Reining from hot and humid Houston, Clarity Glass Wholesalers specialize in tempered glass shower doors and enclosures. Quality fabrication and a growing business proves Clarity is a Houston-area industry leader.

Tempered Glass Shower Door Trends
Shower DoorFrom shatter to weather resistance, multi-functional tempered glass is the preferred glass for homeowners and businesses alike.
Industry Demand—Style and Functionality
Sezonov reports that oversized glass with minimal visible support elements is the latest trend in the modern bathroom. Reduction of metal framing and supports surrounding the glass demands more glass surface space, thus increasing production requirements for fabricators like Clarity.
In addition to looks, customers are now looking for glass capable of withstanding shower elements. Clarity uses Gaurdian’s ShowerGaurd product to coat glass for added durability.
ShowerGaurd seeps into glass pores during the float process, binding to the glass for the strongest finish. As glass continues to gain residential popularity, Sezonov expects increased demand for coated glass products.
Shower DoorFinding The Right Tempering Furnace For The Job
Facility expansion, increase in high quantity projects and demand for oversized glass pushed Clarity to upgrade their glass tempering furnace.
Sezonov worked with the HHH Tempering Resources technical team to add a 96×198 North Glass tempering furnace. The highly reliable furnace and U.S.-based technical expertise from HHH helps accommodate large orders with short lead times.
