Has anyone installed these yet? It's a higher end look for about $400 in the clear 1/4" glass. They use a new sliding system without a track to clean. It looks like a $2,000+ door I saw in one of the designer showrooms.
Sorry, I don't know much about it but it does look high end. I might consider this for our remodel so thanks for posting. If I find anything out I'll be back.
I have them but haven't taken them out of the box for install yet. I'll post when I do.
I've been wondering too about these. I have a Kohler cast iron pan, and this is one that Kohler states is compatible with their pans.
I want a bypass door to save on room in my bathroom. The bypass will also allow me to reach right into the front and turn things on.
So levity doors are up. I really like the look. I didn't install them so can't say how install went. We did try to make a small adjustment to them so they would glide more smoothly and that took us 1 1/2 hrs to figure out, so I'm thinking they're not a quick install. Very light look, no heavy track on bottom, no track on sides. Ikk post pics when I figure out how
Here is a way to post pictures. See the link below which contains lots of other good info too. But a little ways down the tread, Buehl has a link to information on posting pictures.

Excellent, ill post tonight. The doors look great, we had to spend some time last night trying to get the rollers adjusted but now have them working smoothly. one point ive noticed already is that the doors will be tough to clean the glass along the track. Since they slide with the track next to them rather than at the top, there is a portion of the glass that is difficult to reach. It is the glass on the inside of each door next to the track.
Petepie, Maybe a flat spatula with a rag draped over it will get in there to clean.
My guest bath has sliding doors on the tub. They hang and don't touch the bottom track. The only place tough to clean is the overlap right on the bottom. I use a bamboo skewer and a thin micro fiber cloth.
Ok trying some pictures
They look really nice. Thanks for posting these.
I have been looking at these doors to finish my remodel. What is your experience with them? Thanks for posting
These are beautiful doors, but I would advise against buying them because they don't seem to slide very well. The rollers are adjustable and they keep slipping. I had these doors installed by professional installers. They have been back to my house several times trying to fix the slipping problem. The last time they were at my house,they commented that they have lots of problems with these doors and are going to stop recommending them to customers.
We put the Kohler doors in last fall when renovating our master bath and they have been awesome. The bathroom design was very contemporary, so wanted a sleek 'floating' shower door with minimal trim. Also, since the bathroom is TINY we wanted fully BYPASS doors which the Kohler offered. Had looked at doors from local custom glass shops, but they all had one stationary fixed door. Did have to ensure there was proper support in walls as all the weight of the doors is on the two rail brackets. It is unfortunate that the displays in local big box stores were never properly adjusted, and never worked well, as I think this door is a real bargain. Never had a problem, actually have to be careful to not slide door too quickly as they roll VERY easily.
Thanks for posting the photos. Is that a window i see in your shower? I have the same unfortunate situation. Wondering how you've waterproofed the window. is it a vinyl window?
That's a reflection of the window on the glass door and not a window in the shower.
We have doors on a rolling track like that. At first, they moved with a touch of the pinky. Then had to be adjusted several times. Now they are okay, but not as good as when new FYI.
If this is a new Kohler product, it can't be Kohler because these were purchased almost 4yrs ago. They were quite high end.
Also, FWIW, we have a window in the shower in DS's room. It is all new construction, tiled in with a bit of a slope to the sill IIRC.
I have a question: Has anybody had issues with the height of the horizontal bar the panes glide on? I am 5'8" and don't want to feel like I have to lower my head to walk in the shower. I am contemplating the 74" high doors. Thank you,
The horizontal bar is low. I'm only 5"1' so I don't have to lower my head, but someone of your height will have to. Mine are already in and I don't want to take them down, but if I had known I would have bought something else.
Thank you nrottenecker. I appreciate the feedback.
