In addition to being useful, a custom-made glass shower screen adds sparkle and elegance to your bathroom. Whatever the size or configuration of your bathroom is, Vitrerie JP Brière is able to supply and place a custom-made shower screen.
Tempered glass shower screen
Our custom-made shower screens are made of tempered glass. What exactly is this type of glass and how is it produced? To make a shower screen, a simple 8 or 10 mm thick glass is first cut and shaped with the necessary cutouts to be able to attach accessories such as stiffeners, handles or hinges. After cutting and shaping it , the glass is passed through an oven at 600 ° Celsius and then quickly cooled. This treatment, which is called tempering, allows the glass to become very resistant to thermal and mechanical shocks. This process is however irreversible and afterwards it is impossible to cut the glass. In addition, if this type of glass breaks, it shatters into thousands of small pieces which are much less dangerous than the large pieces when normal glass breaks.
Your custom-made shower screen
Each bathroom is different. This is why it’s important to carefully study the possibilities of implementing a shower screen in order to optimize the space and have an aesthetic result. There are however some basic rules to observe. The first is that your glass shower screen must be held on all sides to avoid twisting. This implies for example that for a fixed shower screen, no corner can remain unsupported. This is why at the top of the shower screen it will be necessary to place a profile, a clamp or even a stiffener bar. Another important point is to make sure that the desired shower screen does indeed fit into your bathroom. If the glass does not pass the entrance door or cannot be put up straight, it becomes useless as tempered glass cannot be cut.
