Ability to Fit Left or Right Sided
Depending on the shape and design of your bath, you’ll want a shower screen that fits either on the left or righthand side. Most shower screens can be fitted either way, but it’s worth checking before you buy.
Material (Tempered Safety Glass)

This is usually available in a range of thicknesses, with the most common for shower screens being either 6mm or 8mm. The 8mm is slightly sturdier but will cost more.

How to fit a shower screen?
If you’re a DIY enthusiast, you should find fitting a shower screen relatively easy. Turn off your water before you start, and remember to have a silicone sealant ready. Your wall channel should have pre-drilled screw holes. Place the wall channel against the wall and mark the screw holes using a spirit level to check they’re straight.
Drill the holes into the wall and add wall plugs, then screw the wall channel to the wall and insert the bath screen into it. Screw the bath screen into the wall channel, then fit the seal to the bottom of the screen.
Finish off by sealing your shower from the outside. Leave to sit for 24 hours once sealed.
With such a range of shower screens on the market, it can be tricky to know what’s best for your bathroom. For a stylish, safe and reliable option, the Premier NSS1 Straight Bath Screen is a real crowd pleaser.
