What are the different types of shower screens and their benefits?

Shower screens come in a vast range of types and configurations to suit all bathrooms sizes and layouts. While a standard shower screen features two glass panels and is designed for corner installations, this isn’t always practical.

Common shower screen types include traditional shower screens, bi-fold shower screens, sliding door shower screens, pivot door shower screens, corner entry shower screens and quadrant shower screens. You then also have stand-alone shower doors and shower panels.

  • Traditional shower screens: cost-effective and easy to install
  • Bi-fold shower screens: doors fold in, ideal for small bathrooms that don’t have space for an opening door
  • Sliding door shower screens: suitable for small bathrooms that don’t have space for an opening door
  • Pivot door shower screens: door opens in either direction, ideal for small bathrooms that don’t have room for an outward opening door
  • Corner entry shower screens: great space saves, doors slide open from the centre, ideal for small bathrooms
  • Quadrant shower screens: great space savers, curved doors slide open from the centre, ideal for small bathrooms
  • Shower doors: ideal for tiled (3-wall) shower enclosures where a full screen isn’t necessary
  • Shower panels: contemporary, minimal in design, affordable, easy to install
