Need To Know

Why does my shower have vinyl fins?

In Short

In Short

These are referred to as “deflectors” and control the space between a shower door & glass panel.

  • Deflectors help keep in as much moisture & water as possible.
  • These can be installed on to the door itself or on fixed panels.
  • They reduce the space between the glass panel & door.

NOTE: With direct flow you can expect some water to escape.

Why is my glass or mirror split into multiple pieces?

In Short

In Short

We have established maximum sizes for mirror and glass primarily for the safety of our staff, transportation and access on site.

  • Glass can be handled 6 – 10 times before it leaves our facility.
  • This allows for safe access to the worksite, such as door openings, carrying up and down stairs, tight locations and awkward positioning.
  • Our maximum size for 10mm glass is 32 sq ft
  • Our maximum size for 5mm glass/mirror is 42 sq ft

Why does my mirror appear to be scratched?

In Short

In Short

These marks appear to be scratches in the silver but are actually ink transfer from the production process.

  • They will appear vertically or horizontally as a straight solid line or small dots.
  • These can be removed with a new razor blade and some glass cleaner.

Why does my shower appear to be rusting?

In Short

In Short

None of the material we use when installing a shower can rust.

  • Everything we use is extruded from aluminum (they are annodized or painted material). Even our screws are stainless steel.
  • Shampoos, conditioners & soaps can leave behind a pink / brown residue (resembling rust).
  • Scrubbing the affected area is the best way to remove residue.

 

Why have the edges of my mirror turned black?

In Short

In Short

Our mirrors are cut from larger sheets which exposes the edge of the silver mirror backing.

  • As actual silver is used to create the reflective surface it is susceptible to tarnishing.
  • We recommend using your fan before, during and for 30 minutes after showering.
  • Apply glass cleaner to a cloth to avoid over application (excess cleaner may promote tarnishing).
