Poor quality parts for a high end door
For a thousand dollar door I would expect everything to be high end, but they use several plastic pieces that do not function very well, and the glass door itself is warped so I'll have to call the company to get it replaced. There is a thin chrome rail that you put on the floor for the glass to sit on and two thin plastic pieces that are supposed to attache to the rail to keep the glass from sliding off. These plastic pieces would not attach and so the glass kept sliding off onto the tile. They tell you to attach them to the rail after they already told you to use silicone to attach the rail to the tile. By the time I got to the part to attach these pieces the silicone was almost dry making it hard to raise the rail to get the pieces under. I think the silicone also made it so I couldn't attach these pieces to the rail.
The wall anchors they provide incase for when you have to put screws where there is now 2x4 behind the wall.The instructions say to use a 1/4" bit for ceramic tile to drill a hole, but the anchors will not fit and if you try tap them in they just bend and break.
Finally, there is a plastic piece that attaches to the bottom of the door to keep water from going under. When you open and close the door however, this piece catches against the chrome rail and it pulls the plastic piece off.
I don't think they actually tested their products and will not buy this brand again.
