Jake P asks:
Shower in question is a tub. The shower head and tile wall on the the left side and a five foot bulkhead is on the right side. We would like to install glass on the top of the bulkhead and then run a shower curtain from the vertical metal support to the tile wall. Have you every seen anything like this? Is this feasible for a few hundred dollars?
I am not sure if a tension rod would apply too much pressure on the glass. A tension rod would have to run from the tile to the glass. Would this still work?

I use an expanding rod. You put it in place and then twist one end to expand it and basically wedge it into place. It works fine, doesn’t fall out or anything. No holes to drill, etc. The gym where I work out also uses this type of rod.
If the tension rod won’t work, there are other options.
One would be to use adhesive. You could try to find an epoxy that adheres to glass and tile. The glue that hold the rear view mirror to the windshield in your car might work.
Another method would be to drill the tile and glass and bolt the rod in place that way. It would take some care, but both the tile and glass can be drilled with carbide bits.
Another way would be to suspend the rod on hangers from the ceiling, independent of the walls. I don’t know if this would look acceptable in you bath.
