Keystone Maax Shower Doors


Have installed a keystone maax frameless door kit and while it looks good I have problems of water getting out at the bottom of the door. Does anyone know of any adjustments that can be made to lower the door down so as to close the gap under it?

Re: Keystone Maax Shower Doors


Although I haven't installed the door you are talking about, I noticed you are from lions head...I grew up and started my first business in Owen Sound, so, just thought I'd say hello! As for your door, I stopped using MAAX products years ago...
They bought out manhattan doors about a decade ago and it seemed after the quality went out the window. Every door I would order was either damaged or had missing parts...
You could try their customer service...hopefully it's improved!

Just a thought...how thick is the glass?
If it is 3/8, you may be able to get a new seal from someone that does custom frameless

It's good to hear there are local people on here. Fr a while I was thinking it was only an American site.

As for the door, yes I have started to notice the same thing these days. Hopefully I can just buy a deeper flange and that will fix this issue. It really is too bad that they didn't think about this when they made the doors. They have all sorts of adjustment left an right but nothing for the up and down.

Thanks again.

I have installed a ton of shower doors. If you can get a picture I'm certain I can help. If this is a true frameless, you can just put a sweep on the bottom (clear polycarbonate) but if the curb is not tilted in, it will still leak.
