Glass of Shower Encloures

The most important part of Shower Encloures is the glass, which has a large surface area and a slippery shower area, so the safety of the glass is of paramount importance. Although we all know that we should choose tempered glass, there is also a difference between fully tempered and semi-tempered glass.

As the saying goes, cheap is not good, good is not cheap.

Glass thickness 6-8mm

Observe with sunglasses

Put blast-proof film on the glass

Although toughened glass is good quality, it has a 3 in 1,000 chance of spontaneous explosion, so to be on the safe side, always apply blast-proof film to prevent that 3 in 1,000 chance of injury.

Frame profiles of Shower Room

The overall skeleton of the shower room is supported by the metal profile, so the quality of the profile is one of the considerations.

A good quality profile will feel very hard when pressed by hand, and it is very difficult for adults to deform it by pressing it by hand.

The thickness of the profile should be greater than 1.2mm: the thickness of the profile with good quality is between 1.2 and 1.5mm, and there is also 2mm, which is better quality

Part of Shower Encloures: Stone base

The stone base is the water barrier at the bottom of the shower. In terms of installation order, there is the option of installing the stone base after the tiles have been applied, but the best solution is to install the stone base before the tiles are applied, and to bury the stone base in the tiles. Choose a good quality stone base and install it at once, otherwise it will be difficult to replace it if it breaks down in a few years.
