Showers Online software
Showers Online, the exclusive frameless shower glass size program from C.R. Laurence, Los Angeles, provides glass professionals with an efficient method for calculating final glass sizes for specific projects. Users can design almost any custom enclosure, produce more quotes, train more employees to handle shower customers, make professional presentations, and get accurate glass sizes immediately.
First you select the style you want from the extensive template menu (or generate a custom configuration), then select the configuration you want. Add the desired dimensions or job site measurements. Then select the hardware that will be used for the project. Upon completion of the data entry, select the “Print” icon to generate complete glass sizes and templates. The printout displays detailed information including hinge and handle locations, miters, and much more.
Showers Online also has several built-in safety features. If an unsafe application is generated, the user will not be allowed to save the shower design. If a door is too wide or heavy, a prompt appears advising another hinge is needed. It also provides the advisable width for a specific door height.
All shower plans are saved in the database, and glass and hardware pricing is provided. You can view and print out drawings and produce a customized installation page that includes your company’s information and logo.
The 3D color view allows you (and your customers) to view the enclosure from any angle. Fabricators who use CNC technology for fabricating glass will appreciate the fact that the program produces and exports .DFX file types in three different configurations: finished size of glass, including cut-outs; block size of glass without cut-outs (prior to polishing); and block sizes with cut-outs. You can combine a number of standard items used on a regular basis, and label them as a package. Showers Online populates a hardware list with all the fittings in that package. This can be accessed any time to speed up ordering.
