German term or phrase: Eckeinsteig
The context is part of a description of a shower cubicle - 'Eckeinsteig, 2-tlg. silber, Kunstglass'
English translation:Corner entry
Explanation:
It sounds like corner entry. There are several sites boasting information on corner entry showers. One such site is listed below (and has a picture). The second URL describes what is meant by corner entry, which basically refers to a shower stall set in the corner of a bathroom with two of the sides being defined by the bathroom's walls and the other two being glass or whatever the material. The two glass sides consist of two panels each, one which slides and one which stays in place. To enter the shower comfortably, one pushes the two sliding panels (which meet at the corner) away from each other.
