          This shower slide assembly comes in nine (9) pieces which fit nicely together and can be mounted with either screws or silicone adhesive tape which are included. The soap dish was little difficult to slide onto the bar but when properly aligned, it slid on with some effort. The shower head slide has a knob for adjusting. I believe some parts are plated plastic or very thin metal, but should last for some time. Instructions were easy to follow and understand.
          This would be a great solution for a remodel or retrofit or an addition to any shower. It is reasonably prices and has a lifetime limited warranty.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Modern, Stylish

          I was able to install the door by myself but I would still recommend two people for added stability. I would recommend securing the door to the knob side of the frame with duct tape or strong masking tape to maintain stability of the entire unit. The unique 7 bracket installation kit eliminates the need for shims and there is no need for nailing through the jams. My door aligned perfectly when I placed it into the prepared opening.
          The door (Slab) is solid and consists of layered Medium Density Fiber and High Density Fiber material surrounded by solid pine frame areas. It is factory coated with a smooth painted surface. The jambs are made from finger jointed pine and the casings are HDF and both are coated with a layer of vinyl. The heavy duty hinges are polished chrome and have ball bearings which should prevent any squeaking.
          Although a bit more expensive than the average pre-hung door, the additional cost is well worth the additional quality features. Read Less

          Answer: 
          Yes. Recommend shower arm from 9" to 15" depending on the model. The 12" diameter shower head has a recommended 15" arm but should work with a 9".
          I would suggest a ceiling mounted support for the longer arm.

          Answer: 
          Actual width of 32 inch door kit is 33.8 and needs a minimum width 34.5 rough in according to instructions. Tolerance is 0.34 which would make for a 34.15 minimum rough in.
          The door (slab) is 31.5
          You may have to use a 30 inch door which requires minimum width of 32.5 inch
