The bath screen is an excellent alternative to the shower curtain, which not only prevents water from splashing outside but also saves space. And how to choose a bath screen is also a science. Before buying a bath screen, you need to consider the following factors: type, material, size, thickness.

Here is the content list:

  • Type

  • Material

  • Size

  • Thickness


Bath screens can be roughly divided into three types: single panel, double panel, and folding screen. Most of the bath screens in our company are folding screens because this kind of bath screen can maximize space utilization and facilitate storage. And it has low requirements for bathroom space, which is suitable for small bathrooms. While maintaining the normal entry of water, it can also prevent the water from seeing outside the bath screen.


There are many different types of materials that can be used for a bath screen. Some of the most common types of materials used for bath screens include glass, plastic, metal, and mesh.

Glass is a popular choice for bath screens because it is durable and easy to clean. However, glass can be expensive, and it is also susceptible to shattering if it is not treated properly. Plastic is another popular choice for bath screens because it is often less expensive than glass and can be easily molded into different shapes. However, plastic is not as durable as glass and can yellow over time.

Metal is a popular choice for bath screens because it is very durable and gives a stylish look to any bathroom. However, metal can be difficult to clean and keep free of rust. Mesh is a popular choice for bath screens because it allows water to pass through while still providing privacy. However, mesh can tear easily and does not provide as much privacy as other materials.


Before buying a bath screen, you need to measure the width and length of the bathroom space and the width and length of the bathtub. Record these data, and note down the structure of the bathtub or bathing space and the surrounding walls to find the most suitable type of bath screens. The screen usually does not reach the ceiling, but it needs to be high enough to prevent water from entering the bathtub or showering space. Add 3-5 inches to the height of the tallest person in your home to get the ideal bath screen height. You can also add 5-10 inches to this height to accommodate other guests who may be taller.


The general rule of thickness is that the thicker the safer. As the thickness of the glass increases, the overall weight of the shower room will increase accordingly, which will have higher requirements for the quality of related hardware. The thickness of bath screens glass is usually chosen to be 3-8 mm. The thickness of the bath screenglass is related to the shape of the shower room. For the linear shower room, you can choose 8 mm or 10 mm glass. Or arc-shaped glass, which has modeling requirements for glass, generally 6mm is appropriate, too thick is not suitable for modeling, and the stability is not as good as 6 mm thick.
