Shower Screens

A bathroom is one of the most important rooms of the home. In the privacy of that space we do a range of activities bathing, relieving, vanity, oral hygiene and more. Bathing being one of the primary activities, it causes a lot of water to be splashed making the floor wet and slippery. Wet floors have been a cause for many a fall and injury. So, keeping the bathroom floor dry is certainly desirable and a Shower Screen is what helps to maintain that.

Shower Screens are available in various types, shapes and screen designs. You can leverage the various options to add glamour and class to your bathroom.

Types of Shower Screens

Shower Screens need not be a one type, one size fit all fixture for Bathrooms. There are variations and options to choose from. At the most basic types there are –

Traditional framed Shower Screen with sliding mechanism. Typically, Aluminium or PVC frames are used with normal/patterned sheet glass or acrylic panels.

Frameless Shower Screens where panes of tempered glass are used with unobtrusive fittings. These are usually installed with Swing Door access

Semi-frameless – combination framed and frameless panes. These are rare and used in cases where full frameless section cannot be installed

Design & Decorative

As for the designs, there are ample of beautiful screens to choose from, especially for Acrylic Panels. Of course, if you prefer the clarity of glass then 4 mm tempered glass sheets are a popular choice.

If you wish to have a smart, snappy and clean look for your bathroom then a glass or acrylic based screen with a convenient open-close mechanism needs to be installed.

In addition, buyers have the choice of choosing the frame colours – White, Black or Silver

Shapes of Shower Screens

The shape and size of the bathing area in your bathroom will determine the shape of Shower Screen you would install. Again, at a high-level Shower Screens can be –

Simple wall to wall style of screen which can is used to simply partition your bathroom into wet and dry areas. Both Sliding & Swing Door access can be deployed for this style

Corner Style Shower which fits into the smallest available area and is structured with one fixed and one/two sliding or swing panels for easy access into the shower area

Diamond or Curved shaped shower cubicles, suited for limited space shower area and give a stylish look and feel

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.

Hats off to Mr Alex and his team, Kumar, Raju and Raki for installing window grilles. They did an excellent job! Great! After checking my kitchen grilles, Mr Alex raised concerns that removing the existing grilles could damage the tiles. However, he said that he will do his best to install the new grilles. His team did it! The workmanship was amazing. Thank you, Mr Alex and his team.

Alex and his team are very friendly and extremely professional. Followed up for a couple of months after installation to ensure that seepage problem was fully resolved. High quality workmanship. Thanks again!

Alex is a very professional window contractor. Not the usual contractor. Before I contracted him, he honestly told me that he was not sure if he could fix my window as the aluminium bended quite badly. Through his experience and knowledge, he managed to get it fixed within 3 hours. If you need a window contractor, I would strongly recommend Alex and his team.

Alex was extremely professional throughout the process and provided information and advice without any pressure or obligation to use his services. We ended up purchasing a full set of grilles and windows (double-glazed casement and sliding) for the entire house around a year ago. During the installation process, Alex was punctual, very accommodating in terms of schedule, and also willing to make adjustments and provide replacements where needed. After around a year of usage, we are satisfied with the quality of the windows and grilles, and would recommend Alex/Grillesnglass if anyone is looking for windows/grilles.
Many thanks to Alex and his team for their great work on the casement window replacement and aluminum grilles for my 4-room resale HDB flat. Alex is very knowledgeable and goes out of his way to provide excellent service and after-sales support to his customers. His team demonstrated great expertise and skill in preserving my kitchen tiles and minimising the impact on the surrounding walls as I had done the windows installation after the tiling and plastering work had already been carried out. Highly recommend Alex and his team for the great value for money and high quality services.
Thank you Alex for the quality product, patience and great after sales service. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and relatives.

Got in touch with Alex after seeing many positive reviews online, and decided to engage him to supply and install our whole house windows and catproof grilles. Unlike other big names in the market who quoted high prices but were unable to demonstrate their worth, Alex provided us with fantastic soundproofing solutions for all our windows at a reasonable price. He was always very punctual for site visits and highly responsible throughout the process. Permit application with the authorities was always done on time, and his wife AJ was also very prompt in coordination and following up with us for subsequent installations or touchup work. His workers were also very careful with our flooring, making sure to lay protection before carrying out their works. All in all, my wife and I are extremely pleased with our beautiful windows and grilles, as well as the level of soundproofing. We would highly recommend Alex to anyone who are looking for serious and professional window contractors.

This is for a 4-room resale HDB kitchen window replacement. Decided to enquire with Alex after seeing many good reviews online. Unlike other contractors who were reluctant to come down for site-consultation before proceeding or very slow in response, Alex was quick to respond and agreed for free consultation even if we choose not to proceed. During consultation, he was sincere and patient with all our questions and recommended his solutions professionally. He also assured us that it would be done well, especially the hacking of wall tiles. On day of installation, Alex came down with his team. Once again, they assured us. Indeed, His team were professional and did a great job. After they left, I had couple of questions on the grilles and its rollers. Without hesitation, Alex answered them and sent his team down again to check on the same day. We are very happy with the results! Their services had been excellent! Highly recommend!
