Why Frameless Shower Doors?
Shower doors can come in two varieties: framed or frameless. Traditional shower doors are usually framed and come with an aluminum frame on all sides of the panel. Frameless doors, as their name suggests, do not have this aluminum framing. Instead, the door hinges are installed directly onto the glass. Recently, frameless shower door trend has become very popular. Below are some reasons you should consider frameless shower doors for your bathroom project
Because they do not have frames, frameless shower doors have a seamless appearance. Also, the thicker glass required for these doors lends itself to their elegant look.
Some people believe that because these doors do not have frames, that they are somehow less safe. This may be due to the fact that the glass appears fragile without a frame. However, this is not the case. The glass used for frameless shower doors is thicker than regular shower glass and is more difficult to break. The tempering process used on the glass for frameless doors also helps make the glass sturdier.
Easy to Clean
Since these shower doors lack a frame, there is nothing to impede cleaning. Also, there is no aluminum frame to get dirty or grimy.
