For many people, installing a stand alone shower enclosure is simply not possible. Bathroom space can limit your choice to either a shower or a bath, but not both together. In this situation most families will opt for a bath over a shower enclosure as small children and babies make a shower a non starter.
Sail bath water deflectors are named as such because they resemble the sail of a ship or tall boat, that said it is not the triangle shape you may be thinking of but more a gentle rectangle with one corner rounded. Think gently billowing in the breeze. Sail bath deflectors can either be hinged of fixed each having its own benefits. A hinged screen can easily be swung away from the bath to allow for easy cleaning along the out edge of the bath tub. They do however lend the opportunity for young children to swing on the door itself and potentially slam it, thus smashing the screen itself. Whilst all deflectors are made of safety glass which shatters much like a car windscreen it is still highly undesirable.
If a big bulky frame isn’t your thing, you should look at frameless over-bath screens. These screens are for baths that are surrounded on three sides. They cover the half of open side that the shower is on. They’re more visually appealing than traditional bath screens because they don’t have big metal frames. The problem I with these screens is that water can splash around the outside or through spaces between the screen and the tub. These screens are best for bathrooms with tile or flooring that won’t get water damaged. Frameless screens are available fixed, or with a hinge so they can open and close.
The previous types of screens generally work best in larger bathrooms because they can take up a lot of space and seem too big in a small area. For smaller bathrooms, you should consider a folding multi-panel screen. These can be pushed up and stored in a small area by your tub, or pulled out to cover the same space as a frameless screen. This way they only take up space when you’re using them.
