How should we choose the glass of shower room?
Regarding the glass of the shower room, the thicknesses of 6mm, 8mm and 10mm are most common. The glass used in the shower room is generally tempered glass mainly considering the safety issues. Although the tempered glass will increase the self-explosion rate of the glass, the size of the fragments after the glass explosion will not cause serious harm to people.
In the selection of shower room, in order to ensure the safety of consumers, qualified and complete tempered glass must be strictly used. Tempered glass is 3-5 times higher than ordinary glass with the same thickness, which greatly enhances the impact resistance. How thick is the glass in the shower room to be safe? The shower rooms on the market are arc-shaped type, in-line type, etc. The thickness of the glass is related to the shape of the shower room. For example, arc-shaped glass has modeling requirements, generally 6mm is appropriate, too thick is not suitable for modeling, and the stability is less than 6mm thick. Similarly, if you choose a in-line shower room, you can choose 8mm or 10mm glass. However, it should be noted that with the increase of glass thickness, the overall weight will increase accordingly, which requires higher quality of relevant hardware. The glass with thicker glass is heavier, and the performance reference and design requirements for bearing and moving parts such as pulleys and door clamps are much higher. If the hardware accessories can not keep up, the overall service life of the shower room will be reduced. In addition to paying attention to the thickness, do not neglect the international standard glass when selecting the shower room.
In general, when decorating the shower room, the selection of glass thickness should be based on the actual measurement size to consider the installation of appropriate shower room glass. Hope this article can help you buy satisfied shower room products.
