Second in new technical resources series available for purchase online in the NGA Store.

The National Glass Association (NGA) is pleased to announce the publication of the Frameless Shower Enclosures Design Guide, the second guide available in NGA's new technical resource category. The new design guide category is intended to fill a targeted need for more in-depth guidance and recommendations related to design and installation best practices for the glazing and glass products industry.

"The Frameless Shower Enclosures Design Guide brings together information from across the industry to provide guidance on the recommended design approach to frameless shower enclosures. As the interior design trend for more glass and low profiles continues to grow, this design guide fills a long-held gap in the information available on the product,” explains Urmilla Sowell, NGA advocacy & technical director.

The new design guide discusses design considerations for frameless shower enclosures including doors and fixed panels, dimensional and weight tolerances and limitations, hardware and structural support, visual quality expectations, and cleaning and maintenance guidelines. It also addresses specialty glass considerations when using patterned or coated glass.

“The frameless shower industry has been working towards issuing a safety-minded design guideline for decades,” shared task group chair Danny Donahue, FHC, Inc. "With the publishing of this new resource, NGA has succeeded in addressing the needs of a billion-dollar business that, until now, has functioned with tribal knowledge passed from one glazier to another. This design guide is the document frameless shower installers have been clamoring for to support their design methods with an emphasis on safety.”

Download the Frameless Shower Enclosures Design Guide today, which is available among a host of additional resources in NGA's Store at glass.org.
