Safety Glass

Was fitting my new shower enclosure when the inevitable happened: one of the panes slipped a couple of cm and the edge hit the shower tray - and the whole thing exploded into a million pieces...........
I obviously won't be able to anything until Monday, but out of curiosity how do people go about replacing things like that. Will I have to get back to the Shower manufacturer (Coram) for a new pane , or can I order it from my local glazier ? I know it can't be cut, so I guess it will have to be specially ordered. And how much is the stuff anyway (I need 4mm 175x60cm): not cheap probably. All the trim and frame is okay (I've cleaned it out of the glue and glass), so if I do get back to Coram will I be able to just get the pane, or will they try to sell me the pane with framework ?

Any glazier will be able to supply toughened glass. You tell them the size and they cut it and get it toughened. Even comes with a kitemark. I think I paid about 30 on top of the glass to have 2 patio doors done.

Any _good_ glazier. It's getting increasingly hard to find one, out of that big listing in Yellow Pages. Don't be surprised if the first few calls don't deliver.

There's depressing. I went into the glass counter of my local Gibbs & Dandy to talk about shower cubicles (*) which is where I found out about all this.
(* I want to build an entirely glass cubicle in my main bathroom, so I wanted to know about cutting and toughening glass. Provide a drawing and they'll get it all done for you. Impressive.)
