What’s the Difference between a Traditional & Frameless Shower Door
One of the defining elements of a bathroom is usually your shower/bath area. The shower or bath area is designed to be comfortable, stylish, and to contain water from spilling out into the rest of your bathroom area. Shower enclosures have changed dramatically over the years, they’ve morphed into beautiful and sophisticated areas that look amazing and have incredible functionality. Today we’re going to talk about framed and frameless glass shower door enclosures. There are some very important factors to consider when choosing either of the two.
Traditional Framed Glass Shower Door Enclosures
The traditional framed glass shower door enclosure system usually features an aluminum or composite frame. The traditional enclosure frame holds the glass wall partitions together to give it structure, as well as allowing for the operable parts to function in the door region. The frames can be coated with chrome, bronze, nickel, gold or other available finishes. A framed enclosure is usually slightly easier to seal & waterproof.
The Modern Frameless Shower Door Enclosure
Frameless shower door enclosures usually rely on much heavier-duty types of glass, along with special pivots that allow for structural support. The frameless enclosure is usually free of any metal around the operable part of the glass partition. Some manufacturers still use a structural metal frame or a track in certain areas along the partitions, but for the most part remain frameless or semi-frameless. Frameless glass shower door enclosures are an elegant solution for any style bathroom.
Pros & Cons of Framed Glass Shower Door Enclosures
The traditional framed glass shower door enclosure is very effective when it comes to its seals and keeping water within the bath/shower area. The seals and sweeps that are usually included within the framed system allow for the door to be placed anywhere. With no need for highly polished edges, thicker glass and specialty hardware, framed enclosures will tend to be less expensive than frameless models. The non-traditional frameless system tends to look sleek and modern. The frameless glass shower door enclosure will flow right into the rest of your bathroom’s beautiful aesthetic design, eliminating the hard lines that usually come with a framed system.
