Low level entry systems, referred to as wet room or walk in showers are now very popular, making use of the latest in sealant technologies and manufacturer enhancements. Showers are being combined with baths to make the very popular shower bath which is a fixed head over the bath with the water being deflected back into the bath with either a fixed panel screen or a simple shower curtain (both have their distinct advantages and disadvantages).
Standard sizes for bath screens are either 12 or 24 inches wide, and 50 to 60 inches high. If you do your own design, be sure to take accurate measurements to determine exactly what size will be most suitable. After determining the screen requirements, there are the other parts needed, such as the hinges, door handles, and panel attachments. Shower curtains, although still very popular are being replaced by screens when bathrooms are re-modelled. It is easy to see why, as the screens are more versatile, and offer more styling opportunities.

But the shower curtain nightmare doesn’t end with this physical attraction. For some strange reason, kittens and young cats like to play in the shower and one of the items that they like to pounce and shred is the shower curtain! Thicker shower curtains seem to last through several of these playful fights, but it’s really just a matter of time before your cat turns your shower curtains into ragged Venetian blinds. Bath screens, as you can guess, can withstand even the most aggressive cat, and they aren’t inclined to gravitate toward you while you’re covered in suds! Made of sturdy, glass or glass-like material (such as plexiglass for example), bath screens come in a variety of styles and sizes while adding a touch of beauty.
Looking for a new and exciting way to spice up the bathroom? Why not have a stylish bath screen installed? Unlike shower curtains, bath screens transform the everyday ho-hum bath and shower into an high-tech and open-spaced experience. Anyone who owns shower curtains can certainly attest to their inconvenience. In fact, there’s almost nothing more awkward. Sure, they do their job in keeping water inside the shower, but they have the uncanny ability to gravitate toward the pour soul who’s taking a shower, and literally stick to the very skin that’s being washed! It’s strange but true. Shower curtains – especially the thinner ones – can be attracted to the heat source generated within the bath and seemingly attack whoever is inside. As funny as that may seem – it’s no joke when the shower curtain isn’t as clean as it should be. No one wants to fight with a dirty shower curtain while trying to get clean.
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.
