Frameless Shower Enclosure Case Study Boulder, Colorado

Hillcrest Glass, flat glass and glazing contractor

Background:
Frameless shower enclosures, also called European or Heavy Glass enclosures, add an element of sophistication and drama to bathrooms. These shower enclosures utilize 3/8” or ½” thick glass, very little metal and are custom made to fit the given application. Frameless enclosures highlight tile and stone work, reflect natural light and add value to the home. The Boulder County home market has provided a strong demand for these shower enclosures for the past several years in both the new build and re-models market.

Custom Frameless Shower Enclosures for our glass company include:

  • Steam Showers
  • Hotel showers
  • Neo-Angle enclosures
  • Showers with up to 6 glass panels

The Projects:
Hillcrest Glass has been awarded the contracts for Custom Shower Enclosures for the following:

  • Niwot Inn – Niwot, Colorado
  • Arapahoe Lofts – Boulder, Colorado
  • TreeLine Homes – Boulder, Colorado
  • Boulder Country Club – Boulder, Colorado
  • Many home owners in Boulder County and the front range

Special Considerations:

  • Tile work must be done by an experienced tile person to be sure angles and studs are in the proper place
  • Very careful measurements must be taken as tolerances are very low
  • Access to job sites must be good, the glass is very heavy
  • We often provide design and material advice

Conclusion:
Hillcrest Glass has an experienced team of glaziers who specialize in frameless shower enclosures. Working with contractors and homeowners to develop a design that works well with the bathroom layout and other materials in the room is challenging but very rewarding. The Boulder County home market demands European style shower enclosures that function as art as well as a water barrier and Hillcrest Glass loves the opportunity to provide them.
