Semi frameless Shower Screens

A semi frameless shower screen differs slightly from frameless shower screens because it comes with a partial frame, normally aluminum. The frame joins the wall and provides a seal for the purposes of blocking the gap that lies between the wall and the glass thereby preventing the water from escaping. In the case of when a bathtub is involved, the frame lies on the ledge of the bathtub. This helps distribute the weight of the shower screen. It is easy to distinguish between the frameless shower screens and the semi frameless ones because of the individual parts that hold the screen in position. For frameless shower screens, it is held in place by a thin 50mm (2inch) thin metal clip. For semi-framed, the screen is held in place by a continuous bracket that runs the length of the glass.
