What is the average life expectancy of a shower room?
In fact, frameless glass shower doors tend to last longer than framed doors because metal frames are usually the first area to show signs of wear. Metals often start pitting, corroding or collecting minerals, which can significantly affect the appearance of the entire shower room. However, metal frames with powder coatings tend to be more durable than frames made of aluminum or other low-quality metals.
Another factor affecting the service life of glass shower room is whether it has sliding door or hinged door. We all know that the sliding door slides on a metal track, which provides a slot where bath water can easily get trapped. Although it has no effect in the short term, over time, if water is in this tank, it will begin to corrode the metal.
This will not only damage the appearance of the metal, but also the corrosion on the track may affect the smooth sliding ability of the door. Therefore, it is not difficult to find that compared with sliding shower door, hinged door is usually preferable to sliding shower door. And similar to the frame, the metal hinge with powder coating often has a longer service life than the metal hinge without powder coating.
The quality of products is also related to service life. For example, our shower hinges are made of high quality materials such as brass. Also, it should pass 120 hour Salts Pray Tests and more than 50000 time opening and closing tests.
