Attic/Loft conversions and areas with restricted space
One of the most commonly requested bespoke shower enclosures are those that need to fit within an attic of loft space, or a conversion with restricted space.
The rule of thumb is to ideally hang the glass shower door from the wall, and have the fixed panel secured around it’s perimeter with U Channel. Often there is the need for a solider panel, with a door to hinge from it, to avoid a towel radiator.
This 10mm thick glass shower enclosure has the door hinged off of the left hand wall using Offset wall to glass hinges and a 6" back to back pull handle. The fixed shaped panel on the right hand wall uses U Channel to secure in place. All components are a Chrome finish Simple and effective.

Full height floor to ceiling
A full height glass shower panel can be a showpiece, it can really make an impression in any bathroom.
The typical application is to surface mount the U Channel and then either slide the glass in laterally (if space to do so) or to employ a ‘lift and drop’ strategy. U Channel can also be embedded into the wall, floor and ceiling for a floating glass panel appearance. We recommend 10mm as a minimum for this scenario.
This impressive 10mm full height screen enables the customer to enter from either side. 10mm U Channel is placed on the ceiling and floor. The size also meant that our EasyClean solution requested to help with the speed and ease of cleaning and the reduction of water marks.
