Anybody have one of these new shower setups from Maax?


Looking ahead to a potential master bath remodel in my house, and wondering how these things stack up to other stuff is out there.

I've only installed one Maax shower unit, but I was not impressed with the quality of it. Their doors are OK, but the shower itself was really flimsy. Where others (like Sterling, Aquaglass etc) mold in blocks and backers to make the walls more stiff and resist flexing, Maax expects the installer to strategically place wood blocks on the studs behind the fiberglass to keep it from flexing if someone leans against it. (and if there's no stud in the exact location where they're telling you a block should be, then you have to bridge between studs to support the blocks that support the unit!)

We've been getting some new remodel tub/showers at work from maax and they actually go together real nicely with solid pins (crazy accurate on their holes too) as opposed to having bolt and nut. Makes it easier to install without having the entire bathroom gutted. They seem to be pretty solid.

The ones i'm looking at are the bases with the glass surround kits. Haven't touched one of these yet.

The one I did was 4 or 5 years ago, so they may be completely different by now.
