The circa door on tiled walls offers an extremely easy-to-clean shower screen solution: the modern curved sliding screen with clips at the bottom of the central panel allows it to swing inwards for ease of cleaning; the curved space allows for plenty of room to move about while cleaning; and the tiled walls provide durable surfaces for a complete, easy-to-clean solution.

Our 900 × 900mm wide model works particularly well in a small bathroom; it also comes in a 1000 × 1000mm size.

Shower Cleaning

It’s a thankless job cleaning glass showers; someone has to do the dirty work, but now you can put all that hard work behind you.

Our secret shower cleaning weapon of choice is Shower Clean. What is it about Shower Clean? Well, it’s the quick and easy way to clean soap, grease and grime deposits off your shower door, walls and tray.

For a longer lasting clean shower, you can use Enduro Shield which provides a protective coating over the glass.

Don’t use cakes of soap

To avoid white streaks from developing on shower glass doors, avoid using cakes of soaps in the shower. Glass is porous, and cakes of soap can get into these tiny holes in the glass. Showerite recommends using liquid soap instead.

To clean and protect showers, we recommend using Shower Clean, and then coating the glass with Enduro Shield.
