How to Fit a Shower Enclosure

Step 1:

If you choose a hinged door, decide whether you want your shower enclosure door to swing open to the left or the right. Your bathroom area will determine this.

Step 2:

Read all the manufactures instructions VERY carefully before attempting any assembly.

Step 3:

Ensure you have all the tools and parts required for the job. Doing this outside the bathroom is handy if you don't have a lot of space.

Step 4:

Safety comes first - make sure the glass used is toughened safety glass.

Step 5:

You want a water tight fit with NO LEAKS - so make sure there is full adjustment for all wall posts for walls that are uneven.

Step 6:

Make sure the door when closed, seals off after so that there are no leaks.

Step 7:

It's best to part assemble the shower door before you place it on the tray.

Step 8:

When in the desired position mark the correct point of the wall channels to ensure the shower tray fits in the right place of the shower try when it is fitted.

Step 9:

Always ensure the wall channels are vertical using your spirit level.

The 5 Golden Rules of Fitting a Shower Enclosure

1. Ensure your Shower Tray is Level

if it's not, you'll have problems throughout the rest of the build.

2. Tile Onto The Top of The Tray Not Behind it

3. Apply a Sanitary Sealant Around Tray Joints

this must be sealed first to ensure no water gets behind the wall channels. (Sealing either comes in clear form or a range of colours)

4. Fit Your Enclosure To a Tiled Wall

ensure you seal around the outside of the enclosure and not on the inside.

5. Always protect you shower tray with a dust sheet during installation and never use any products containing bleach to clean it with after installation.

When you've finished the installation

clean the surfaces with a methylated spirit and seal joints between framework, walls and shower tray.
