Bespoke shower enclosures

It is possible to manufacture a shower enclosure to suit virtually any application and simple changes in height or width in both framed and semi-frameless designs are available from many manufacturers. Some take this a stage further by accommodating non-standard angles such as under a sloping ceiling. Frameless and semi-frameless shower doors and enclosures are best suited to accommodating angles due to the minimal framework and whilst this may be described as a bespoke service, it is only achieved by remanufacturing a standard product. Importantly, the layout and way in which the framed and semi-frameless shower enclosures work cannot be altered by this process Folding Shower Doors
Shower enclosures are manufactured using toughened safety glass, which must comply with the European safety standard EN12150, designed to shatter into small pieces of around 5mm to minimise the danger from shards of glass. However, it is not possible to cut toughened safety glass and if is not possible to accommodate a standard production shower enclosure in the space available, a bespoke unit will be required Frameless Glass Shower Doors

Fully frameless shower enclosures can provide a truly bespoke solution to shower requirements. Although there are some rules and constraints which must be considered when planning the shower, layouts can be changed, panels added or removed and importantly, shapes and angles can be accommodated. Smaller specialist manufacturers may also be able to offer a choice of hardware styles and finishes in addition to the usual handle options. Coloured and sandblasted glass with anti-lime scale protection may also available upon request  frameless showers door NYC
Specialist frameless shower manufacturers often offer complimentary services such as glass balustrades and balconies, glass partitions and glass internal doors. A glass partition between a master bedroom and en-suite bathroom can create a stunning contemporary feature. Steam enclosures can also be designed and constructed using a frameless glass system Glass Modern Doors

Frameless Shower Doors

Are you thinking of adding a frameless shower door to your bathroom? Here are a few things to know before you start the project Sliding Shower Doors
There is no such thing as a perfect piece of glass. Hair line scratches and minor flaws may exist.

A frameless shower door will never be water tight. The amount of water that leaks out will be determined by several factors, including the size of shower, type of shower head, direction of shower head and the slope of the sill Glass Shower Door
When hinging a frameless door on tile, it is best to have solid backing behind the hinges.
Minor color variations may exist between your fixtures and the shower hardware.

Regular cleaning and use of a squeegee will help maintain the glass and avoid soap or water buildup. Avoid using abrasive products or cleaners Folding Shower Doors
