The Structure of The Shower Enclosure
- The structure can be divided into three types: framed, semi-frameless and frameless.
a. Framed: The metal frame is mainly made of aluminum alloy frame or stainless steel, and the plates are made of tempered glass. When purchasing, pay attention to whether the surface is scratched and the frame material is combined. Whether there is a tight fit, whether there is a plastic or metal cover on the top of the outer frame, whether the switch is smooth, whether the door and the brake pads that directly affect the waterproof effect, and the magnet strip design, etc.
b. Semi-frameless: the outer frame is made of aluminum alloy frame or stainless steel, and the plates are mainly tempered glass.
c. Frameless type: It is mainly composed of hinges, fixed clips, shear rods and tempered glass. Because it is a frameless design, the wall material and verticality requirements should be higher.
- The glass used in the shower door must meet the safety glass standard, that is, it can be used after passing the impact temperature damage test. In addition, most people think that the thicker the glass, the better. In fact, as long as it can pass the former test.Normally, we used 6/8/10mm tempered glass at our products.
- Surface treatment: The metal surface of the general shower door frame material can be divided into coating (powder or liquid) and electroplating. No matter which process is used, it is necessary to understand the thickness, hardness, brightness, adhesion, etc. of the coating film and whether it has passed It is resistant to thick salt spray and chemical tests. Because it is installed in the bathroom at a high temperature and often uses chemicals in it, the metal surface treatment should not be taken lightly.
- Type and size: Each bathroom has different specifications and sizes, so when choosing, subjective and objective factors need to be considered. Generally speaking, the door opening method can be divided into sliding, swing, folding, walk in, and bath screen etc.
