Bright Glass goal is to custom make your glass product within 7 - 10 business days from the time of the final measurements. Bright Glass is not liable for any delays due to 3rd party carriers, lost shipments, acts of GOD, weather, machinery down time, loss of internet connection, out of stock glass or hardware, or any other unforeseen event out of the control of Bright Glass. Bright Glass will do its best to notify the purchaser informing them of any delays and will give the purchaser an exact or approximate delivery time.
Glass is a man made product. Every piece of glass contains various types of flaws or blemishes, which could be visible to the naked eye. Even the best glass available in the market may contain minor defects. The federal government mandates that no defects should be visible in the glass when it is viewed vertically or horizontally from a distance of 11 feet away under normal lighting conditions. All of our glass meets or exceeds these standards set forth by the federal government. The remaking of any glass due to normal blemishes will be based solely at the discretion of Bright Glass and based on using industry standard tolerance levels. Warping of glass is common and may occur during the tempering process. This will remain within accepted tempering association’s guidelines. Specifications are only available upon request from the purchaser.
The glass manufacturing industry and Bright Glass have an accepted cutting tolerance level so all glass sizes can vary plus (+) or minus (-) up to 1/8". If your glass is within these tolerance levels Bright Glass will not be responsible for any remakes of new glass whatsoever. Vertical gaps on doors may vary from 1/16" to 3/8" depending on the configuration. All pivot or wall mounted doors will typically have a 3/8” to 1⁄2” gap on top and bottom. Vinyl seals are available free of charge only at time of purchase or installation. After time the vinyl seals may discolor or deteriorate. These seals are considered a Wear and Tear Item and will not be replaced by Bright Glass unless paid for by the purchaser.
All glass has a greenish hue or tint due to the iron content in the glass. This greenish hue can vary due to the size and thickness of the glass. Low iron glass has a lesser greenish hue and can also vary due to the size and thickness of the glass. All of our tempered glass is inspected and certified to ensure the best quality tempered glass in the industry.
Installations and Repairs
The Bright Glass objective is to design and install your unit with a “tight as possible” installation. Due to circumstances out of our control, glass cannot conform to bellies, bows and uneven tile or poor workmanship performed by tile contractors. Bright Glass will not be responsible for any structural integrity of the wall or any other mounting surface. Bright Glass will not assume any responsibility for cracked surface material due to installation or removal of existing products. All units require hole drilling in tile, marble, granite and in some cases notching of bull nose or decorative border tiles. Also on occasion we need to drill into cast iron or fiberglass tubs to safely secure the unit. With glass tiles Bright Glass may recommend drilling through grout lines only to secure enclosure. Glass tiles as well as porcelain and ceramic will on occasion crack while drilling. Bright Glass will not be held responsible to repair or replace any tiles that break due to normal drilling. Any tile or surface damage that may result in the removal of an existing unit or upon an installation of a new unit is to be corrected by the purchaser at his/her expense.
Bright Glass will assume no liability due to unforeseen conditions such as drilling into pipes that are hidden behind walls where drilling is necessary. Bright Glass requests that the contractor or homeowner notifies Bright Glass prior to drilling if a pipe is in the area where a hole is needed. Bright Glass will redesign and work around a pipe if notified prior to design and installation.
Any special costs for fabrication and transporting glass where we do not have accessibility to, stairs or an elevator will be at the purchaser's expense. (Example: Lift).
All drawings done by Bright Glass are not to scale and may not be 100% accurate.
All defects in the glass and hardware such as scratches, chips, etc., must be acknowledged within 12 hours of installation and purchaser must email all photos of said defects to Bright Glass. Small hair like scratches are common, as well as “dot like” spots embedded within the glass. You, the purchaser, acknowledge that these flaws may be visible at any time, especially when there is a window inside the shower or room.
All of our products are custom made in our factory specifically for your opening(s) specifications and yours only. Once you sign off on the design and sizes, no alterations can be made since the sizes get sent directly to our factory to be custom made, providing you with our commitment of the quickest turnaround time in the industry.
Shower bases/tubs with an incorrect pitch can cause water damage. Incorrect pitched sills may drain water onto the outside floor. A threshold will be installed by Bright Glass under any door where the curb is pitched wrong or off level towards the outside of the enclosure. If the purchaser refuses this threshold upon the initial installation, Bright Glass will charge a service fee at a minimum of $125.00 to go back and install one after the initial installation has occurred. Opening door outward can cause water to drain down on the bathroom floor. Correctly built stalls following quality construction will eliminate most of the above problems. Although the doors and enclosures are manufactured to fit given sizes, there may be steam or water leakage, especially in a direct spray situation. The purchaser is to take into consideration the positioning and aim of the showerhead(s), water pressure, body sprays and any detachable shower sprayers. Please keep in mind a frameless shower is made to deflect water, not retain it. All glass will be centered on the curb or tub, unless otherwise specified in writing by Bright Glass or purchaser. Glass hinged doors swing in and out unless layout of opening dictates otherwise.
Mitered glass doors mounted or close up to angled walls can sometimes only be opened one way depending on the layout of the opening. All handles, hooks and towel bars will be installed at our standard height unless otherwise instructed by the purchaser and put in writing on proposal or invoice. Towel bars and hooks are optional and will be at purchaser’s request and must appear on the signed proposal or invoice.
If Bright Glass must remove an existing glass product, Bright Glass will not be held liable for any damage to walls, tiles, furniture or any other items in the bathroom while removing the product. Bright Glass will attempt to cover existing holes that were hidden behind the old product. Due to conditions & configurations, as well as thickness differences from the larger framed metal enclosures to the thinner frameless glass enclosures, Bright Glass will not be responsible or be expected to cover or fill these holes that were originally drilled to support the old unit. After removing existing products you may see discoloration or stains on tile, cultured marble, marble, granite, etc. which are common. Bright Glass will not be responsible to remove any such stains after removal. Bright Glass will dispose of the old product at the purchaser request at the time of removal.
Warranties and Maintenance
All warranty claims are subject to inspection by Bright Glass.
If any hardware fails or discolors within one year of the initial installation or receipt of goods, it will be replaced at no charge to the purchaser. If any hardware fails or discolored after a period of one year of the initial installation, the purchaser will pay a small service charge depending on the length of time to repair and the location of the jobsite.
Hard coat finishes on hardware may vary from selections due to materials used. Hardware is made of brass and headers are made of steel and aluminum. Finishes may vary from time to time or have a different shade due to the use of different materials used per application. This is to be expected and not covered under warranty.
Never use an abrasive cleaner such as (Comet or similar) on our hardware. Many of the components are coated with clear lacquer that will be damaged if subjected to harsh, abrasive chemicals. Drying the hardware with a clean soft towel on a daily basis is the best way to maintain it. If mineral deposits form on the hardware, mix a couple of drops of liquid soap (such as Ivory or similar) into a cup of warm water. Clean the hardware using a soft non abrasive cloth, rinse thoroughly with clean warm water and dry.
Due to the inherent nature of brass, Bright Glass does not warranty any polished brass finishes. Hinges are greased at the factory for a quiet trouble free operation. If squeaking occurs after installation, we suggest using a small amount of 3 and 1 oil. Do not use any lubricating sprays such as (WD-40).
If any hardware or glass becomes loose or needs adjustment within one year of the installation by Bright Glass we will repair it at no charge to the purchaser. After one year the purchaser will agree to pay a service charge depending on the length of time to repair and the location of the jobsite.
Bright Glass warranties leaks on its installations around fixed glass panels only for a period of 90 days. If a leak occurs after a period of 90 days, the purchaser will be subject to a minimum service fee of $125.00.
Bright Glass is not responsible for any mold growing on silicone caulk or tile. Mold can occur from unclean areas or stagnant water.
Stainless Steel Disclaimer
Stainless steel is a durable chromium and nickel-based alloy that offers superior corrosion resistance. However, stainless steel is not stain or rust proof. Environmental conditions, such as proximity to large bodies of water, can be contributing factors to corrosion. Stainless steel can also discolor, rust, or corrode if it’s in regular contact with chloride salts, sulfides, or rusting metals such as iron. Lastly, metal cutting equipment including chop saws can leave small metal deposits on stainless steel that may lead to rusting if not properly removed.
Bright Glass does not guarantee that brushed or polished stainless steel hardware will remain free of rust, stains, or corrosion for the lifetime of the product. As a preventative measure, we recommend proper periodic care of stainless steel hardware to help maintain its factory finish for years to come.
