Walk In Showers
Walk in shower enclosures will help you create a luxury spa shower experience in your own home. These enclosures are great for anyone with a larger bathroom and the reduced step and lack of a door makes them ideal for anyone with mobility issues.
These fixed glass screens can be installed directly onto a tiled and waterproofed wetroom floor, or on top of a shower tray. Unlike a conventional cubicle with a shower door, a walk in shower also has no runners or hinges to trap dirt and grime.
Walk in showers are available in a range of different shapes and sizes to fit your bathroom and taste. For help choosing your perfect enclosure, take a look at our handy guide.
