Types of Frameless Shower Screens

  1. Fixed Panel Shower Screens

This is, as the name suggests simply a single panel with a thick piece of glass. Often 10mm glass is used, but we are starting to see much thicker glass up to 15mm thick that immediately captures the imagination of the entering guest or potential buyer!

Fixed panels are usually either recessed into the wall and tiles, or fixed using an aluminium U-Channel.

Fixed panel showers are also very simple and fast to install, as there are no doors or other panels to align. Turn around is also usually pretty quick for these style screens, as it’s just one piece of glass with no holes, and a quick installation.

  1. Wall-To-Wall Shower Screens

When there is a wall on each side of the proposed screen, a common choice is to have glass across the hole span with a door in the middle, or a door on either end. Wall to Wall applications are usually suited to a sliding shower system, to save space.

Alternatively, if hinges are preferred, the door can be hinged off panels next to the door or directly to the wall. It all depends on the other circumstances to deal with in the space.

  1. Corner Or L-Shaped Shower Screens

The L-shaped or corner shower screen is one of the most common options when it comes to glass shower screens Melbourne. In existing bathrooms, most showers will be positioned in the corner of the room, making this layout very common for renovations.

Again, this type of layout could be suitable for both a sliding or hinged door system depending on the room.
