The Safety Features of Frameless Glass Showers

At Maryland Frameless Showers, we believe that beauty and safety go hand in hand. Frameless glass showers offer a sleek, modern look while incorporating various safety features to ensure your bathroom remains as safe as it is stylish.

Here are some key safety aspects of frameless glass showers:

Tempered Glass
One of the most important safety features is the use of tempered glass. Unlike regular glass, tempered glass is treated with heat and chemicals to increase its strength. This makes it much more resistant to impacts. In the rare event that it does break, tempered glass shatters into small, blunt pieces rather than sharp shards, significantly reducing the risk of injury.frameless_glass_showers

Thicker Glass Panels
Frameless glass showers typically use thicker glass panels compared to framed showers. This added thickness provides extra durability and stability, making the glass less likely to break under normal use. At Maryland Frameless Showers, we typically use glass that is at least 3/8 inch thick, ensuring robustness and longevity.

Smooth Edges
All edges of the glass panels in frameless showers are polished and smoothed to eliminate sharpness. This process reduces the risk of cuts and injuries during installation and daily use. The smooth edges also add to the overall aesthetic appeal of the shower enclosure.

Sturdy Hardware
The hardware used in frameless glass showers is designed to provide maximum support and stability. Heavy-duty hinges, brackets, and handles ensure that the glass panels remain securely in place. High-quality hardware also prevents the doors from sagging or becoming misaligned over time, which can be a safety hazard.

Non-Slip Coatings
Safety isn’t just about the glass itself; it’s also about the surfaces you stand on. Many frameless glass showers can be installed with non-slip coatings on the floor to prevent slips and falls. These coatings provide an additional layer of safety, especially in wet conditions.

Custom Fit
Frameless glass showers are custom fitted to your bathroom space. This ensures that there are no gaps or spaces where water can escape, reducing the risk of slips and falls on wet bathroom floors. A precise fit also means that the shower enclosure is stable and secure.

Safety Standards Compliance
At Maryland Frameless Showers, all of our products comply with the highest safety standards in the industry. Our glass is certified to meet national and international safety regulations, giving you peace of mind that your frameless shower is built to the highest quality and safety specifications.

Frameless glass showers are a beautiful addition to any bathroom, offering a clean, modern look. At Maryland Frameless Showers, we prioritize safety in every aspect of our design and installation process. From tempered glass and sturdy hardware to custom fittings and non-slip coatings, their frameless showers are engineered to provide a safe and luxurious shower experience. If you have any questions about the safety features of frameless glass showers don’t hesitate to contact Maryland Frameless Showers.

After talking with several shower door company’s, I am very glad that I decided to go with Maryland Frameless Showers. There was great communication throughout the entire process. I like that the owner, Jim, came out to measure my shower and listened to what i wanted. He did what other companies told me was not possible! The price was fair and no one tried to “upsell” me products that I did not need. Our new shower looks fantastic and I highly recommend this company.
