Bath Shower Screen

If you have installed an over bath shower you will need to fit some form of barrier to keep the shower spray from escaping onto the floor.

Installing a bath shower screen is a very popular method although you could fit a shower curtain and curtain rail or the brand new Out-A-Sight as an alternative

There are several types of bath shower screens available depending on the type of bath you have and how large you want the screen to be :

  • arched single screen
  • double folding screen
  • multiple folding screen
  • corner bath shower screen

The arched shower screen is attached to the wall via a hinged bracket. This enables the shower screen to pivot outward for access to the taps and for cleaning. They are cheap and relatively unobtrusive but have several shortcomings: they are unsuitable for use with power showers; they only shield one third of the bath length from splashing; they can make a bathroom feel smaller.

Double shower screens are slightly more expensive, and shield the bath for two thirds of its length, but the other problems still apply. Also, as they open out, away from the bath, it is vital that there are no protrusions, such as wash hand basins, that could cause damage or prevent it from opening fully. If this is the case then a multi-part folding bath shower screen should be selected, as they "concertina" and fold flat against the wall.

Corner bath screens are similar to multi-screens but are designed to enable the curve of a corner bath to be followed.
