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.
The first step is to mount the wall channel into the wall, this part is crucial and must not be rushed. Take due care to get the channel flush with the wall and use a spirit level to check both vertical and horizontal levels. Apply some silicone sealant behind the channel to create a seal, do not use too much sealant as it will splay out and become unsightly. If some does push out of the joint, wipe it off with a damp cloth. Screw the channel to the wall using the correct size of screw and plug. Once firmly fixed to the wall offer up the door and then affix securely into the channel. If you correctly leveled the channel in the previous step then your door should now pivot correctly and form a seal along the edge of the bath. Most bath screens come with adjustment screws to allow for any small anomalies.
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.
Bath screens are made to stop water from getting on the floor when someone in the tub is bathing or showering. Water is often splashed from the tub when these activities are taking place and the water creates a mess and a hazard. You are much more likely to slip and fall if the floor is wet than you would when the floor is dry. If the floor gets wet repeatedly then it can begin to rot away because of the moisture. You can also get a mold and mildew problem if the surface of the floor is continuously gotten wet and does not dry out for long periods of time. Bath screens can stop all of these things from happening.
