Glass shower enclosure- What thickness should I use?
I'm remodeling a small (4x7) bathroom and want to go with a frameless glass enclosure to make the space feel bigger. I've been looking into the glass options and most of the places offer 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch glass. Both look nice to me.
What factors should I use in determining which thickness to go with? (besides the obvious cost difference)
1/4" flexes more than 3/8"
(1/4" is fine if there is a frame arrangement to re-inforce the glass structure)
If the tub/shower enclosure is made of fiberglass, do not use a frameless arrangement, as the fiberglass has no backer behind it, and cannot hold the extra weight of the 3/8" thick panels of glass.
