Shower GLASS upgradeS
When considering a new shower enclosure, we recommend researching these upgrades to enhance and prolong the beauty of the shower for years to come. These upgrades to the glass will improve the glass clarity and reduce the cleaning time necessary to maintaining that "New" look. Both options provide different aesthetics and are a constant request of interior designers and contractors to bring more value to the clients. The difference is clear and we are happy to provide any design advice when considering these options.
SEE THE BEAUTY, NOT THE GLASS
Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass is stunningly clear because it contains less than 10% of the iron present in typical clear glass, which means 91% more light shines through.
Its luxurious aesthetic is unmatched in its clarity.
As its thickness increases, Starphire Ultra-Clear™ glass gains a distinctive azure-blue edge, while the transparency of the glass remains ultra-clear, unlike typical clear glass, in which the green hue becomes more pronounced. Starphire® glass stays clear.
The image to the left demonstrates the difference between normal clear glass and the Starphire Ultra Clear™ glass.

Stop Corrosion Before it Starts
Bathroom glass has many enemies. Hard water, heat, humidity, soap and cleaning agents can corrode glass surfaces and dull their appearance. With ShowerGuard coated glass, homeowners can protect their shower enclosure for years to come.
ShowerGuard permanently seals the surface of the glass for lasting beauty with less maintenance. Using (large-area magnetron) sputtering coating technology, an invisible protective coating is fused to the surface, filling the peaks and valleys that occur naturally in glass and creating a smooth surface highly resilient to the dirt, soap and hard water buildup that dulls and etches ordinary glass.
Extended Beauty That Lasts
While after market spray-on treatments eventually wear off, the protection of ShowerGuard coated glass never needs to be reapplied. This coating is applied prior to installation, so be sure to consider this when making your purchase.
Why choose the Shower coating option?
ShowerGuard Clear coated glass brings powerful glass technology into your home. Enjoy lasting good looks for your shower enclosure with a permanent protective coating applied to clear glass during manufacturing.
No visible difference in clarity
Normal daily cleaning becomes easier and provides better results with less work
Protects your investment and extends the life of the glass because all the pores are sealed, reducing the hard water stains and improving aesthetics.
