What is the difference between a Framed unit & a Frameless unit?
Framed units are, the more traditional style of shower doors which include aluminum framework around the glass. Frameless units provide a more contemporary open look as they use a minimal amount of framework around the glass. Both units offer the same amount of safety and stability, so the choice between the two is usually based on taste not necessity. Frameless units are available in 3/8Ã¢ÂÂ and 1/2Ã¢ÂÂ glass.
