common frameless shower door height?

janesylviaMay 1, 2013

Tiles surrounding my stall shower go all the way to the ceiling. What height should I pick for the shower door?

Thank you very much.

I just measured mine, the glass is 78" high, the base would add another few inches (not made yet), glass is leaning against wall, haven't installed it. I think the main thing is that it is at least as high as your showerhead if you have one on the wall and not overhead.

Thank you very much, raehelen. The shower head is 72.5" high from the shower step. So in my case maybe 75"-high glass would be enough, letting me squeegee a little less space :-).

Generally the average height is anywhere between 72" and 76", but also varies depending on the shower head height.

My shower door company told me that the doors come standard in 72", 76", and 80" height. Of course, they could custom make a door at any size, but my cost would be less if I went with one of these sizes. This is just the height of the door not including the curb.

Millworkman and TSG1104, thank you very much for your information, very helpful. I'll ask what standard height doors they carry and go between 72" and 76".
