Everything you need to know about shower screens

shower screens 2

A good cold morning shower on hot summer days can give you a boost you didn’t even know you needed. And it all sounds nice until you flood the whole bathroom while showering.

Yes, a good shower is essential, but more importantly it is good shower screen, especially if you do not want to spoil the look of the shower enclosure with a curtain that can sometimes look old-fashioned and messy.

Shower screens are a great way to keep your bathroom dry while taking a shower and to make it look good. Where to start then?

What are shower screens at all?

Many in the bathroom have glass panels that stop the flood that comes when bathing in the shower. Screens look nicer than shower curtains and are much easier to clean, which makes them our best choice when it comes to preventing flooding in the bathroom.

They are mostly fixed to the wall and are usually made of glass of different thicknesses, and can also contain additional elements to make the alignment safer.

What kind of shower screens are there?

A single panel is usually made using a single glass pane and can be moved using a hinge. They are usually the most common choice, because they provide a clean design that fits into any bathroom.

The double panel has hinges in the middle of the screen which means they can be opened in several different ways. They can work in a similar way as a shower door, which is great if you lack space or want extra splash protection. Double shower screens are handy if you have a longer shower stall.

Folding shower screens can be pushed and folded into a narrow shape when not in use. These screens allow easier access to the bathtub and are very practical for bathing children. They are also great for smaller bathrooms where you don’t want fixed glass to enter your space.

How are they measured?

The size of the screen depends on the size of the tub and the power of the shower. They are usually measured in millimeters and different widths and heights are available which generally range between 1400 – 1500 mm. The thickness of the shower screen usually ranges from 3 mm to 8 mm. Thicker screens look more luxurious, but they are also much heavier.

How are shower screens set up?

Setting up a shower screen is easier than many people think, but if you are worried, feel free to seek professional help. Although the do-it-yourself principle can save you both time and money, we’re not sure if it’s worth damaging your brand new screen if you’re not skilled enough in these jobs.

How are screens maintained?

Although they don’t need much maintenance, shower screens in the bathtub must be cleaned regularly to prevent the appearance of hard limescale deposits. The best way to prevent this is to quickly wipe the screen after each use of the blunt cab. It may seem excessive to clean the screen after each use, but regular wiping will make your bathroom always look neat.

How safe are shower screens for families with small children?

They are very safe! When comparing the screen with shower which contains a curtain, a high-quality screen is made of reinforced safety glass. The glass is also slightly curved, thus creating a smooth edge, and there is no reason for fear and worry.
