All of our Shower Screens, Enclosures, Doors and Panels are manufactured using only the very best quality Glass, Fittings, Fixings and Seals.
Every glass panel or door is custom made to shape and size from the measurements taken and templates produced on our survey visit - or from the details supplied by yourself, your builder or architect.
- For further information see our Unique Survey System
Our standard specifications are as follows and they are your Guarantee of a Shower Installation that will be Fit for the Purpose, Strong and Durable, Easy to Clean and Visually Stunning.
10mm (millimeter) Pilkington Clear Toughened Float Glass with Polished Edges - for guaranteed optical clarity, strength, rigidity and safety - for very large sizes, the Glass Thickness will be increased
We can also fit Acid Etched, Sandblasted and other Decorative Glass
All Glass is treated with Invisible Shield Glass Surface Sealer, a transparent polymer coating - which repels water and guards against staining, dirt build up, grime, mould, mildew and limescale (hard water) mineral deposits - for easier cleaning and a brilliant shine.
Doorknobs, Handles, Hinges, and (where necessary) Corner Clamps and Reinforcement Bars - Bohle German manufactured Chrome Finished Brass - for a strong, stunning, durable and easy to clean finish
Bohle Polished Stainless Steel finished aluminium “U” Channels with radius corners - for optimum glass support, easy cleaning and discreet, elegant visuals
Where Channels are used all Glass is seated onto (horizontal) or against (vertical) Transparent PVC Setting Blocks for rigidity and resistance to vibration and minor impacts - specially manufactured with a light refractive index almost identical to the glass to avoid “edge shadowing” and visual distortions in the glass
For securing Channels to Walls, Floors and Ceilings (for Steam Rooms) - Concealed Fixings with Stainless Steel Screws into masonry and ceramics - for both maximum sheer and compressive strength and to ensure long life with no corrosion
For securing All Channels including to Walls, Floors, Ceilings and Shower Trays - Stixall Extreme Power Crystal Clear - manufactured by Everbuild using hybrid polymer technology
Acknowledged as the very best combined building adhesive and sealant, bonds and seals Channels to Shower Trays with no drilling
Wall and Ceiling Channels (for Steam Rooms) are bedded on Stixall before screw fixing
Guaranteed to be Totally Waterproof
All glass is permanently secured into the Channels, once again using Stixall Extreme Power as detailed above
A variety of discreet, durable, clear Plastic Sealing Strips (with Water Deflectors where appropriate) - to suit every application and combination of Shower Doors and Panels - for perfect sealing
For the complete range of sealing strips – please see pages 17 to 21 of the Bohle Shower Fittings Catalogue:
For the vertical meeting edges of In Line, or Side by Side, Fixed Glass Shower Panels
Generally this is only necessary for very large spans where Limited Internal Access prevents us from manufacturing the panel in one piece
In these situations, we neatly seal the polished edges using a very discreet Silicone Seal
