fixed glass panel--is a 3/8' U-channel deep enough
I have just finished building my shower. One side has a knee wall that is 16" inches wide. I need a fixed panel of glass to sit on top of the knee wall and go to the ceiling. The panel will be 16" wide x 54" high. The glass store wants to use a 3/4" deep U-channel for the bottom and side but I hate the look of so much metal. I know that 3/8" regular U-channels are available. Does anyone know if there is a stability risk with the regular depth channel? Do I really need the deep one?
