Question Pivot door for narrow stall shower?

I'd like to install a pivot door for my stall-type shower. From what I've researched, my shower's opening is smaller than most at 23.5"w x 77"h; other stall showers appear to be mostly 36" to 48" wide.

Does the narrow 23.5" width negate the possibility of installing a pivot door? Does anyone happen to know of a door that would fit at that width?

You will probably have to have a door custom made if you can't find a stock one that will fit. Many standard ones have some adjustment but I've never seen one that narrow. As for the pivot I don't think you have room but if you try it would probably have to be heavy glass so you don't loose even more room to a door frame.

I actually just came across this series of pivot doors at HD that might do the trick.

Foremost Tides 23 in. to 25 in. x 65 in. Framed Pivot Shower Door in Silver with Obscure Glass-TDSW2565-OB-SV - The Home Depot

I've not done any heavy research into whether they're worthwhile or not, but it's a start.

Keeping in mind I'm not expert, what special tools would one need to drill into the vertical tiling (to secure the vertical sections of the frame) as well as a small piece of what appears to be marble (to secure the horizontal floor frame)? Are special drill bits needed to bite through those areas?

You need masonry or glass bit and a corded drill will be better than a battery drill.
