If you desire the contemporary look of a frameless enclosure but your layout and budget say “no can do,” a semi-frameless model can be a fine alternative. Made from high-quality components such as permanently bonded hinges, solid handles, patented glass coatings, thick tempered glass, and customized door heights, a semi-frameless shower door can most definitely impart a sleek, streamlined look.
Semi-frameless shower doors have metal around the entire structure, but not around the entire door. These shower doors are great options for individuals looking to incorporate the allure of the frameless door on budget and/or design constraints.
Beauty On A Budget
Semi-frameless glass shower doors do not have the thicker glass requirements of frameless glass shower doors as there is a sturdiness to the frame. Also for the same reason semi-frameless shower doors do not require sturdier hardware, such as solid brass, to hold them in place. This really helps to keep costs down when designing your shower enclosure. A partially framed shower door can still be absolutely beautiful as our pictures will demonstrate.
