Shower Screens Online has a wide range of custom made semi frameless and frameless shower screens. We also have a large range of shower screen hardware and can custom design and manufacture a shower screens for just about any application. All our showers creens are installed by fully qualified glaziers.

Some of our shower screens are available with a unique protective film. This film is applied to the glass which protects the glass from scratching and, should the glass break for any reason, it will keep the glass in tact. This feature is unique to Shower Screens Online.
