Luxury in Your Bathroom
Walk-in shower enclosures are a godsend for those who do not like to put limitations on the space use even in the bathroom. Certainly, nowadays, people have an extremely diverse choice of the shower enclosures, including the architectural glass ones. Thus, different manufacturers offer different glass types, shower enclosure styles, as well as colour and design solutions for the shower glass constructions. However, undoubtedly, frameless walk-in shower units stand out of the pack, belonging to the luxury shower enclosures. So with the Creative Glass Studio, it will be possible to enjoy this luxury at your home or any other place where you are going to install such a glass construction.
Well Thought-Out Layout
The installation of glass walk-in shower enclosures needs a well thought-out layout. That is why you have to think in advance where to place such a glass construction. In fact, the shower doors perform particular functions. Also, their primary task is to protect the bathroom floor and the interior decor items against water that may leak from the shower unit. However, the walk-in shower does not have the shower doors. That is why you have to ensure that all the important things, such as bathroom furniture, towels, carpets, and clothing are at least 2-3 m from the walk-in shower. It means that you should have a large bathroom to fully enjoy the benefits which such a shower unit gives. Besides, you have to take care of the application of hydrophobic wall coating to avoid mould and unpleasant smell.
Suitable Shower Head
Pay attention to the fact that not every shower head will be suitable for the walk-in shower enclosures. Thus, it is necessary to choose a big shower head that delivers a water spray directed strictly downwards. The matter is that if you install a shower head that sprays water at an angle, much water will splash out of the shower. However, this is not what you need when you use a walk-in glass shower unit. Rainfall shower heads suit the walk-in showers the best.
Appropriate Drain System
Undoubtedly, drain system matters a lot when it comes to the walk-in shower enclosures. The plug hole should be big in order the drain system could manage the water outflow. Otherwise, the water will flood the bathroom. It is especially important if the shower unit does not have a shower tray. Moreover, in this case, you should also carefully think which floor covering to choose for your walk-in glass shower unit.
The walk-in shower enclosures can consist of one, two or more shower panels without doors. Usually, these shower units also do not have a frame. And the installers use glass adapters or base shoe channels to mount these glass constructions. Sometimes, a walk-in shower can consist of one curved glass panel. Also, one of glass panels can be curved, while the others are flat. Furthermore, some ultra-modern, extraordinary walk-in shower units have a snail design that really boggles the mind.
To increase structural stiffness of the glass panel(s) and to depend on the width of the glass panel(s), it is necessary to use a stainless steel upper support bar. This shower reinforcement bar can be angular, perpendicular, or parallel. There are also round and square designs of these bars. However, the glass panels also often have the floor to ceiling height. In this case, it is necessary to use special fasteners along the perimeter in the joint between the glass panel and the wall.
Glass and Fittings
To make the walk-in shower enclosures, it is obligatory to use the toughened glass or laminated toughened glass. These glass types are a must because they guarantee the required safety. The application of toughening technique is necessary to minimise possible injuries if the glass accidentally breaks.
The choice of glass colour and transparency can vary from completely transparent to frosted glass which is almost non-transparent. It is also possible to apply different pictures and patterns on the glass surface. Thus, the customers can choose the pattern sketch which the glass company creates or can offer own design (company logo, drawing, etc.).
Besides, the finish option which you choose for your shower fittings should comply with your shower room design. We offer the following finish options: anodised, satin, mirror polished, and brushed.
