3. They feature an AllClear coating
Possibly the best feature – and the biggest reason to buy a Lakes Bathrooms shower – is the AllClear coating. AllClear is a unique coating, which acts as a protective shield to the glass. It is designed to prevent soap scum, lime scale and water from staining glass in shower enclosures and screens. Not only that, it also makes glass more resistant to abrasions and impact.
AllClear essentially makes a glass panel self-cleaning. The coating repels water, scale, and scum and looks much cleaner and clearer compared to standard glass panels. As a result, shower screens that feature AllClear coating are much cleaner and clearer as compared to ordinary shower screens.
Moreover, AllClear coating makes a shower screen more hygienic because materials won’t accumulate on the glass. Therefore, there is no need for the use of harsh chemical cleaning agents. This makes Lakes Bathrooms shower screens better for the environment and your pockets as well.
While many companies will charge you a premium for similar coatings, you won’t find that with Lakes Bathrooms products. Every shower screen includes AllClear coating as standard and at no additional cost.
Because of this, AllClear coating is also a huge selling point for Lakes Bathrooms showers. This unique coating is featured only on premium grade shower screens, which are otherwise very expensive. However, the Lakes Bathrooms range is budget friendly while including AllClear coating. Certainly, no wonder why their shower screens are the most popular in the market.
4. They offer low cleaning maintenance
Thanks to the unique AllClear coating, Lakes Bathrooms showers require very little cleaning and minimum maintenance. While you will still need some basic maintenance, you won’t have to spend much time or effort in the process. And even if you don’t maintain the shower screen, it’ll still be clearer compared to ordinary glass panels.
There are certain maintenance guidelines to follow to ensure the AllClear coating is as effective as possible.
- After every single use, you should rinse or spray the surface with water, let it drain and wipe dry. This simple step will keep the glass looking brand new.
- Once a month, you should wet the glass surface and gently wipe it with a nylon sponge. This will remove any sticky areas from the glass surface and make them smooth once again.
Over several months of use, some visible stains may appear on the shower screen. However, you can simply use the AllClear Swift spray and clean the surface with a microfiber cloth to remove stains. Always remember to rinse and wipe the glass panel dry whenever you use any product on it.
As you can see, shower screens that feature AllClear coating require very little effort to maintain and keep clean. I’ve had many customers tell me how much they appreciate the low cleaning maintenance offered by Lakes Bathrooms showers. I’m sure you’ll appreciate it as well.
5. They offer an amazing lifetime guarantee
Lakes Bathrooms shower screens also come with an amazing lifetime guarantee. This lifetime guarantee protects you against any material or manufacturing defects on the product.

This lifetime guarantee applies to all doors, shower enclosures and shower screens in our Lakes Bathrooms range. The AllClear coating on the glass panels is also guaranteed to outperform untreated glass for at least 3 years.
