Prepare the components as per the diagram so they are at hand when required.
NOTE: As the door has an expanding front, it is flexible & may come apart when handling.
Using your level, mark your lines from the floor, making sure that the screen sits inside the lip of the shower base.
Position the U channel against the wall, on the lines.
Mark the position of the screw holes, then pilot drill the holes & secure with screws.
If you’re screwing into tiles or plasterboard, first reinforce the screws with nylon wall plugs.
1a/ Slide the fixed panel into the channel on the wall, then from inside the shower, drill a hole through the channel into the frame at the top of the panel & screw into place.
Hint: If you own a rivet gun, you can use this instead of the screws.
1b/ Repeat the steps above with the door panel. This is where your helper has to hold the door panel to stop it from expanding after you have placed it in the channel. We suggest you secure the door panel with 2 screws - one at the top & one at the bottom.
2/ Then put the channel on the door end of the fixed panel and secure with screws or rivets.
Now you can screw your handle into the pre-drilled holes in the door & slide the water deflector on the bottom.
Remember to keep hold of the door to stop it from expanding.
Once you have confirmed the panels are in the correct position, pilot drill the holes & screw them into place.
You will need to do this for both the fixed panels.
Gently expand the front to meet the fixed panel, then check that the door is plumb & level.
Once in the correct position secure with screws top & bottom.
Cap off the top of the wall channels.
Next seal the outer edges of the channels & fixed panels where they meet the wall & base surfaces.
Put masking tape down the inside of the shower, close to where the metal channels sit on the wall. Then run a thin bead of silicone down the join between the wall & the metal channel. Once the silicone’s done, peel off the tape. Allow the silicone 24 hours to dry & your shower is ready to use..

An extra $40 will be charged if you have porcelain tiles as the channels should be fitted on a day prior to swinging the door to allow the sililcone time to to cure. The quoted fees for are walls that are square & require no alterations for the shower screen to be fitted. Should any repairs or alterations be required, these would be billed as extras.
