One of the most frequently asked questions from our customers is the difference between framed glass showers and frameless glass showers.
As the name suggests, framed glass showers have a rigid frame on their periphery and are hinged with supporting walls. In contrast, frameless glass sliding door showers have only glass as their supporting mechanism supporting their whole weight. Framed glass showers have more width to them as compared to frameless glass showers.
Semi-frameless shower enclosures are the regular framed shower glass with prominent features of frames in cube shape that surround all glass edges, but the ‘semi-frameless’ refers to the very thin but strong and durable, carefully integrated frame that has a continuous appearance around the edges of the glass.
A semi-frameless shower is usually used where one or more edges have strong support, and the other edges are open to space. Usually, two sides are supported and two asides are open, or sometimes three sides are open and only one side is supported. Some semi frameless sliding shower door mechanisms are also available on the market.

Another question that our customers ask a lot is the difference between screened and non-screened glass. The answer is quite simple; screened glass is translucent to hide the insides of showers, whereas clear shower glass is transparent, allowing the outsiders to view the inside of a shower.
The name ‘semi-frameless’ refers to the thin, albeit strong, and durable glass frame capable of holding their ‘frame’ supported by bricks or the wall. It has a continuous and seamless appearance as being one body. They have a thickness of 6mm. It may seem thin, but the glass is toughened during the manufacturing process.

The popular frameless option is commonly used in most showers because of its incredible strength from using thicker glass. They have a thickness of 10mm.
Using the frame in either framed shower glass or frameless glass reduces the need for thicker glass, thus making it less pricey. Having said that semi-frameless shower door screen is the best choice as it does not occupy much space and is durable.
A shower glass sealer is a super easy and quick fix to effectively maintain the seal between the doors and sliding vertical plastic or glass racks on your own. Shower doors are constantly exposed to water splashes and soap scum. If you live in an area where hard water is abundant, white salt deposits will accumulate in water taps and racks, destroying the seal and making it dirtier.
Whenever you shop for good quality products, you must take care of them to maintain their high quality to remain functional for years to come. It is true for glass products as they make up 35% of your household items. Residents can describe the beauty of a house in how much care has been given to its glass items, as they show more dirt than there is. You can keep all of these glass products shimmering with very little effort, from the glass on coffee tables to shower glass and mirrors.
You can find a wide range of glass cleaners in the market to help you with your glass and shower care needs. Low-quality cleaners can damage the shower door coating and the metal finish and even leave scratches on the glass surface. Vinegar or vinegar-based products, powders, or liquids that are abrasive must be avoided by cleaning glass. The same goes for bleach-based cleaners and steel or Teflon pads.
The sliding door offers wide and easy access while allowing design flexibility for bathroom furniture and showering space. It exudes luxury with the effortless door action and generous door opening. If you would love to exude the same luxury from your bathroom and don’t have a huge budget to do so, a few simple changes can make a huge difference. Switching out an old framed sliding door or a shower curtain in favor of a frameless sliding door is an effective way to modernize an outdated bathroom.
