I went in looking to see how much 3/8" tempered glass would be. Over $350....
The glass company said that was serious overkill and 1/4" would be fine. $32
There glass case they use as a counter has 1/4" non-tempered glass top.
They claimed that tempering doesn't make the glass that much stronger, it just makes it safer if it does break.
Guess I will have to be careful when dancing in the shower.
I had really planned on practicing my Chuck Norris roundhouse moves in there to...dang.
I did order Enduroshield coating for the glass and tile/grout.http://www.enduroshieldusa.com/
I know my last shower doors looked terible after a couple months and were really hard to clean.
If this stuff is half as good as they claim, it will be worth every penny.
Our water has a lot of calcium or lime that builds up and etches glass.
I can' t have that in front of my TV....
At $32 I could replace the glass every couple years if I just had to.
at $350 I would be stuck with it.
