VIGO Launches the First Ever Aerodynamic Glass Sliding Shower Door

Shower collection revolutionizes shower experiences with aerodynamic wheels that improve glass sliding efficiency for all

VIGO, a leading innovator in the home improvement industry, releases its newest frameless sliding shower design. The Elan Cass Aerodynamic Frameless Shower Door is intuitively designed to provide homeowners with a quieter shower experience as the first shower door designed with aerodynamic top rollers. Following VIGO’s best-selling shower door model, The Elan, it is designed with unique top rail rollers and frameless glass doors. Taking advantage of air technology, The Elan Cass Aerodynamic reimagines the shower door with aerodynamic wheels to provide customers with a quieter opening and closing that operates with the same unmatched precision as luxury sports cars.

Aerodynamic Rollers

Unlike traditional sliding glass shower doors, The Elan Cass Aerodynamic utilizes wind power to ensure smooth sliding glass doors. Always at the forefront of innovative home design, VIGO reinvents the wheel with intuitively engineered top rail sliding rollers. VIGO brings the same seamlessness and ingenuity of luxury automobiles with top rollers that deliver the same aerodynamic performance of the luxury automotive industry, allowing users to experience carefree walk-in shower entry. The aerodynamic wheels optimize airflow, reduce dragging and ensure efficiency to deliver smoother opening and closing glass sliding doors. With this advanced technology, users can open and close shower doors without static, friction, or noise.

“When you think about the wheels of a car, you think about how seamlessly they move and glide. The idea for the new shower rollers was inspired by the aerodynamics of isolated rotating wheels that you see in the luxury automotive industry,” said VIGO’s CEO and founder, Lenny Valdberg. “Our Creative Director, Anna Blinova worked with our design team to bring this advanced technology and efficiency to home improvement with the Elan Cass Aerodynamic.”

Design and Performance

Designed in New York City, The Elan Cass Aerodynamic takes inspiration from the sleek industrial design of the city’s architecture and modern art with unique rollers that mirror the look of pipes. Diamond knurling details add texture and visual interest to its premium finish. Constructed with certified tempered glass, each sliding shower door in the collection provides a lifetime of structural security and durability so that users can feel safe. The frameless design is modern yet timeless and versatile, with hardware finishes available in matte brushed gold, matte black, chrome, and stainless steel.
