Beautiful, well made shower door
We're remodeling our master bathroom and I thought this shower door would be perfect. The fixtures we're using have a matching nickel finish and we wanted a modern, high end look. I've used Delta tub doors in the past and I was extremely pleased with the quality and look, so I wanted to give them another try.
The Delta system has three components that allow you to customize the look. You need to measure the opening and choose the type of door (sliding or pivoting). Choose the glass (some are

clear, while others have patterns), rails (different finishes) and hardware (handles). You can mix and match, or choose a whole kit like this one.
The installation is no different than a "regular" shower door. First, I removed the old shower door by cutting the caulk away first, then removing the screws and taking the top rail off first. I then pulled the side rails off (cutting the caulk with a utility knife as I pulled it from the wall). Finally, I removed the bottom rail (I pried it up, then jammed my putty knife under to cut the silicone holding it).
These next steps are not necessary, unless you're doing a full remodel, like we did. I took the tiles off the wall, then removed the shower pan. I installed the new shower pan and tiled the wall.
Now I'm ready to install the shower door. I cut and installed the lower threshold piece and door guide with silicone. Next, I installed the side rails, drilled holes in the tile and screwed the rails into the side of the shower opening. I then cut and installed the top rail and used silicone to hold it in place. I then caulked the entire rail system with silicone and let it dry. While it was drying, I installed the hardware to the glass doors. When the silicone was dry, I hung the doors on the rail and my shower was done. The installation took about 30 minutes of work (plus a couple hours of wait time).
The shower looks fantastic. The doors are nice thick glass (1/4" thick). The hardware and rails are very modern and feels good to the touch. The rollers slide smoothly and the glass is clear and flawless.
If you're looking for a modern, luxurious, high quality shower door set, this is the one to buy. I highly recommend it.
