Aqua Lux Hinged Shower Door 48" x 58" with Clear Glass - Reversible for Left or Right Installations
Not for use with body jets
I love the look of this door and it was well-installed by my contractor. Unfortunately, I didn't realize until after the fact that it would not work with body jets. Even though the jets are at the front of the shower, they are forceful enough to splash at the back of the tub, and water leaks (alot!) outside the enclosure. There is also slight leak at the hinge which I could live with if it were in my own bath -- I would wipe up the excess moisture; but it is in a teen's bath and no hope of that! A great looking door if you have only a fixed shower head and can put up with a very slight leak at the hinges. I will have to try a sliding glass door that provides complete closing.

great customer support
I have never written product review online, but I had to do it this time.
Shower door arrived on time, good packaging prevented any chance of damage due to transportation. My contractor installed the door in no time, I love the bold look of it and it is very easy to maintain.
However, my contractor made a mistake and cut bottom antiwater plastic strip too short, so there was space where vertical plastic strip and bottom plastic strip meet, and water leaked through it.
I called Dreamline and they shipped me another bottom antiwater plastic strip at no charge.
I would certainly recommend purchasing Dreamline products.

I purchased unit with chrome finished hardware.
For the price - excellent, well made, beautiful product.
Good packaging; all parts in the box.
To be fully satisfied with your installation, before you place an order check that wall you will install it on forms perfect 90 deg angle with the top of tub. Measured at the top of glass panel, hardware will allow max 1/4" tolerance from that angle. Otherwise you will have to use shims at wall brackets and wide sealant joints.
Before installation RED AND UNDERSTAND INSTRUCTIONS !!!
For a perfect look. after installation, using sharp utility knife, trim neoprene gaskets used to separate glass from metal surfaces of brackets and hinges. They will protrude a little bit beyond metal.

Beautiful but not that functional
I love the look of this door enough to consider keeping it, but I have a fixed shower head and no matter how how I angle it or how close to the front of the shower I stand, water gets absolutely everywhere. I'm going to try other shower heads before returning it since I like the look so much, but it really doesn't do a whole lot to keep the water in.

This was easy to install and looks amazing. We chose it for it's frameless look and the fact that it fits a non standard 66" tub.
My contractor was concerned that the only thing holding the stationery panel to the tub at the bottom is caulking; the bracket at the bottom is not fixed other than by caulking (unless you drill a hole in your tub which we did not).
Buying from faucet direct is easy and the customer support is superb.

Great option, Terrific delivery
I'm renovating my hall bathroom and have a bathtub with a curved sidewall. We needed a glass door solution that had a very narrow footprint. This provides a great option. The Euro-style is eye-catching as well. Very high quality hardware included. Still installing, but will look smashing.
I ordered it on Monday morning taking advantage of free shipping. The unit arrived (very well packaged) Tuesday morning and will be completely installed (by me) today, Wednesday morning! True, the shipping point was near my home but pretty amazing.

Sometimes You Get It Just Right
I had never seen a product like this before but decided to order it. The look is subtle and sleek. So seamless that you do a double-take before realizing it's a glass door. But once you focus, "Oh Boy!" what an amazing look.

I took a chance buying this shower door. I was afraid it would be flimsy. However, it exceeded my expectations and everyone who has seen it has raved about it.
