Got a note from my bath distributors the other day to tell me about some new options for pre-made shower surronds, easily available to me through distribution. (Other people can pay retail off the rack!) But we know HB Building + Design is all about getting you the most beautiful results saving you the most money.
Lauren said as she knew I worked on Aging in Place, I should make their brochure available to you. I will, in our next newsletter! In the meantime, I’ll just say that they are working on the warmth of the bather issue that I contend is not the best for anyone to have to sit in cooling air, wet, while the tub empties! They DO have amazing barrier free design shower bases, beautiful glass doors. Following are some examples of their new hardware design samples.
Prior to the last few years, if you desired a premium-looking shower enclosure, you would have to go to a “custom glass house” for the design, fabrication installation of your enclosure. Very upscale, also very pricey. MTI offers a great alternative with its line of enclosures, making it easy for you to have the beauty fit of custom-made enclosures, without the custom price.
Shower enclosures from MTI are the perfect complement to MTI’s fine line of high-quality showerbases tubs.

The Nordic Series also offers tub enclosures for tub / shower combination applications, such as the Tub Shield shown to the left.
The second series of frameless shower enclosures from MTI is the Teutonic Series, which suggests motion even while stationary. Rugged, industrial-looking rollers glide along a rock-solid stainless steel track, allowing the 12mm (1/2″) -thick, 200-pound sheet of tempered safety glass to effortlessly slide.
