Q: I have seen what looks like a painted pattern on glass. What it is it and how is it applied to the glass?
A: The product is known as ceramic frit and made of crushed glass and a color pigment. The design is silkscreened on to the glass and is melted into the surface of the glass during the tempering process, literally making the pattern part of the glass. Because of this, ceramic frit will never chip of flake.
Q: Do Holcam doors fit standard fibreglass stalls?
A: Yes, Holcam doors and enclosures will fit all current manufacturers' stalls.
Q: Will I need to make any cuts when I install a door?
A: Yes, we leave some of the parts longer than needed in order to account for out of plumb conditions.
