Our entire line of frameless shower doors and shower enclosures feature tempered glass certified by ANSI for safety. Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that is formed by rapidly heating the glass, then cooling it at an extremely low temperature, all while repeatedly blasting the glass with bursts of high-pressure air. This makes the glass much more durable that non-treated glass. In the extremely unlikely event that the glass should break, it is designed to break in such a way that it prevents injuries. The ANSI certification—ANSI Z97.1—ensures that the glass in our VIGO Shower Doors and Shower Enclosures can withstand a certain amount of weight and impact without any defect.

Our tempered glass has also been certified by the Consumer Product Safety Commission CFR 1201 Category II for safety and durability.


The structural rails of each shower are over-engineered for sturdiness. They are built to withstand more than the required weight for only the utmost safety.


All VIGO shower doors that feature a hinged or pivot door opening come standard with VIGO’s trademark MagnaLock™ locking system. This magnetically seals the door shut, making it less likely to fall open inadvertently. Not only does this feature prevent injuries, but can prevent water damage as well.




All VIGO Shower panels (With the exception of the Leo Retrofit Shower Massage Panel) feature a scald guard as a standard feature. This prevents the water temperature from being drastically changed, and can ultimately prevent scalds and serious burn injuries from hot water.


As well, each of our VIGO clear glass frameless shower enclosure models that feature a base have added safety features. All VIGO Shower Bases are textured for safety. This prevents the risk of slipping in the shower.




When you install a VIGO faucet in your kitchen or bathroom, you should feel confident in knowing that your new product is safe to use on a regular basis. All VIGO Faucets have been certified by three standards: NSF-61, NSF-372 and AB1953.


The NSF certifications -61 and -372 are standards that regulate the impurities that a faucet can introduce into the drinking water supply, concerning the metal and plastic components of a faucet respectively. The AB1953 standard (Which refers to the California Assembly Bill 1953, enacted in 2006) requires plumbing products to be considered “lead free” in order to be sold in the state of California. By this standard, plumbing must contain no more than 0.25% lead content. In fact, the AB1953 uses NSF-61 to help determine whether a product can be certified.
