The benefits and beauty of shower cubicles are often overlooked as many people misunderstand the benefits of cubicles over enclosures. Cubicles offer a swift and efficient showering solution for any shape
or size of bathroom. In some cases, you can have a watertight space, complete with the shower, controls and doors fitted and ready to enjoy in less than two hours.
For housing associations, this means you can do a great job in very little time, causing minimum disruption and mess to residents in cases of refurbishment projects and have new projects finished less time.
For the best type of product, look for manufacturers who design, manufactured and test in Europe, as this means they have complete control over the process and they can maintain the highest standards of quality and service.
Also ensure that all glass panels and doors meet the European standard EN12150 for toughened safety glass and choose manufacturers who supply our products flat-packed for ease of manoeuvrability.
Depending on our circumstances, some cubicles have the option for you to choose your own shower fittings, and others feature an integrated thermostatic control.
Look for cubicles that don’t require silicone. In the humid environment of the bathroom, silicone will deteriorate and discolour without constant maintenance. Generally speaking, if no silicone is required, the wall panels of the product are cleverly designed to fit snugly within the shower tray.
Choose cubicles with a leak free promise. If you choose wisely, from a quality manufacturer you should find that water simply runs down the inside of the shower with no chance of escape. And as there’s no need for tiling or grouting, your shower will stay looking as pristine as the day it was installed.
Look for cubicles that use Cristal Plus Glass. Cristal Plus is a permanent, anti-limescale coating that minimises the build-up of calcium deposits
and dirt on glass, reducing the need to clean. This transparent chemical treatment is resistant to hot water and UV rays, encouraging water to run off the glass without leaving streaks or water marks.
Installing a shower cubicle really is as easy as A, B, C.
Connect to waste and water and add the doors.
As with fitting any shower there are just three main considerations: floor construction; waterproofing, and drainage. The quality and reliability of the products used are essential.
The rest is down to choosing a quality manufacturer.
The Saniflo Kinedo range of superior quality shower cubicles includes Kinemagic Serenity, Kinemagic Design, Kinemagic Style, Horizon, Moonlight, Kineprime and Consort, and has been designed by the team at Saniflo to offer a comprehensive range of complete showering solutions for all applications.
An excellent choice for refurbishment projects is the Saniflo Kinemagic, which is a self-contained shower cubicle designed especially to fit in exactly the same space as a standard bath. The Serenity model features an anti-slip, low level tray, secure grab bar and fold down seat which is ideal for older or disabled customers. It provides extra safety and helps to reduce the risk of falling. In most bathrooms the change from bath to Kinemagic shower can be completed in just one day.
The recently upgraded range of Kinemagic cubicles has proved exceptionally popular since its launch last year. Now, following requests from customers, the team at Saniflo has developed a new optional panel that allows the fixing of an electric shower unit of the customer’s choice. The drillable panel is mounted on a high quality metallic frame and perfectly complements the styling of the Kinemagic cubicle. The neat, compact unit is installed in such a way that all water pipes and electric cable is fed into the frame from behind and stowed neatly out of sight.
Now any customer can benefit from the compelling reasons to install a Kinemagic shower cubicle. The electric shower panel will overcome issues such as insufficient stored hot water or low water pressure to provide a luxurious walk-in shower solution.
