Found 24th JunEdited by:"snoopy18"
Looking to buy a new cubicle, where's the best place to buy one?
Ive looked in b and q, wickes and local bathroom store, which came in dearest at £600.
Budget is up to about £600, I am looking for a good one so this can increase. 800x800 square.

I'm in the trade and EBay does offer some great buys. I usually choose 6mm glass ones due to weight, and acrylic capped composite style trays. Again nothing wrong with a stone tray but they are very heavy.

Hi thanks for reply,any particular make /seller you recommend or can you link to one
I was thinking of 8mm for robustness
I have a Roman shower enclosure - a hinged door and side panel. Had it for nearly 4 years and it is still in as new condition - would recommend. Mine is 8mm glass,

Bought mine at a local Bathroom specialist - they demonstrated the quality of the Roman brand compared to others in terms of the hinges and frames - was very noticeable once pointed out.
Regarding trays I would say they are all similar. I just lay a level 18mm wbp ply down, then seal with a pva solution, and the once dry stick the tray down with silicon.
Regarding screens Lakes are reasonable. However I have to confess many of my customers are on a budget so hard to compare with the higher end stuff. Thankfully non of my customers have called me back regarding tray and screen issues so I can only assume they are ok.

Have you heard of the kartelli brand? any good?

is lakes a brand or a ebay shop?

Lakes is a brand. I have not heard of Kartelli however that is not to say I haven't fitted one. Also when screwing the frames together an impact driver is a godsend, for years I struggled with a drill driver. So you may want to get one of those too.

Someone will be fitting it for me, just want to buy something that still looks good on a few years

High quality and high price = Matki. 10 years on, our looks excellent. Probably double the price but worth it.

A friend recently bought 2 showers from Victorian Plumbing and had to send both back after an unpleasant fight about who pays from goods that are Not Fit for Purpose etc. Not only that but she never realised the bar across the top of the shower was high enough for a 5'6" lady but far too low for someone over 6'.

The moral of the story, as ever, is put in the legwork and go see them items before buying.

But whatever you buy, use a Credit Card to ensure your S75 rights that mean you can hold the credit card company equally liable for any defect
