MEASURING

There are 14 shapes and sizes of Showerdome® shower top to fit most square, triangular, round front or rectangular showers.

All Showerdomes are manufactured on blanks that are bigger than required, and are trimmed onsite to fit your shower exactly, by whoever is doing your installation.

Some installations will be more difficult due to the shower design and we strongly recommend that in these instances you use a trained installer. www.showerdome.com.au/contact-showerdome

In order to provide accurate measurements – follow these easy steps:-

• Stand INSIDE the shower cubicle
• Place your tape measure in the middle back corner (where the 2 walls meet)
• Measure from the corner to the inside of the framework on each side
• Ensure you advise the shower shape (square, triangle, curved)

INSTALLATION

Yes you can. You will need to confident cutting and drilling acrylic and will require some basic tools.

Please go to https://showerdome.com.ai/installation/ to see the list of tools required and watch the video of an installation.

A standard Showerdome® shower top installation takes a trained installer approximately 90 minutes.

Most importantly, read the detailed instruction booklet provided. Double check your measurements before attempting to cut the acrylic.

If the temperature is below 10 degrees Celsius, we suggest you attempt to warm the Showerdome® shower top either by standing it in the warmest room in the house, or next to an oil filled heater for some time prior to cutting.

Once ready to cut, you must ensure that what you are cutting to waste is fully supported while making the cut. If you allow the acrylic you are cutting away to hang down, it will cause feather cracks on the actual dome.

MAINTENANCE

Apart from gathering dust on the top, it is unlikely that your Showerdome® shower top will not need much cleaning. You can use a long reach feather duster to flick any dust off.

We recommend using a microfiber cloth with a standard glass cleaner if you feel the Showerdome® shower top needs a more thorough clean. Many of them have anti-static properties (like Pledge), which assist with repelling the dust from settling on the top.

Do NOT use strong cleaners, scrubbing devices or abrasives of any nature.

Every Showerdome® shower top comes with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE to stay crystal clear.

GENERAL

All Showerdome® shower tops are blown to a height of 150mm at the apex of the dome. Therefore we recommend you have clearance of a minimum of 160mm to successfully install a Showerdome® shower top.

No. With a correctly fit Showerdome® shower top, there will be no steam, and no condensation in your bathroom to fog up your mirrors.

Absolutely not. Although there will be some misting on the underside of the Showerdome® shower top (as there will be on the glass wall) there will never be enough to create droplets that could wet your hair.

Simple – there isn’t any! Shower steam (or more accurately – ‘moisture laden air’) is only created when the cold air in your bathroom, meets the warm moist air that your shower creates. It is ONLY when these 2 air masses mix, that steam is created.

When you fit a Showerdome® shower top, you are putting a barrier between these 2 components, and therefore NO shower steam is created.

There is approximately 2 cubic metres of cold air within your shower cubicle when you first turn the shower on.
As the water warms up, this cold air will condensate, and will seek out the coldest surface. In this instance, the glass or acrylic shower box.

From the outside looking in, it may appear that the shower is steamed up – however the cubicle itself is completely clear and free of steam as there is simply no more cold air to generate any.

No. We strongly advise you to NOT use an extractor fan while showering if you have a Showerdome® shower top installed.

An extractor fan pulls more cold air into the room, and this is what fuels the creation of steam.

No. We strongly advise you to keep your bathroom windows closed while showering if you have a Showerdome® shower top installed.
