Tough Glass process a large range of glass products suited for glass shower screens. Being a local glass processor, we can custom make glass shower screens to size maximising on the aesthetics of your project with quick processing lead times. Customers of Tough Glass can obtain toughened glass certificates guaranteeing glass has been processed in accordance with Australian Standards.

Glass shower screens are a popular selection in bathrooms and ensuites. The benefits of a custom measured to size screen allows a perfect fit for your opening and adds flexibility with the door size, panel size and cut outs giving a fully customised finish to suit your requirements. Glass provides a modern touch and will give the perception of a larger space being almost invisible. Shower screens are available in a few forms, for example; fully frameless, semi frameless, fully framed and sliding options.

Glass Selections:

What type of glass is safe to use in a shower screen? Grade A safety glass should always be used in shower screens. Most often toughened glass will be used, if broken, toughened glass will shatter into small particles opposed to large, sharp shards like that of annealed glass. Toughened glass is up to five times stronger than annealed glass. On some occasions laminated glass may be used in fully framed shower screen options. Laminated glass is also a type of Grade A safety glass, but edges cannot be exposed in wet/ high moisture areas as the PVB interlayer can de-laminate over time.

Can a shower screen be made to size from building plans? A shower screen can be quoted from building plans but most often a glazier will complete an onsite measure after tiling has been completed in the bathroom or ensuite prior to ordering the shower screen. This is best practice in case opening sizes change or the opening is slightly out of square to guarantee a flush, customised fit. Once glass has been cut and toughened, changes can not be made (even if you need to reduce the size) making it an expensive exercise if shower glass needs to be re-ordered.   

How do I go about installation? Tough Glass are specialists in processing and supply of glass products and do not install finished products. We do have an extensive range of clients qualified to undertake on site measures and installation we can happily recommend. Contact us.

Regardless of the glass shower screen application you select it is best to consult with a qualified glazier who can provide advice on selection and installation of glass and glazing whilst ensuring regulations are met and safety is not compromised.

  • May I just say that your staff at Tough Glass are providing us with excellent service. We have never in all the years experienced such a service. I rang on Wednesday to request a couple of urgent panels for which we collected this morning. That truly is amazing!!

    Everybody should use Tough Glass and I would never use anyone else regardless of pricing like some do. I don’t think we have ever received a bad piece of glass from Tough Glass either. It’s a credit to you and your staff.
