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.


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.



central texas..it has been warm actually. could taking hot steamy showers affect/accelerate anything? i know that sounds simple but i wonder.
 Quoting: junipero



Could be.

I once was on the bad end of a science experiment like that. Made some lasagna, emptied it out of the pyrex glass cooking "pan" that I had and immediately placed it in the sink and for some reason decided to turn on the cold water.

It exploded in my sink.

I bet it is Chinese. They make all the glass cooking ware pretty much now and it too shatters. Anchor Hocking and Pyrex and the reason is they use cheaper materials than original combinations which are producing flawed finished product.

You know - maybe this is it:

Once I had a bookbag nearly fly off a dresser with no one near it, shortly after I witnessed a clothes hanger do the same thing. I started to get freaked out about ghosts, which is not me at all.

Then I saw the huge natural gas drill operating on the other side of the hill.

Are they drilling down there?

Re: Freaky! My Glass Shower door Shattered in the middle of the night
thanks salt water taffy :)

no drilling or construction this is a pretty old neighborhood

we are in a drought though this makes me think i might need to water around the foundation of the house though.

but the popping sounds happened when not in a drought so i know that had nothing to do with it.

i just took out the other door that thing was heavy!

i know i should have waited for my husband to take it out but ..

Glad you're okay OP, but if I was in your situation I would be concerned about the same thing happening with the replacement door. I'd never be able to relax in that shower!

So maybe the company can replace it with some kind of Plexiglas door or something that won't shatter?

Re: Freaky! My Glass Shower door Shattered in the middle of the night
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.

anyway trippy

Tempered or "safety" glass just like your car windows. The stuff is made to be strong and hard to break but when it does it explodes into a thousand small pieces. I was sitting watching TV one night and had the sliding glass door just exploded for no reason.

True dat. I came home one day to wall to wall water, fish laying all over, a bird cage on the floor, the bird sitting on top of the bird cage, and a cat who came in and gave me a look like 'How'd that happen!?'.

The story: Cat jumps up on bird cage, bird cage falls into tank, bird, fish and water find floor, cat runs off and hides.

Re: Freaky! My Glass Shower door Shattered in the middle of the night
It could be structural. Since it's a new shower installation it might be leaking and this leak over time could cause the structure to drop on one side. This could cause stress across the glass till it reaches a breaking point. You might want to check underneath the house for a problem. This is just a guess obviously....

Re: Freaky! My Glass Shower door Shattered in the middle of the night
Absolutely same thing happen to my bathroom door too!! may be it happened because of the weather. It is getting warm these days as the temperature is going higher. And it gets expansion. Just my thinking... but it is totally weird.. that it happen to us as well!!

Re: Freaky! My Glass Shower door Shattered in the middle of the night
Who ever hung the door most likely didn't square it up properly.

If it has a frame, then the frame may have gotten bent a little during installation. Worst case, if it was 'drill your own hinge holes' the person who put the hinges on put a tad bit of stress on the glass.

Minor changes in temperature would cause the metal frame to expand/contract at a different rate to the glass. As it happens last night the glass and metal just met that critical pressure point (most likely on the edge of the glass since its tempered) that caused the glass to break.

Remove the rest of shower door and its frame today. Then listen in on the room and see (hear) if there is still creaking and popping. If so, then there is something wrong with the shower install itself which will lead to the high probability that your new shower door will explode for you.

If there is still popping and creaking while the door is off, then either the wall(s) the door frame is attached too were made from improperly kiln dried wood, or you have a moisture problem in the wall leading to moisture build up causing the studs to expand.

If you have a single piece shower insert, and it was nailed in to tight (actually should use nails with rubber gaskets) then the whole thing may be fighting with the walls.

Re: Freaky! My Glass Shower door Shattered in the middle of the night
The house has probably slowly settled and the frame was no longer square. When the frame started putting pressure on the glass, it shattered. The settling is why you've been hearing the popping noises - some probably came from the glass and some from the framing in the house as well.
