Installing a frameless shower screen with a shower base

Installing a frameless shower screen with a shower base

Hi,

I recently bought the D'LUCCI 10 x 2000 x 865mm Frameless Glass Shower Panel Door Kit; Item Number: 4890736.

I need some advise. I also purchase a shower base from Reece for my bathroom and would like to fit the shower door kit to the shower base. I was wondering if that can be done? Can I fit the bottom bracket into the shower base? I prefer using a shower base rather than a tile base.

 

Any advise or tips would be greatly appreciated

 

Thanks.

Re: Installing a frameless shower screen with a shower base

Hi @Rach_m - I think we need some photos if possible. The glass door kit mounts to the wall, so assuming you got the right size shower base (870mm as per the Bunnings info for the shower screen) - the bottom bracket should be ok. Thinking you need a plumber to install, waterproof etc., the shower base? This will ensure that the levels are ok for the screen installation. But photos would be good! Cheers Deb

Hi Deb,

 

This is the shower base that I purchased from Reece.

This is the shower screen that I purchased from Bunnings.  Yup, will be getting a plumber to do the install ect, but just wondering if these two items would fit together before getting the plumber in and realise it doesn't. Appreciate your help.

Re: Installing a frameless shower screen with a shower base

Welcome to the Workshop community @Rach_m. My apologies for the slow response.

 

Unfortunately the D'lucci Frameless Glass Shower Panel Door Kit is suited to be fixed to a tiled hob and the manufacturer does not recommend the frameless kit being installed onto a pre-made shower base as it is not structurally sound.

 

If your intentions were to lay tiles up to the edge of the shower base, then the kit can be installed directly onto those.

 

Please let me know if you need any further advice on the installation or have other questions.

 

Mitchell
