Which Shower Screen suits you?
If you prefer to do your own research, we’ve provided additional information about the different types of shower screens on this and other pages on the site.
Let’s start with an overview of the basic shower screen types:
Framed Shower Screens
The framed shower screen has an aluminium frame that surrounds and supports the glass and door. Framed shower screens are sturdy and yet suit a modest budget.
As the frame supports the glass, the shower screen glass can be slightly thinner and lighter, yet still compliant with the Australian Standards. As a result, the framed shower screen is the less expensive style.
The frames are aluminium and the panels are either 4mm or 6mm safety glass. You can choose between a pivot door or a sliding door.
Many people feel the frame detracts from the shower screen’s appearance. Framed show screens are a great option for bathrooms used by families with children.
Semi-frameless Shower Screens
Semi-frameless shower screens are designed to be attractive, yet still sturdy and safe for your family with 6mm safety glass all around.
Frames are carefully integrated into the design to support the glass in key points. This reduces the need for more expensive glass while still providing a beautiful aesthetic look in your bathroom.
Fully Frameless Shower Screens
Fully frameless shower screens simply look beautiful. They are the ultimate in style and sophistication.
A frameless shower screen has no aluminium framework impinging on the bathroom’s presentation. The result is a nearly transparent yet elegant shower screen that visually floats in your bathroom.
Fully frameless shower screens require slightly thicker glass to comply with the Australian standards.
Notably, fully frameless shower screens are easier to clean with no supporting framework to catch soap scum.
Fully frameless shower screens are manufactured in 10mm toughened safety glass with a variety of hinges, fittings and handles to choose from.
Ultimately, the shower screen you choose will depend on your bathroom’s style and its size and layout. Of course your budget is also a factor.
Shower Screen Manufacture
Making a beautiful shower screen that exactly fits into your bathroom starts with taking precision measurements. Our skilled glaziers attend onsite to record the dimensions of your new shower screen.
Measuring for your Shower Screen
This information is then fed into our in-house show screen design and manufacturing system.
We custom cut each piece of glass in your new shower screen, as often bathrooms aren’t exactly square and level. Tolerances are within 1mm so the shower screen glass will fit like a glove and look fabulous.
Our shower screen manufacturing service is geared up to precision cut and pre-assemble your new shower screen within five to ten business days after final measurements are taken.
Fittings for Shower Screens
We install only high-grade frames, hinges and handles. They don’t suffer from cracking, rusting or peeling. Hinges and handles are solid brass, available in a variety of coated colours including polished chrome, black and antique bronze. They are designed to retain their look and functionality for many years.
Frames Colours for Shower Screens
You can choose from five different Powder Coat Colours or three Anodised Colours.
Standard Shower Screen Powder Coat Colours
- White Birch
- Almond Ivory
Standard Shower Screen Anodised Colours
- Matt Silver
- Bright Silver
- Bright Gold
