Tempered glass is also an excellent material of choice for customized projects to suit any requirements and bring a touch of modern aesthetics to your bathroom. We use a sliding system to install sliding shower doors that optimize the bathroom’s space and provide greater comfort. Tempered glass frameless shower doors create a sense of lightness and make your bathroom look larger and more open.
Compared to other materials, a major benefit that comes with the installation of tempered glass shower enclosures is minimal maintenance. The unique characteristics of tempered glass do not allow any particles to attach to it, making water spots, smudges and stains extremely easy to clean. A solution of water and vinegar and a soft cloth are enough to bring back the original transparency and cleanness of the glass. Who doesn’t want that?!
Versatility is another great advantage when choosing to work with tempered glass. You can customize your own shower doors and complement your décor needs by choosing from a wide range of designs, patterns and prints that can elevate your bathroom’s style.

Material & Definition
Tempered glass is characterized by its strength, safety and durability. It acquires these properties through tempering, a special toughening process, achieved by chemical and thermal treatments.
The glass is first treated with high temperature and then cooled down in a high-pressure process. The stress that it undergoes makes the outer surface go into compression and the inner surface into tension, which makes it a lot stronger compared to normal glass.
Apart from its strength, it’s also characterized by its safety. Tempered glass shatters into small, granular pieces that are relatively harmless compared to the jagged shards that ordinary, annealed glass breaks into.
This property makes tempered glass a lot safer to use in a wide variety of applications, such as vehicle windows, shower doors, aquariums, architectural glass doors, tables, refrigerator trays, mobile screen protectors, bulletproof glass components, diving masks, plates and cookware.
Because of these multiple advantages and properties, architects and designers use tempered glass in many innovative and modern applications of residential, as well as of commercial character.
Why should you use tempered glass?
Regardless of the type of home you live in, tempered glass will make your space elegant, comfortable and visually larger, but most importantly, the glass elements in your home will be stronger, safer and more durable.
