Choosing the correct shower tray is essential as it is the foundation for your shower enclosure, ensuring that it not only looks good, but will last a lifetime.

1. What Material Is Used?

Pearlstone shower trays are made from a mixture of minerals and resins, including volcanic ash. Acrylic is made of acrylic. Pearlstone shower trays are made from patented technology making them both the lightest and the toughest shower trays on the market.

2. What Is The Expected Life Span?

Pearlstone trays are a reliable, long lasting option when compared with their acrylic counterparts. They also come with a lifetime guarantee.

3. What Is The Strength/Endurance?

Pearlstone trays are much more durable and do not bow or misshape. Acrylic shower trays are known to be more flexible than stone resin, but with flexibility comes breaks or cracks. The Pearlstone tray is really the best option, will not need repairing and will stand the test of time.

4. Is The Installation Difficult?

Pearlstone trays are 50% lighter than acrylic, making them a lot easier to install. The Pearlstone tray’s slimline design means it can be fitted inset into the floor creating a wet room, flush to the floor as standard, or raised above the floor with the easy plumb fitting kit.

5. How Do They Look?

Our Pearlstone trays are coated with 3mm acrylic to give a smooth and robust finish. Thus, both types of tray look similar in appearance; clean and sleek, but because of the material used, the pearlstone tray tends to be more comfortable to stand on.

6. What Sizes Are They Available In?

Both trays types are available in various sizes from 760mm x 760 mm to 1700mm x 800mm. They are both available in various shapes, such as, square, rectangle, quadrant and offset quadrant.

7. Where Are They Manufactured?

All of our shower trays are manufactured in the United Kingdom. Meaning the shower trays are designed for the UK market and also support the local economy!

8. Are they Expensive?

Although pearlstone trays are more expensive than acrylic trays, it does work out cheaper in the long run. With the lifetime guarantee, that comes with the pearlstone tray, you will only need to buy one tray whereas you may need to replace your acrylic tray more often. Plus our prices at Shower Enclosures Direct will ensure you save money too!

Choosing and installing the perfect bathroom for your home can be stressful and daunting. We have some useful tips to try and make the whole experience more enjoyable!

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 available space, to fit your desired shower enclosure, and then measure it again to ensure its 100% accurate.

Quadrant or Corner Entries

The Quadrant And Corner Entry shower enclosures are perfect to fit into the corners of your bathroom.

The main benefit, of these enclosures, is that you are using the existing two solid walls to fix your shower enclosure to. As long as the two walls are at a right angle, there is no need for any adjustments or alterations or additional side panels as the enclosure simply slots right into the corner of your bathroom.

These enclosures are a great addition to any bathroom. They are both modern in appearance, classy and very practical. They are also great space savers, as the glass doors open inwards into the enclosure, giving you more space in your bathroom.

There are two types of sliding enclosures, curved, also known at quadrants, or corner entries, also known as square shower enclosures.

Quadrant Enclosures (Sliding Doors)

On the Quadrant Shower Enclosure the 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 into the room. They generally come in three sizes, 800 mm x 800 mm, 900 mm x 900 mm & 1000 mm x 1000 mm.

Offset Quadrant Enclosures (Sliding Doors)

If you have a bigger space for your shower enclosure, maybe an Offset Quadrant Enclosure would be better.

Offset quadrants are also curved but they are not symmetrical like quadrants, one side is longer than the other, for example 1200 mm x 900 mm. Offset quadrants come in various sizes and must have an offset quadrant shower tray to match it.

Our Offset Quadrant Shower 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 blog about left or right hand trays.

Square Enclosures (Sliding Doors)

Square Shower Enclosures are also known as corner entry enclosures. These are fantastic shower enclosures if you have limited space, as generally, they come in smaller sizes, 760 mm x 760 mm up to 1000 mm x 1000 mm.

Even the smaller size, with its design, allows more space within the cubicle for a 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
