There are a variety of types of glass for a variety of situations. Laminated glass and tempered glass are also called safety glass. These glasses are used in different ways to minimize the risk of the end users and to satisfy the requirements of current building codes. We use tempered safety glass in all of our shower doors. When this glass is broken, it breaks into thousands of small pieces which makes potential injury minimal compared to standard annealed glass. Laminated glass has a variety of safety and security advantages. It is made of two pieces of annealed glass that are laminated together. When broken, this glass typically stays in place.
That depends on the glass. Call us and we will help determine this.
Ultraclear glass is available. It has much less tint than regular
Heavy glass shower doors are produced from 3/8” or ½” thick glass and are held together with solid brass hardware (coated in a variety of finishes) that attaches the pieces of glass together in an attractive way. They are available in over 20 unique finishes that are designed to match today’s most popular plumbing finishes. Heavy glass shower typically cost more than framed shower doors.
Framed shower doors are made from 3/16” or ¼” thick glass and are held together with an aluminum frame available in about 10 finishes. These doors are usually less expensive than heavy glass doors.
Framed shower doors are available in standard heights of 68.5, 72, 80, and 84 inch as well as custom heights.
Heavy glass doors are cut to custom sizes. There are
restrictions based on weight and width that we have to abide by. These vary from shower to shower.
99% of the shower doors we sell right now are with clear glass. There are a variety of other glass styles that are available and on display in our showroom.
This depends on several factors, including whether you select a framed door or a heavy glass door. Product and schedule availability also tends to vary. Please feel free to call us at 225-272-9143 to discuss specifics on your project.
Every shower door is unique and we have to have all of the final measurements in order to make sure we have a good fit. Framed shower doors can be adjusted to fit the space. Heavy glass showers are cut to fit the exact space they are being installed in and must be custom cut at a tempering plant.
All shower doors have the possibility that they may leak…. Some designs more than others. At M&M, we try to advise our customers of this at the initial consultation or on their quote form. There are a lot of factors that contribute to this including but not limited to the design of the shower, the size of the shower, the size and type of shower head, the number of shower heads, the direction of the shower heads, the design of the shower door, water pressure, etc. We try to look at the overall design and advise the customer accordingly, but ultimately until someone takes a shower inside, we don’t know what is going to happen.
Heavy glass shower doors are designed with “gaps” These gaps are penetrable by water. Factory spec gaps on these doors are between 1/8” and 7/16” depending on the specific hardware used and the location. While heavy glass shower doors are the most popular shower doors at this time, they also have more opportunity to leak than their framed counterparts. At M&M we try to help you design in a fashion that minimizes your risk.
While it is certainly physically possible to do this, it is not advisable as mold and mildew will collect and penetrate the drywall.
There are a variety of design options available to support showers at the head. You do not have to always have header on top of a shower, but sometimes depending on design and cost considerations it is the best option. Your sales rep will help determine the best options for you.
There are lots of different ways to design shower doors. At M&M we try to take your vision for your door and make it a reality. That’s our job! We also advise you of the advantages and disadvantages of designs.
Weight is a concern of heavy glass shower doors. Stability is also a concern as you get taller. We will recommend the best glass to achieve the design you would like while considering the engineering of the door systems and your particular desires for the design as well as cost.
