Essence Sliding Shower Door

Essence Sliding Shower Door is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Modern Design; Disappointing Material Quality Really like the brushed nickel frameless design. However, the materials and sturdiness of doors is disappointing. The bottom track brackets are made of plastic. The vertical frames utilize a flimsy vinyl strip to keep water splash in. The doors squeak when opening and closing. The towel bars are made of hollow aluminum and not a solid bar and the finish shows smudges.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shower door We bought this door and really it's a great door. The coating on the glass keep the door looking nice and the quality was great. It took me a little bit to get it installed but it is nice not having a full size track just having the narrow strp on the bottom works out fine. Glad we bought the door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service and really nice door! Purchased last month and was self installed. First off, i would definitely recommend having the door professionally installed if you are not really comfortable or knowledgeable with the process of this task. I personally had to learn the hard way when i did not take my time in the installation and caused one of the door panels to shatter. It was a mistake on my part during the installation and i was really bummed thinking i was going to have to shell out another chunk of change to have the doors replaced. A quick call to customer service and the result was that they said they would ship out a replacement panel ASAP. a few days later and the new panels (they sent both replacements) arrived and were installed in minutes. My girlfriend and I were ecstatic with how understanding and quick customer service was in helping us, even though we told them it was our mistake during the install. I cannot say enough about how happy we are with the doors. They look amazing and really give the shower an upscale feel. I would definitely recommend this door and this company to friends and family.

My walk in shower is not tile, but a shower "wrap" (fiberglass/plastic 3 sides). The width is 55 1/2". Will wither the Essence or Essence H work on showers that are not tiled? Thanks!

Asked by: cmarti92
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. All DreamLine shower/tub doors and enclosures require smooth, solid finished walls, true 90° angles where the wall meets the threshold, and finished walls that are at least as tall as the shower/tub door or enclosure. If the walls of your fiberglass enclosure have any give or flex to them when you push on the wall, most likely there is a pocket of dead space behind the wall and the wall is not solid. Please make sure that your shower/tub meets these requirements for installation before making your choice. 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.

Second question: my tiiled threshold is 5.5" wide. Install instructions say to set the bottom rail ⅛" from the outside (front) of the threshold. I would prefer to set it in 1-½" from the front of the threshold. Any reason not to? Thanks.

Asked by: Jimbo33
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. With a wide threshold like yours, you can definitely move that threshold in. Our dimensions and specifications are based on a DreamLine SlimLine shower base with a threshold width of 2-3/4" wide. You certainly can enlarge that bottom rail placement from the front of the threshold. Keep in mind that the Essence requires 2-3/4" of threshold space when determining placement of the bottom rail. 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.

We're looking at the Essence doors. Our tiled shower is 46" across on the curb. Left wall is dead-on plumb, but right wall is ¼" out of plumb, so the measurement  across (72" up from the curb) is 46 ¼". Will the wall profiles cover that discrepancy?

Asked by: Jimbo33
Thank you for your interest in DreamLine Shower Doors! The Essence has aluminum water guards that can accommodate up to 1/4" for out-of-plumb (uneven) walls. The aluminum water guards install flush against the finished walls and extend approximately 1/2" off of the wall. To view a close up image of the aluminum water guards and how they sit flush against the finished walls, please view image 3 in the photo gallery for this model. Again, thank you for contacting DreamLine Shower Doors! We invite you to contact our DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866-731-2244 to discuss this further. We can also be reached by sending an email to support@dreamline.com and through our LiveChat feature on DreamLine.com.

Can you get this door in frosted glass

Can the essence be used on a 54" wide finished opening?

Asked by: Janie
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. Unfortunately, we do not recommend adjusting the Essence down to fit a 54" opening. Doing so will leave you with a small walk through opening and a larger overlap of the glass panels. DreamLine does have the Encore shower door in our stock product line that is designed and proportioned to be used in a 54" opening, however. The model number for the Encore is SHDR-1654760 and it is available in the same finishes as the Essence. 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.

what is the difference between the essence 6360760-01 and the essence 636076h? why w2ould I prefer one over the other?

Asked by: mrata
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 or would like to discuss this further, 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 purchased two of what I think is this shower door in 2013. They were installed by the building contractor and all installation paperwork thrown away. Now the outside door will not roll open or close.Where and how do I adjust it?

Asked by: tommie
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. Unfortunately, DreamLine was not manufacturing the Essence shower door in 2013, and we did not have anything similar at that time. It most likely is not a DreamLine shower door. I will be sending you an email and if you would like to reply to that email with some photos of the door, I can verify if it is a DreamLine or not. You are also welcomed to contact our Customer Support Team for verification. DreamLine's Customer Support Team can be reached by phone at 866-731-2244 or by email at support@dreamline.com. We are available M-F from 8am-7pm EST and Saturday from 9am-5pm EST. We are also available through LiveChat on the website or by emailing support@dreamline.com. Thank you!
