Keep A Dry Bathroom With Wet Room Shower Screens

How Wet Room Shower Screens Can Keep Your Bathroom Dry

Wet rooms are an increasingly popular bathroom design solution.  They are stylish with minimalistic designs and are perfect remedies for our cluttered lives.  In a fully waterproofed wet room a shower screen is an optional accessory; however, installing one will help keep water from escaping out of the showering area.

Having a shower screen will reduce the amount of water that splashes around the wet room and onto the other bathroom fixtures. Whilst a wet room is designed to get wet, having too much water on the floor or ending up with a wet towel is not pleasant.

Wet room shower screens also make the room even easier to clean by minimising any risk of mould developing if the ventilation is not perfect in your wet room.

Choosing A Wet Room Shower Screen

If you are looking to install a shower screen in your wet room, Tile Fix Direct offers a great range to choose from.  Our wet room shower screens are designed to prevent splash backs whilst maintaining the open, spacious feel of the room.

OrbryTM wet room shower screens are stylish and sturdy with a range of sizes to choose from.  Used in conjunction with an OrbryTM drain and shower tray, they ensure that drainage is easy and that the entire floor does not need to be sloped toward the shower drain.  Screens from OrbryTM are made from toughened 10mm safety glass (which ensures durability) and stand 2 metres tall.  Orbry screens can sit on top of the tiles or be recessed to sit within the tiles.  Additional products and optional upgrades are available, which will help you customise your shower area.

Convenient and Cost Effective Walk In Showers

If you are looking for a convenient and user-friendly shower, walk in showers are a great choice. Popular as a stylish alternative to the classic white plastic step in shower, these showers have a host of additional benefits.

Walk In Showers: For Convenience, Style And Value For Money

Walk in showers give a great modern look, can be tiled in complementary colours to the rest of the bathroom, increase the illusion of space and are easy to clean. Above all they offer convenience to users.

Using slip resistant mosaic tiles on walk in showers means the risk of slipping and injuring yourself on the bathroom suite is minimised.  This makes a walk in shower safer than step in showers and an ideal option for busy people, elderly and children. The minimalistic design and small number of fittings means cleaning these showers in quick and easy, again providing convenience for those with a busy lifestyle.

Be Energy Efficient With Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating functions by evenly dispersing heat at lower temperatures of around 35 degrees to an entire room, unlike radiators that heat up to much higher temperature of 65-70 degrees in order to heat a room of the same size.

Underfloor Heating Is Energy Efficient

Since underfloor heating systems operate at lower temperatures, the heat generated under this process is almost up to 15% more efficient than the heat given from traditional heating system.

In addition with radiators heating a room, there is a greater chance for heat loss when ventilations is found within the room. The warm air can easily escape, thus wasting the energy used to keep the room heated. However with underfloor heating keeping the immediate floor space warm, heat is retained better within the room and cannot be easily lost through cold spots with ventilation in the room.

Depending on the type of insulation you have at home and the usage frequency and temperature, underfloor heating can result in you saving an average 25-30% on energy bills compared to bills from traditional radiators.

In addition underfloor heating systems are less likely to require regular maintenance issues. They are installed with BS EN 1264 standards.
