How do you compare enclosure options to ensure that you select the best one for the job?
HERE ARE OUR TOP-TIPS FOR CHOOSING A SHOWER ENCLOSURE…
- TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE
Save yourself (and your customer) time and money by getting the job done quickly. Select a product that offers installer-friendly fi tting options, for example part or pre-assembly. One enclosure option would be Coram’s Optima ‘Quad’, which is partly assembled and has a patented system designed specifi cally for ‘One Man Fit’ within an estimated super-fast installation time of just 45 minutes!
- QUALITY IS IMPORTANT
As an installer, your reputation rests on both the quality of your workmanship and also on the products that you fi t. Even the most profi cient installer cannot provide a high-quality installation when working with low-quality products. Opt for a manufacturer who exhibits reliability. If your customer is price-conscious and expects top-quality on a budget, consider Coram’s GB range of enclosures, which is manufactured from high quality materials in their UK, based factory.
- DETAILS MATTER
There are a huge variety of enclosures available in the UK and the details differ enormously. Be aware of manufacturer’s unique features – some make installation considerably easier!
WATCH OUT FOR:
- Pre-assembled or part-assembled options
- Seals that have been pre-cut to size
- Standard size screws
- Availability of parts and spares
- Products (particularly larger sizes of enclosure)
- Customer care or advice helpline that can be erected and fi tted in-situ
- A good, well-written and illustrated instruction manual
- Next day delivery
