The durability of these frameless glass railing panels means that they are perfectly suited for both indoor and outdoor use. For indoor use, these ingenious panels make a room feel bigger and add a touch of elegance. For outdoor use, they create an unobtrusive safety barrier. Children cannot easily climb them, nor can pets escape through them.
The panels are constructed out of tempered glass which means they are extremely strong and completely shatterproof, easily comparable to glass shower doors.
There are many different options available to choose from, but let’s first list a few more advantages:
· No maintenance is required. Some of our non-toxic cleaners and a simple squeegee will take care of the cleaning without any fuss. Your panels will shine like new every time.
· These panels are an excellent defense against wind and noise. This is also one of the reasons why they are often used at restaurants for outdoor seating areas.

Luxury Showers – Top 5 Reasons behind the No Tub in Bathroom Trend
Congratulations! Your decision to remodel your bathroom could not have come at a better time. There is of course never a wrong time, but you now have an opportunity to take advantage of a new trend. If you had remodeled before perhaps around 2019, you might not have had the chance to exchange your jetted tub for a luxury shower. The no-tub trend only started to gain traction after that time.
The No-Tub Trend Explained
A few decades ago, around the 80s and 90s, the luxury trend in new residential construction was large jetted tubs. They are indeed lovely; however, most homeowners readily admit that these tubs are rarely used. Most people prefer taking a daily shower over using the bath. This led to tubs taking up a large amount of space, yet they are barely being used. Many of these homes are now due for updating or will be very soon. Homeowners are generally looking for a more practical use of space. Instead of a large tub, they now prefer a spacious and more luxurious shower for daily use and enjoyment. This is the reason why so many tubs are being replaced by larger and more elegant showers.
