Essencee Tub Door is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from frameless tub door This was easy to install except it takes two people to hand the glass doors. The materials are of high quality and the glass is thick. I installed it on an acrylic tub enclosure. Take heed of the warning that there is no out of plumb wall adjustment

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had to return this product This is a nice looking door with a great price! The reason for the 2 star rating is real simple. As others have stated, it showed up in a beat up package, lucky there was no damage! But here's the real reason, after unpacking the product and opening the installation instructions it stated in BIG RED LETTERS "This door must be installed by a professional." It is not a great price if I need to call out a professional shower door installer to put it up. That should have been stated in the product description. There were a couple of other smaller issues that I could have over come but calling a pro was a non-starter. Therefore, after waiting for over a month to receive the door, we were disappointed and had to return it. I fixed the packaging so nothing would happen to it in route. On the positive side, I must say the folks at Build.com were very helpful in the process they stayed with me through the whole ordeal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality item, poor delivery and instructions Special ordered this, because it was pretty and in our price range. It came after several weeks which was fine and expected; however, the box was tattered and mostly open, and the installation paperwork was missing (can be downloaded online). We hired a glass company To install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking tub enclosure I installed my Dreamline tub enclosure a week ago it looks good and works great. I would recommend that the installation directions address installation on a enameled steel bath tub, I had concerns about drilling the steel tub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value arrived on time and intact, installation was reasonable and I installed it myself. It did take two of us to hang the doors due to the weight of the glass

what is the difference between Essence and Essence H bypass sliding tub shower door?

Asked by: Tom H
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The differences in the Essence and Essence-H appear mainly in the wall profiles, guide blocks, and threshold requirements. The Essence has a much less obvious wall profile while the Essence-H wall profile has a larger presence. The Essence has 3 guide blocks that will be installed to your threshold while the Essence-H only requires 1 guide block. The Essence requires a 2-3/4” minimum threshold width while the Essence-H requires a minimum 3-1/4” flat threshold space for the wall profiles and 2-3/4” of threshold space for the center guide block. Both models can accommodate up to ¼” for out of plumb conditions. Both models feature the same high quality tempered glass and hardware that is inherent in all DreamLine products. Please enlarge the photos on your monitor to clearly see the differences between the models. If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866.731.2244.

My installer tells me I have a "porcelain covered cast iron tub." And that drilling into my tub may cause it to split and he is encouraging me to NOT buy this tub. Will drilling into my tub cause it to split, crack or other damage?

Asked by: Lee Ann
We had the same issue having a cast iron tub. Kohler said it's very awkward and unusual that a bottom track has to be attached that way and he recommended me to absolutely NOT drill holes into the porcelain coated cast iron tub as this can chip or even create a little crack. Water then could get into the crack and the cast iron will eventually start to rust and the porcelain will flake off.... I wish DreamLine would point out this issue very clear on every site they offer this product.

we purchased the ESSENCE shower/tub door. The install instructions on fig 2 say "W1 - 1/4" and "W2 - 1/16" what does that mean?

Asked by: tara
Great question! W1 is the measurement at the top of your shower opening and W2 is the measurement of the width across the threshold. It is possible that they may be different. Your measurement across the top may be 60" (W1) and the bottom measurement may be 59.75 (W2). As it states on Page 6 of the manual you will need to subtract 1/4" from W1 to bet your length for the top of your opening. Subtract 1/6" from W2 to get your bottom rail measurement. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866.731.2244.
