Fluence Frameless Bypass Shower Door with Clear Glass - 56-5/8" to 59-5/8" W x 70-5/16" H
Better than expected
I have to say price was the major selling point for this product. My son-in-law is a contractor and was renovating an existing bathroom with tub and was to convert it to a shower only.He gutted the room down to studs. I asked him to look at the description of this shower door. He said it was not worth it to pay for thicker glass at twice the price. You do not need that for sliding doors, only hinged ones. I had read other reviews of this product which said the doors were noisy and cheaply made. The doors are beautiful, do not make noise and are very easy to clean. He also said they were designed well and easy to install for a professional. I can only conclude that the poor reviews were do to less than professional installation. I would definitely buy them again.

Mediocre At Best
Got this door based on the glowing reviews (which now seem fake).
This is a very average product, and certainly no better than what you see in your local big box home improvement store. The metal is very thin. It feels cheap. It is worse than the "bottom of the line" contractor-grade product it replaced. The design of the metal parts leaves large gaps that must be filled with caulk to prevent leaks. The rollers are no better than on the cheapest doors available. The design of the door bottoms makes sliding the doors more difficult, and louder, than the doors they replaced. And yes, it is installed per the directions.
The glass is thick enough given the price--not good, just good enough. The "CleanCoat" doesn't shed water well, despite the manufacturers claims. It is no better than on our previous doors.
If I were replacing my doors again, I would go to a local bath supplier and get a better product. For the time it takes to replace doors, I regret buying these.

This shower door, I had priced at several places, but price was too high. Decided to look on line and their the same door was shipped to my house for half the price. It was easy to install and looks great. Thanks from a repeat customer.

decent for the $$
This product is a 'get what you pay for' item. There is nothing wrong with it. Install was easy. The two things that prevent me from giving it a higher rating are the glass and the towel bars.
The glass is 1/4" and really flimsy. I mean it literally bows outward or inward when any kind of pressure meets it. The towel bars look extremely cheap. The finish on them is rough and looks as if someone ran an angle grinder over them before they shipped it out.
Again, it all boils down to price vs. finish. These doors are really nice for the money

very nice product!
After changing out my old built-in tub for a shower only unit, I installed this shower door unit and I love it. Not difficult to install and looks and works great.

This shower door looks great. Installation instructions easy to follow.
I had this delivered to my front door and came in good shape even the box looked like the door could have been damaged. Opened up and the door was not damaged.
Very satisfied with this product.

Good overall door
The door is good overall. It's a good quality, not great. It won't make anyone look twice but it also isn't flimsy and cheap.
