    Tempered Shower Glass Suddenly Explodes

    So I was abruptly woke at 2:00 am this morning to a loud pow! Found that the tempered glass in my walk in shower shattered. WTH! Spent allot of money for custom cut glass and this happens? It has been about 1 1/2yrs since it was installed. I would like to think this should be replaced by the installer free of cost. Am I asking too much? I read on the web this happens actually quite frequently. Never heard of it before but I guess

    No signs of and bullet holes, no sudden swing in inside or outside temp. Anyone else heard of this or delt with the this?

    Yes, I've heard of it, usually when stress is induced during installation (twisting? sharp screw tip against the panel?) -- not after more than a year, though! It's probably too late to blame anything on the installer. Could your house be settling?

    I actually had to look at the date of this thread. I could have sworn that someone else here had the same thing happen to them a year or so ago.

    That's just so weird that it would randomly do that.

    I'll almost guarantee you that when you call the installer, they are going to tell you that your house shifted due to a freeze/thaw, high winds.. something.

    If the house moves, the glass gets stressed because it can't flex and move with the house. If the stress level gets high enough, it shatters. That's one of the reasons there are usually gaps around the perimeter of glass when they install it. Then the glass can move within the gaps without building up stress.

    It can't hurt to call them. Maybe they'll be good about it and just replace it for you since it hasn't been all that long.

    It has silicone on three sides! All the room it needs to shift around. It was a shivering 45 degrees last night. Just don't get it. I think it has more to do with the process of how tempered glass is made.

    Weird things happen. This caught my attention because early this morning we were awakened by a loud bang. I grabbed pistol and flashlight, everything inside and outside seemed fine.
    This morning a large clock was missing off the wall. How it came up and over the screw into a walk stud, fell 7 feet onto a tiled concrete floor without breaking is a mystery.

    Had that happen one night too, while we were sleeping and heard glass break. Like you, grabbed my 19 went into room clearing mode, found a large picture frame on the tile floor by the basement entrance. Hook still on the wall and hanger still on the back of the picture frame, both in tact.
