Many bathrooms simply don’t have enough space for a separate shower enclosure and a bath, this is when an over the bath showering solution may become the only option. Research shows that 65% of showering within the UK is done over the bath. With such a massive market to cater for, over the bath showering solutions need to meet the same standards as the modern shower enclosure.
Combi-boilers and higher pressure plumbing systems are routinely creating a demand for power shower approved bath screens, so an indulgent showering experience which doesn’t compromise on style or performance, can still be achieved over the bath. The most popular bath screens are those that are power shower approved, as this ensures the homeowner can still install a powerful shower head and benefit from a similar showering experience to those showering in an enclosure. Over bath showering is becoming more and more sophisticated and now offers a wide range of leak free solutions which are approved for use with power showers.
The sealing systems for bath screens to ensure increased water integrity vary depending on the style of bath screen you are installing. These vary between simple clear vertical and horizontal seals, to metal strips which are installed along the bath, through to screens which feature one fixed panel at the tap end, which is sealed to the bath to prevent leaking from this common weak spot.
Inward and outward folding bath screens are the perfect solution for when space is limited. Outward opening bath screens include one fixed panel and one outward opening panel that cleverly stops at 90 degrees, which is designed to avoid contact with basins and furniture. Inward opening bath screens include one fixed panel and one inward folding panel, which will completely avoid any fittings and fixtures.
Bath Screens that fold away are proving to be popular products, as these can be neatly folded away when not in use, for a minimalist look. They also present easier access for when stepping into the shower; are more practical when it comes to cleaning and make it easy to bath small children. The bath screen can also be folded away when bathing, so you don’t feel so enclosed.
Mini-fixed bath screens are designed to be used with a shower curtain to aid water integrity. The most common problem associated with shower curtains is the leakage of water, particularly along the tap end of the bath. Mini fixed bath screens solve this problem by providing a 1500mm high fixed screen for shielding the vulnerable corner, plus combination system for screens and rails to give a more water resistant solution. There is no longer the worry that the bathroom floor will become drenched at the mere thought of showering over the bath.
