How to inspect your new shower enclosure

Posted by Adam Chard in Buying guides | 4 years ago 3 min read

So, you’ve found the perfect shower enclosure for your bathroom, ordered it and it’s now arrived. What should you do next?

Unwrapping any new delivery is always full of excitement, expectation and enjoyment. And when your new shower enclosure arrives it’s no different. However, it’s vitally important that you open and inspect your new product, so here are the next steps you need to take.

What to do when your shower enclosure arrives

  1. Read through the instructions provided. This will help you understand what should be included with the product.

  2. Remove all packaging and protective film. This is your opportunity to check for marks, scratches or breaks in the glass. And make sure to check your packaging, as it may contain small parts.

  3. The instructions may also suggest discarding certain components. Make sure to follow this as using incorrect parts could result in damage to the enclosure or tray when fitting.

  4. If you find any issues, contact us using LiveChat straight away and we can get it sorted for you.

  5. Finally, it’s important to ensure you have the correct size. Carefully check the length, width and height of your new shower enclosure against your space, taking things like wall adjustment and the height of your shower tray into consideration.
