you don’t want to give up your bath but still want the
convenience of a shower, the easiest and quickest option is
to fit your shower over your bath. In order to protect the
rest of the room from the spray and water from the shower,
you could, as an alternative to a flimsy shower
curtain, install a shower screen. Bath and shower screens
are made from toughened safety glass and are typically fixed
to the wall at the end of the bath where your shower controls
and shower head are located.
In all cases, you should check your bath is suitable for
a shower screen because the
force of the water from your shower may move the screen and
therefore leak. A slight ridge along the edge of the bath
is ideal, but as a minimum the top edge of your bath should
be flat right up to the wall.
If your bath is recessed with walls on 3 sides, a screen
which is designed to fit to a track along the edge of the
bath and on the ceiling and slides open will give you a completely
closed in showering area the full length of the bath.
