Thank you for your inquiry. The 706009 will fit an opening of 56 5/8"-59". Yes you can use this door for your 56.5" opening because it is just slightly less than the minimum. You would have to cut down the top & bottom track.

In the question above this one, it was mentioned that the door width of this unit is 59-5/8 in. instead of the 60-1/4 in. listed in the main description. Our shower base is 32 x 60. Will these doors fit that space or will there be a 1/8 in. gap? Thanks in advance for any information you can give me to clear this up.

Question

Are there any intracies with installing with one of the vertical walls having a pocket door? Is there optional thicker glass?

Asked by
Pizza
St. Louis, MO
about Levity 60-1/4 in. x 74 in. Frameless Bypass Shower Door with Handle in Nickel on
December 1, 2013
The product description states "frameless"; however, the pictures appear to show framing at the top as well as vertical framing on each wall. I need clarification as one of my walls includes a pocket door which does not have sufficient support (not 2x4) to hold all the weight of glass doors. So is there vertical framing and if so, does it bear the majority of the weight? Is there an option for the thicker more sturdy glass?

January 13, 2014
Although they say one is 59 5/8 " X 74 and the other is 60 1/4 " x 74 - the specs on the web page for both of them say the dimensions are the same. I am confused. The sku is the same - and all the reviews are for the one that says it is 60 1/4 ". Can you help please. My contractor is at the house now trying to build the wall out to meet the specifications of the door. We haven't picked up the door yet - but he is trying to get the wall done and we need to make sure of the measurements.

Thank you

We are pretty much gutting our bathroom and can work some of the dimensions to our specific wants. I was going to order the 70" tall Levity, but am now considering the 74" so that someone taller than
5'!0" does not have to duck to enter the shower. With the 74" door, I would still have at least 9" between the top of the door and the ceiling. Is this adequate to circulate the air and prevent mold? Also, how much difference does it make to have the 3/8" thick glass, versus the 1/4"?
