What to Look for in Glass Shower Doors

January 06, 2021

Glass shower doors in Toronto are a popular bathroom material for most homeowners because of their functionality and pleasant aesthetic.


When it comes to the look of glass, there are plenty of different textures and patterns you can choose from such as clear glass, cast glass, frosted or acid-etched glass, patterned or coloured glass.


If you often share your bathroom, a privacy glass that is heavily textured or frosted is a perfect choice. Other crucial considerations to make in selecting the right glass shower doors for your Toronto home are glass material type, thickness and protection. 


When it comes to improved safety and durability, tempered glass is a more suitable option than the annealed glass option. It has been utilized on shower doors for decades now because it resolves the key issue of personal safety during a shower. It can also be operated as a swinging or sliding door, and even as a wall in a shower enclosure as it does not easily break. Conversely, if you prefer to have an extra safety precaution, laminated glass is a better choice because it’s not likely to cause serious injury in case of accidental glass breakage. Laminated glass shower doors in Toronto may look like normal glass but they are actually made of two sheets bonded to a central layer of clear vinyl. Once it breaks, the fractured pieces remain intact because they still adhere to the vinyl. 


In terms of how the glass can be protected from harmful or corrosive elements, it’s very essential to extend the service life of the glass. Glass protection is a great option if you want to reduce maintenance. There are various techniques to treat and protect the sealed surfaces of the glass. However, if you are on a budget, glass shower doors can also be treated with a high-end sealant which is applied after manufacturing. This can protect the glass from most stains and chemical corrosion.
