Various types and styles of shower screens

You can choose to install a frameless, semi-frameless, or framed shower screen.

The shower door of a semi-frameless shower screen has no frame around it, and the frame only surrounds the glass panels of the screen.

On the contrary, a fully framed shower enclosure comes with a frame surrounding the shower door, the glass panels, and the adjoining parts of the glass screen.

Moreover, most enclosures come with acrylic shower trays on which the shower enclosure rests.

Whether you select a frameless, semi-framed, or fully framed shower screen, you have the option to choose among different styles, including the L corner screen, fixed panel, diamond-shaped screen, wall-to-wall glass screen and others.

Your budget, style, personal preferences and the size of your bathroom are some factors that will influence your choice selection. For example, if you have a small bathroom, you will consider choosing the L corner shower screen over other styles.

Moreover, you can choose a sliding shower door, a hinged door, a doorless walk-in shower or other types of shower doors.

The corner shower installation instructions

  • Mount the metal wall and floor brackets in place and then use a spirit level to ensure everything is straight and perfectly level.
  • Mark the holes on the metal brackets and drill the pilot holes in the wall.
  • Next, attach the hinged door to the frame to secure the screen.
  • Screw the panels to the wall using a screwdriver and then fit the handle to the shower door
  • From the outside, apply Silicone sealant to the edges of your shower enclosure to make the screen waterproof.
  • Leave for 24 hours for the Silicone sealant to dry.

Safety instructions for shower screen glaziers

Professional licensed glaziers that will install your shower screen must abide by the following safety instructions:
