Here's Some Good News

Guardian® Industries has developed a permanent coating called Showerguard™  that seals the porous surface of glass.

Ask your shower door dealer how to protect your glass ...forever







Another permanent glass sealant is called Clarvista™

All Clarvista glass is produced with a coating fused on the glass to provide a lifetime warrantied shield against the harsh shower environment.


It's available for regular Clear glass and water-clear Low Iron (starphire) glass for years of protection.

Spray-on Glass Sealants

Spray-on products are a great option and save you a few bucks. These products carry a 3-5 year warranty and need to be reapplied.

But don't be fooled - even with coatings the glass needs to be squeegee'd after showering. 


Also use a microfiber cloth so your glass will be healthy, sparkle and shine.

Just perform regular maintenance using an ammonia-free glass cleaner to avoid "the cloud" on your shower glass. 

BOTTOM LINE: Glass sealants for shower doors prevents the crud from etching the surface permanently - and saves you cleaning time.

Caution: Mildly abrasive water spot removers  can rub off the spray-coating so be sure to test a small inconspicuous area first and follow the manufacturers instructions.

Another option for making water bead up on shower glass is to use the product called Rain-X®.

NOTE: Apply to glass only and not the floor or adjacent surfaces as they become slippery.
