The Folding Bath Screen does just that – it folds away against the bathroom wall concertina style when it is not in use. These screens are usually made up of 4 or 5 individual panels, connected with pivot hinges that ’click’ into place magnetically when opened along the edge of the bath. A small plastic seal at the bottom diverts water back into the bath. When the showering is complete, you simply fold each panel back against itself and store neatly against the supporting wall.
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.
If you plan to refurbish your bathroom, consider a lot of room for showers. The showers are an integral part of any bathroom but given the benefits, one can have them as the highlight of the bathroom. Showers are available in all shapes and forms that would help you enhance the beauty of the bathroom by many folds. First of all let us assess the benefits of having showers installed in your bathroom. The showers these days do not just act as an accessory for bathing. They have evolved and with the various uses of water being identified the showers have been designed to meet the demands and needs of all the customers. But before we take a look into the how to choose showers, let us first try and understand what all benefits are there of showers. It is said that cold water showers are beneficial to health and especially after a physically demanding time when all the muscles of the body are strained and tight, the cold water showers are the most effective way to help them relax.
Bath Screens now come in different styles and formations. The choice that you make may depend on your bath and budget. Fixed screens that are made of a single sheet are easy to use and install. The disadvantage is that they are fixed and cannot move, and you will have to manoeuvre your way around them. If your bathroom has enough space, you can put them on pivots, so they can swing open for easier access to the shower. Folding bath screens are used where space is at a premium. Assembled with individual panels, they can be installed to fold either vertically or horizontally to conserve space, and opened when needed. The color and finish of the frames can be chosen to match the decor of your bathroom.
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.
