    I have a less than two year old Sterling shower door that had no crack and exploded; has anyone else had this problem. The door was the bronze framless type door. I would appreciate any information you could give me.

    Shower doors are of course tempered glass, which means they will explode if nicked just right, especially at an edge, or where the rollers attach, or where the towel bar screw holes are.

    I have a Keystone frameless that is about 15 years old. No worries, Mate!

    I've had it happen to me. Tempered glass will shatter into a million pieces when tweaked.
