Classic Mirror and Glass is a family owned and operated full-service glass shop specializing in the sales and installation of custom tubs and shower enclosures throughout Connecticut. We are professional frameless shower door installers in Hamden, CT and the New Haven area. We are authorized dealers for many reputable manufacturers including both Century Bathworks and Easco Shower Door Company.
Whether your bathroom is small, or large, Frameless showers create the illusion of having a much larger space, which is key in creating a relaxing, open environment. Create a spa-like experience by using candles or dimmed lights. The clear glass allows light to spill into the shower area giving you warm, tranquil light. The look of frameless is perfect for any bathroom in the house. Wow your guests with a simple frameless look, or give your children the protection and safety frameless enclosures provide.
Frameless showers are made possible by the use of heavy tempered glass. Due to the thickness of the glass (3/8” to 1/2"), they don’t need any additional support by framing, so you’re left with a sleek, open look that is sure to wow everyone who sees it.
The benefit of updating your bathroom to include a frameless shower is the versatility of glass design. We can design almost any type of enclosure to fit your style including semi-frameless bypass, custom European Steamer Doors, or single glass partitions. Our design team is skilled in developing the look that adds luxury, and comfort to your bathroom. We provide practical solutions to construct enclosures that are multi-purpose and long lasting.
Every design starts with an in-home consultation. We will survey your space, take measurements and determine the best possible way to create the frameless shower enclosure of your dreams. We’ll discuss your goals, and gain a completely understanding of what you are looking for. It’s always important to us to get to know our clients. You’re the driving force behind what we do, and the reason why we’re still in business over 30 years since our inception!
Frameless showers are incredibly easy to clean. Due to the lack of frame, and therefore lack of frame pieces, the enclosure is more resistant to the build up of soap scum, mildew, and mold. We recommend using a coating on their glass to further prevent this build up.
We encourage our clients to use ClearShield Surface Protection to protect their glass enclosures. ClearShield Surface Protection repels water and oils, and is resistant to UV degradation. With a 10-year warranty it is guaranteed to extend the life of your frameless shower. For more information on ClearShield Surface Protection, and the other coating options for your frameless showers please contact us.
Framed glass shower enclosures are made from a thinner glass and are supported by metal structures, while semi-frameless enclosures feature a low profile metal frame with slightly thicker glass for strength and durability. Both options offer a more traditional look, with the same custom options and design.
