Default 72" tall knock-down acrylic shower?

I'm trying to find a 60" x 32" x 72" knock-down acrylic shower kit and all I've been able to locate are at least 75 1/2" tall. Does anyone know of a knock-down shower kit that will come in at less than 74" tall? I don't know why this is so hard to find since the standard fiberglass one piece unit is 72" tall and most of them have windows above them. Why would everybody make remodel units that are from 4" - 6" taller? I've all but decided to move the window but if there's a unit out there that'll fit, I would like to know about it.


By the way, I've looked at A.S., Sterling, Aquaglass and Florestone with no success.

I call a 2, 3, or 4 piece tub or shower stall a "knock-down". I'm looking for an acrylic shower and surround to replace a one piece fiberglass tub/shower.

The fiberglass tub or shower comes apart so you can get it into an existing house or bath room

Because they finally realized that 72" was too short for a shower stall.

Lasco makes a 3-piece kit that is 60 x 34 x 72. That is the closest in that variety I know of.

Other than that, the two best options for a custom size is Bath Fitter (if there is one close to you) or Onyx.

I'll check Lasco again but I didn't think they made acrylic units.

Swan stone is like a corian knock off product. On a good, better, best scale... I would give a better rating. You can cut to fit if need be.Drop an acrylic base in, and wrap the surround in swan stone.
