How to Install a Frameless Shower Screen

Installing a frameless shower screen requires careful attention to detail and precision to ensure a secure fit and a watertight seal. Here are general steps for installing a frameless shower screen:

  1. Gather Materials and Tools:
    • Frameless shower screen kit
    • Silicone sealant
    • Spirit level
    • Drill and appropriate drill bits
    • Wall plugs and screws
    • Masking tape
    • Glass cleaner
  2. Prepare the Area:
    • Ensure the shower area is clean and free of any debris or residue.
    • Use a spirit level to ensure that the walls and floor are level and plumb.
  3. Measure and Mark:
    • Measure the shower area and the dimensions of the frameless shower screen to ensure a proper fit.
    • Use masking tape to mark the positions where the screen will be installed on the walls and floor.
  4. Drill Holes:
    • Use a drill with an appropriate drill bit to create pilot holes in the walls and floor according to the marked positions.
    • If drilling into tiles, use a tile drill bit and go slowly to avoid cracking the tiles.
  5. Install Wall Mounts:
    • Insert wall plugs into the pilot holes and attach the wall mounts securely to the walls using screws.
    • Ensure the mounts are level and properly aligned with the marked positions.
  6. Move the Glass Into the bathroom:
    • Setup with timber on the ground and the wall so the glass does not touch the tiles 
    • carefully move the glass into the bathroom and set it aside.
  7. Install Glass Panels:
    • With the help of an assistant, carefully lift the glass panels and slot them into the wall mounts and bottom bracket.
    • Ensure the panels are aligned properly and seated securely in the mounts.
  8. Secure Glass Panels:
    • Once the glass panels are in position, use the provided screws to secure them to the wall mounts and bottom bracket.
    • Tighten the screws evenly to avoid placing stress on the glass.
  9. Apply Silicone Sealant:
    • Use a high-quality silicone sealant to seal the gaps between the glass panels and the wall mounts, bottom bracket, and shower floor.
    • Apply a generous bead of silicone along the edges and smooth it out with a silicone smoothing tool or your finger.
  10. Clean and Finish:
    • Clean any excess silicone from the glass and surrounding surfaces using glass cleaner.
    • Allow the silicone sealant to cure according to the manufacturer's instructions before using the shower.
  11. Final Check:
    • Once the silicone has cured, check the frameless shower screen for stability and ensure there are no leaks.
    • Make any necessary adjustments or reseal areas if needed.
