Post Subject: Shower Cubicle height issues

Hi, I am currently refurbishing a 1980 narrow boat and have hit a snag with the cubicle I have bought that is 30mm to tall for the relatively low ceiling height! Can you recommend any suppliers who make cubicles around 1700 to 1750mm high that don't cost an arm & a leg? Cheers

I am sorry but I am not going to Google around for you because I suspect what you want will come under the "specials" banner from most suppliers and that always adds a good premium to the price. The same is true if it turns out to have the title "Marine stuck to it. You may do better searching for caravan shower cubicles but they may be a bit small. AS you are only talking about an inch and a quarter have you investigated dropping the tray so the top of its upstand is just above floor level? Is this any help:- http://www.canalworld.net/forums/index.php?showt opic=45593 Tony Brooks

Thanks Tony, I have only found 1 supplier who does lower level cubicles and they are approx double the cost of regular height ones. I am now looking at cutting the frame down and using 6mm clear polycarbonate but the cost of that is eye watering as well !

Have you thought about making the whole room a wet room so no cubical is involved or lining three walls with a waterproof material (vinyl flooring has been discussed elsewhere) and using a larger shower tray and simple curtain. Tony Brooks
