Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Herptiles A nice looking shower door, a step up from the flat standard
The directions are not as well done as the could be, would recommend reading through and dry fitting items looking at schematic, sequencing, and part numbers several times.
Note to put the 'washer' that holds the screw cover BEFORE putting in screw that receives said cover. Should be more prevalent in the sequencing instruction.
This model has doors that both slide open, no fixed door. The installation of the door handle hardware per the instruction does seem to hit the glass, but flipping the configuration around does not. The inside handle clears the outside and vis versa. The handles should not hit the glass, if they do switch them around.
Was able to make this work with a standard tub, trimming a 1/4 inch off each end of the railing. All in all was very pleased with the end result.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Looks great when finished in bronze.
I was not sure I was going to purchase this door as everything in my bathroom that I just remodeled was done in bronze and the door is only available in nickel and would had stood out like a sore thumb, I purchased it at the store. Both the store price and the online price was $439. I almost purchased it online to have it ready for pickup but at the last second I figured I would just go to the store that had it in stock and pay for it there. To my surprise, it rung up at $399, good thing I waited to purchase it at the store. as the web site had the price in my cart at $439. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, it is packed very well and yes there are a lot of small parts. It says to use two people to assemble this door, well; that was not going to be as it is just myself but after remodeling this 50 year old bathroom with wire reinforced cement under the old tile and plaster walls, this was a breeze. As my title says, I finished it in bronze. I used 3 coats of Rust-Oleum Universal11 oz. All Surface Flat Metallic Burnished Amber Spray Paint and topped it off with 2 coats of polyurethane. This took me two days to do a complete paint job outside, I had a couple of sunny 80 degree days with little wind so it could not have been better. All of the metal parts were painted before I put anything together. After I was satisfied with the finish, I bulit the frame on top of my bed to make sure it would get scratched from being on the floor. The instructions could have been left out and it might have been easier. They are not much help but I managed to get through them, Attaching the frame o the wall was easy and adding the doors was just about as easy. I did loosen the rollers as one of the other posters above suggested and this did make it easier to hang the doors. It does open either way and has a nice solid feel too it. All in all, I am very pleased with this purchase, This is in a bathroom that is hardly ever used so the finish should hold up very well.

Follow the directions but when installing doors, loosen the rollers slightly. This allows the roller to snap into the guide more easily. Tighten the rollers and finish following the directions. We're very satisfied with this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bridge About to install. I'll follow up when completed....
After a mind bending remodel of my bathroom, I'm about to install the final finishing touch. The Ovation Curved Glass doors. I've unpacked the unit which was packaged very well. I have millions of pieces of various guides & hardware spread out like a surgeon. I'm doing it alone and I'm a average/slightly above average handyman. My follow up should provide a good idea for those considering this beautiful unit as to what they are facing on what appears to be a major install. One last thing: I've never installed a glass shower door.
Wish me luck.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CAG Ovation Shower Door
Just finished installing this in our bathroom. Too many screws and it takes 6 hands to put all four pieces of the frames together and hold it so it doesn't fall apart- didn't have a bed to put it on like the other reviewer but great idea! Didn't realize you need to put the little plastic washers for the screw covers on before you put the screws in, so no screw covers - but nobody will notice. The big problem is the sliding door when you open it, the outer door handle BANGS into the fixed glass. Called the company to see if they had a solution to the problem and they don't recognize it as a problem- although I see another comment on it. Otherwise the door looks very nice and no leaks so far and I would still recommend it. I would also like both doors to slide. Seems like they could do this easily. Call the American Standard and complain since it appears there is nowhere to leave a comment on their website!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by michaelreyes Don't buy if your width size is lager then 58.5 inches.
Disappointed to find out that the door won't fit properly due to the fact that it is too short. My open width size was 59" inches apparently the max open width for this product is 58.5'' inches even though it's being advertised as a 60'' inch width door.
The quality of this product is ok. I spent 300 dollars on a door that had much better quality. Screws strip easily and what is up with all the plastic pieces?
I wish I could comment on installation a little further, but I can't seeing that it didn't fit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SensibleFamily Better Model than Competitor
I've been looking at Ovation, a HD exclusive, and a nearly identical model by American Standard called Saver which is made exclusively for the blue competitor chain. The HD door seems significantly better because it does indeed open from both sides, whereas the one at the other store was fixed on one side. (This based on Ovation display models in 3 different HD stores, though just one Saver display in one "blue" store.) The Saver enclosure also had a slight cosmetic difference in that the top metal "header" piece had a curved profile -- versus the flat profile you see on this HD model. The curved feature made it look sloppier because it did not attach to the vertical pieces in a flush manner -- there is a gap, for some strange reason. So, if your contractor is doing the buying, I think you should make sure that you are getting the HD Ovation, not the "Saver" model. Saver also does not claim to be nickel finish, just "silver". Hard to say without putting them side by side, but my impression was a "cooler" finish than the warmer nickel color. The Saver finish might be a better choice with chrome fixtures.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tacoma Not exactly what is described
Manufacturer website says double rolling doors. Home depot says opens from left or right. This is very misleading. One door is stationary, and must be installed permanently on left or right. Only one door rolls. After setting up pan and tiling walls, then unboxing door, discovered this issue. It would be highly preferable for BOTH doors to slide. I think it is misleading advertising. This lack of flexibilty causes me to not recommend product.
