Butt glazing simply means to join two pieces of glass by butting them together. In the case of frameless shower doors, the intent is to perform this task without the use of any mechanical fasteners in places other than the top and the bottom. And to perform it in a fashion that will stay together and not leak.

With our standard product offerings, this application occurs when a return panel is used. Each of these products has a 90° corner area where two pieces of glass join together. The intention here is to complete this corner in a fashion that resembles a fish tank "aquarium", often referred to an "aquarium corner". It certainly gives your frameless shower a more sophisticated appearance than the traditional method of having a 90° metal corner post create this joint.
