The QuadLux shower enclosure is a frameless design intended to be installed in a corner against finished walls. It is reversible, and thus can be installed in left or right configurations. The QuadLux collection, although sleek with a look of custom glass, requires very accurate preparation and measurements. Careful attention needs to be paid to details that can easily be overlooked, causing costly mistakes and project delays. The enclosure demands a perfect plumb of both walls and a perfect square with the base because the enclosure’s glass panels are mounted directly on finished walls without a frame or wall profiles that would give some room for adjustments. The enclosure can be installed on a custom-made tile floor pan or on a corresponding DreamLine white acrylic shower base.
The QuadLux shower enclosures are crafted from 3/8” thick, clear tempered glass. They consist, on a narrower side, of a stationary panel, and of a swinging door with a stationary panel on the other side of the enclosure. The swinging door is sealed against the side panel with a magnetic strip running the full length of the door’s edge. The stationary panels are secured to the walls with four small brackets (two per panel). It needs to be noted that the stationary panels are held firmly in position with arm brackets attached to the very top of them and to adjacent walls. The visible metal hardware comes in two finishes: polished chrome and brushed nickel.
The QuadLux series has two models:
- SHEN-1332460-01 chrome hardware (SHEN-1332460-04 brushed nickel hardware). This enclosure is 30 7/8” x 44 7/8” wide and 72 7/8” tall. The wider wall consists of a stationary panel, 20 3/8” wide, and a swinging door, 23 5/8” wide. The enclosure can be installed on a DreamLine Quad base: DLT-1034481-00 with a left hand drain or DLT-1034482-00 with a right hand drain.
- SHEN-1334340-01 chrome hardware (SHEN-1334340-04 brushed nickel hardware). This enclosure is square - 33 3/4” x 33 3/4” wide and 72 7/8” tall. The stationary panel by the swinging door is 9 1/8” wide, and the door itself is 23 5/8” wide. The enclosure can be installed on a DreamLine Quad base: DLT-1036360-00 with a drain located in a corner.
It needs to be noted that the shower bases are slightly over three inches wider and longer than the enclosures. The reason is that the base is attached directly to studs on two sides (in other words, behind the finished wall), and the glass panels with the door are installed in the middle of the threshold.
