Below is a two part video showing the installation of one of our semi-frameless shower screens.
Part 1 – Mark and drill the holes
Shows you the tools for the job, unpacking the screen, measuring and marking the holes for the mounting bracket, safety considerations and drilling the holes.
Part 2 – Fix mounting bracket and screen in place
Shows how to insert the anchors, apply silicone to the mounting bracket, lining up and fixing the mounting bracket to the wall, moving the shower screen into position and fixing the shower screen to the mounting bracket.
Not shown in Part 2, but important:
- After the shower screen is installed caulk the joint between the mounting bracket and the wall/tub ledge. Continue the caulk around the bottom of the pivot to prevent water from getting under the shower screen. The bottom seal must be pressed onto the bottom of the glass far enough to enable the sweep to move over the tub ledge and as close as possible to the pivot (with the small plastic piece installed on the sweep). Wiping the bottom of the glass with a wet rag can make this job easier.
