Blog | March 11th, 2019

If comfort is a priority, what room could be more important than your bathroom? The bathroom of your home can say a whole lot about the rest of your house. In your bathroom, having a quality shower with a quality showerscreen can go a long way toward impressing your visitors while giving you some satisfaction in the design. While most people don’t think twice about their showerscreens, we’re going to delve into the topic a little bit deeper. Today, we are going to showcase the key differences between framed and frameless showerscreens.

Framed vs. Frameless Showerscreens

If you are like most people, you probably haven’t given a second thought to the type of shower frame that you have. Is it frameless? Is it framed? What’s the difference? If you are going to be making any kind of upgrades to your bathrooms, you are going to want to know a little bit more about the key differences involved. Let’s go ahead and outline the framed and frameless showerscreens so that you can understand the key differences. This isn’t an exhaustive comparison but it will get you started.

Frame Showerscreens
– A framed showerscreen, or shower door, is exactly what it sounds like. This industry term refers directly to the metal frame that encapsulates your bathing area. This frame can be made of a number of different materials but it will typically be accompanied by the glass. You’ll have a swinging or sliding glass panel door for entrance into the enclosure.

Benefits: Easy to open, and they will keep your shower self-contained. Framed showerscreens will last for at least ten years when properly installed.

Negatives:
Typically, you’ll have to use thinner and weaker glass.

Frameless Showerscreens
– A frameless showerscreen is considered on the high end of potential options for your bathroom. A frameless showerscreen relies on heavy glass with a special set of pivot points that are installed in order to support the entire structure. This is the most diverse option possible in term of design flexibility, so you know that you will be able to get something that fits your personal style and needs.

Benefits: Sturdy and long-lasting. Comes in a variety of different shapes, styles, and designs. Easy to clean and take care of.

Negatives: This is the most expensive type of showerscreen that you can order. This style is also beholden to leaks when improperly installed.
