SHOWERING

Shower Enclosures come in a wide range of shapes and sizes to suit any bathroom. A Complete Shower Enclosure will be made of a Shower Door, Shower Tray and sometimes a side panel depending on enclosure design.

Different shapes and styles of enclosures:

Quadrant Shower Enclosures:
A quadrant shower enclosure will be placed in the corner of your bathroom with a curved radius(normally 550mm Radius). Shower enclosures of this shape are normally sold as 1 or 2 Door Quadrant Shower Enclosures.

Offset Quadrant Shower Enclosures:
An offset quadrant enclosure is similar to the above but 1 straight edge installed in the corner of your shower room is longer than the other straight edge. This provides a greater showering area. When choosing an Offset Quadrant Enclosure you need to decide which corner of the room you are installing your shower into to decide if you need a Left Handed Quadrant Shower Enclosure or a Right Handed Quadrant Enclosure. These enclosures are only available as 2 Door Enclosures.

Rectangler Shower Enclosure:
As the name suggests - this shape of shower enclosure has 2 equal long sides and 2 equal short sides. When installing this style of enclosure into a corner, you will need a shower door, side panel and tray or if being installed between two walls i.e alcove-there will be no need for a separate side panel.

Square Shower Enclosure:
As the name suggests - this type of shower enclosure has 4 equal sides. Square shower enclosures are available as Pivot Door & Side Panel, Bifold Door & Side Panel or there is the Corner Entry Shower Enclosure - this style of enclosure has 2 sliding doors that meet together in the middle.

Walk-In Showers:

SHOWER UNITS
Fixed Valve/riser rail - Valve is in the wall, shower head is on a rail. Water supply is used from existing hot supply in your hot water cylinder

Fixed Valve/fixed head - This is a gravity shower, showerhead is fixed to the wall. Water supply is used from existing hot supply in your hot water cylinder. This shower relies on pressure from household. If increased pressure is required a pump can be installed to deliver water at a higher pressure.

Power Shower - Power showers are mixer showers with integral pumps which increase the rate of flow from the shower head. They can only be installed on low pressure, tank fed systems. A dedicated hot and cold supply is necessary. The water supply must always be above the unit to ensure that the pump is always primed and does not have to suck any air.

Instant Shower - Instant or electric showers provide hot water at the push of a button. An instant shower consists of a cylinder with an element. It takes cold water, heats it in the cylinder and delivers it at the required temperature.
