When you’re choosing a quadrant shower enclosure for your bathroom, here are some things to keep in mind:
A quadrant shower can be an extremely economical choice, but it’s also possible to treat yourself with luxury models. Consider the cost of extras such as shower trays and tiling.
Quadrant showers come in a range of sizes, allowing you to use as much or little space as you have. The 800mm shower is the standard, compact size, and is large enough for most showering purposes. If you’ve got some floor space to spare, you can upgrade to a 900mm or 1000mm size, which will give you a little more elbow room and a more indulgent shower.
While the classic quadrant shower enclosure is square with rounded doors, it’s also possible to find offset quadrants, which have one longer side, giving you a little more space in the shower. Check the height, too. Standard models are about 1850mm to 1900mm tall, but some high end or designer enclosures can be a lot higher. You may have the choice of right or left-hand fitting.
Type of door:
Most shower doors are made of tempered glass. Look for models that are at least 5mm thick. At the higher end of the market you can find thicknesses of 8 to 10mm, but as some people prefer the look of thinner glass, don’t judge the quality solely by the glass thickness
With so many models to choose from, much of your decision will be down to personal taste. Do you want clear, frosted, or mirrored glass? Do you like the look of chrome accents or the simplicity of frameless styles? Do you want quick release rollers for easy cleaning? One door or two?
