Framless Shower Door with NO Studs


Hi, I've recently neared completion of a bathroom remodel. I took it down to the studs and put it back together, however, I didn't plan well enough for the shower door. I was hoping for a frameless shower door but did not put studs behind the tile.

I had the plumber set the shower pan. I put up hardibacker, Redgard, and tile. I'm wondering if there are anchors strong enough to hold a frameless glass door? The opening is 34 3/8" wide.

The door I'm looking at is OVE Decore Shelby on Lowes.com for $500.

Am I s*** out of luck and have to go with a framed door?

Re: Framless Shower Door with NO Studs


Any way of going in from the other side of the wall and adding a stud and/or some blocking? Got a pic or two?

No. It is an exterior wall. I have white subway tile (3x6) on the shower wall and wood siding on the other side.

You might want to check with a local shop that specializes in glass and custom shower doors and see what they recommend for fasteners. They may have something that will work.
