ABOUT SHOWER STALLS
Shower stalls involve four main components. The
shower base is fitted to the floor, to collect water from the shower and to
provide a firm base. The shower door is usually made of safety glass, and may be
framed or frameless.
Unless the shower stall is fitted into a recess, there will also be a need for one or two side panels, which are also usually made of safety glass and may be framed or frameless. Acrylic shower stalls are also available. Finally, the side or sides of the shower stall which are adjacent to a wall need waterproofing either by tiling or with a waterproof panel.
Alternatively one piece shower enclosures may be used; these form a complete shower stall unit. Specialist handicap shower enclosures are available for those with disabilities.
The simplest, utilitarian shower stalls are square in plan, typically about three feet on each side. More luxurious modern shower stalls are rectangular, about three feet by five feet. These can dispense with a door, and may have one curved glass side. They provide more room for showering, and are more elegant in appearance. They make the shower stall feel part of the room, rather than being a small closed-off cubicle.
