Shower Screen Singapore | Acrylic Shower Screen & Tempered Glass Shower Screen - For HDB & Condo
After a long day of work, most Singaporeans 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 or condominium unit.
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

Annealed glass is normal glass that will break into big pieces which may result in fatal wounds. Hence we do not use annealed glass in our showerscreen as 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.
Tempered glass can be made from annealed glass via a thermal tempering process. The glass is placed onto a roller table, taking it through a furnace that heats it well around 620 °C .The glass is then rapidly cooled with forced air drafts while the inner portion remains free to flow for a short time.
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.
In Singapore, most showerscreen are made using tempered glass. If you want a even safer alternative, you can opt for laminated glass showerscreen. Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by a thin interlayer.
In term of pricing tempered glass showerscreen is cheaper as compared to laminated glass showerscreen hence tempered glass showerscreen is still the most common type of showerscreen in Singapore.
If you do not want glass showerscreen, you can also opt for acrylic panel showerscreen which we will share with your more below.
Among the 4 types of shower screen panel, texture acrylic panel is the most popular for 4 main reasons
Acrylic panel shower screen 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, tempered glass shower screen or laminated glass shower screen
# tempered glass or laminated shower screen has to be clean regularly to avoid formation of water mark
# if you want a nicer design shower screen and is reluctant to get a tempered glass shower screen because you have young children or old folks at home, you can consider our attractive premium shower screen with design panel or laminated glass showerscreen for a slightly higher price.

Aluminium frame showerscreen does not require a kerb hence aluminium frame showerscreen is optimal for homeowners who do not have a kerb in their bathroom now. Construction of kerb in Singapore will cost around $300. Hence installing aluminium frame showerscreen is more cost effective as compared to installing 10 mm frameless showerscreen in Singapore.
You can see from the installation photo below that aluminium frame showerscreen can be installed with or without a kerb.
If you have a pipes cutting across the showerscreen, we can overcome it by adding an aluminum section and accommodate for the pipes at a slight additional cost.

Aluminum Frame Fixed Panel Showescreen
If your bathroom is really very small, you may want to consider installing just a fixed panel showerscreen.
Aluminum frame fixed panel with tempered glass can comes in different sizes and in different frame thickness. However because it is only supported on one side, it will be slightly shacky when you hit it.
Hence if you have young children or eldery at home, I will recommend full showerscreen which has better support.

Frame-less Tempered Glass Shower Screen With Stainless Steel Support Bar
For non standard shaped frame-less showerscreen like diamond shape or rectangle shaped shower screen, a stainless steel support bar at the top is recommended for additional support
Frame-less Shower Screen Required a Kerb or Aluminum Raise Section For Installation
Aluminum frame shower screen does not required a kerb or aluminum raise section for installation
However for frame-less tempered glass shower screen, you can either construct a concrete kerb or install an additional aluminum raise section at the bottom to prevent the water from splashing out.
# The additional cost of constructing an aluminum raise section for standard size will be additional $150. The photo below shows how the frame-less shower screen is installed with the aluminum raise section.
We have both swing and sliding frameless tempered glass shower screen.
However in term of price point, tempered glass swing shower screen is cheaper than tempered glass sliding shower screen as we need to use high quality roller to support the weight for the 10 mm tempered glass.
