Clips or U-Channel?
Stationary panels for frameless shower enclosures have to be held in place by either u-channel or clips. The U-channel would be everywhere the glass meets the tile. Normally bottoms and walls. Using the u-channel is less expensive than clips. reason being that with clips the glass has to have polished edges (charged per inch). Everywhere there’s a clip there is a finger notch (charge per notch) and the clips themselves. So in a typical shower enclosure the price is about $200-$300 more. It’s our mutual opinion that the channel provides a cleaner look and saves the customer money.
With that being said we here at Creative would like to let you know that we will offer every cost saving alternative to best fit your budget all the while giving you the best look for your enclosure.
