First, Overstock's shipping was the best, the door arrived by Fedex in 3 days! Most vendors ship an item like this via Freight that takes 2-3 weeks and shipping was free. I have wanted this door since I saw it on an HGTV product expo. Back then it retailed for well over a $1,000. Installation of the door is a project for a moderate do-it-yourselfer and takes about 2 hours unless you have ceramic tile like me, which took about an hour or better and 3 tile bits, just to drill 5 holes! I have had no stability issues with the door as one other user mentioned. Just make sure you get a solid wall connection with the included support bar. The door itself is certainly beautiful, especially at this price point, but it does have some drawbacks, most of them minor. 1) The fixed glass panel bottom support bracket which screws to the tub lip and fits inside a notch in the glass panel was too big for the glass notch, not allowing the glass panel to sit flush. I had to dremel off a millimeter of the aluminum bracket. 2) The fixed glass panel sits on the tub lip without any bottom gasket and is to be caulked in and out per directions. This works fine, but a soft clear rubber gasket on the bottom glass edge would be much nicer. 3)The hinged door does not have any "stop" on the tub lip. So the door essentially free floats over the tub lip, again it works ok, but a plastic coated magnet stop on the edge of the door and screwed to the tub lip would make a nice product, that much more elegant. 4) The hinged door does not open a full 90 degrees, it is more like 70 degrees. not an issue in big baths, but it makes it tight if you don't have alot of open space near the endwall, where you will enter/exit the tub. 5) I agree with another review that the hinged door bottom gasket does not touch the tub lip, potentially allowing water out, unless you slide the gasket downward, away from it's intended mounting position.
Again, for me these are not deal breakers in a master bath situation. The door is kind of like buying a sports car. Beautiful to look at, does some things very well, But overall, I would buy an SUV (regular sliding glass door) if the entire family had to use it regularly.
Can't beat the price. Looks great, contractor said it was easy to install. Looks much better than a shower curtain! One concern was that it would not be wide enough to contain the shower water, no issues so far even with our frequent use by
I would recommend with a caveat: we bought two. They look great. They never leak, even when the water is hitting it almost directly. here's my caveat: nothing we (including contractor and plumber) did could get either to close fully. They always look slightly ajar. If you're fine with that, then this is your door. If not, well...
Who would call a shower door "elegant"? But yet, here it is. This is so sleek and gorgeous. I do wish the installation screws had cover caps inside the shower but oh well. The doors glide smoothly. The handles are a large size - everything about this is just nice. We've put Rain X on it so it will sheet water and not spot.
I purchased this door for a modern town home that has a beautiful tiled shower/tub. Hiding the design work with a shower curtain just wouldn't do it justice. I had a professional install it as the instructions are TERRIBLE. He also used his own anchors since some of the included parts aren't the best quality. It took him about 3.5 hours and it came out perfectly. Keep in mind that there is an arm/bracket that goes from the front piece of the door to the inside of the shower. This is for stability and absolutely needed. If you are tall or the tub is very narrow it could get in the way.
With this being a door that opens out towards the floor you will definitely have some water dripping onto the bathroom floor after a shower. This is unavoidable, unless you have a longer bathtub where you can get out of the tub without opening the door. We're talking about a few drops, so it's not really a not a huge deal if you have a bath mat.
Overall it's a sweet looking door, well made and highly recommended.
We have had this door hung for over a year, it has held up well and still looks great. My only complaint is the rubber seal at the bottom of the door that swings does not do the best job of preventing water from dripping out.
Very impressed with the quality of this product, glass doors much heavier and smoother sliding then another one I bought recently at Lowe's for roughly the same cost. Plus, thanks to delivery,I did not have to hump this one home. I had it professionally installed so I can't can't comment on that aspect.
