Can I put a shower door on a fiberglass tub/shower combo?

I have a tub/shower fiberglass unit by lasco - I am wondering if I will be able to put a tub door on it instead of the curtain... the thing is, the corners where tub and shower wall meet are a little rounded and there is a seam where the shower wall attaches to the tubwall.

You could install a sliding door that hangs from a track, but a hinged glass door isn't an option on a fiberglass tub enclosure. The fiberglass unit isn't strong enough to support the kind of weight that is involved in a hinged glass door.

The rounded corners will be an issue as the vertical and horizontal pieces need to be sealed against the surface to prevent leaks. You might be looking into a custom frame that will match your profile.
