If for our bathroom we intend to mount a shower cabin, and we intend to opt for the one in fiberglass, it is important to evaluate several factors that determine the practicality, functionality and design. In the next steps we find a list with some tips for choosing a fiberglass shower enclosure.
1. Buy a smooth shower enclosure
Buy a smooth fiberglass shower enclosure, it is not a random choice option; In fact, if porous, the limestone that forms as a result of the water that beats you on the surface, it then makes it difficult to clean it and forces us to remedy the aesthetic defect, using oil to conceal the whitish patina typical of the limestone.
2. Opt for a clear hue
A fiberglass shower enclosure, especially if located in a small bathroom from a quadrature point of view, requires a simple but important measure; The ideal is to opt for a clear hue that in addition to giving light to the environment, it manages to better conceal the limestone species if in the classic white candy shade.
3. Privilege typology at a single opening
If the shower enclosure has to be wide enough and we opted for fiberglass, to be sure that it is perfectly watertight when we use it, it is convenient to privilege the type at a single opening, or with a sliding door, in whose tracks a gasket is placed, to maximize the result from the point of view of the waterproofing of the structure.
4. Buy approved type
As regards the choice of the quality of fiberglass, it is important to purchase it as a type approved, therefore having all the necessary requirements to be such. The shoddy ones, not only reveal themselves fragile and composed of canvas covered with a thin layer of fiberglass, but the latter also tends to crumble and many times it is produced by industrial waste, which could be detrimental to health, if some particles with heat tend to melt and spray. Choosing a shower enclosure of famous and not necessarily expensive brands means ensuring functionality and security, which is not negligible at all.
5. Avoid the shower cubicle with hinges
In the previous steps of this list, we mentioned a type of shower enclosure with a sliding door. Also in this passage the thesis must be confirmed; In fact, avoid the shower cubicle with hinges, it means to get it more waterproof because it has less points where the water can overflow. It also lasts even more, since the hinges are also usually of the same material, tend to crack and therefore are to be replaced.
