Not all showers must have curtains, even if they are shower-bathtub combinations. By replacing a shower curtain with a glass door, more light will reach the showering area. This simple change gives the bathroom a more modern appearance and provides convenient access to the tub or shower. As part of a complete bathroom redesign, it is a functional change with a decorator touch.
You will need:
Step 1: Drill holes into the shower or bathtub walls for installation of the side walls for your new shower door. Run a bead of silicone along the underside of the threshold piece. Place the threshold in the proper location and use the tape to temporarily secure it.
Step 2: With the hammer, tap a plastic anchor in each of the holes drilled into the wall in the previous step.
Step 3: Slide the new door side rails into the door threshold piece. Use the screwdriver to secure the screws through the side rails and into the anchors in the wall.
Step 4: Rubber spacers are provided with the shower door. Insert these into the left side of the door threshold channel. These are used to secure the stationary panel portion of the door.
Step 5: Exercising care, slide the stationary panel into the rail on the left side. Attach both the center and top rails to this panel.
Step 6: Snap the provided fillers into the door threshold and top rail in the area where the swinging section of the door will be installed.
Step 7: Using the wood shims, press a glazing strip into channels on both sides of the stationary glass panel.
Step 8: Attach the swinging door hinge to the frame threshold and bottom rail, then snap the door in place carefully.
