Shower cabins usually consist of one or two walls with doors, a faucet, a shower column and a drain to evacuate the water. Showers with bulkheads should be installed through masonry and plumbing. The integral cabins have a very simple installation. To make the shower an even more relaxing and pleasant place, the cabin can be equipped with jets capable of massaging under pressure.
The characteristics of your cabin should be directly related to the layout and space of your bathroom. In a corner or against the wall, the cabin may have a square shape or rectangular shape or in the form of a circle. As for height, most cabins do not exceed 2 meters. Do not forget to leave space around the shower, especially if the door opens outwards. The doors of the shower cubicles can be folding inwards, although they need a considerable space to be open. Sliders, on the other hand, do not need space to open or close, although they often present problems when cleaning them.
One of the most important elements of the shower cabin is the faucet, since it regulates the temperature and the water intensity. Normally a single-handle faucet with two movements is used. As far as temperature is concerned, the faucet is usually limited to 38 ° to avoid burns.
The vast majority of shower enclosures use thermoformed acrylic as a base material for opaque walls and flooring, although there are some models that are ceramic. The doors of the cabin tend to be transparent tempered glass.
