Shower Door Replacement

My 2000 Excella has the rigid plastic accordion shower door that seems to have been in use for many earlier years. Ours still ďworksĒ, i.e., it keeps water inside the shower enclosure, and itís still in good condition, but itís always been a bit of an irritant. Iíve long wanted to replace it, but Iíve never found a replacement product that sufficiently solved the problem to justify the cost and effort. The main problem with the rigid plastic accordion shower door is the amount of room it consumes in the ďopenĒ position, leaving a relatively small opening for entry and exit into the shower enclosure. Iím inclined to replace it with a simple shower curtain, one the will enable the full opening into the shower enclosure. Iíve seen older threads on this topic, but didnít actually see their final solutions, if any.

Iíve been thinking of installing a ceiling-mounted track across the opening, then hanging a conventional shower curtain from the track. The track mechanism on the website below is what Iíve been thinking about, but Iíve hesitated since Iím unsure whether there is a solid material overhead on which to mount. I doubt the thin fiberglass wall (ceiling) of the shower enclosure will stand up to the opening and closing of the shower curtain.

Anyone know of a good solution? Can the track shown on this link be successfully mounted to a suitable mount on the enclosure ceiling?

Well it's hard to tell how much surface area there is on the brackets that hold the rail from the web site. I think that I would propably be inclined to use a water proof glue than any type of screws. Just a thought
