Structure and door opening
In terms of product properties, product appearance and function, our shower enclosures can be divided into several categories: Fully-framed, semi-framed and frameless structures. Each product is specific in terms of appearance, function and price. The main requirement of customers buying shower enclosures is watertightness. A framed structure 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 made by the same 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 ranges
A lightweight structure without any vertical inner profiles.
Frameless structure – SmartLine, Brilliant and Whitewater ranges
Shower enclosures with a frameless structure are composed only of safety glass panels and the hinges with which the enclosures attached to the wall. 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 made entirely of brass in order to reliably support heavy safety-glass panels of a shower enclosure and withstand frequent use.
For surface finishes, RAVAK uses an epoxy-polyester coating which is the most expensive powder coating available and is proven to have the best properties: Elastic, resistant to chemicals, colour-fast and non-ageing.
You can choose from a number of options for opening shower doors according to your tastes.
- Sliding (Supernova, Blix)
Sliding shower doors allow water to run off freely into the shower tray/drain area, without water leaking outside of the shower enclosure. The AntiBlock system provides quiet and reliable shower enclosure operation.
- Folding and sliding (Supernova)
Folding doors provide a large entrance width while maintaining a small construction opening. The smallest version (SDZ2) has a construction opening width of 67-71 cm and an entrance width of 50 cm. The inward folding method prevents water from running off outside the shower enclosure.
- Rotating pivoted (Supernova)
This is a simple door-opening system that requires no maintenance. The hinge is made from high-quality maintenance-free plastic.
- Rotating pivoted (Pivot)
A simple and unbreakable door-opening system requiring absolutely no maintenance. The custom hinge is made from high-quality stainless steel embedded into the body of the hinge.
- Outward opening (Pivot, SmartLine, Brilliant, Elegance)
Easy entry, inspiring design. These products are bound to be the centrepiece of your bathroom.
- Inward and outward opening (Elegance)
A proud classic design offering an extremely wide entry with inward and outward door opening. You can air out the shower enclosure after use without dripping any water on the bathroom floor – available with several products in the Elegance range.
