How high should I install my hinged shower door? How high should I install my hinged shower door?
As you install a hinged shower door with a header, pay particular attention to the height you're installing your side jambs. If they are installed too low, the header could be low enough that a tall person entering the shower may hit his head on the header. Before drilling screw holes for your side jambs, decide on the height you want your header, then mark jamb screw holes accordingly. Install the side jambs so that the bottom edge of the header will be at least 72 inches up from the floor. This will accommodate anyone who is as tall as 6 feet.
