This is a wrong judgment. Glass for the manufacture of cabins has high strength and can withstand even a strong blow. A new trend in the world of plumbing is the soul in the Art Nouveau style, but they are becoming increasingly popular among owners of small bathrooms, due to unusual shapes, a variety of watering cans and simple maintenance of the structure.
