Hey, sometimes UK bathrooms are kind of small so we need to contain water to where it’s intended!

The issue (a small case study)

The screen originally intended for this bath did not stop water from occasionally splashing onto the vanity unit at the foot of the bath, so we looked for an alternative to ensure our customers basin would last and so that they would be happy with their bathroom!

Potential solutions

We drew our customers attention to several designs of screens available on the market by working with our preferred suppliers.

Some were unsuitable as a window aperture occupied one end of the bath where the channel would need to be located.

Some options required the use of a shower curtain which some people do not prefer.

Longer bath screens were identified that would provide a bit more splash protection….

….as were even longer triple bath screens.

However, getting into and out of the bath also needed to be considered as well, so we looked at….

…concertina bath screens that can be bent around the user slightly when showering but folded up out of the way when not in use.


Eventually this nice double screen was chosen, which featured a fixed panel and supporting arm with a hinged panel that could be slightly angled to prevent unwanted splashing of the basin unit.

This would serve to contain splashes within the bath without compromising the overall aesthetic or the ability for the customer to get in and out of the bath.

Working with our suppliers

We work in partnership with our local bathroom supplier and our customers like the fact that they can have a look around the showroom in Armley and pick and choose the items they require as part of the process of working with us.
