Q: Can Coastal Industries towel bars and handles support a bather? A: Towel bars and handles used in our showers are not intended to be used as safety devices and should never be used to pull oneself up or as a support in any way. These handles are designed strictly to open and close your shower door and to hang a towel or wash cloth.

Q: What can I use to clean the glass in my Coastal Industries shower door? A: Never use an abrasive or acid-based cleaner or a formulation such as “Clean Shower.” To maximize the life of your Coastal Industries door, you should squeegee the inside panels and doors after each use. Visit us on to see our recommended cleaning products for the long-term care of your shower door.

Q: When I see the term “lead times,” does that indicate when the Coastal Industries product will arrive or when it will be shipped? A: Lead time is the time from when we receive your order until the time it is shipped. Actual shipment travel time varies with each carrier and also depends on the type of delivery you specify, such as next-day air, two-day air, or regular ground.

Q: What is the definition of a Centerline measurement? A: Usually, this refers to dimensions measured in the center of the base of the unit. This arbitrary line, and its intersecting points in the case of a unit with end panels, is what is required for the correct placement of the shower enclosure. The center of the aluminum frame is placed, or centered, on this line.

Q: How often does Coastal Industries deliver? A: Coastal Industries is committed to getting your shipment to you as quickly as possible. Our shipping fleet reaches every state in the Union and Canada, except for Alaska and Hawaii. Our fleet is on the road each week and the delivery time to you depends on where you are located.
