Showering

Structure and Door Opening

In terms of product properties, product appearance and function, our shower enclosures can be divided into several categories: fully-framed structures, semi-framed structures and frameless structures. Each product is specific in terms of appearance, function and price. The main requirement of customers buying shower enclosures is watertightness. Framed design is always more watertight than other types of design. Therefore, a sliding door will always be preferable because no water can drip onto the ground outside the shower enclosure while opening or closing it. To guarantee that the product is truly watertight, the manufacturer‘s installation instructions must be duly followed. To ensure optimum functionality, it is also necessary to use products of only one brand. Hence when installing a RAVAK shower enclosure, we recommend using a RAVAK shower tray as well, since these have been developed and tested to comply with all other RAVAK products.

Fully-framed structure – Supernova range
Glass panels are set into a circumferential aluminium structure with high-quality surface finish. Shower enclosures are also reinforced with vertical profiles, which increase their resistance to careless treatment.

 

Semi-framed structure – Blix, Pivot and Elegance range
It is a lightweight structure – it has no vertical inner profiles.

 

Frameless structure – SmartLine, Brilliant and Whitewater range
Shower enclosures with frameless structure are composed only of safety glass panels and hinges, which are the enclosures attached to the wall with. Movable door glass panels are at least 6 mm thick and fixed glass panels are even 8 mm thick to meet strict safety requirements. Hinges and covers are all-brass to be able to reliably hold heavy safety glass panels of a shower enclosure and withstand frequent use.

 

For surface finishes RAVAK uses epoxy-polyester coating, which is the most expensive powder coating available and proven to provide the best properties: the coatings are elastic, resistant to chemicals, colourfast and non-aging.

You can choose from a number of options for opening shower doors according to your liking.

  • Sliding (Supernova, Blix)

    Sliding shower door allows water to run off freely into the shower tray/drain area, without water leaking outside of the enclosure. The AntiBlock system provides quiet and reliable operation of the above mentioned shower enclosures.
