Walk In Enclosures

What Is A Walk In Shower?

As the name suggests, a walk in shower allows you to simply walk in and shower.

Unlike a standard shower enclosure, walk in showers feature no doors, hinges, or runners, meaning they create a clean and modern look that is accessible to everyone and easier to keep clean.

Usually installed on top of a shower tray, a walk in shower’s doorless design makes it a fabulous choice for families with young children and people with limited mobility.

Available in recessed, corner, or floating designs to suit your space, walk in showers offer a stylish and practical showering solution that lasts.

Why Choose A Walk In Shower?

  • Minimalist and open plan style
  • Completely free of doors, making the very best use of space
  • Easy to keep clean
  • Great option for small or large bathrooms

Wet Room Enclosures

What Is A Wet Room?

A wet room is quite simply a bathroom in which the floor and the walls are sealed with a waterproof membrane to prevent water damage.

Designed with a sloping gradient, unlike shower enclosures and walk ins, a wet room does not feature a shower tray because water is channelled through a drain that is set into the floor.

Essentially, the entire floor of a wet room becomes the shower tray and the room itself becomes the enclosure.

An effective and stylish way of utilising bathroom space, a wet room can be installed on both the ground and upper floors of your home and can increase the value of your property.

Why Buy A Wet Room?

  • Perfect for those who want a contemporary look
  • Uses floor space more efficiently, and can make your bathroom feel more luxurious and spa-like
  • Easy to clean & perfect for those with limited mobility
  • Adds value to your home, classed as a “second bathroom”

What do I need to complete my enclosure?

  • Glass shower screen
  • Glass screen return panel (optional)
  • Glass end panel (optional)
  • Glass screen support arms or floor to ceiling support poles
  • Wet room drain
