There’s no better way for Guardian to tell people about the quality of ShowerGuard than with our Lifetime Consumer Limited Warranty,” said Diane Turnwall, director of Interiors for Guardian Industries. “We’re very proud of our patented ion beam process, which is the key to the product’s longevity. It permanently seals the glass surface.”
ShowerGuard, part of the Guardian InGlass product family, launched in 2006 and was the industry’s first permanent shower glass protection. It has demonstrated steady growth over the years, now carried by more than 800 Registered ShowerGuard Dealers across the country, up from roughly 500 in 2010.
The protective seal is actually part of the glass itself, allowing the glass to withstand some of the harshest water conditions. In independent laboratory testing, ShowerGuard and other competitive products were exposed to hard water with dissolved silicates, which can be a challenge for any shower or shower door glass. After repeated exposure cycles, other products developed permanent stains while ShowerGuard retained its cleanability.
The Guardian ShowerGuard Glass Lifetime Consumer Limited Warranty is an improvement on the prior, 10-year plan. There are three key components to the new warranty:
It is non-transferable, meaning only the original purchaser is warranted. Proof of ShowerGuard purchase is required. 10 Year Limited Warranties will be grandfathered into the Lifetime Limited Warranty.
“We salute our Registered ShowerGuard Dealers and our fabricators,” Turnwall added. “If not for their ability to tell the story of this product – often as ShowerGuard owners themselves – and do such a great job on fabrication and installation, we wouldn’t have had the success that allows us to take this natural, next step to offer consumers the incentive of a lifetime limited warranty.”
