Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I know what size shower door I need for my opening?

 

A: Ordering the correct size shower/tub door is extremely important for a proper installation. Measuring must be done after the tile or finished wall material has been installed. Check to ensure that your walls are plumb and that your shower base/tub or flat surface shower floor is level. Please refer to our “Finished Wall Dimensions” page for measuring instructions. DreamLine has many models that will work with out of plumb conditions while others are more specific and require plumb walls for installation. Please read the Product Description for out of plumb requirements for the shower door you are interested in.

Q: Where can I purchase the plumbing fixtures or tile shown in the pictures of your shower doors?

 

A: The plumbing fixtures and tiles shown in the pictures are not a specific manufacturer’s product and are used as graphic representations only. At this time, DreamLine does not manufacture plumbing fixtures or tile products.

Q: What should I use to clean my DreamLine shower door?

 

A: We recommend removing water with a glass squeegee or soft cloth after each use to avoid water spots. Clean your door with a soft cloth and a mild soap, such as a liquid dish soap. Do not use any abrasive or harsh cleaners.

Q: What do frameless and semi-frameless mean?

 

 

Q: What size shower base do I need for my shower enclosure?

 

A: All of our shower enclosure models that have matching shower bases will be 2 inches smaller than the corresponding shower base to allow for proper installation. For example, if you are looking at a 34x34 inch shower enclosure, the corresponding shower base will be 36x36 inches.

Q: Are your shower doors reversible?

 

A: Most DreamLine doors are reversible. However, a few doors are specifically made for left or right installation. The products that are not reversible will specify the installation side within the specifications. Feel free to contact our Customer Support technicians with any questions you may have.

Q: Can I purchase just the hardware for this shower door?

 

A: At this time, hardware is not available for individual sale.

Q: Can I purchase just a stationary panel from “model x”?

 

A: At this time, glass panels are not available for individual sale.

Q: What is the difference between a pivot and a hinged shower door?

 

A: A hinged door is attached directly to the wall or stationary glass and opens like an interior door in your house. Hinges attached directly to walls require studs behind the finished walls. A pivot door has a pivot assembly that is attached to a wall profile system that is attached to your finished wall. The pivot assembly attaches to the glass at the top and bottom much like a refrigerator door. It does not require studs behind the finished walls for installation.

Q: What is a bypass sliding door?

 

A: Two glass doors that slide to bypass each other to allow access from either the right or left of the shower space.

Q: What are the Differences Between Bypass and Sliding Shower Doors

 

Q: Do any of your models have a protective glass coating?

 

A: Yes, most of our doors feature ClearMax glass protection which helps prevent the buildup of hard water and lime scale. Check out our product pages to see if ClearMax is included.

Q: Will the shower base from “brand X” work with your shower enclosure?

 

A: Most square and rectangular shower bases will work with our shower enclosures. However, DreamLine's Neo-Angle and Quarter Round shower bases are specifically designed for our Neo-Angle and Quarter Round shower enclosures. Please keep in mind that the shower base is approximately 2 inches larger than the shower enclosures. This is because your base is installed to your studs, while the shower enclosure is installed to your finished walls.

Q: What are the differences between Unidoor, Unidoor Plus, Unidoor Lux, and Unidoor-X?

 

A: The Unidoor can be a single moving glass door or a moving door and stationary glass panel combination. The moving door panel is attached to the wall with hinges and the stationary panel is attached to the wall by a wall and glass profile system. The wall profile is 2" wide and is attached to your wall. The glass profile is first attached to your glass, then you slide this panel into the wall profile. You adjust the panel to your width and plumb specifications this way. The Unidoor has the ability to be adjusted within a 1” range. The Unidoor is a semi-frameless unit. The Unidoor Plus is a moving glass door attached to the wall with hinges and a glass panel attached to the wall with a "U-Channel". The "U-Channel" is a metal frame, 1"wide and the stationary panel slides into it, giving a more frameless look than the Unidoor. The Unidoor Plus has the ability to be adjusted within a ½” range only. The Unidoor Plus is a semi-frameless unit. The Unidoor Lux is a moving glass door attached to the wall with hinges and a stationary glass panel attached to the wall with “wall brackets". Wall brackets look very similar to hinges, but they do not move. The Unidoor Lux is a completely frameless unit with no out-of-plumb adjustment. It is required that your finished opening be a whole number measurement only. Please note: The Unidoor, Unidoor Plus, and Unidoor Lux require double studs or wood blocking behind your finished wall where the door hinges will be mounted. The Unidoor-X features a glass panel, referred to as a hinged panel, mounted to the wall that the moving panel is then installed to. Depending on the size of your opening, there may be a stationary panel that the door closes to. The Unidoor-X is adjustable up to 1/2" on the stationary side, with 1/4" out-of-plumb adjustment on the hinged panel side. The Unidoor-X does not require studs behind your finished walls for installation.

Q: What are the differences between Aqua, Aqua Ultra, Aqua Lux, Aqua Uno, Aqua Swing, and Aqua Fold?

 

A: The Aqua has 1/4" thick glass. The moving door has hinges that attach to a stationary panel and the panel is attached to your wall by a wall and glass profile system. The wall profile is a 2" wide metal channel that the stationary panel slides into, making the Aqua a semi-frameless unit. The Aqua does offer the fullest range of out-of-plumb adjustment (3/8”). The Aqua Ultra has 5/16" thick glass. The moving door has hinges that attach to the stationary panel and the panel is attached to the wall with a "U-Channel". The "U-Channel" is 1" wide and the stationary panel slides into it, giving a more frameless look than the Aqua, but with only a 1/4” of out-of-plumb adjustment. The Aqua Ultra is a semi-frameless unit. The Aqua Lux has 5/16" thick glass. The moving door has hinges that attach to the stationary panel and the panel is attached to the wall with "wall brackets". The Aqua Lux is a completely frameless unit with no out-of-plumb adjustment. The Aqua Uno and the Aqua Swing are tub doors. The Aqua Uno is a single panel of glass that is attached to the wall with hinges and does not offer any out-of-plumb adjustment. The Aqua Uno opens outward. The Aqua Swing is also a single panel and is attached to the wall with a wall profile system, allowing for 3/8" out-of-plumb adjustment. The Aqua Swing is designed to open inward and outward. The Aqua Fold is DreamLine's innovative folding and pivoting door, available in both tub and shower models. The Aqua Fold features two panels that fold inward and that can then pivot outward for full access to you tub or shower. Attached to the walls with a wall profile system, the Aqua Fold has 3/8" adjustment for out-of-plumb conditions. Please enlarge the photos on your computer monitor for the models you are considering to clearly see all the features.

Q: What are the differences between Enigma, Enigma-X, Enigma-XT, Enigma-XO, Enigma-Z, Enigma Air, and Enigma Sky?

 

A: The Enigma has superior 1/2" thick glass. The door has an effortless sliding operation with large quad wheel assemblies on a Stainless Steel track. The Enigma must be mounted on a solid surface or reinforced base and requires a 3 3/4” threshold. The Enigma is a completely frameless unit with no out of plumb adjustment. The Enigma-X has premium 3/8" thick glass. The door has an effortless sliding operation with large dual wheel assemblies on a Stainless Steel track. The Enigma-X requires a 2 3/4” threshold on the shower base. The Enigma-X is a completely frameless unit with no out of plumb adjustment. The Enigma-XT requires the exact installation requirements as the Enigma-X. The distinctive styling of the hardware with its Satin Black accents separates the Enigma-XT from the Enigma-X. The Enigma-XO is DreamLine's latest addition to the Enigma product family. The Enigma-XO combines Enigma-X's 3/8" thick glass and Enigma's large quad wheel assembly, while matching the installation requirements of the Enigma-X. The Enigma-Z has premium 3/8" thick glass. The "barn style" door has an effortless sliding operation with large dual wheel hardware assemblies on a Stainless Steel track. The Enigma-Z requires a 2 3/8” threshold on the shower base. The Enigma-Z is a completely frameless unit with no out of plumb adjustment. The Enigma Air has premium 3/8" thick glass. The Enigma Air features a stainless steel, square upper guide rail which imparts a cool, urban design. Like all doors in this series, the rollers offer effortless operation, there is no adjustment for out of plumb conditions, and it is able to be trimmed up to 4" for width adjustment. The Enigma Air requires a minimum threshold depth of 2 1/4". The Enigma Sky is a more recent addition to DreamLine's Enigma product family, and has the same installation requirements as the Enigma Air. The Enigma Sky also includes DreamLine's patented SafeClose and SafeStop elements for reliable and secure operation.

Q: What is a wall profile, and how is it adjustable?

 

A: A wall profile is a metal channel that the stationary panel slides into after the glass profile has been attached to it. The ability to make adjustments for width and out-of-plumb conditions comes from the depth of the wall profile and how far in you slide the stationary panel.

Q: What is a U-Channel profile?

 

A: The U-Channel is a metal channel that is 1” wide. The U-Channel system holds the stationary panel and only allows for 1/2" of width and out of plumb adjustment while offering a more frameless look.

Q: What if I have questions about installing my DreamLine shower door?

 

A: Our Customer Support Team is ready and waiting to help! Feel free to contact us Monday-Friday 8am-6pm EST at 888.524.3349 or email us at support@usbathstore.com.

Q: How do I know if my wall is out of plumb?

 

A: DreamLine recommends placing a 4-foot bubble level on your finished wall to check for out of plumb conditions.

Q: Do your shower doors adjust for out-of-level threshold conditions?

 

A: DreamLine shower doors have no ability to adjust for an out of level shower base or tub.

Q: How are your shower doors adjustable?

 

A: Models that have the ability to adjust for width or out of plumb will have that noted in the Product Description section of each product page. The ability to adjust for width and out of plumb is within the wall profile system or the U-Channels, depending on the model. Please read the Description field carefully for this information.

Q: What are the differences between your Neo-Angle models?

 

A: The Prism product line features 3 models with varying degrees of adjustability and installation requirements. The Prism is our pivot model that allows for 3/8" adjustment per side for out of plumb conditions and width. The Prism does not require support bars for the stationary panels. The Prism Plus is a hinged shower enclosure that allows for 1/4" adjustment on each side for out of plumb conditions. The Prism Plus comes with DreamLine's patented L-Bar support brackets for unobstructed structural support. The Prism Lux is also a hinged shower enclosure, but with no ability to adjust for out of plumb conditions. Your walls must be plumb for a successful installation of the Prism Lux. We recommend that you enlarge the photos on your computer monitor to clearly see the features and differences among the models. All of our Neo-Angle shower enclosures will work perfectly on a DreamLine SlimLine Neo-Angle shower base that is approximately 2" larger than the size of the shower enclosure.

Q: What is DreamLine's warranty coverage?

Questions and Answers
What is the thickness of the tiling flanges that are 1-3/8" high on the Dreamline Model: DLT-1136600 36 x 60 shower base?

 

The tile flanges for our SlimLine shower bases are approximately 1/4" thick, so you will need to hang 1/2" backer board just above the flanges to ensure that the backer board gets out past the tile flanges and that your finished wall material will cover the tile flanges and conceal them behind the finished wall. Please consult the shower base installation manual for further guidance on this.
How do you clean the shower pan?

 

We only recommend the use of mild liquid dish soap and warm water when cleaning our shower products.
I'm looking to replace my old shower base. How do I measure the old base? Is it wall to end of the base for L &W or do I measure the inside of the base?

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to measure the dimensions of your existing shower base with it currently installed. You will have to remove it to measure it. DreamLine shower bases are designed to install to your studs, so the dimensions for our bases are based on the assumption that you will have the area framed up to fit the base prior to installation. We recommend that you remove the existing base, then measure the available space you have so that you can select the right size DreamLine Base to fit your space.
What is the difference between single and double thresholds?

 

A single threshold base has one curb for a shower door to sit on and is designed for an alcove installation. A double threshold base has two curbs for glass to sit on and is designed for a corner installation.
Slimline 34x54 base what are the useable floor dimensions

 

The dimensions that we provide for all of our SlimLine shower bases are the dimensions to the studs because the shower base is designed to install up against studs. If you are looking at a 34x54 SlimLine shower base, that is the outer diameter "footprint" of the base prior to installation (to the studs). After you install the base, put up backer board, then finish the walls, your remaining dimensions will be less than the original dimensions.
Can a frameless glass panel be installed?

 

Yes, you can install a frameless shower door or a stationary panel on our shower bases.
Why do you not carry a 48 x 60" shower pan?

 

DreamLine makes shower bases in the sizes used most by the building and home remodeling industry.
I'm looking at the Model: DLT-1134480 shower base. I plan to install a shower enclosure with the right side being the wall and the left side glass. Does this base have a finished threshold on the left side as well as the front?

 

Model # DLT-1134480 is a 34x48 single threshold shower base and is designed to be installed for alcove shower applications only - meaning that glass can only be installed on one threshold and you will need to have finished walls on the other 3 sides of the base (left, right, and back). Installation of a glass enclosure onto a single threshold shower base can result in damage to the shower base which could lead to very serious water damage in your home. Additionally, installing an enclosure on a single threshold shower base will completely void the warranty on the DreamLine product(s). DreamLine does make a 34x48 double threshold shower base (for corner shower/enclosure application) and it is available with a left or a right drain. The model numbers for these shower bases are model # DLT-1034481 (left drain) and model # DLT-1034482 (right drain).
What type of mortar is required/ preferred?

 

Any sand-based mortar/topping mix is fine to use for the base installation. Please mix it to a thick, pudding-like consistency and spread 1" thick at the perimeter of the standing area, tapering down to 3/8" thick around the drain. You do not want to purchase anything with rocks or pebbles.
I live in a condo and I am replacing the old tub with a shower base. The drain system flange is over the concrete above 2.5". What is the best method here to raise the base? Should I use 2x4? And best drain to be used? Thx

 

These are construction questions that should be answered by a plumber or a general contractor. We are unable to give out construction advice that is beyond the scope of the installation of our products. DreamLine does not recommend raising the base. Our bases are designed to be installed directly to the floor or subfloor.
I have a 32x60 double threshold shower door assembly. Do i order a 32x60 or 34x60 shower base?

 

If your shower enclosure is a sliding enclosure and is 32" by 60", you will need a double threshold base that measures 34" by 60". If your shower enclosure has a hinged door, you will need a 62" by 34" shower base. DreamLine does not make a shower base in those sizes, however. We would like to speak with you to discuss the specifics of your shower enclosure to better help you.
What is the weight limit for the 60 x 36 pan? 300? 400?

 

When uninstalled, the base has a weight limit of 250 lbs. When installed to the required bed of mortar, DreamLine feels that the weight limit far exceeds this.
How do I clean my Dreamline shower pan?

 

DreamLine recommends using only mild liquid dish soap and warm water for cleaning your new shower base. Never use anything caustic or abrasive.
Can I get a wider base for my 36 X 48 shower with the same drain location?

 

A base of a different size will have a different drain location.
I am going to buy a sliding door. there is a requirement "minimum threshold depth". what is this?

 

The minimum threshold depth is the amount of space needed on the threshold to install the bottom components of the door. DreamLine shower bases have a threshold depth of 2-3/4". The shower door that you choose should not require more space than that, if you have a DreamLine Shower base.
How thick should the mortar bedding be when installing a slimline 32 x 48" single threshold base? I'm concerned that the pencil lines marked for leveling on the studs will not be easily lined up if the mortar is too thick, despite pushing down?

 

TThe mortar should be 1" thick around the perimeter of the standing area, tapering down to 3/8" around the drain area. DreamLine does recommend professional installation of our shower products.
I'm planning on adding a teak shower mat to fit inside the base of a slimline shower pan. are the inside walls of the pan sloped or angled?

 

The inside of the threshold is sloped. We do not recommend using a teak mat on our shower bases and doing so can damage the base.
Can you tile over your shower bases?

 

DreamLine shower bases are not designed to be tiled over. They are designed to be used as is. Tiling the base can compromise the installation and will void your warranty.
Is the single threshold base 2 3/4" in height or 3 3/4" in height? Not sure when looking at the technical drawing of the base. Thought it was 2 3/4Can you confirm as I am tight for space in regards to the completed height of the shower with Essence doors?

 

The height of the base, from the bottom of the base to the top of the threshold is 2-3/4. The 3-3/4" measurement includes the tile flange that goes against the studs. The base is installed to the sub floor on a bed of mortar.
Can this be painted?

 

DreamLine shower bases are not designed to be painted and doing so will void the warranty on the product and can compromise the product.
I understand the drain is designed for a 2" PVC. What diameter should the strainer be? The strainer my installer used has a lip that sits above the shower base and allows water to pool around the center drain.

 

The base is designed for use with a standard 4.25" strainer.
I have two questions:

1. what is the difference between Single Threshold Shower Base and double threshold shower base?

2. do you have a video to demo how to install frameless glass door on the your shower base? thanks.

 

1. A single threshold shower base is used when you have three physical walls and will have a shower door on one side. This also called an alcove installation, similar to when you would remove a bathtub and convert it to a shower. A double threshold shower base is used for a corner type of installation, when you have two physical walls. Double threshold bases accept shower enclosures, which are a shower door on one side and a return panel on the other side. Basically, this type of installation is 2 physical walls and 2 walls of glass.

2. Currently, DreamLine does not have installation videos to send out. We are in the process of producing videos, but the pandemic has slowed that process down significantly. We do recommend that our products be installed by professionals due to the size, weight and fragile nature of the product.

need a 32 x 32 shower base with a center drain for a corner shower. For this base what size enclosures do you have? the corner walls will be tile so I need 2 walls of glass shower.

 

If you have 2 walls of glass, then you need a double threshold shower base. Unfortunately, DreamLine does not make a double threshold shower base with a center drain location at this time. We have several glass shower enclosures that will work with a 32" by 32" double threshold base, such as the Unidoor Plus shower enclosure, but your base would need to have the require threshold width of 1".
Can I get a 42" single threshold shower base with a drain on the right?

 

We make our 42" single threshold bases with a center drain location. They are not available in right or left drain locations at this time.
What type of mortar do you recommend to support the pan? How much is needed?

 

We recommend any mortar that is called a sand/topping mix. You do not want anything with pebbles or rocks in it. You will mix it to a thick, puddling-like consistence and spread it 1" thick around the perimeter of the standing area tapering down to 3/8" around the drain area. Please refer to the chart or calculator on the mortar company website to determine how much you will need based on the size of the base that you choose.
Is there a weight limit for the model DLT-1136601 shower base?
