[quote:Anonymous Coward 1099279:MV8xMjkwMTUwXzIxMDk5NTE2XzlBRUI3NDVD] Probably faulty manufacture. Streess is induced at the suspension points and can start to develop hairline cracks. When one of these cracks reaches a tempering stress cell (the samll pieces of crumb glass you get left with all over the floor) it will propagate explosively through the whole sheet. Boom and doom in one go. I've had this happen on tempered glass in a greenhouse roof. (glazing strips were overtightened). Makes a hell of a mess [/quote]
Sleeping soundly we were awoken @ 3:30 a.m. by a strange crash coming from inside the house. Looking around did not see anything until I turned on the light in the master bathroom and saw that one of the shower doors shattered into a thousand pieces (tempered glass)
For the last few months there were popping sounds coming from the bathroom and I didn't think too much about it thought expansion or whatever.
i stepped on a sliver of glass and it seems to be still in my skin - can't find it or feel it. the mess of glass mostly is in the shower stall (no tub-had it taken out and put a walk in shower last year) it's gonna be a bitch to clean up but i'm just glad it didn't happen when i was taking a shower!!
the door seemed to just explode in the middle of the night.
i called the manufacturer and they are sending a whole replacement set and advised me to take out the in tact door in case that one breaks too. it is still making noises in there-the glass/door.
i was freaked out and couldn't sleep after that except drifting in and out thinking about what to do.
i have never experienced something so strange. i don;t know if the glass was defective or the installation was a factor.
i'm glad i am getting replacements at no charge that was an unexpected surprise.
it's been warm here -- @ 3:30 am it was not freezing not a big temp drop from the day.
