They are also easy to clean, so if you’re tired of cleaning your shower curtain again and again, they are a great option. However, there’s a bit more to installing one than just choosing between a clear or frosted glass.

Here are the 5 of the most frequently asked questions about showerscreens:

  1. What’s the difference between a fully framed and a frameless showerscreen?
  2. What is a semi framed showerscreen?
  3. Why are frameless screenshowers more expensive than fully framed shower screens?
  4. What are my showerscreen door options?
  5. I don’t like the feeling of being enclosed in my bathroom. What should I do?

What’s the difference between a fully framed and a frameless showerscreen?

A fully framed shower screen has an aluminium frame around every panel of glass. A frameless shower screen doesn’t have frames. The panes of the glass are instead secured together with discreetly hidden hinges and hardware.

What is a semi framed showerscreen?

A semi framed showerscreen may use frames only where they are needed. Usually, it is only the door that is frameless.

Frameless showerscreensmay cost slightly more as they use high quality hardware and hinges that not only have to hold the components together but also remain unseen. They are also harder to install and may require a professional to do the installation,therefore adding the fees to the existing cost.

What are my showerscreen door options?

This depends on the style of showerscreen that you need. You can choose between sliding doors, swinging doors and pivot doors – the choice is yours.

I don’t like the feeling of being enclosed in my bathroom. What should I do?

Some modern bathroom designs are dismissing showers creens altogether. Instead, a single fixed panel is installed to prevent water from splashing out, contact Aspired Aluminium & Glass to discuss what options are available for your bathroom.
