Essence Sliding Shower Door is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
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 5 out of 5 by from Don’t shy away from this product The delivery proved to be efficient and the product intact. All components were labeled and corresponded with the enclosed inventory list provided in the instructions. As a builder for over 40 years I found the instructions intuitive and complete. The import for installing this product plumb and aligned with specs can’t be stressed enough. Having done so the operation of the doors is first class. I would only recommend this installation to be performed by an accomplished professional or a seasoned DIY who has a strong grasp on how to lay-out measurements. The step by step instructions will provide a thorough and linear progression towards a clean and efficiently operating product.

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 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Shower Doors We just recently needed new shower doors for our Master Bathroom and I was recommended by a friend to check our Dreamline and I am very happy that I did. I actually had someone come out and install my shower doors and they had no issue with the instructions as some have stated. The gentleman that installed our doors however insured us that he does this quite often so I think this is why he was able to install with ease. Reading other reviews I was nervous of the finish and the plastic pieces that everyone was mentioning prior to me purchasing the doors, but once installed and seeing them up I think the shower doors are perfect! They do not look plastic to me nor feel cheap at all, I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have had this shower door installed for about a month, and I really like it. The width of mine is between 56" and 60" - formerly a standard tub. The overall look is sleek, the materials have a very high quality appearance and the doors work well for me so far, and I feel that it will last well. I had a contractor install the door, which was definitely the right thing to do for me. After he was finished I got excellent help from the technical support people at Dreamline on a follow-up that I needed. I felt the price was very reasonable. Overall, very thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice , but instructions are off [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Its everything they say , very nice , but the instructions are off a little , but its not a big deal , example -- they tell you to measure from the threshold 71 1/8 , but they say that after you put in the bottom bracket , so then you have to do a angled measurement . Also the top rail , they say to measure opening and take off 1/4 inch , i had to take off a least 3/8 in. , and other people stated the same in the reviews. But its all good anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great improvement to our bathroom I bought this Essence shower door set from Home Depot and am extremely pleased with how the project turned out. I read the manual several times before installing the doors myself. I made sure all my measurements were precise (a must) and that my walls were plumb. My shower base was slightly off-level and I thought that might cause a problem, but the guide blocks do their job and hold the doors in place. Since I had studs behind the wall brackets I didn't have to use the wall anchors, so I am confident that the brackets will hold the weight of the doors, which are over 100 lbs. I would prefer that the door adjustment discs allowed for larger adjustments than they do, to accommodate slight irregularities in wall construction, but all in all this was a great project with a very successful outcome.

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).

My tiled opening will be 55” wide; is it possible to  trim the 56-60” essence another 1” to use the wider door?

Asked by: Deano
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. We cannot recommend that you go below the model's stated minimum tolerances. Cutting the Essence shower door's upper rail down shorter than the model minimum will reduce the walk-in entry and will create a greater overlap between the two glass doors. If you have any other questions, we invite you to contact our DreamLine PreSales Consultants at 866-282-8413. We can also be reached by sending an email to support@dreamline.com. Our hours of operation are 9am-6pm EST, Monday through Friday. Thank you for your interest in DreamLine.

Are the glass door panels identical? My installer switched the inside/outside panels. The doors do not slide very easy either, was wondering if the panels being switched is the cause?

Asked by: BrianD
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The Essence shower door has 2 sliding panels and they are not identical. There is a specific inside panel and a specific outside panel. Up at the top of the glass where the roller would install, the outside door glass will have 4 holes (a left and right hole for the rollers and a left and right hole for the roller guards directly beneath each hole for the rollers). If the inside glass and outside glass are reversed and installed incorrectly, this needs to be corrected so that the doors function safely and properly. We invite you to contact our Customer Support Team and discuss this further with an installation specialist. DreamLine's Customer Support Team can be reached by phone at 866-731-8378 or by email at support@dreamline.com. We are available M-F from 8am-6pm EST.

On an Essence Bypass 60" W sliding door -- can it be installed with no base guide piece at the door opening? We need a zero bump at the opening to the shower for a wheel chair. We would place the center guid block of course.

Asked by: Rick Houston
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. It is not advisable to install the Essence bypass door without the bottom rail and doing so could lead to leaking. The DreamLine Essence may not provide you with an acceptable access width for use with a wheel chair. Currently, our products are not ADA compliant and wheel chair access widths require a much wider opening to prevent the wheel chair from bumping into the glass panel. If you have any other questions, please contact a DreamLine PreSales Consultant at 866.282.8413. We are available 9am-6pm EST, Monday through Friday and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
