we purchase have the glass not in the shape of a square. While going for the measurement, if you come up with a square glass, you will find that it will not fit properly. It is better to order a glass that is 1/16th of an inch in measurement.
Framed shower screens appear to be bulky as the edges have rubber in them or are sealed using any metal. Frameless showers do not have such eyesore additions, making them look fresh and clean.
Frameless shower screens in Sydney make an effort to minimise the accumulation of mould and water because of the shower. With framed shower screens, there is a risk of water building up under the seals, making them a place for growing moulds. Frameless shower screens in Sydney take care of such risky areas. They make an effort to make your place easy to clean.
Cons of frameless shower screen:
Frameless shower screens make use of thick glass to make them stay in place without any sturdiness of the frame. As they weigh nearly 80- 100 pounds, they require sturdy hardware such as solid brass to hold them in place.
The price of framed shower screens lies between $80- $300 whereas the price of frameless shower screens lies between $700- $1200.
Though the frameless shower screens are excellent in aesthetics, they lack the optimum performance level. Framed shower screens have rubber seals all around them to bind doors with floor and walls and thus prevent leakages. Frameless shower screens lack such seals.
This means unless the door is cut to be accurately fit, there could be chances of some gaps in between the screen and other adjoining areas. As per the experts, it is important to consider the design of the shower before thinking about the frameless shower screens.
The problem of shower leaking occurs mainly because of the improper shower design. Many of them have their heads towards the door rather than the opposite wall to make the water stay away from the screen. Frameless shower screens in Sydney get involved in the early stages of shower installations so that the homeowner is prevented from choosing such a design that wouldn’t work in future. Also, the frameless shower screens in Sydney provide professionals in case you want your door to be customised, rather than simply handing them over from a hardware store.
