Rated 5 out of 5Â by WolfPac The Perfect Shower Door
I ordered the Purist Frame-less Pivot shower door online, received it in a timely fashion and my husband installed it himself. The door is substantial (1/4 inch crystal clear glass), quite impressive, elegant and easily installed providing you read the directions, thoroughly, BEFORE you begin installation and not as you go along.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Larry771 I like the product but I think the directions for installation should be clearer..It would help to enlarge some of the detail illustrations.
Instructions could be better. Fitting of the threshold is required for fiberglass enclosures since they have rounded edges at the corners. Shimming may be required at jam if glass can't be adjusted to seat properly without scrapping threshold.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by gilcapino Get a custom frameless door for the same price without the effort.
This door is not frameless. It is semi-frameless with side metal panels and a full metal threshold. You can get a frameless door installed by a professional for only $100 more than your material cost for this door - and you won't spend a frustrating day trying to get it installed. The threshold design is custom designed to leak under an ugly brown gasket that sticks out like a sore thumb visually. I contacted Kohler support with the threshold issue and they have not responded to me after an original email acknowledgement of my issue. So pay $750 for a custom totally frameless door and don't buy this one.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DBJ1 Good, except,
Product delivered as promised. Good quality merchandise except missing parts which delayed assembly. One part arrived within a few days and assembly could be completed. Instruction manual indicates drill bits are included which they are not. Kohler should include part numbers on the instruction manual for ease of installation as the illustrations are confusing. Would expect more quality control for price paid.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tobi1177 Great Value with WOW Factor - transformative.
Kohler Purist was a great find offering Great Value for the price. Worth what I paid for. After installation, it transformed the look of the shower . Installation instructions can be clearer than provided. Had trouble finding the âbushingâ. Diagram and illustrations were not representative of the fact the bushing came in two pieces/parts. Wasted time looking for it and thinking it was not packaged in the delivery. Was about to call Kohler USA, but then realized the two halves completed the bushing. So be aware of this hiccup. Otherwise, the door was shipped as scheduled (actually earlier than expected) and with no broken glass. Had read other reviewers having received the door with broken pieces. Didnât happen on this shipment. After figuring out all the parts were in order, installation was straight forward.
Great feature is this door is flexible in width for rough opening dimensions. Advertised as a 33-inch door, but after exhaustive reading of the literature deduced the door can fit a 30-inch opening. This was not the clearest advertisement information. Excellent feature to know the door has a plus/minus three inch adjustment in the width. Yes â great value/great price for WOW factor. Instructions not best. so read twice or thrice.
