How to Hang Bathtub Shower Doors
If you are tired of collecting molds at the bottom of the bath shower curtain and white mineral stripes that pollute the rest, you may find that the sliding doors have improved significantly. These doors are made of tempered glass and are easy to keep clean. After each shower, it only needs a pass with a scraper.No problem installing one.
You can do it yourself with some woodworking tools. However, what you need to note is that tempered glass is sensitive to impact and may break unexpectedly. Measure the opening size of the bathtub from the wall to the wall with a tape measure and purchase the appropriate bypass sliding door kit. You can use a kit with a smaller opening than expected, but you can't use a kit with a larger opening. Use masking tape to temporarily fix the wall jambs in the set on the relative wall of the shell and measure the distance between them. Cut the bottom track into this length with a hacksaw. Set the bottom track in the appropriate position on the edge of the bathtub and adjust it so that its edge stays at an even distance along the entire length from the outside of the bathtub. Draw a line along the outer edge of the bottom track with a pencil and remove it. Lay a loop of silicone caulking along the two edges on the lower side of the track. Put the track back on the tub and press it to make sure the caulking is sealed.
Wait 12 hours for the cauldron to be in place. Remove the tape from the door frame on one of the walls and use the level to vertical the pieces. The bottom should be in contact with the bathtub. Drive the screw through each hole and fix the jamb on the wall post. The head of the screw should be covered with rubber plugs to protect the door. Install another jamb in the same way. You need to install wall anchors if the walls are tiled. Install the anchor by marking the hole with a pencil, removing the jamb and drilling holes on each mark with a masonry bit. Tap a tapered plastic anchor in each hole with a hammer, replace jamb and screw it to the anchor. Measure the distance between the top outside of jambs--Should be the same distance as the wall--And cut the top track to this measurement. Put it on jambs and pull it down; It should be in place suddenly. Follow the instructions included with the kit to install runners, handles and other hardware on the door. Install the door from outside the bathtub. Hang the door inside first. Tilt the bottom to you, hang the hanger on the track further away from you, and let the door swing gently to the vertical position. Install the outer door in the same way.
