Essence Sliding Shower Door is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
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 3 out of 5 by from Tight tolerances Doors work well. However, we found the tolerances to line up bottom of doors on guides too exact, even though our alignments were on. I thought the chaulked only side/bottom rails , and plastic splash gaurds could've been designed better. Walls were level, but couldn't get adjustable rollers to align glass flush to walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean lines and Good looks This door is a very good choice for quality and integrity. I found nothing flimsy or poorly designed. It shipped safely on a pallet and had all the hardware and instructions needed for installation. Bought this through one of the big box stores, but I believe this product is a 'cut above' so many others out there. I am the home owner, and this being my first glass shower door install - was put off slightly by the instructions almost insisting that the door be installed by a professional installer. I do many DIY projects, and this was intended to be one of them. This would not be a DIY project for novices or for individuals w/o tools and some experience. If you can follow instructions (do all of them - they don't explain why, but it becomes apparent as you go), if you can measure, if you can read a level for plumb, & if you have a little craftsmanship in you (can cut where you measured to) - you can do this project. Just take your time and do it right. Measure twice, cut once.

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.

Do you need blocking or stud behind the tile for the top rail.

What should I use to clean the shower doors? Any specific product or just a regular glass cleaner?

Asked by: Naomi
Thank you for your interest in DreamLine Shower Doors! DreamLine recommends using mild, liquid dish soap and warm water to clean our products. Please do not use anything caustic, abrasive, or ammonia-based to clean our products. While the ClearMax™ protective coating helps to keep your glass sparkling, the best defense against water spots and soap scum is to remove the water from the panels after showering, using a squeegee or a soft cloth. Again, thank you for contacting DreamLine Shower Doors! If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866.731.8378.

What side should the clearmax label be on the glass doors?  Should you be able to read it from inside the shower or outside?  Mine were installed two different ways.  I love the doors!

Asked by: Rebecca1
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The ClearMax labels should be on the inside of the shower. The panel that has the label on the outside is installed incorrectly and should be corrected. If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866.731.8378. We are available 8am-6pm EST, Monday through and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. You may also send an email to support@dreamline.com or use our LiveChat feature on DreamLine.com.

My finished wall opening is 43-3/4”. Is there a reason the guide rails for your bypass doors cannot be trimmed an addition 1/4” smaller than the stated 44” minimum. 

Asked by: Hokie
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. You can trim the rails down so that your Essence fits a 43-3/4" opening. Please be aware that your access width will be smaller and the overlap of the doors will be greater by the 1/4". We hope this is helpful. If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866.731.2244.

is there any play in installing this essence door? i.e. the bottom is 57.5 wide and top is 58...

Asked by: CFOs
Thank you for your interest in DreamLine Shower Doors! The Essence Shower Door that you referenced has aluminum water guards that accommodate up to 1/4" for out-of-plumb (uneven) walls. If your walls are more than 1/4" out of plumb, this model will not install properly. Unfortunately, this model will not accommodate a 1/2" of out of plumb adjustment.

What is the walk-through height for this door? I only see width but not height, and some retailers have walk-through height but it is listed at 76" which is the height of the glass so the rail must be lower than that.

Asked by: youngt2
Thank you for your interest in DreamLine Shower Doors! The shower height clearance for the Essence Bypass Shower Door is approximately 71 11/16".

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.
