Three Main Features To Consider For Glass Shower Doors in Toronto

Glass shower doors in Toronto are very popular for homeowners due to their functionality and aesthetic. When it comes to the appearance of glass, you can choose from different textures and looks including clear glass, cast glass, frosted or acid-etched glass, patterned or even colored glass. If you’re mostly sharing your bathroom with people, a privacy glass which is heavily textured or frosted is a great choice.

Important things to consider when choosing glass shower doors in Toronto include glass type, thickness and protection.

Glass Type

For enhanced durability and safety, a tempered glass is a better choice over annealed glass, the common choice for windows. Tempered glass has been used on shower doors for years. It addressed the key issue of personal safety during showering. It can operate as a swinging or sliding door, and even as a wall in a shower enclosure that does not easily break.

However, if you want to be extra safe, laminated glass is great since it’s less likely to cause serious injury in case of an accident. It looks like regular glass but it’s actually made of two sheets stuck to a central layer of clear vinyl. Once it fractures, the broken pieces remain intact since they still adhere to the vinyl.

 

Thickness

Glass shower doors in Toronto are built with varying thickness which is somewhat dictated by whether it’s a framed, a semi-frameless, or a frameless unit. Heavy glass, being the thickest of all the glass shower doors in Toronto, are perfect for frameless style. On the other hand, thinner glass is used in framed units for a more structural support that safeguards vulnerable corners of the tempered glass. 

 

Protection

Protecting the glass from harmful or corrosive elements is very important to extend its life. Glass protection is also a good option since it offers less maintenance. An ion-beam technology is one of the techniques to treat and permanently protect the sealed surface. But if you’re on a budget, glass shower doors in Toronto can also be treated with a high-end sealant which is applied after manufacturing. This compound can protect the glass from stains and corrosion.
