PRACTICAL ADVICE ON WHICH ARE THE BEST SHOWER ENCLOSURES
The world of shower enclosures is wide and varied, there are shower enclosure solutions of all types and for all tastes; perhaps that is why when choosing a shower enclosure for our bathroom we ask ourselves a lot of questions about which one is the best, the material of the glass, the finish, etc.
Through this text, we hope to help you choose the right shower enclosure for you.
There are several criteria for choosing the best shower enclosure:
first of all, we always advise you to choose a tempered glass instead of plain glass, and Megius proposes Tecnovetro, that is a tempered glass that, with a membrane thickness of 100 microns, in case of breakage, remains in place, fragmenting into small non-cutting particles, so as to limit any damage to the environment and people.
In fact, according to UNI EN14428, shower enclosure glass must be tempered, i.e. with defined standards of fragmentation in the event of breakage and performance.
Secondly, since the glass has a porous and irregular surface that over time favors the deposit of residues of limestone and dirt, Megius offers the Protective Glass treatment.
This special treatment, applied by qualified personnel, closes these irregularities thanks to nanotechnology, giving the glass walls of the shower enclosure anti-water pick-up properties, making the glass pane transparent.
A third factor to consider is the thickness of the glass: in recent years, an average thickness of 6 to 8 millimeters has been preferred to ensure greater durability and beauty. Megius offers various products with both 6 and 8 millimeters glass and examples are Zen, Zen XL, Prisma 1.0 and Prisma 2.0.
A fourth factor can be linked to the aesthetic side, with the choice of glass finish, in which case personal taste takes precedence. Depending on the model you choose, Megius can offer you different types of finishes such as Transparent, Extra Clear, Smoked, Opaline, Chinchilla, Orange, Reflective Glass, Mirror Glass, and various types of screen printing.
These are the basic criteria to take into account when purchasing a good shower enclosure that will meet your requirements and needs.
