Glass Shower Enclosure Myths & Facts
Myth 1. Enclosed glass showers are hard to keep clean. One of the major benefits of installing an enclosed glass shower is that they are easy to keep clean. If soap scum or water stains develop on the glass, it can be removed with the proper cleaner and a fine scraper tool.

Out of all of the shower enclosures you can install, glass is actually the cleanest and easiest to maintain.
Myth 2. The glass cracks or shatters easily. Many people fear that the glass will shatter or crack if you slip and fall. When a glass shower shatters it can leave large sharp pieces of glass that can lead to major injury and even death, right? Well, no, not really. The glass used for frameless or framed glass shower enclosures are designed to be extremely durable. Additionally, the glass is tempered which means if for some crazy reason the glass shatters, they will break into tiny pieces, preventing major injury. The glass is also resistant to corrosion and other elements that can weaken other materials. Simply put, glass shower enclosures will not crack or shatter easily and are designed to be extremely durable.
