If soil is still present after drying a non-abrasive cleaner with a pH of seven to eight may be used. Do not use scouring pads, sharp instruments, or acid-based cleansers to clean the shelf. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the labels of household cleaning products. To protect the finish of your bath box shelf you should only use products recommended for glass and anodized aluminum surfaces by the manufacturer of the cleaning product. If in doubt contact the manufacturer of the cleaning product.

FAQ

Positioning your niche at chest to eye-level is a good standard. This translates to a height of about 48 to 60 inches. Ideally, you’ll want to position your niche to fit between the studs which are usually located 16 inches apart. But many contractors can help you with planning the space for a more custom look.

The anti-scale treatment (AST) is a special treatment applied to the glass screens to make them smoother and therefore reduce water retention. Being an amorphous material, glass has a completely discontinuous molecular structure and its surface looks very irregular and rough at the microscopic level. With the AST anti-scale treatment these imperfections are filled, so the smooth glass surface retains far fewer drops of water or lime scale. This makes the shower easier to wipe dry and free from lime

Shower surrounds can be installed directly over securely fastened ceramic tile. Loose ceramic tiles and plastic tiles must be removed, and the walls will need to be sanded smooth before installation. In new installations, the enclosure should be applied over waterproof backer board.

Tempered glass is today considered essential for safety and its use is widely recommended. If glass is used for bathroom enclosures, tempered glass must be used BY LAW. Tempered glass is safe because, should it break, it shatters into tiny pieces without blunt edges, preventing serious lacerations or cuts and this protecting the user from physical injury. This shattering pattern is standardized and covered by UNE-EN 12150-2:2005 ERRATUM: 2011 Standard, and must be complied with by bathroom enclosures manufacturers.

The typical depth of a shower box shelf is 3.5 inches, the width of a wood stud. In a high rise building, the steel studs may be 2.5 inches deep and this should be considered. This is still wide enough for most bottles.
