Our Claralite glass shower screens are barely there
Most people are drawn to the aesthetic of frameless shower screens because of the simple sophistication achieved by doing away with visually cumbersome frames and channels. Our Claralite shower glass is a further step towards being almost invisible. The green hue within glass becomes more noticeable with thick glass and against the crisp colours within bathrooms, especially white. Our crystal clear glass is produced by altering the composition of the molten glass batch in the initial manufacturing process. The result is an almost invisible glass that allow tiles to be seen in true colour and provide maximum free visual space within the bathroom.
Claralite is for you If you dream of an invisible frameless shower screen that doesn’t close the bathroom in.
A frameless glass shower screen is inherently easier to clean and more hygienic. Your custom made shower screen will have none of those frames and channels that hold mould and grime.

Claralite Glass Showers
Let the sharp crisp tile colours shine through with a Claralite glass frameless shower screen.
Types of Claralite shower screens
We can deliver any type of Claralite shower. If you have seen it in clear glass, or imagined it, we can make that Claralite frameless shower screen. If your primary design objective is to not see the shower screen, then you would be best of choosing our Claralite glass. Our specialist builder will discuss the most suitable type of shower screen for your bathroom to best utilise your space and complement the style and dimension of your room.
We can offer the following Claralite shower screen types:
Hinged door— This corner shower has a door entry in one side, which hinges off the panel, or is hinged off the tiled wall. This layout is the most commonly seen and is suitable for a wide variety of bathrooms. Our builder can vary the width and location of your door to best suit the configuration of your other fixtures.
Corner entry — There are two hinged doors which open outwards from the corner of the shower cubicle. Corner entry showers are an interesting look and utilise the space in tight bathrooms well.
Sliding — A sliding door and fixed panel are installed on one side of the corner shower. The location of the door and fixed panel against the wall or corner, can be varied depending on the best configuration. Sliding entry is suited to compact bathrooms or for those looking to maximise their bathroom space.
Corner sliding entry — The two sliding doors open at the corner of the shower screen. This style of shower is often preferred when the location of other bathroom fixtures precludes the use of any other shower type.
Fixed panel shower
Bracket fixed — bracket fixed method is the most common method. The glass is secured by two brackets fixed into the wall tiling, and the glass is sealed to the wall and floor.
Channel fix — This method involves the setting of a channel into the wall tiling. The glass is set within the channel, leaving the glass free of visible hardware fittings.
Floor to ceiling — seen as the holy grail of bathroom glass design. The impressive floor to ceiling installation is void of visual break above the glass and the ceiling attachment improves panel stiffness.
If you’d like to know more about which frameless shower type would best suit your bathroom please get in touch. We’ll gladly run through the different options and help you find the perfect shower for your bathroom.
Frameless shower screens are light on hardware, with only minimalist hinges, handles and brackets holding them in place.

We offer a range of colours, materials and finishes on our frameless shower screen hardware so you can tailor your screen to match your bathroom.

Our handles are all configured in streamlined, geometric shapes for a timeless, classic finish available in chrome, matt black, brushed nickel, brushed brass, matt white and gunmetal grey.

Types of Glass
All our custom glass is cut, processed and toughened in Australia. We offer our customers a range of high-quality glass types to choose from, from ultra-clear to frosted and easy-clean options.
Standard — At Trinity Frameless Showers our standard glass is 10mm thick, edge polished and heat toughened safety glass. The heat toughened glass we use for our frameless shower screens is heat-treated at 600°C and rapidly cooled for added strength of up to five times that of regular glass. This process also ensures that in the rare event of breakage the glass breaks into crushed-ice like pieces rather than dangerous shards.
Claralite — If you want crystal-clear, high-clarity glass for that barely-there look then Claralite Glass is what you’re looking for. All normal glass has a green hue which becomes more noticeable the thicker the glass gets. Produced to order, Claralite gets its clarity thanks to the manufacturers reducing the iron content in the molten glass batch. Claralite increases the feeling of spaciousness with the bathroom.
Frosted — Those who prefer added privacy are drawn to our stylish frosted shower screens. Frosted glass is produced by etching one side of a standard glass panel with an acid solution, creating a slightly translucent matt finish which is then polished over. Frosted glass can appear pale green or white depending on the lighting and lends both privacy and individuality to contemporary bathrooms. Frosted shower screens are available in standard and Claralite.
Reeded – Also know as Narrowline and Fluted glass. Harking back to the earlier part of the 1900’s, reeded glass is making a resurgence in shower screens. One side is smooth, with the other have deep parallel valley’s formed into the surface. Narrowline glass creates a unique shower for those unafraid to make a design statement. It is especially suited to floor to ceiling fixed panels.
Easy Clean Enduroshield — If you’re sick of wasting time cleaning your shower screen then EnduroShield is your dream come true. This treated glass is proven to reduce cleaning time by up to 90% thanks to its ultra-long lasting invisible shield shower screen protection which permanently seals the glass at a microscopic level. EnduroShield is both water and oil repellent, which keeps it cleaner for longer, is more hygienic and makes cleaning virtually effortless.

Can my Claralite shower screen be treated with Enduroshield ?
Yes we can.
Is there any other difference between Claralite and regular clear glass?
No. The glass is made by reducing the iron content at the initially manufacturing stage. Other than the improved clarity, the glass is exactly the same as our regular clear glass.

From requesting a quote to having your new frameless shower installed, our entire process including measuring, ordering and installation usually takes around two weeks.
Are frameless showers easy to clean?
Yes. Frameless shower screens are easy to clean thanks to their lack of edges, hardware and framing where soap scum and dirt can build up on traditional shower screens.
Traditional framed showers have channels and plastic seals which harbour dirt and mould, making them unsightly and unhygienic. These elements usually require fiddly, time-consuming cleaning with scrubbing and cleaning of hard-to-reach areas.
For ultra-fast cleaning, we recommend EnduroShield glass. This treated glass is specially designed for easy cleaning and is proven to reduce cleaning times by up to 90% thanks to its water and oil repelling properties. Only once-weekly gentle cleaning is needed with non-toxic chemicals like vinegar or mild detergent.
How do I clean my frameless shower screen?
Your frameless shower screens should be cleaned weekly to remove all deposits from the glass and hardware. Even if your shower screen looks relatively clean we recommend cleaning it every week to avoid a hard build-up forming. Use a microfibre cloth and a solution of water and mild detergent or vinegar to gently clean your hardware and screens.
Your frameless glass panels may be cleaned using Windex. Be sure to follow all manufacturer’s instructions on the bottle. Hardware including handles, hinges and brackets may be cleaned using 3M Stainless Steel Cleaner. Again, please ensure you follow all manufacturer’s instructions.
We recommend avoiding rough, gritty, abrasive or highly acidic or alkaline cleaners as these can cause irreparable damage to your shower screens. Use only cleaners intended for glass cleaning, never use products like Gumption, Jif, Ajax or Mr Muscle and even specific shower cleaners like Shower Power — these products should never be used on glass.
Do frameless shower screens leak?
No one wants a leaky shower. Over years of specialising in frameless showers, at Trinity, we have developed unique installation techniques and specialty materials to deliver a highly effective frameless shower screen system.
Are frameless shower screens safe?
Frameless shower screens made from heat toughened glass are perfectly safe. Manufactured annealed or ‘float’ glass is the typical glass used in other glass products and is very sharp when broken. This type of glass should never be used in shower screens. The Australian Standards for shower screen glass safety states that glass must be suitably strengthened, and the best way to do it is through heat toughening. Heat toughening is done by heating glass to approximately 600°C and then rapidly cooling it, creating glass that is five times tougher than float glass.
Glass used in shower screens is not only strong, it’s also designed to break into safer, crushed-ice like pieces when broken.

Will a frosted frameless shower screen look good in my bathroom?
A Claralite frameless shower screens can fit well with many different styles of bathroom. The subtle feel of the matt finish reduces reflectivity and makes for a softer mood. A common finish is still chrome and is likely always be. In a bathroom where colour is the star, a Claralite frameless shower screen will let the tiles and fixtures shine through without interrupting the flow of the room. In a clean, bright bathroom with minimalist white lines and ceramic fixtures, a frameless shower can enhance the lightness and add to the airy feel of the room.
The short answer is no matter what decor style you’ve chosen for your bathroom a frameless shower will work well, either enhancing the look of a modern, contemporary bathroom or blending seamlessly into a uniquely styled space.
What’s the difference between a frameless and a semi-frameless shower screen?
As the name suggests, a frameless shower screen has no frame at all while a semi-frameless shower combines both framed and frameless edges. Frameless shower screens are typically built from thicker glass than semi-frameless or framed shower screens. Frameless shower screen panels are connected to each other and to walls and using brackets and joints, leaving the rest of the panel free from a frame.
Semi-frameless showers don’t achieve the clean, minimalist style of a fully frameless shower. Additionally, semi-frameless showers contain more hardware fittings and fixtures which can gather grime, soap scum and dirt, making them harder to clean. They typically incorporate a bulky channel on the floor which causes a trip obstacle.
At Trinity Frameless Showers we only provide fully frameless showers.
Do you offer warranties on your frosted frameless shower screens?
