Who makes custom glass sliding shower doors?

I live in the Northwest in Oregon. And I'm looking for a 3/8" clear glass shower door for my new tile shower. Nothing at the Homedepot/Lowes is wide enough and I want the thicker glass.

So far All I've found is Agalite through George Morlan plumbing. And it's coming in around 850 bucks.

Here is what I want:
3/8" sliding shower door with clear glass (two frame-less glass sliding panels) 64"Wide x 74"Tall Brushed Nickel finish (front panel on the left when looking into the shower) Includes basic towel rack with same finish

Does anyone know of other companies that make these sliders?

Whats a good price?

I'd really like to do the install myself.

Try vigoindustries.com I saw these online the other day and I must say some of their frameless systems have some awesome looking roller systems.

Thanks for the advice but neither of these links turned up much for me under 1000 dollars... I've found two quotes using Agalite and they are coming in around 840 to 880..

Am I pretty much looking at 800 bucks or more?

If you are looking for a frameless shower door you are looking at at least $1,000.00. If you are looking for a framed shower door they can be had for between $600-$800. Contact a local glass and mirror company.

So what I'm hearing is that my Agalite 3/8" frameless shower door that I got quotes of 840 dollars is a really good deal....

Under $1,000 is a good price but with a frameless shower door there are a few caveats. The plumb and level of the wall and curbs becomes an issue as a frameless system need a very square opening. I'm not sure how they work, if there is a local installer or not but I would feel better if someone came to my home and checked things out and did the measurements as well as the installation.
