How to select the correct Side panel for your enclosure?
When fitting a walk-in enclosure or shower enclosure and keeping a wet room waterproof, side and inline panels play a key role. Such panels come with the shower enclosure or can be purchased separately, usually available from the same brand. Here we share with you everything you need to know about side panels.
Style of Enclosure
For the enclosure, there is a wide variety of styles to choose from, and you need to know what practically and stylistically works for you. We suggest you visit stores that stock bathroom remodelling products. The sooner you decide and plan, the faster everything will work out with great results. Your space needs to be considered and also the aesthetic needs and design framework.
Side panels can be matched with the rest of the enclosure and come as transparent, opaque, frosted or tempered. Depending on the type of enclosure you need to create, you can select the glass for the enclosure along with the panels. For example, transparent glass is the best materials which allow a seamless merging of the shower area with the rest of the bathroom space to create a dream setting.
Side panels also come in a different thickness of glass in line with the thickness of the enclosure material. Thickness matters as the thicker, tempered glass can stand up to the daily onslaught of power showers, steam and heat from the water. Also, use of thick, safety glass is the go-to choice to avoid injury in the event of the enclosure glass crashing due to any reason.
When you opt for reliable brands such as Merlyn, Twyford, April or Simpsons, you are assured a high quality construction. This extends to the shower panels as well. Apart from reliable and long-lasting performance, the glass comes with patented coatings, according to the brand, which resists stains, lime scale and keeps the glass surface as good as new.
