Simple Beauty

Some homeowners like to see things clearly, leading the way to glass shower enclosures. C.R. Laurence is helping this trend by offering a large line of accessories for frameless glass showers.

In the August issue of Qualified Remodeler, we introduced you to C.R. Laurence’s, also known as CRL, Hydroslide Frameless Sliding Shower Door Kit. This Hydroslide Frameless Sliding Shower Door Kit is designed for full-standing showers or to be installed above bathtubs. These kits can accommodate shower designs with fixed glass panels on either end or both sides at 90 and 180 degrees, and can be used for floor-to-near-ceiling glass panels with a sliding door. CRL Hydroslide Kits are available in either 60- or 84-in. widths.

CRL began over 44 years ago, when it started as a fledgling distributor of glazier’s hardware and industrial supplies, operating out of a 5,000-sq.-ft. facility in Los Angeles, Calif. Very quickly CRL began its aggressive expansion throughout North America by first establishing branches in Dallas, Illinois, Northern California, Georgia and New Jersey and now holds 21 branches in North America, Europe and Australia.

Today CRL has a hand in glass fabrication, construction, architecture and automotive restyling. CRL offers a complete line of quality glass and mirror hardware, including its newest line of hardware for display cabinets and showcases. Whatever the mirror industry needs to mount, hang, seal or protect mirrors, is found at CRL.

In the general tool line, glaziers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers and other general handymen will find a wide selection of tools and equipment in CRL catalogs and on-line. This line of tools is constantly growing as new products are developed.

CRL carries all sorts of hardware and support for its Frameless Showers. It has materials for in-line, right angle, neo angle and custom angling showers in several finishes. To help out the remodeler, they also have a Frameless Shower Enclosure Design & Estimating Program to get started and come up with an appropriate quote for the consumer.

With all that CRL has to offer in Frameless Shower Door Hardware and Supplies, it’s hard to imagine they wouldn’t have what a remodeler is looking for.
