FAQ

How do I know if I need a left or a right Newel Grab Bar?

While facing toward the stairs or a passageway where you want to install the grab bar, you will need a left Newel Grab Bar to mount to the left newel post or corner, and a right Newel Grab Bar to mount to the right newel post or corner.

How many holes for hooks are in a curtain?

Each curtain has 10 holes for hooks. The holes are reinforced with grommets. The hole diameter is 1/4".

What is the hole size in the curtains?

All holes are reinforced with a grommet, and the diameter of the grommet hole is ¼"

How long is the bracing bar that comes with a screen?

Every glass screen is supplied with a 55" long bar, which can be cut to the length needed for an installation. This bar should be used to secure the end post to a nearby wall to make the screen rigid.

Separate tie bars are available (in 3 lengths) to span from one glass screen to another in situations where two screens are installed.

Can I get a screen with trim in other colors?

Sorry, these screens are only available with the polished aluminum trim.

What is the warranty on a glass screen?

The manufacturer's limited warranty for defects is extended to the original "end-user" purchaser. When installed in a commercial setting, the warranty period is for 5 years from the original date of purchase. When installed in a residential setting, the warranty period is for 10 years from the original date of purchase. Please see the AKW warranty for details.

Can I cut a bracing rod or tie rod?

Yes, the glass screen rods are made of aluminum and are easy to cut with a hacksaw.

How do I install glass screens without penetrating through the waterproofing?

If you absolutely do not want to penetrate the waterproofing, then consider securing a strip of solid surface material like Corian or Avonite (there are many brands) to the finished floor with adhesive, then mount the glass screen hardware to it.

There really isn't a problem, however, with mounting glass screens directly to the floor. After drilling pilot holes, squeeze silicone sealant into the holes before driving the fasteners. Also, cover the fasteners with silicone once they're driven. The silicone will fill any gaps around the screws to seal the floor and keep water where is should be, draining from the shower. Take the time to silicone any floor or wall penetrations to prevent leaks--for example, with grab bar fasteners.

We recommend installing glass screens just outside the shower base so that you aren't drilling through the base itself. Make sure the fasteners will go through the subfloor and into blocking or joists below.

What is the trim made of?

The trim is made of aluminum and it's polished to a high gloss.

What kind of glass is used?

All glass screens are made of tempered safety glass that is 6mm thick (a hair under ¼").
