Glass Shower Screens, Bespoke Made to Your Requirements
Frameless glass shower screens can look stunning, and can often transform a bathroom or wetroom once installed, being both functional and elegant. However getting the size you want can be a challenge at times, which is why all our glass screens are custom made to the exact size you need.
So You Require a Glass Shower Screen, Where Do You Begin?
Always take time to measure the opening size you’re working with, many floors and walls run out of plumb, the optimum time to measure is once all the flooring, tray, and tiling is in and finished, this way you know exactly what you’re dealing with. Take your time, and always double check.

The majority of shower glass U Channel (the aluminium trim used to secure the glass) has an 8mm, 10mm and 12mm variant. The colour finishes vary for each, with 10mm U Channel having the largest range of available finishes on offer.
What Secures a Glass Shower Screen in Place?
If using shower glass U Channel to install, we advise reducing the glass size by approx -6mm from the dimensions that the U Channel will be secured (this is most commonly the wall and floor). As an example, if you want a panel which is 2000mm in height and 600mm in width, then the glass size to order would be 1994mm x 594mm, this reduction enables work able tolerances in most instances when it comes to installation of the glass shower panel. U Channel can be recessed into the tiles at the point of construction if required, but the simplest approach is to surface mount the U Channel on the wall and floor. We advocate fixing to the floor, as it aids in securing your glass shower screen. For wider shower panels, a support arm is often used, glass with a width of approx 700mm and over may need a support bar to aid in keeping it as stable as possible, the shower support bars we supply can all be retro fitted.
