We want all of our customers to understand their options in protective coatings for their new glass shower doors or bathtub enclosure. Both of these products offer very different types of glass sealant; the first is a seal that is created during the manufacturing process, and the second consists of a coating that is applied after the glass has been manufactured. In a nutshell, the surface of ShowerGuard glass is permanently sealed during the fabrication of the glass, while EnduroShield EC5 is a sealant that is sprayed on after production of the glass.
Why choose a protective coating for my glass shower doors or tub enclosure?
Protective coating on your glass shower doors ensures the longevity and clarity of your new enclosure!!! ABC GLASS AND MIRROR offers its customers the option of having their glass protected from water spots and usage, making shower door maintenance a breeze! Glass is a porous material and in the absence of sealant the glass can become clouded and tough to keep clean. The porous nature of standard glass allows dirt, grime and soap scum to easily accumulate, not to mention the damage caused by hard water build up. Choosing a protective coating is critical to maintaining clear, bright glass for your shower enclosure. To protect your glass from the harsh reality of daily use, it is important to choose a sealant that will keep your shower doors looking new longer.
What makes ShowerGuard glass special?
ABC GLASS AND MIRROR offers ShowerGuard glass to keep your new shower enclosure looking clean and bright! ShowerGuard uses innovative technology to protect your glass from soap scum, corrosion, and hard water. The surface of the glass is sealed using ion beam technology to fill the pores. This keeps soap scum, etc. out of the pores and protects the glass from stains, which means minimal cleaning is required! The protective coating is placed on the glass during the manufacturing process securing the sealant’s protective properties to preserve your shower glass for years to come. What makes ShowerGuard different from all other sealants is that it actually becomes part of the glass itself. This means, unlike other glass protectors, ShowerGuard never needs to be reapplied. Keep your new shower doors looking nicer longer with ShowerGuard glass from the glass experts at ABC GLASS AND MIRROR!
How does EnduroShield EC5 work?
EnduroShield is a product that will help to keep your shower doors looking like new. Standard glass allows water spots including mineral and lime scale to build up on the glass due to its porous nature. When EnduroShield is applied to glass after manufacturing, it forms a coating that eliminates the ability of damaging materials to be absorbed into the glass. There are a couple of things that happen when you limit the growth of bacteria and hard water buildup.
- The shower glass is always easier to clean – harsh detergents are not needed to achieve sparkling glass.
- The glass stays cleaner longer – EnduroShield repels both water and oil.
EnduroShield EC5 is an environmentally safe compound that bonds to your shower glass to create a long-lasting protective layer. It is fully transparent and backed by a 1 year limited warranty.
How do I maintain the beauty of protected shower door glass?
Routine maintenance is a clear way of preserving the beauty of your new glass doors, but it doesn’t have to make you a slave to cleaning. The great thing about adding a protective coating to your new glass or choosing ShowerGuard glass is the ease of keeping your shower enclosure shiny and bright. Intense scrubbing with unsatisfactory results is replaced by easy and effective cleaning with a microfiber cloth and gentle cleanser. Depending on the quality of your tap water, choosing ShowerGuard glass or glass treated with EnduroShield can also eliminate the need for drying the glass after each shower. Detailed care information will be provided for the specific type of protected glass you choose, but the bottom line is this – not only do you get a perpetually new looking shower, but you don’t have to work to get it!
Why is protected tub enclosure and shower glass from ABC a smart choice?
Remember, having some sort of glass protection against hard water and grime is essential to keeping your shower doors or tub enclosure looking bright and new. ABC Glass offers two of the most innovative products on the market today: ShowerGuard and EnduroShield EC5. ShowerGuard is unique because it never has to be reapplied; the permanent seal is created during the construction of the glass. EnduroShield is one of the top spray-on sealants available and is somewhat more cost effective than other alternatives. And, although reapplication could hypothetically be required at some point, it creates a tough and durable barrier against dirt and water spots.
