A few options for shower remodel glass from framelessshowers.com Although 3/8″ & 1/2″ clear glass are the most common, there are several additional glass options available to personalize your shower enclosure including custom sandblasting, glass etching and patterned glass. The availability of pattern glass often varies, so please check with your sales representative if you are interested in a pattern or obscure glass to see what is currently available.
Neither products are "self cleaning" but both allow you to clean the glass to a like new appearance. When unprotected glass is not cleaned daily, the water and residue will actually etch the surface of the glass causing permanent water spots. Both of these products prevent the etching from occurring. We have had great feedback from customers on both products. Please let us know if you have any questions on either one of these products.
ShowerGuard is actually a "different" type of glass. The surface is ionically bonded making the surface less porous and nearly impossible for anything to adhere to it, thus preventing the etching. ShowerGuard has a LIFETIME warranty.
Enduroshield is a product applied to the surface of the glass that causes the water and residue to bead up and not adhere to the glass. Basically this is like Rain-X on steroids. Enduroshield can be applied to any type of glass. Enduroshield has a 3 year warranty. The product does not need to be re-applied.
