Glass Shower Enclosure industry status and buying tips

Nov. 18, 2019

In order to meet some market demands, some Shower Enclosure Suppliers have broken through a single transparent glass, adding a lot of bright colors, such as white, gold, silver, red, yellow, royal blue, etc., and the color of the bathroom is integrated into the body. The functions of cleaning and decoration are combined into one. Some shower rooms are made of sandblasted gold or sandblasted silver, and the colors are luxurious. However, in general, users who make transparent glass still account for the vast majority, because the tempered glass surface will reduce the glass quality level if it is treated otherwise.

Glass Shower Enclosure shopping tips:

1. Look at the glass

(1). See if the glass is transparent, with or without defects such as noise and bubbles.

Analysis: Imperfections in the production of glass materials or defects in the process can cause defects such as noise and bubbles in the glass, reducing the hardness and strength of the glass.

(2). See if the 3c mark is certified on the original glass.

Analysis: 3c certification is the abbreviation of China's compulsory product certification, shower room products without this logo can not be sold.

(3). look at the complete tempered glass fragment model

Analysis: According to the national standard, the safety of the tempered glass should reach 40 or more per 50*50mm area. 2. Look at the aluminum material.

2.Framed Shower Enclosure to see the frame

(1). look at the hardness of aluminum

Analysis: The aluminum in the shower room often needs to support the weight of dozens of kilograms or even hundreds of kilograms of glass. If the hardness and thickness are not good, the shower life will be very short, and the hardness and thickness of all aluminum materials are important indicators. The thickness of the qualified shower room aluminum is above 1.2mm, and the upper glass hanging glass should be 1.5mm or more. The hardness of aluminum can be tested by a hand-pressed aluminum frame. Aluminum with a hardness of 13 degrees or more is difficult for adults to deform by hand.

(2). See if the surface of the aluminum is smooth, with or without chromatic aberration and trachoma, and the profile finish.

Analysis: When used, the used aluminum is not smooth enough on the surface, there will be obvious chromatic aberration and trachoma, and the finish of the special section is dark.

3. Look at the pulley

(1). look at the material of the pulley and the sealing of the wheel seat

Analysis: The wheelbase of the pulley should use materials that are resistant to pressure and heavy, such as 304 stainless steel and high-end synthetic materials. The sealing of the wheel seat is good, the water vapor is not easy to enter the wheel, and the smoothness of the wheel is guaranteed.

(2). look at the fit of the pulley and aluminum track

Analysis: The pulley and the track should be tightly matched, the gap is small, and it is not easy to fall off when subjected to an external force to avoid a safety accident.

(3). See the adjustment function of the wall material and wall clamp

Analysis: The wall material (wall clamp) is the aluminum material connected to the shower room and the wall. Because of the tilting of the wall and the offset of the installation can cause the glass of the wall to be twisted, the glass self-explosion occurs. Therefore, even the wall material should have the vertical and horizontal adjustment function, so that the aluminum material can be twisted with the wall and the installation to eliminate the distortion of the glass and avoid the self-explosion of the glass.
