Its probably designed not to rip from its hooks when the shower occupant grabs
on it as they are thrown around by air turbulence, as well as to be transparent
enough to transmit the ambient light of the restroom, but not so transparent as
to expose the occupant to the unwitting person entering the restroom. Now, if
you wanted it to be bullet proof, we can do that too, but the cost goes up to a
couple grand.
