Is the a standard height for installing a shower rail (the vertical bar that you can slide the shower head up and down - not a hand rail)?

Most of the ones I see look very high up, often with the top of the rail higher than the shower glass.

Consider whether you are going to install a showerdome for moisture control. If there is a possibility, don’t have the top fitting above the level of the glass.

I am 5 feet and 10 inch.
