Semi-Frameless Glass Shower Doors
Semi-frameless glass shower doors and enclosures deliver a stylish, yet functional barrier between the bathroom space and the shower stall or tub. A semi-frameless enclosure can be added to any tub or shower area to further the functionality and beauty of any bathroom in your home. New semi-frameless shower doors can easily improve the look of your bathroom by adding an element of luxury. It is amazing how the replacement of your old shower doors can change the way your bathroom feels, transforming it from a utilitarian room to an elegant oasis.
Anytime you choose to update your bathroom with new shower doors, it is essential to know your choices and decide what is appealing to your taste and price range. A semi-frameless design can be a great option depending on your preferred style and budget.
What is the definition of a semi-frameless shower door?
Semi-frameless shower enclosures include the minimum amount of metal needed for stability. They have metal headers as well as a thin metal frame around the fixed glass. However, the door itself never has a metal frame. By-pass shower doors are an example of a semi-frameless unit because there is no frame around the door panels, but a metal frame extends along the perimeter of the enclosure. Alexandria Glass Repair offers a wide selection of semi-frameless shower door enclosures.
Why choose a semi-frameless enclosure over other types of shower doors?
Some people opt for a semi-frameless rather than a frameless or framed enclosure for two main reasons: conditions and cost. For instance, if you want to hang the glass shower door between two panels of glass you may be forced to use a metal header. Stability of the entire unit is only achieved with a semi-frameless option. The other reason could be cost; a semi-frameless shower door is usually more budget-friendly than a comparable frameless unit.
