In 2010, Bob Sullivan, a columnist for NBC News suffered from minor cuts and a large gash on his foot after his glass shower door exploded and rained on him. After learning about this accident, Comprehensive Glass Works took the initiative to develop safer designs for glass shower doors.

Bathroom accidents are a common occurrence. While slips and falls are the two most common types of bathroom accidents, glass shower doors exploding or shattering into pieces also contributes to the statistics of 235,000 bathroom-related accidents each year.

Bob Sullivan wrote about the glass shower door exploding incident and also gave his safety tips for long-term care of shower doors. Read more about the incident here.

In his column, Sullivan wrote that he took care of installing the shower glass door himself. Shakeel Darugar, the owner of Comprehensive Glass Works advises that shower glass doors can break for a number of reasons and one of these reasons is incorrect or improper installation of the door. Darugar insists that homeowners let experts handle the installation of shower doors, shower enclosures and mirrors for safety measures.

When it comes to installations of shower doors, San Diego Shower Door expert Comprehensive Glass Works strictly follows the latest safety precautions. The same is true with the rest of the installations they take care of. The company also ensures that the materials they use for their shower doors, shower enclosures, mirrors, and all glass products they manufacture are always of the highest quality.

“We at Comprehensive Glass Works are doing everything we can to help bring down the cases of bathroom-related accidents,” said Darugar. “Many of these accidents can be prevented. On our part, we make sure that all the glass products we provide meet the highest impact standards of the industry and we also see to it that every installation we do is done properly and in compliance with the latest safety precautions. We also take it upon ourselves to inform the public about the best choices in shower doors and enclosures and give out helpful tips that can bring down the chances of bathroom-related accidents.

For shower doors, tempered glass is the safest material available. Tempered safety glass breaks into small pieces, therefore rendering the glass relatively harmless when it does break. To minimize the chances of shower doors breaking, Darugar also recommends that glass doors be handled with caution. Regular inspection for small cracks and chips should be done. Moving panels, door hardware and the entire door system should be given attention every so often. If anything is out of place or something does not feel right, Darugar recommends that a professional be called in to have the shower door checked.

“We have been in the glass industry for 25 years and we have done numerous glass installations. In every job we do, we always place our clients’ safety at the top of our priority list and we will continue to do so.”
