Shower Screens for the Bathtub Shower Combination

October 12, 2010

One option for a bathtub shower combination is called a “shower screen.” A shower screen can be any thickness, typically from 1/4″ to 1/2,” and can be fixed or on hinges. Some shower screens are made using obscured glass, while others are clear. Fixed shower screens can be mounted using a U channel or with glass clamps, also called brackets. They commonly have a rounded edge in the uppermost corner away from the shower head. This is not necessarily the case, though.

This particular shower screen is located in Soquel, California. It’s 1/2″ thick, and is made using clear tempered glass. The glass panel has a radius, or rounded corner, and is installed using hinges. Even though the toilet, which is installed right next to the tub, is higher than the deck of the tub, having the shower screen on hinges allows for limited movement. This makes cleaning the glass more convenient and comfortable.
