Shower Screen Singapore | Acrylic Shower Screen & Tempered Glass Shower Screen - For HDB & Condo
Are a long day of work, most Singaporeans like me love to relax our tiring body with a hot shower to wash away all the stress from work. Hence our bathroom even though small is one of the most important spaces in our cozy HDB flat.
As HDB BTO flats are getting smaller in our land scare Singapore, our HDB flat sizes are shrinking along with the size of our bathroom. Hence many HDB home owners including me think that including a shower screen in our bathroom does not make much sense in term of space usage. However, without a shower screen in our bathroom, our bathroom floor will be wet after a shower. So unless, you have the energy or the discipline to wipe your bathroom floor dry after every shower, a shower screen is essential. This is because a wet floor in the bathroom can be very slippery hence is very dangerous for elderly or young children in our home. For elderly, a fall may come with serious consequences.
When home owner consider installing a shower screen in their HDB flat or condominium, shower curtain may be the first thing that come to their minds as shower curtain is the cheapest and does not take up much space in our small bathroom.
However, there are few disadvantages of a shower curtain
shower curtain does not provide full coverage, water will still splash out
shower curtain will turn moldy in the wet bathroom environment

Tempered glass is approximate four times stronger than standard glass. Unlike standard glass, which can shatter into jagged shards when broken, tempered glass fractures into small, relatively harmless pieces. Hence tempered glass is also known as safety glass. However tempered glass will still break when hit with a hard object and is vulnerable at the edges.
For all our shower screen, we only use tempered glass as the bathroom flooring is usually wet and hence higher chance of falling so tempered glass shower screen is a safer alternative as compared standard glass shower screen
Among the 4 types of shower screen panel, texture acrylic panel is the most popular for 4 main reasons
Acrylic will not break unlike glass hence it is safer if you have young children or elderly at home
Acrylic panel is around 4 times lighter than glass hence giving less burden to the shower screen roller mechanism thus acrylic panel shower screen tends to has a longer life span as compared to glass shower screen
Texture acrylic panel does not require a lot of cleaning attention
Texture acrylic panel shower screen is much cheaper as compared to design panel shower screen and tempered glass shower screen
# tempered glass shower screen has to be clean regularly to avoid formation of water mark
# clear acrylic panel shower screen need to be clean with micro fiber cloth to avoid being scratch
