Sliding Shower Doors


Dear NH,
I read your comments on sliding shower doors. I made a trackless sill for my shower many years ago. I used a piece of 1.5"x1.5" angle aluminum that worked just fine. An added bonus was I could remove the doors for cleaning without any tools.

You don't need that little nylon guide for the center that the manufactured doors come with. It doesn't really serve any function when you are in the shower and you are really not supposed to lean on them from the outside.

MB,
Very creative solution. However, I disagree that the nylon guide that keeps the doors in line has no use. Though the nylon guides are not extremely strong, someone with balance problems or a child who leans on the door may take a fall. Falls in bathrooms are never pretty, with all the unforgiving hard surfaces.

Also, when an adult leans on a shower door most of the force is against the upper track, not the bottom guide.
