Baths, like people, are not all the same shape or size!

When choosing, take into account space available and how it will be used; is it intended for just bathing or will it also be used as a shower?

Baths from Cannadines Bathrooms in Brighton, East Sussex

Glass thickness

4, 6, 8 or even 10mm glass!

All shower doors are manufactured of toughened safety glass which complies with British Standards. In the very unlikely event of the glass breaking it will fall into droplets rather like a car windscreen. With the least expensive enclosures the glass will probably be 4mm thick which is sufficient but will need to be fully framed and may not feel very solid when opening or closing.

Typically the glass will be between 6mm and 8mm thick which means that the glass will be strong enough to be frameless which enhances the appearance and makes cleaning a little easier,. With glass of this thickness the enclosure will have a solid feel when the door is opened or closed.

There is no necessity to make the glass thicker than 8mm but if you wish to purchase an enclosure with 10mm glass there are various products available. With 10mm glass the door will certainly have a more solid feel then an 8mm option and whilst we currently do not display a 10mm door we will be happy to discuss the various options available.
