Starphire Crystal Clear Glass vs Standard glass

Glass types

Starphire Crystal Clear Glass is created using silica sand with a low iron content during the glass-making to reduce standard glass’s otherwise characteristic green tinge, giving it a much clearer superior appearance. It provides maximum transparency and clarity by providing crystal clear glass, unlike the green tint usually found in standard float glass.

Standard Clear Glass is the glass type most often used in glazing applications. Visually, standard glass has a ‘greenish’ tint, most obvious when the panel is viewed from the side.

Australian Standards for Shower Screens

The Building Code of Australia requires Shower Screens and Shower Doors to comply with Australian Standards AS/NZS 1288 and 2208 and be made of Grade A toughened glass or Grade B wired glass.

The minimum thickness of framed toughened glass (Grade A) is 4mm. The minimum thickness of the partly framed and frameless toughened glass is 6mm.

At Infinity Glass, we use a high-quality 10mm toughened grade A safety glass for all shower screens. Our team is highly experienced and meticulous installers in compliance with Australian Standard AS1288.


Suppose you are renovating, re-tiling, or building a new bathroom. In that case, we recommend purchasing your Custom Shower Screen early in planning your bathroom so we can assist you with ensuring your tiling layout and all structural supports are correctly positioned.

Door Seals: We provide a removable Plastic PVC Clear Water Seal to the underside of the door to seal the door panel of your Frameless Glass Shower Screen.

Glass Maintenance

It is important to keep your glass clean. Glass that is neglected will accumulate water spots, eventually turning into mineral deposits.

The best way to keep your glass free of potentially damaging water spots is to squeegee the glass after every use. Regular cleaning will save you a lot of work if deposits are not allowed to accumulate.

Hinges and other hardware maintenance

The best way to maintain hinges and other hardware is to wipe them down after every use. When the hardware is kept clean, it will not collect mineral deposits that require using soap solution to remove. After your shower, use a dry towel to dry the hinges thoroughly.
Weekly cleaning is suggested if you cannot dry your hinges after every use. Use a mild soap, warm water mixture, and soft, non-abrasive cloth. After you have cleaned the hardware, rinse it thoroughly with clean, warm water and dry it.

Never use abrasive cleansers of any kind on hinges and other hardware. Many components are coated with a clear lacquer that will be irreparably damaged if subjected to harsh abrasive chemicals or scrubbing devices.

What are the differences between a “semi frameless shower screen” and a “frameless shower screen?2023-08-10T12:10:52+10:00

The main difference between a “semi-frameless shower screen” and a “frameless shower screen” lies in the design and construction of the shower screen.

Semi Frameless Shower Screen:

  • A semi-frameless shower screen typically has a frame around the perimeter of the glass panels but usually not around the door itself.
  • The frame is usually made of aluminium or another material and is used to secure the glass panels and provide structural support.
  • A semi-frameless shower screen door may have a frameless appearance, but it is often attached to the frame with hinges.
  • Semi-frameless shower screens offer a more budget-friendly option than fully frameless ones while still providing a sleek and modern look.

Frameless Shower Screen:

  • A frameless shower screen has no visible framing around the glass panels or door.
  • The glass panels are usually thicker (commonly 10mm) and are secured with discreet, minimal hardware or fittings.
  • Frameless shower screens are known for their clean, minimalist, and contemporary appearance, allowing a seamless bathroom view and creating a sense of spaciousness.
  • Frameless shower screens are considered a premium option due to the precision and engineering required for their installation.
Can I install a corner shower screen in a small bathroom?2023-08-10T12:10:52+10:00

Absolutely! A corner shower screen is an ideal choice for small bathrooms. Thanks to its design, it efficiently uses the corner space that might otherwise be wasted. It frees up the rest of the bathroom by occupying the corner, creating more room for other elements. The glass panels of the shower screen also create an illusion of more space, making your small bathroom appear larger. With various designs available, you can find a corner shower screen that perfectly fits your small bathroom.

How does a frameless corner shower screen differ from a wall-to-wall shower screen?2023-08-10T12:10:52+10:00

A corner shower screen and a wall-to-wall shower screen differ primarily in their design and placement within the bathroom. A corner shower screen is designed to fit into a corner of the bathroom and typically has two glass panels forming a 90-degree angle, one of them being a door. On the other hand, a wall-to-wall shower screen spans from one wall to another across the width of the bathroom and usually has a sliding or pivot door. While both offer a modern look and efficient use of space, the choice often depends on your bathroom layout and personal preference.

What is Toughened Glass?2023-08-10T12:11:06+10:00

Toughened glass, also known as tempered glass, is a type of safety glass designed to be more resistant to breakage and shattering than ordinary annealed glass.

The toughening process involves heating the glass to a very high temperature and then rapidly cooling it using quenching. This creates a surface layer of compression on the glass, which makes it much more robust than regular glass. If the toughened glass does break, it will shatter into small, rounded pieces rather than sharp, jagged shards, which makes it much safer.

Toughened glass is commonly used in applications where safety is a concern, such as in car windows, building windows, shower screens, and glass doors. It is also used in other applications requiring increased strength and durability, such as furniture, kitchen appliances, and electronic devices.
