Striking fluted glass shower screen creations

 The fluted glass shower screen is a unique look

Fluted glass is right at the cutting edge of bathroom fashion. Fluted glass shower screens are sophisticated, eye catching and bold. Making a resurgence from the earlier part of the 1900’s, this patterned glass is appearing in many high end bathroom projects. The deep parallel lines are formed into one face when the glass is molten, leaving the shower side flat. The linear motif, blends seamlessly with a highly refined design theme, also featuring well in period hybrid bathrooms. Fluted glass is also known as reeded glass, and within the trade it is called narrowline glass.

A frameless glass shower screen is more hygienic because it’s easier to clean. Your frameless fluted shower screen needn’t have those messy frames and channels that hide grime and mould spores.

Finish your bathroom beautifully with a custom fluted frameless shower screen. Our expert builder will inspect your bathroom space and create a made to measure frameless shower that fits your bathroom perfectly.

Finish your bathroom with the sophisticated lines of reeded glass

Aside from it’s striking appearance, reeded glass provides a private showering experience, making it great for the family bathroom. Fluted glass also shows water drops and finger-prints less than flat glass, so is a time saver for years to come.

We always give same day quotes on customer frameless showers and can provide  fluted glass samples on request.

Types of fluted shower screens

We can compose a wide variety of fluted glass shower screens.

Our specialist builder will walk through your design and space with you, to configure the ideal shower for your specific taste and needs.

We can provide fluted shower screen in these types:

 

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.

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.
  • Fluted – Also know as Narrowline and Reeded 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 fluted shower screen be treated with Enduroshield ?

 

Yes it can. Additionally, fluted glass disguised water spot and finger-marks by virtue of the pattern.

 

Is the fluted surface on the inside or outside of the shower screen ?

 

The fluted surface is normally on the outside of the shower screen. This is essentially because the flat side is easier to clean.

How long does it take to install a frameless shower screen?

Our skilled installers will ensure minimal disruption and downtime to your home by installing your new shower screen quickly and efficiently.

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 fluted frameless shower screen look good in my bathroom?

 

A fluted frameless shower screens can fit well with many different styles of bathroom. The striking linear appearance works well with a more sophisticated design. Fluted glass also fits ideally with retro and period fusion bathrooms. A 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?

 

Yes. We offer 3 — 6 — 10-year warranties on our frosted frameless shower screens. The various elements of your shower screen will be protected for either three years, six years or ten years. All our shower screens are constructed using the highest quality tried and tested products and installed by skilled professionals specialising in frameless showers.
