[quote:J-Rico:MV8xMjkwMTUwXzIxMDk5Njc2X0NFRjc2RDgz] [quote:junipero] Tempered glass is designed to shatter on impact. Sometimes very small flaws in the pane can cause the whole thing to go. It was probably a tiny crack that widened every time you used the door... that is probably what happened and could have been the popping sounds. [/quote] Yep, that's why I asked if it was tempered and how wide. Most likely what happened. It could have been a combination of that and a colder than usual temperature that could have done it in finally. Don't know where you live, so I'm just guessing. [/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.
