Shower Doors, Enclosures & Tub Enclosures
Capital Glass is a full service glass, shower & a bathtub enclosure dealer. We provide material and installation of heavy glass and traditional glass shower enclosures. The term frameless is often used for both heavy glass and traditional glass shower enclosures. Originally, each piece of glass needed to be framed in aluminum. Advances in glass tempering technology allowed for the frame to be removed from each panel, and the term ‘frameless’ was born.
These early frameless showers still required perimeter framing to hold the enclosure in place. At Capital Glass we refer to these types of enclosures as Traditional Glass Shower Enclosures. Recently the use of heavy glass (3/8” or 1/2” tempered glass) and specially designed hardware, has allowed for the creation of shower enclosures without the perimeter framing.
