Essence Sliding Shower Door

Essence Shower Door is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from beautiful but flawed This door is gorgeous and just what we wanted. However, there is a HUGE gap between the panes that allows water to escape if water stream hits doors. Even worse the low profile metal strip at the bottom... terrible design. The tolerance of the receiver is extremely small, with no adjustment so if they are off even 1/16" the doors will hit the receivers and have to flex to close. But the worst part is the tiny metal strip on the bottom has NO weatherstrip which allows water to literally splash out right under the door. And if the stream of water hits the door the water just flows up and over the sill. Its ironic that they provide very effective weatherstrip for the sides, but none for the bottom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp looking shower door My husband and I just finished remodeling our master bath. We took out a fiber glass tub surround, installed marble tile and this shower door sets it off nicely. Same problem with the instructions as other comment - but DreamLine emailed the correct ones. Pretty easy to install and very heavy doors (a little too heavy for senior citizens to install but we managed and really appreciate that they are so heavy now they are in use).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Door This is a fine door, very heavy and a good buy. The only problem is that the installation directions which were packaged with the product were apparently for an older design, and did not match the parts list of the door which was sent. I was able to get help from Dreamline online and download the revised installation instructions. It is apparent from other comments that this problem has occurred before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shower door and amazing customer service This is a beautiful shower door I bought to complete my spa inspired bathroom remodel. I also purchased the bathtub Essence door for my other bathroom. It looks amazing. Also, amazing customer service! My installer broke some parts during install and Dreamline shipped them out to me right away at no cost. Couldn't be happier! Thank you!

Can the outside door be made to be made the inside door. My shower head is on the right so the I want the door on the right to be on the inside. Is this possible?

Asked by: RoyK
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine! The DreamLine Essence shower door is a bypass shower door, with both panels able to move. The beauty of a bypass shower door is that you are able to position the inner panel on the same side as your shower head, with the outer panel on the far end. It sounds like this will work perfectly for you! If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866.731.2244. We are available 8am-7pm EST, Monday through Friday, and Saturdays from 9am to 5pm EST and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I am installing Ann essence shower door in a shower with a cast iron tub. How do I install the guide blocks for the bottom into a cast iron tub? Drilling holes does not seem to be the right thing to do. 

Asked by: Phil71
Thank you for your question. The Essence Shower Door requires drilling into the threshold for installation. I would advise to contact the manufacturer of the tub for proper drilling instructions. If you do not feel comfortable drilling into the tub, DreamLine does have a Duet Tub Door (SHDR-1260588) and Infinity Z Tub Door (SHDR-0960580) that do not require drilling into the tub. Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866-731-2244 or via email at support@dreamline.com. We are available 8am to 7pm EST, Monday through Friday and Saturday from 9am to 5pm EST. Thank you for your interest in DreamLine!

Does this shower door have the coating on both sides of the glass? If not, how do I know which side has the coating?

Asked by: Mike26
Thank you for your question. The DreamLine Essence Shower Door has Clearmax only on one side of the glass because it is a bypass sliding Shower Door. There will be a ClearMax sticker on the glass to indicate which side the coating is on. If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866-731-2244 or via email at support@dreamline.com.
