If you're thinking of fitting a new showerenclosure, but don't know what a quadrant shower enclosure actually is or whatbenefits it will bring, it's high time you found out.
Featuring a curve-shaped frontage, thequadrant shower enclosure is designed to fit snugly into the corner of yourbathroom or ensuite. It normally comes with hinged or sliding shower doors,complete with shower door seals, that fit in with the curved shape.
If you are still trying to decide whichshape to choose, here are 5 good reasons to pick a quadrant shower enclosure.
1. Space-saving design
As the front of the shower enclosure iscurved, it doesn't protrude as far into your room as, say, a rectangular orsquare shower enclosure would. It still gives you plenty of room forside-to-side movement whilst showering, but cuts down on the backwards andforwards space, which, let's face it, is a luxury rather than a necessity.
2. Good for odd bathroom layouts
Bathrooms pose unique layout headaches andthere are many oddities that can often make a quadrant shower enclosure justthe right choice. Some examples could be the placement of your toilet or basin,a vanity unit or access to a recess.
3. A softer shape
Sometimes the shapes we use in ourbathrooms can dictate the style of certain elements. If you really want arounded suite or rounded bath, a quadrant shower enclosure will be moresympathetic to your design. A square enclosure, for example, will provide straight,clean edges and works better with more angular suites.
4. Off set option
If you have a bit more room to spare, butstill want to make great use of your space, an offset quadrant shower enclosurecould be just the job. Designed with a larger showering space, they areavailable in left and right hand fitting versions, complete with shower doorseal strips to keep water firmly inside.
5. Less glass to clean
Whilst a rectangular or square shapedshower enclosure presents 2 whole panes of glass (not to mention the doors),most quadrant shower enclosures come with just the curved face to clean,meaning quicker and easier maintenance.
Of course, you can now purchase quadrantshower enclosures with easy clean glass which helps to repel soap, dirt andlimescale, for a clear and sparkling finish.
