Tossing up between framed vs frameless shower screen for your bathroom? We know it can be a hard decision to make. But the good news is the friendly team at Shower Enclosure Service is here to help you find the best option.
Our glass shower screens are custom made to any dimensions for any bathroom size and we will work with you to ensure the right fit.
What are the differences between Framed and Frameless Shower Screens?
Apart from the overall look, the main difference lies with the glass used:
- Framed and semi frameless screens use 5 and 6mm clear toughened glass; whereas
- Frameless screens use a thicker, 10mm clear toughened glass.
Frameless screens, by design, will not stop all the water from escaping the shower cubicle.
In a semi-frameless option, the gaps between the panels of glass which allow the door to swing are reduced, therefore less water tends to escape from the vertical gap.
The semi-frameless screen also features a frame that runs along the floor to stop water running out of the shower cubicle. While there are seals that can be added to a frameless screen, if water escaping the shower cubicle is an issue, we recommend the option for a semi-frameless screen instead.
When to Choose Framed Or Frameless
- Framed screens tend to be more affordable.
- Frameless screens are more aesthetically pleasing.
Benefits of Replacing a Framed Shower Door with a Frameless Option:
- It has a cleaner look
- Modern design
- Easier to clean as there is no frame to clean around
- Less silicone to maintain
