7. Can hinged shower doors swing inwards only?
No, all hinged shower doors must open outwards. Hinged shower doors that swing inwards only are not permitted by code. The shower enclosure must permit unobstructed access to a showering person in case of a fall.
However, shower doors can open in both directions, outward-opening and inward-swinging. You’ll need minimum 50cm of clearance space outside your shower to install a swinging shower door. Otherwise, you could consider choosing a sliding shower door instead of swing one.
8. Most popular glass angles
Plan for your shower to be built using 90°, 135°, or 180° angles. Most shower screen hardware is designed to accommodate these angles, so planning your shower screen with this in mind ensures a more cost-effective installation and a properly functioning enclosure.
9. Raised tiles and overhangs
Shower doors should be installed in such a way that nothing interferes with their movement and there are no gaps between the door and the wall.
The tile or granite can be modified to allow for door operation, but a filler might need to be applied, negatively impacting the look of the finished product. A better solution is to include a fixed panel in your design. That way, the door can align with the panel on one side, opening and closing properly with no interference. On the other side, the tile can be notched to allow the panel to line up flush against the wall.
10. Buttress design
When designing an enclosure that has a buttress or “knee” wall, plan on including an in-line panel into your design. That way, you can modify the fixed panel to accommodate the buttress wall instead of trying to modify the door.
11. How to look after your shower screen?
Excess silicone or printing on glass may be removed with turpentine.
Your screen is made from safety glass but it can be damaged by hard knocks or very hot water. Always make sure cold water is mixed with the hot and that the shower rose is not pointing directly onto the glass.
Clean you screen with mild cleanser such as Shower Power. Avoid using harsh abrasives on the frames. A microfibre cleaning cloth is quite effective.
Simple wipe with sponge or damp cloth or microfibre cloth is recommended to clean smudges on metallic finished frames.
There are many products on the markets to clean shower screens for example Pine-Green Spray, Glitz etc. Please follow the product directions.
