Blue Diamond provides a helping arm

stabilise and brace the frame-less glass panels that are used in modern shower systems. With the growing trend towards minimalist designs incorporating bigger and heavier glass panels, the bracing arm facilitates a hygienic, frame-less construction, which saves on costs. The shower cubicle manufacturer had tried to source a standard component but without success and approached Blue Diamond to see if the company could provide a bespoke component. The design comprises a glass saddle, which can be glued or screwed into position, an adjusting boss, an arm (which can be cut to length without the cut being visible) and an anchor block, which is used to secure the assembly to the wall. Stainless steel screws are used to provide a long working life.
The highly polished chrome-plated-on-brass components provide excellent resistance to corrosion with alternative finishes offered in brass-effect or white to suit different shower styles. The assembly is supplied in custom packaging with a complete kit of fixtures and fittings. It comprises cast components (the anchor block and glass saddle), a turned adjusting boss and the arm, which is cut from standard bar. To achieve a mirror finish, the brass components need to be well prepared by precision machining and polishing before being chromium plated.
