How to Replace Sliding Glass Doors with Shower Curtains

A shower curtain is a perfect replacement for sliding glass doors, as it serves as a boundary between the wet shower area and the dry shower in your bathroom. The shower curtain is easy to operate, replace, and maintain. 

How to replace sliding glass doors with shower curtains is a fairly simple task, requiring only a basic understanding of the process. Using the following tools and steps, you can effortlessly remove the sliding glass door and install the shower curtain.

Step 1 - Remove the Door Panel and Frame

Firstly, remove the glass door from the panel, and lift it up and out of the elevated track. Then place it safely aside to avoid any unnecessary accidents or damage to the glass. Then, use an electric screwdriver to loosen the screws that keep the frame intact.

When doing it, pay special attention to the surrounding tiles; if the wrong pressure is applied, the tiles can easily break. Finally, use a universal knife to cut off the glue or sealant around the frame. Now, the frame can easily come off.

Step 2 - Clean the Shower Door

Dry the area where the shelf is located with a towel and use a hard bristle brush to wipe away any residue. After there is no waste in the area, mix a pipe repair compound and use a putty knife to fill any possible holes or cracks before removing them. It should be noted that the compound must be completely dried for 12-13 hours, and it is not advisable to use a bathtub before the compound is completely dried.

Please note that tile grouting should not be used to fill gaps in fiberglass, and recommended repair compounds should be used to provide a waterproof and permanent solution to any remaining screw holes.

Step 3 - Install the Tie Rod

A typical installation for measuring tension bars is a ceiling shower that is approximately 3-4 inches long. However, a more specific location is the height, at which the suspended shower curtain does not touch the ground, but is lower than the top edge of the bathtub, depending on the size of your bathroom.

After determining the height, place the bracket on both sides of the shower to secure the rod. These brackets will come with the poles when you buy from the store. Pull the shower curtain over the pole. Lift the rod to that height, press one side of the rod against the wall, and slide the other side (with a cap) into place. Adjust the lever until it is tight enough to effectively support the shower curtain.

Step 4- Hang the Shower Curtain

They should be placed on the shower curtain ring when installing shower curtains. Be careful, hang the curtain, and then hang the rod.
