Considerations when Buying
Shower Screens may be a one time install which you may use for years and years. So few things to look for when buying the shower screens would be the quality of the screen itself which should be of adequate thickness and fully water-resistant; durability of the hinges or sliding systems for long term usage; and lastly, if the sealing of panels is adequately water-tight.
Shower Screen Alternatives
While the simplest & DIY form of Shower Screen is Curtains, a decorative plastic sheet hung from a rod which enables you to restraint water to the bathing area to some extent. However, they are not very effective since adjoining areas may still get splashed with water and secondly, they do not give a neat and convenient solution.
Another alternative could be a non-movable, wall-fixed glass partition covering half or more of the shower area. This can effectively block the water splash during bathing keeping the rest of the bathroom dry.
