BEMA Announces 2008
Design Awards Winners

The Bath Enclosure Manufacturers Association (BEMA) has announced the winners of its 12th Annual Design Awards Competition. Travis Humphreys, with A&T Glass & Window Corp. in Palm City, Fla., and Bruce Downs of CB Showers Inc. of San Carlos, Calif., received the honors this year.

Humphreys won in the glass under 3⁄8-inch category.

“This 5⁄16 clear glass shower enclosure was custom cut ‘out of square’ to eliminate the need for U channel,” Humphreys says of his winning project. “We chose to use a header to avoid using multiple clips, thus achieving the ‘clean look’ the homeowner desired. The seamless design was enhanced with CRL satin nickel hardware and water clear silicone.”

In the glass 3⁄8-inch and over category, Downs is a repeat winner.

“The main requirement was the ability to see the beautiful stonework, and to have something unique and different. We chose German antique glass [a low-iron antique glass] to accomplish this. ” ❙❙➤ www.bathenclosures.org
