BATHROOM SCREEN (part 3)
AN ANGULAR BATH
If your bathtub has a non-standard rectangular shape, then the screen can be made to fit the angle. For this, you can also use drywall. The frame is made of a metal profile. Incisions are made on it, and then any shape is attached to it. In this case, 2 similar profiles should be made. To strengthen the frame, vertical profiles must be mounted. Also, the frame is installed with a small indentation from the edge of the side of the bath. This will allow to install the facing material (tile) on one level with the bathroom.As for the drywall itself, when screwing it, it is important to carefully give it a curved shape. There are two options for how to do this. The first is to make cuts on the drywall with the same pitch and bend it gently. Also, the top layer of cardboard can be wet and put at a slight angle to the wall. Gradually, under its mass, it will acquire the desired shape.
The first option is more practical if the bending angle is too large.
This type of screen also has its own distinctive features. For example, finished sliding products are on sale today. However, not in all cases they fit the size of a bathtub already purchased and installed. Moreover, for acrylic bathtubs often come in a set of acrylic screens that are suitable exclusively for a specific model of the bathtub. But in this case, the screen turns dull. Such sliding products are not made. Therefore, we suggest you consider the option of manufacturing a sliding screen based on the finished design.

To do this, you must have a guide along which the door will move. You will also need to cut the panel into two parts. One of them can be motionless, and the second mobile. However, both parts can be movable. In this case, the guide should have two lines for moving the doors. Thus, a frame is made on which the guide should be fixed under the side of the bath and on the floor. A guide is mounted on it and doors are installed. Without fail, handles are attached to the door, for which it will be possible to move the door. In this case, you can make a sliding plastic screen.
