I have just had a shower tray fitted in to a recess, and now have to get a
glass shower screen to complete it, in order to get the best reasonable
price I want to use a standard size as I am reluctant to get made to measure
as this adds about £200 to the cost.
I took up the excess ok with the shower tray but was slightly mislead as
they said I could get a slightly bigger screen but didnt mention the extra
The screen will be about 2 cms short, what would be the best way to `take
up` the excess, the walls are tiled and bear in mind this would be
considered `damp` conditions. I did think about a wooden batton but not sure
of the dampness factor. The excess would be at the furthest point from the
shower head a distance of 1100mm.
Any ideas appreciated.
A bit more info might help, i.e. is the recess a '3 sided box' and the
screen will be the final side, how wide is the recess opening, etc. shower
doors are manufactured to take up dicrepencies Did you do this yourself or
are a company doing it as you said " I have just had a shower tray fitted in
to a recess..." which makes me think the former, if so ask them to sort it
out they did it!
Thats not 2cm its 20cm (200mm or approx 8 inches) thats one serious mis
If it is 200mm can you (or he) build a pillar out of timber and ply and tile
that to make the opening fit the screen
So is the opening 1300mm and the screen 1280mm or the screen 1100mm and the
opening 1120mm. Do you know the make of the screen so I can 'Google' it and
have a look if there is a web site. If the gap is only 20mm that shouldn't
cause too much of a problem to solve if we have a bit more info.
Ok exact measurements are:- opening 1135mm. and screen 1100
the screen has an adjusment factor of 1040-1100
the next size up adjusts from 1140-1200 which has too large a minimum
I believe the make is `the lakes collection. Possibly `Provex Products ltd`
This one I presume, http://www.provexproducts.co.uk/ff-slider.htm ? The so
the gap is actually 35mm not 20mm, with a bit of 'persuasion' the 1140-1200
size would fit. Also as this end would be the 'non business' end the
adjustment channel could be attached to the frame, the frame swung into
position and then siliconed in it's final position. Where abouts are you
georaphically? You might find somebody willing to come round and have a
butchers for you!
20mm "knock on" from a PVCu window manufacturer screwed to wall, shower
screen screwed to that, white silicone seal down either side to tiles and
finish any gap from shower screen to end of knock on (it's 70mm wide) with
quad PVCu beading siliconed on.
