Few of us have the luxury of having enough space to accommodate both a bath and a shower screen. Therefore, having a bath with a shower screen mounted is the most common solution. In the last few years, shower curtains got replaced by shower screens. The reason for this is their appealing look, functionality and the fact that they are quite easy to clean. They come in many shapes, sizes and styles, therefore once you get a hold of the most important basics, it will be easy to spot the right one for you on a shower screen sale.
Shower screens include doors that are mostly made from one or two platforms that close the shower area. A good shower screen should have at least two water outlets on the profile so that the water accumulated inside the profile can go back to the shower area, instead of outside. There are many different types of shower screens, but these one are the most common and popular to use:
Single bath screen
It features a classic design, usually goes with an aluminium profile that can swing 120 or 180 degrees depending on its location. One of the biggest pros of this shower screen is that it very easy to clean and it can swing more than the other types of screens.
Two-part shower screen
If you are looking for more coverage, you should consider this type of shower screen. It usually comes with the ability to cover around 150 cm and features easily accessible screen door that allows you easy access in the shower area. One of the biggest benefits of this shower is having fix panel where you can mount extra base that prevents getting hit from the swing door.
If you want the minimalist look you can go for the frameless shower screen. What makes this screen great is the fact that all the weight is supported by two brackets on the wall without any aluminium profiles holding it. This renders it easy on the eye and utterly simple.
When visiting a shower screen sale, make sure that you check for the Australian safety standard HB 125. This means that should the shower screen break it will smash into tiny pieces which are less likely to cause an injury. Choosing glass that is 6 mm or 8 mm thick should also be one of the priorities to look for.
