Where can I buy spare parts?

You can obtain spare parts such as seals, profiles and other items from your local sales representative or via the order form on the website.


Is the assembly price included in the price?

No, the assembly price is calculated separately.


What is a measurement?

A measurement is the measurement and recording of a room in order to adapt the product precisely to your needs.


What is a tempered glass (ESG)?

ESG is toughened safety glass that builds up a strong internal tension through heat treatment. As a result, it has increased impact and shock resistance as well as increased flexural strength. If the pane breaks, the entire pane dissolves into a network of fragments that are predominantly blunt-edged and loosely connected to one another.


What is laminated safety glass (VSG)?

VSG or laminated safety glass consists of at least two panes of glass that are permanently connected by means of a tough, elastic and tear-resistant PVB film (polyvinyl butyral film) or EVA film (ethylene vinyl acetate film). In the event of breakage, the fragments adhere to the film and reduce the risk of injury.


What does RAL colour mean?

RAL colors are standardized colors in order to obtain true-color prints. To help you choose the right color, there are color fans with a corresponding number that is assigned to a specific color.


What is the difference between ceramic screen printing, ceramic digital printing and UV digital printing?

With ceramic screen printing, the ceramic color is printed onto the glass through a fine screen. You can choose from a wide variety of RAL colors, which can be applied over the entire surface in one or two colors to the glass.
Baked into the glass at high temperatures, they are robust, easy to clean and UV-resistant.

With the ceramic digital printing process, the print image is transferred directly from the computer to the printing machine and onto the glass. The process applies up to five different colors (red, green, blue, yellow and black) at the same time and enables a finer surface with a noticeably subtle structure. The color impression is almost identical from both sides.

With UV digital printing, the print image is printed on the glass surface in ceramic digital printing. The slightly satined appearance of the dried ink ensures brilliant colors. The UV curing after the print increases the strength of the print.


What is the use of the Heat Soak test?

The heat soak test is a heat storage test for single pane safety glass (ESG). To avoid spontaneous fractures, it is recommended to carry out this test. The toughened glass is heated to 280 ° C and the temperature is kept in the heat-soak oven for at least 4 hours.

There are no additional costs for goods worth over 25 euros.


What does flush installation mean?

If your shower enclosure is suitable for floor-level installation, the shower enclosure can be installed on a tiled shower area without a shower tray.


How do you achieve optimal splash protection?

If you have high “water tightness” requirements, you should take this into account when choosing your shower enclosure.
Our showers meet the technical requirements for splash water tightness regulated in DIN EN 14428. For the standardized leak test, small amounts of water, i.e. a few drops, are permitted to escape into the outside area of ​​the shower. Depending on the profile geometry, shape of the shower tray, glass construction, installation situation and the number and type of sealing profiles, more or less water escapes from the shower area. No shower is 100% splash-proof! Basically, framed and partially framed showers have a higher level of water protection than frameless showers. To counteract this, SPRINZ also offers frameless showers with pendulum fittings and a raise / lower mechanism. In addition, when cleaning your showers, we recommend always rinsing the glass from top to bottom and adding existing profile strips during installation or not removing them afterwards.


When do wearing parts have to be replaced?

That depends on your usage and maintenance. We only use high quality materials for our products.
However, plastic sealing profiles, water deflection strips and other components are subject to an aging process. Please replace these wearing parts whenever they no longer adequately fulfill their function.
Repairs due to wear and tear are not covered by the guarantee.

For the care of your shower you will find some information in our care tips for glass showers.


Why do I need silicone for the assembly of my shower enclosure?

Silicone is used for a proper seal and for the correct operation of your shower enclosure. After siliconizing, the shower partition must not be used for 24 hours so that the silicon can cure properly.


How long does it take to complete a shower?


  • Usually 3 weeks (without custom-made products, measurements and assembly)
  • Usually 6-8 weeks (with measurements and assembly)
