Glass Bath Screen FAQs
What are the benefits of glass bath screens?
Whether you have a traditional bath or a bath-and-shower combo, you’ll need a waterproof barrier to block the water from splashing out onto the floor and nearby furnishings while using the facilities.
Outdated plastic curtains have been the go-to option because they were low-cost, but this is reflected in how ineffectual they can be. A curtain can easily fall down or be pulled over the edge of the bath to drip water everywhere outside it, and they need to be replaced when they get grubby.
It’s a much better idea to invest in a glass bath screen, because it’s tough and reliable enough to last for a long time without requiring much maintenance. Not only does glass look more modern and sophisticated, but with hinged glass bath screens, the panel can also swing out of the way for easy access and back into place for protection.
Being made of clear glass, the toughened glass screen forms an effective barrier without making the bathing area feel uncomfortably enclosed. The space will look bigger when light can spread through the glass, which is helpful for small bathrooms.
Which glass bath screen size do I need?
To work out which size bath screen you should order, you must measure the area where you want to install it carefully. Get another person to help and check the measurements a few times to make sure they’re as accurate as possible.
First, remove any objects or obstructions from the area, then use a measuring tape to measure from the edge of the bath up to where you want the panel to stop. This will give you the height (the standard height of our bath screens is 1500mm).
Next, measure from the wall that the panel hinges will be fitted to along the bath edge to the end point of where you want the glass screen to cover. This will give you the width (the standard widths available are 600mm, 700mm, 800mm, or 900mm).
It’s a good idea to re-take the measurements from a few different points, both height-wise and width-wise, and draw a basic diagram recording these details. This will provide the most accurate idea of which of our glass bath screen sizes will be suitable.
Will your glass bath screens fit any bath?
We have multiple glass bath screen widths available to suit a range of bath sizes, so they’re sure to fit most baths that can accommodate a vertical rectangular panel.
Each cut-to-size glass panel comes with adjustable hinges for glass-to-wall installation, allowing you to adjust the alignment of the bath screen so it fits perfectly.
However, we know that not everyone’s baths or bathrooms are standard shapes or sizes – some may have irregular walls, ceilings, or window or door locations that affect the way a glass screen can fit into the bath area and move back and forth safely.
That’s why we’ll always do our best to meet your needs if you contact EGW to request a bespoke glass bath screen for your unique dimensions.
