Make It Level
The first and possibly most crucial step of installing your new shower enclosure is to ensure that the tray you will be using is level. However, why is this so important? Well if you try to install your new shower enclosure on a tray that is not level then it can make it much more difficult to both fit against your wall and, depending on how badly the tray is not level, could affect how it looks in your bathroom, i.e. it may look wonky in your bathroom.

 

 

 

 

Build The Frame
Once you have ensured that your tray is perfectly level you can then start to construct the main frame for your shower enclosure. So for this you will require your 2 straight panels which, depending on the make, will come attached to 2 metal profiles. With these 2 pieces you will need to firstly attach them to the bottom-curved bar of your shower enclosure, this is done by placing your pieces of straight glass (one on either end) flush against the top of your curved bar. There should then be a certain amount of over hang from the metal profile attached to your straight piece of glass which you will use to connect to the end of your curved bar by using screws to join the 2 together. You will then need to repeat this procedure with the second curved bar which will sit at the top of your frame.

Join It To The Wall
As you may be able to guess from the title of this paragraph, the next stage is to attach the frame to the wall. In order to do this you will need to slot your wall profiles (part C on the Aquaspa Deluxe Quadrant) over the metal profile of your straight glass panel. Your enclosure can then be positioned on the walls in your bathroom to wherever you want it to sit on your tray, then once positioned you should use a pencil to mark where the holes need to be drilled on your wall to join the shower enclosure tightly to the wall (holes come predrilled on the wall profiles).
Once you have marked out all of the holes that need to be drilled you should then move the shower enclosure away so that you can drill the holes. After the holes have been drilled in your walls you can then place the wall plugs (part M on the Aquaspa Deluxe Quadrant) into the holes, place the enclosure back in the required location and then screw the wall profiles to the wall.

Don’t Forget To Join The Rest Of The Frame
So now you have your wall profiles joined firmly to your walls and the rest of the frame slotted inside the wall profiles, so the next step is to firmly secure the wall profile to the rest of the frame. This is done in a similar way in which they were joined to the walls, so firstly by drilling a hole through both the wall profile (Hole is Pre-Drilled on Aquaspa Deluxe Quadrant) and the profile attached to your straight piece of glass. Once this is done you can then use the screws provided to firmly attach the two together.

Where Are The Doors?
Now that you have your frame tightly fastened into place you can add the doors, so firstly you will need to attach the rollers to your door. When this is done you need to ensure that the rollers you use at the top of the doors are fixed and the bottom rollers are quick release. Once all 8 rollers have been attached to your 2 quadrant doors (4 rollers per door) you then need to ensure that all seals are attached to the doors and on the inside edges of the two fixed straight panels as shown in the diagrams.
The final steps that need to be done to complete the doors for you quadrant shower enclosure is to attach the chrome doorknobs to the doors and to fit the doors to the enclosure. These two steps can be done in either order so it is up to you which step you complete first, in this case we will attach the doors first. This is simply done by inserting the top rollers into the top curved bar of your shower enclosure which should then hold your door in place whilst you sort the bottom rollers. These need to be done slightly differently as they are quick release rollers so you will need to gently push down on both rollers which will push the wheels down so that you can insert them into the rail of the bottom curved bar. Once your doors have been attached like this you can simply screw your doorknobs into the pre-drilled holes to allow you to open and close the doors with ease.

 

 

The Finishing Touches
Now that you have your new quadrant shower enclosure fitted together you just need to add the finishing touches. All this will involve is adding your chrome cover caps that are provided with the enclosure and then simply using your sealant to seal your shower and prevent any leaks from occurring. So there you have it, your enclosure is now fitted and ready for use, as soon as the sealant dries of course.
