Shower Design Considerations

 

By their very nature frameless glass showers are NOT 100% watertight, small leaks will occur depending on the quality of the install (how seals are joined / silicone application etc) and the choice of hinges. If detailed by us we will choose hardware we believe gives the most robust solution possible but we cannot guarantee it will not leak, please see our design considerations before making your purchase by clicking here

 

Breaking Toughened Glass

 

Although very strong the weak points of toughened glass are the edges and primarily the corners, therefore any glass that breaks will have received a solid impact to either of these points this includes installing directly down on a hard surface i.e. hard floor or channel without packing.

 

You can see what happens when a piece of toughened glass breaks below, (opens in new media player window):

All stainless steel products will require protection and correct maintenance throughout life or surface discolouration can occur, we recommend use of Tygris cleaner/protector spray or equivalent. In many cases what appears to be corrosion is merely chemical build up and staining, see below images of a stainless steel bracket with this exact issue then scraped with a knife blade.
