Essence Sliding Shower Door is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Pretty nice shower door kit. Just installed this today. Well designed. Excellent instructions. Nice looking product. As long as your walls are plumb and the threshold level your in good shape. There’s a nice elliptical roller adjustment to fine tune the doors make even contact with the walls. Installer note: If you are installing on tile walls make sure to have a diamond bit for your drill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instructions need some work The Instructions on page 7 Step 2 say to cut the Upper Guide Rail 1/4 shy of the finished opening width. We did this - it did not fit - too long, had to grind it down to fit, thus hacking up the finish. Writing this before the glass even gets installed so I can't tell you how we like it overall except I will have to look at scratched up Top Rail

The manual suggests wiping door after use with soft cloth. BUT there is no mention of how to clean, when not wiped down everytime. How do you clean soap & water residue from glass? Glass cleaner? (Ammonia?) Vinegar & water? Dish soap? Laundry soap?

You do not want to use anything caustic or abrasive on your DreamLine shower door. Also, no vinegar or ammonia.

The installation guide mentions that certain Dreamline models has the Clearmax coating on both sides of the doors. Which model number does that pertain to?

Asked by: Renjamin
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. Models that require ClearMax on both sides are models that have cutouts in the glass for brackets. Typically this would be our Unidoor and Enigma series of doors. Bypass shower doors do not require the ClearMax to be applied to both sides as there are no cutouts in the glass for brackets. Hope this explains it a little better. If you have any other questions, please contact a DreamLine PreSales Consultant at 866.282.8413.

Do you make a set of rollers with a larger adjustment tolerance?

Asked by: Pthill13
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. We do not make a set of rollers with a greater adjustment for tolerance. The Essence is designed to accommodate for up to 1/4" out of plumb adjustment. If you walls are more out of plumb than this, we would not recommend this door for you. You will need something with more framing to work with your walls. 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.

Can these doors be customized for a height of 70" My shower insert walls are 72" total

Asked by: DJFJ
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. If you have a molded fiberglass shower enclosure, DreamLine shower doors will not be able to be installed successfully. 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 note that if you have even one of the above conditions, it will prevent you from installation of a DreamLine shower door. If you have any other questions, please contact a DreamLine PreSales Consultant at 866.282.8413. We are available 9am-6pm EST, Monday through and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
