When you finally decide to purchase a shower screen, the excitement fades and the reality settles in: how do I install a shower screen? Installing a shower screen, whether it be framed, semi-frameless or frameless, is never an easy task which is why Panorama Shower Screens offers an installation service with every product offered. However, this does not stop customers from installing it themselves, especially since many are home with not much to do. At Panorama Shower Screens, we do not recommend that you attempt an at-home installation.
Why not make your shower screen installation a DIY project? Many things can go wrong, including injury, so you should leave it to the professionals. Customers should never install shower screen products on their own, even if you’re using an online guide. Remember that each product is different and varies between brands and companies, so even with the help of a tutorial you can put yourself and the product at risk. In this article, we’ll get into more detail about why you should not install a shower screen on your own.
Why you should never attempt a shower screen installation in your Sydney bathroom
You can get injured
Shower screens, whether framed, semi-frameless or frameless, contain extremely heavy components. Installation requires the lifting and moving of these components to fit them into place. If you drop or misstep, you can seriously damage yourself. When the glass is broken, it can seriously harm you; if you drop one of the components on your feet, you can also injure yourself. There are several ways that you hurt yourself during the installation process (including the handling of tools), so we highly recommend that you use our trained professional installers.
You may install the shower screen wrong and affect its functionality
Installing a shower screen requires the symmetrical alignment of many different components. If these components are not properly lined up, it can affect the functionality of the shower screen. A shower screen is fitted with different seals and fitted in a specific way to avoid leaking water on the outside of the shower. To install this correctly, components to be aligned very specifically, and can easily be fitted poorly. If this occurs, you may have a shower screen that leaks water all over your bathroom floor.
You can damage the shower screen
The shower screen is made of glass, which while durable, is also breakable. During installation, it is very easy to chip, nick or crack the glass, especially if you drop or hit it on the sides of your bathroom walls. In some cases, this can impair the functionality of your shower screen as well as affect its sleek and modern aesthetic. Our trained installers will know how to move with the product’s components, even in the smallest of bathrooms, to ensure its safety as well as yours.
It may take longer for you to install it yourself
Even if you have time because you’re home most of the time, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll want to spend hours on the installation of a shower screen. Our trained installers know how to efficiently install all of our products.

You may affect the way your shower screen looks
As mentioned previously, alignment during a shower screen installation is incredibly important for the functionality of your screen, however, it is also important to the screen’s appearance. Misalignment of the glass screen can completely ruin any pattern on the glass screen and make it appear out of place. This is difficult to correct on your own and you may resort to calling one of our installers. Our advice? Get it right from the start: utilise our professional installers.
