Brand new phenomenon architecture, introduced by some designers is filling the house with light transparent constructions, which give a lot of light and feeling of a space to the premises. At the same time, comfort and high functionality remains very urgent. Material, suggested by such designers is absolutely environmentally appropriate – it is tempered glass. At Shower Doors Calabasas, we can install, repair, and replace any glass product including shower door, mirrors, glass, and windows.
Tempered glass or so-called safety glass is an ordinary glass, which is tempered on a very high temperature – about 600 degrees – and then rapidly cooled. After such treatment glass characteristics become much better. Tempered glass has 6-7 times better impact resistance and can sustain high temperatures up to 300 degrees. In addition, sand-jet pictures look brilliant on it. Tempered glass is used quite widely; show-windows, greenhouses’ roofs, glass doors, partitions and ladders are usually of it and this list is not complete.
The area of shopping malls and offices is need of proper organization. Partitions, made of tempered glass, can separate premises into zones and saving their integrity at the same time. They can have form of any complexity, so they match any interior wonderfully.
Glass objects can be both a main zest and neutral element of the interior. Due to the transparence such objects dissolve in the space and make it visually bigger. Therefore, tempered glass is widely and successfully used today in the ultra-modern interiors.
Glass and Accessories
You can get creative when designing your shower enclosure, in more ways than one. Homeowners who like their privacy tend to go with more obscure glass finishes. These can include antique; sandblasted; bubble, which gives the illusion of rain droplets on the glass; and satin edge, a whiter opaque effect, which leaves only a silhouette visible from the outside.
Customers also get to choose finishes for the hinges on their doors, pick the hinges’ location and choose matching hooks for robes or towels, if they wish. All of the metals used on shower doors resist rust and corrosion. Customers can choose aluminum, chrome, satin nickel, oil-rubbed bronze or other finishes, which are available from most manufacturers.
