Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the shower door. heavy and thick unlike the other cheapo doors. Installed easily and very durable. One door is the slider, while the other one is static to help distribute the wight that the bars need to hold. Great design estheticaly and from engineering prespective!
This door is amazing!! It's beautiful and built likens rock. I definitely recommend a professional installer. I hired our local glass company and it took them 2-3 hours. Believe me when I tell you that this door is with every penny. Classic case of "you get what you pay for."
The review that says this item cannot be used on acrylic tubs is wrong. The shower doors weigh 130 pounds. The average tub holds 55 gallons of water, that's almost 500 pounds. Sit in your tub wall and it's another 100-250 pounds. A quality acrylic tub can handle this no problem. Maybe the reviewer meant fiberglass tub, but even a good quality fiberglass tub would probably handle this door set. (but then who's going to put a $1000 door on a $100 tub?) But if you have an acrylic tub, don't exclude this item due to the weight. It's a non issue.
I never received the doors. Overstock cancelled my order after my contractor read the Vigo specs online. The specs state under "Important" that these shower doors should not be used with an acrylic tub. The weigh of door (130lbs) are excessive for acrylic tubs to handle. This information is not mentioned in Overstock description. I sure wish we could have used them they look beautiful.
