Choosing and installing the perfect bathroom for your home can be a bit stressful and daunting but don’t worry – we are here to help! Firstly, have a good look at your bathroom and the space that you have, taking into account the main features that you cannot alter, like where the window is, the door and the existing plumbing. Take time to measure your space to see how much room you have available to fit the desired shower enclosure that you would like – then measure it again!!

Quadrant or Corner Entries (square sliding doors) are perfect shower enclosures that will fit into the corners of your bathroom. The main benefit of this is that you are using two solid walls, already there to fix your shower enclosure to. As long as the two walls are at a right angle then there is no need for any adjustments or alterations and you don’t need to buy additional side panels, it simply slots right into the corner of your bathroom. These enclosures are a great addition to any bathroom. They are both modern in appearance and sleek looking, so will add a touch of class as well as being practical. They are also great space savers as the glass doors do not open outwards into your bathroom, so not just giving you more space to work with but also stops water dripping onto the floor like other shower doors. There are two types of sliding enclosures, curved, also known at quadrants, or corner entries, also known as square shower enclosures.

Quadrant doors are basically two sliding doors that are curved to the front or entrance. These are great if you have a limited space in your bathroom, as they do not project out. They generally come in three sizes, 800x800mm, 900x900mm & 1000x1000mm. If you are lucky enough to have a bigger space then maybe an offset quadrant would better meet your needs. Offset quadrants are also curved but they are not symmetrical like quadrants, one side is longer than the other e.g. 1200x900mm. Offset quadrants come in various sizes and must have an offset quadrant tray to match it. Trays come either left or right-handed so please make sure to pick the correct hand tray – if you are still unsure check out our previous blog about left or right hand trays if you need help deciding which one you should order.

Square Enclosures are also known as corner entry enclosures. These are really great shower enclosures if you have limited to space as generally they come in smaller sizes, 760 x 760mm up to 1000 x 1000mm. But even the smaller size, with its design, allows more space within the cubicle for that relaxing shower. In addition, like the quadrant, as long as you have two walls at a right angle this space saving shower enclosure will just slot straight in with no need for alterations or the use of additional side panels.

Ordering a shower door or enclosure can feel like a daunting process. We have listed below some of the things that need to be considered when buying a shower enclosure in respect to the "adjustment".

At Shower Enclosures Direct, we sell shower enclosures in various sizes.

If the space you have available falls short of the standard sizes we offer, using the "adjustment" on a shower enclosure will work for you.

On every size enclosure there is an adjustment usually of about 30mm but this differs with every manufacturer from as little as 15mm to 40mm. This means that the enclosure may be altered slightly to achieve the desired fit, in order to fit a smaller / larger space than the size of the enclosure.

But how is this possible you may ask?

There is space within the wall profile where you can align your door, either very close to the wall or further away. Usually, adjustment only reduces the size of the enclosure, thus, the largest size for adjustment is the actual measurement of the enclosure.

However, there are some exceptions. With one of our products we offer an adjustment of up to 5mm on a sliding door. All makes and manufacturers offer different adjustments. For example, another line that we carry gives an adjustment of between 720 & 740mm on a 760mm shower door.

Adjustment can be used if you have an uncommon space for your enclosure or if you have uneven walls, perhaps because you have an older property.

Generally, the cheaper products carry less adjustment. This is because the cheaper items use less raw materials such as thinner aluminium or the handles are finished with a sheen rather than polished chrome. When it comes to Shower Enclosures you really do get what you pay for.

So, the important points to take away with you are:

• Every enclosure carries an adjustment
• Adjustments can increase or decrease your enclosure size
• Adjustments can be used if you have uneven walls or an irregular space
• The cheaper the product the less adjustment provided
• The cheaper the product the poorer the quality
