Safety tips for glass doors

Posted: Updated:
(WOIO) -

Ensure moving panels are securely attached to the door system.  If concerned, consult your instructions or contact the manufacturer.

Periodically check the shower door hardware to ensure fasteners remain secure. Tighten them if needed.

Ensure moving glass panel is not directly contacting the wall or metal during operation. That means checking the panel alignment and making sure the bumpers and seals are in good condition.

Inspect glass regularly for any chips or cracks, paying special attention to glass edges, notches, and around holes in the glass for hardware.  If there is any evidence of a crack, replace the glass panel immediately.

Do not use the shower door towel bars as a safety grab bar or as a lift assist when getting in and out of the bath, or lowering and lifting off a toilet.
