Safety Glass on Shower Doors not really Safe

The glass in your shower is “safety glass” which means that it’s designed to shatter into little pieces. The problem is that those little pieces don’t separate fast enough or stay stuck together causing large shards of glass that can seriously injure whoever is in the vicinity.

Injuries from shattered shower doors may sound like an anomaly but the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that they are 300 injuries a year treated in hospitals that are caused by this little reported issue.

To find out how this happens and what you can do to protect yourself in your home, check out the CBS news report:
