Q: How easy-or difficult- are Gridscape™ doors to clean? 

A: As with any shower door, regular upkeep makes cleaning fast and simple. Please refer to our Care and Cleaning guide for more information.

 

Q: How big is the handle? 

A: The standard handle is an 8″ through-the-glass ladder pull, measured from the center of the hole to the center of the other hole. However, the towel bars on our bypass doors vary depending on the width of the panels. The handles are not attached to the metal, but instead centered on a panel of glass.

A: There is typically only a 1/8″ adjustment outward. We recommend measuring with a laser level for better accuracy.

A: Pricing is calculated per square foot and any chosen add-ons. Please refer to our Where To Buy page to locate a dealer near you for a quote.

 

Q: What kind of metal is used in the door? 

A: Gridscape™ doors are made of rust-proof anodized aluminum.

 

Q: If I add Coastal Clarity®, how long does it last?
A: 
Coastal Clarity®, a proprietary sealant that prevents hard water spots and reduces time spent cleaning glass, typically lasts about a year. Results will vary upon water conditions, usage, and cleaning chemicals used.

 

Q: What if I break a panel? 

A: Unfortunately, broken panels cannot be replaced.

 

Q: Is the tempered glass logo on every piece of glass or just some? 

A: Per regulations, the logo is required to be on each pane of tempered glass.

 

Q: Are the grids on both sides of the glass? 

A: Our Full Divided-Light doors are glass on the inside with metal grids on the outside. Our True Divided-Light doors are multiple panes of glass separated by mullions (grids) on both the interior and exterior. Each square of glass on a True Divided-Light door is a separate piece of glass glazed into channel for an authentic divided look.
