A perfectly even wall surface is very important since the stationary side panels are set directly against the finished walls
Aiken, SC (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Dreamline Vitreo shower doors have a unique frameless design with two stationary glass panels on both sides and a swivel door mounted on a pivot mechanism in the middle. The door is reversible which allows for a right or left opening installation. Vitreo shower doors are made out of 3/8” thick, clear tempered glass. The glass has been factory treated with DreamLine’s exclusive ClearGlass™ for superior protection and easy maintenance. The Vitreo door doesn’t have an out-of-plumb or width adjustment, thus a precise measurement before ordering is recommended. The walls must be perfectly plumb and square with the threshold. It is advisable to have the door opening measured by a professional after the final finishing materials have been installed; if the estimations are done prior to i.e. ceramic tile installation, the thickness of the tile plus the added thickness of the mortar have to be taken into account. A perfectly even wall surface is very important since the stationary side panels are set directly against the finished walls (held in place by two small brackets). Since the door is frameless the glass panels are sealed around the walls and the bottom threshold with a bead of silicone sealant. The pivoting door is sealed with a magnetic seal strip installed along the vertical edge of the door and the stationary panel.
The Vitreo shower doors come with two hardware finishes: polished chrome and brushed nickel.
Dreamline Vitreo offers two shower door models:
- SHDR-21467610-01 chrome (SHDR-21467610-04 brushed nickel) - the door is 76” tall with the overall width of 46 1/8”. The pivoting door is 25 7/8” wide, while the panels are 9 3/8” wide each.
- SHDR-21587610-01 chrome (SHDR-21587610-04 brushed nickel) - the door is 76” tall with the overall width of 58 1/8”. The pivoting door is 25 7/8” wide, while the panels are 15 3/8” wide each
Dreamline recommends, in order to insure long lasting life of the glass shower doors, to wipe them off after each use with a soft cloth. Rinse and wipe of the glass using either soft cloth or squeegee to prevent soap buildup. Never use abrasive cleaners and cleaning products that contain scoring agent because this may scratch the surface. Never use bristle brushes or abrasive sponges.
To assure a long lasting finish the owner needs to wipe off the metal parts after each use with a soft cloth. Never use abrasive cleaners or cleaning products containing ammonia, bleach or acid. If accidentally used, the surface needs to be rinsed as soon as possible to prevent finish corrosion. After cleaning the shiny finishes, they need to be rinsed thoroughly and wiped dry with soft cloth. When applying stainless steel cleaner or polish never use abrasive sponge or cloth, steel wool or wired brushes.
