There are several different types of bath screens, and it’s important that you choose the right one. The first type is a full bath enclosure. This is similar to a typical sliding shower door; except it goes around your entire bathtub. They are easily cleaned and block water from escaping better than a shower curtain. You should get this type of screen if you have flooring that can’t get wet or a bathtub that is no enclosed by walls on three sides.
Shower enclosures and bath screens now come in such a wide variety of shapes and sizes, no longer are you left with a choice of two or three styles and just the one colour. The act of showering has now evolved into not just personal hygiene but into something can be considered stress relieving, sensual and invigorating. This drive has forced the showering market to evolve with consumer needs and requirements driving this change.
Everyone likes to save a bit of cash, especially in this economic climate, so why call out a tradesman to fit your brand new bath screen. Exactly – why spend money on something you can do yourself, plus you might actually enjoy it and get a great sense of satisfaction once you have completed it (perhaps wishful thinking). Bath screens more often than not do not fill the entire run of the bath, instead they shield off just the part where the shower is, allowing a little extra to stop the spray going all over the floor. Most doors come with a hinge to allow for a pivot operation to help with cleaning and also for added safety if your children use the bath for example.
Therefore showers are something that you can choose as an accessory to decorate the bathroom as well apart from the usual use. Then the showers have evolved to become sources of steam baths. There are thermostat features included in the hot and cold showers which have been taken to another level and these thermostats can now be used to convert water into steam. With a switch, you can have sauna bath coming out of your showers. Having identified these benefits only is when you should opt for the showers of your choice. There is a huge variety available in showers for you to choose from and meet your needs and satisfy your requirements.
A second and different style of bath screen is the sliding option. This is a variation of the traditional fixed glass screen, but actually has a second glass screen that slides further along the bath and clicks into place magnetically. This sliding screen allows you to almost double the length of a normal screen of say 800mm to over a meter along the bath. This sliding bath screen is ideal where power showers or body jets are being used as it extends the protective area further along the bath and stops spray from escaping the shower area.
