23 years ago, I installed a tub sliding door when I first bought my house. Now, I am remodeling my bathroom by throwing away the 23 years old tub sliding door and installing a new one. To my surprise, although the price is doubled, the quality is worse.
Here are some critical issues not friendly for customers.
1). The Jambs are the most important parts in the entire assembly. It should not be challenging if the design is appropriate.
1st of all, the 5/16 drill for the type of wall anchor for fiberglass tub is way over kill. There are a lot of wall anchors out there, and most common wall anchors only need 3/16 drill size far more than enough to securing the Jambs. The current wall anchor is too hard of a material. One of the screws for the wall anchor already stripped in the head before it bottoms out.
Secondly, the jamb is an extruded aluminum with a channel facing to the wall. The channel depth is 1/2" depth to be exact. Because of the hollow channel, overtightening the screw could deform the surface of the channel. Therefore, I purchased 6X 1/2" thick spacers separately from a local hardware store and plan on placing them in the channel behind the screw to prevent the aluminum channel from deforming. However, I could not proceed with my idea because the wall anchor heads are not flush to the wall, but stuck out 1/16".
Thirdly, the Jambs and cross members at bottom and on top are aluminum powder coated in black. They are not oil rubbed bronze, not even close to a faked one.
I would redesign the Jambs starting out with replacing the wall anchor with smaller diameter ones so that they can be mounted flush to the surface of tub wall if I were the engineer for the tub door. I would add 6 spacers behind the screws in the channel. I would use a little shorter screws for this application.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Teri This product looks great and has reversible header.
This product is generally easy to install for the average do-it-yourselfer. The specs for the height of the unit are misleading however, the product claims that it is 56 1/2 inches tall. The side wall rails measure 56 3/4 inches and when header is rested on top of that it adds an inch and a half- for a total height of 58 1/4 inches tall! I checked with Delta customer service and they measured their side wall rails and also came up with 56 3/4 as well. They couldn't explain but offered to take them back. Also if you purchase the oil rubbed bronze, the finish scratches off easily. All on all not high on my recommend list.

The shower-tub enclosure door, came with everything it was supposed to come with, in the cartons! That in itself is a great testimony for Home Depot. If you have ever bought anything that needs assembly or installation, it seems something is always missing. It looked just like the pictures we ordered from on line and the delivery date was actually sooner than promised. The installation went very well except for the unexpected challenge of drilling through the new ceramic tile. I went back to Home Depot for appropriate drill bits, and along with a little patience on my part, got it installed correctly. The only hitch was, being the non mechanic I am, I managed to over tighten one of the screws that hold the roller assembly intact on top of the sliding shower doors. When that stripped out, I was almost done with the project and it really dampened my excitement about how good I had done. I made a call to Home Depot customer service department and was relieved to be able to get another roller assembly coming by mail, and the best part is they did not charge me for the new roller and screws even though it was my fault, not theirs. Thank you for the More than good service!

Everything fit together well, a simple and easy installation. Instructions were well written.
The handles are a little loose in the brackets. For all except the Panache series the instructions tell you to silicone the rods into the brackets. I'll go back and silicone them in and the problem will be solved.
BLACK is not "oil rubbed bronze", and I'd have been upset if I hadn't read the reviews from others warning about that.
The frameless doors open up the room and make it look larger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pstefa Well constructed and smoothly functioning shower door
Color is quite nice and very true to product photo. Installation was done by a contractor doing other projects on the house but was accomplished quite quickly. All parts included and well packaged item.
Smooth sliding mechanism. Coating on doors is a plus in hard/well water environment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JosephineAverage Easy install, excellent quality
Surprisingly, all the correct parts were there and nothing was damaged. It did come with a couple rubber bumpers that are optional to use. I elected not to use them since they were bulky, ugly gray and I had no idea where they were to be placed. I used the small clear ones instead. I installed the door in my remodel. Since my walls were perfectly flush and the tub level, this install was a breeze. The metal is strong and not tinny. Instead of using a hacksaw to cut the frame to size, I used a 4" grinder with a metal cutoff wheel for a quicker smoother cut.The instructions were clear but the diagrams a bit lacking. The glass is thick and the edges smooth with no chips or burrs. The doors are a bit awkward but not too heavy to manage alone for a 120 lb girlie like me. I was particularly happy with the way the doors rolled so smoothly. Just be careful to roll slowly or else they get away from you and end with a bang against the frame bumpers (2 for each side). The screws are silver and my frame is bronze so I used a black sharpy to disguise the screw heads. I like how the towel bars are mounted through pre drilled holes in the glass. The escutcheons are flat so the doors slide open without striking or scraping them. My only regret was that during packing there were a couple stickers and a huge smear of tape adhesive on the glass that did not come off easily. Due to the chemical restrictions in the care and maintenance section, I used WD40 to clean off the adhesive.
