I'm wondering how you were able to do a 10mm glass without a header of some sort...we are trying to do this in one of our showhomes and the company we are working with will not allow the glass to be frameless, without a seemingly endless number of hinges. Our door is also hinged to the wall.?? Any input?

I'm thinking it might be held together with ultraviolet cured glue. It's a fairly recent technology innovation and not all glass shops make use of it.

I would start with a call to the NGA, or National Glass Association to find out if their is a trained specialist near you.

No, we build custom glass shower doors for a living, Anything 3/8" and above can be installed without a header on the top. We bevel our glass on the 90 degree returns and then sometimes for added support we use a clip 10" down from the top of the glass. There are many ways to do this without a header. You DONT want to use more than 2 hinges per door. It will give you problems and if you dont have someone who knows how to install frameless units properly you will really be in a mess. You can view our website and see how we do things at www.mrshowerdoorde.com Good Luck! Hope this helps...

Also, just an idea,,, If anyone uses Antique Glass, like i believe this picture is, use a "brassy" finish with it along with tan and neutral colors. This REALLY dress's up the glass and makes a big difference. I know brass is not a finish that is favored at the moment, but Antique Brass and Oil Rubbed Bronze (the light colored one) make this glass pattern really stand out. I know it sounds a bit strange, but chrome, brushed nickel, satin chrome and stainless steel really makes the pattern in the glass almost disappear! Try it and you will be amazed in the difference!
