Pros: Durable, Easy to install, Looks good, Value for money, Well Made
I have purchased a number of items from Plumbworld over the years and always been very satisfied. this sliding shower door fitted perfectly and I though amazing value for money..however you do need to tackle your carrier on handling your goods, as with the previous review the outer boxing was damaged but thank goodness the contents were intact. I would have been pretty upset if I had to return damaged items.
I must add that I did have the need a couple of years ago to contact Plumbworld with an installation question and also a return/exchange of unwanted goods. All was handled professionally and with the greatest courtesy...A company I can thoroughly recommend.
Pros: Price, parts accurately made.
Cons: Plated plastic parts, unusable screws.
This sliding door range is excellent value for the money. Initial impressions were poor - the packaging was woefully inadequate and I opened the (damaged) box in the presence of the (grumpy) delivery driver, both of us fully expecting to find a pile of broken glass but, more by luck than judgement, everything was intact! Thereafter the assembly instructions are pretty poor - ambiguous text and unclear diagrams - but the components are logical and should present no problems for the professional fitter or experienced DIYer. There is clear evidence as to why this is so cheap - for example some screws were malformed with no recess in the heads meaning you have to find some to replace them, also many parts are plated plastic and the finish seems unlikely to last, particularly in hard water areas. That said the main parts are accurately made and the glass is a reasonable thickness for a product at this level. Assembly is straightforward and fitting (a two-person job due to weight of glass) is really simple (Tip - make sure to locate the magnetic strip in the frame the correct way round- it was fitted backwards preventing the door from staying closed, but it is easy to slide it out and reverse it). The rollers are quite exposed in the shower area and would benefit from regular spraying with silicon (don't use oil/grease on nylon rollers) to prevent sticking and to stop the springs from rusting. Otherwise this is a good value product that would suit a budget renovation or rental property -just don't expect the quality of the more expensive brands.
