Essence Sliding Shower Door

Essence Shower Door is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
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.

Is the DreamLine Essence shower glass only treated with Clear Max on the one side with the label or is both sides treated? SHDR-6360760-04

Asked by: 7david
It would be helpful if you put this information on the printed installation guide that came with the shower door. We completely installed the shower door and then later realized that one of our glass panes is installed so that the sticker faces out instead of in. We had no idea that the glass was only coated on one side or that the sticker indicated that side.

Ref. SHDR-6360760-04 with 5/16" or 8 mm thick glass - Are there clear vinyl edge and bottom glass door seals for this model? Can you link me to those or provide product #'s?

Asked by: 7david
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine. The Essence does not have vinyl strips on the sides or the bottom of the panels. There are strips that attach to the wall profiles that the panels close against, but nothing on the panels and we do not recommend adding any to the panels. When in stalled properly, you should not have any water escaping from the door. 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.

Can the outside door be made to be made the inside door. My shower head is on the right so the I want the door on the right to be on the inside. Is this possible?

Asked by: RoyK
Thank you for reaching out to DreamLine! The DreamLine Essence shower door is a bypass shower door, with both panels able to move. The beauty of a bypass shower door is that you are able to position the inner panel on the same side as your shower head, with the outer panel on the far end. It sounds like this will work perfectly for you! 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.

I am installing Ann essence shower door in a shower with a cast iron tub. How do I install the guide blocks for the bottom into a cast iron tub? Drilling holes does not seem to be the right thing to do. 

Asked by: Phil71
Thank you for your question. The Essence Shower Door requires drilling into the threshold for installation. I would advise to contact the manufacturer of the tub for proper drilling instructions. If you do not feel comfortable drilling into the tub, DreamLine does have a Duet Tub Door (SHDR-1260588) and Infinity Z Tub Door (SHDR-0960580) that do not require drilling into the tub. Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please contact the DreamLine Customer Support Team at 866-731-2244 or via email at support@dreamline.com. We are available 8am to 7pm EST, Monday through Friday and Saturday from 9am to 5pm EST. Thank you for your interest in DreamLine!
