Latest Updates - Shower Cabin News
New developments with our hydro shower cabins and pods offer this month, are the recent introduction of the Pure E range from Vidalux. Based upon their already popular Pure valve models, the Pure E provides various options in providing customers with an electric shower cabin.

Large shower cabins, pods and small shower cabin models are available in corner fitting sizes of 800mm x 800mm, 900mm x 900mm and 1000mm x 1000mm are the quadrant shaped models, with more spacious elongated shower cubicle measuring 1200mm x 800mm that comes in either a Left or Right hand style.
There are 6 Triton electric shower unit options for each Pure E model, so flexibility is certainly the key here from Vidalux. Check out the Pure E Electric Shower Cabins here.

Cabin, cubicle, pod....what's the difference?
You may have noticed when reviewing our models, the words pods and cabinets within our descriptive content, plus other terms such as cabins and enclosures. Indeed, also the references to cubicles and cubicals, units and so forth. From time to time, we do get asked...."so what's the difference" - between all these apparent different types of shower? Well the answer is....NOTHING really - they are simply the various, collective terms both the industry, our specific market and particularly the public, use for when searching for this particular style of all in one, self-contained and free standing type of showering product online. So now you know:)
Purchasing Advice For Shower Cabins.
The buying of a shower cabin, pod or cubicle is without doubt a substantial purchase for most people and with the large and growing volume of models, brands, suppliers and offers available online these days, those historic wise words of "getting what one pays for" is certainly applicable in this context. This not just in terms of the quality in the shower cabins supplied, but also the degree of reliability, customer service, pre and post sales support and the availability of replacement spare parts, should there be a problem with the shower cubicle in the future.
What other factors should be considered?
Although the price to be paid will be a major factor for many customers, all those other important elements should also be duly considered to ensure the best ovveral deal is secured, with regards to cost and in terms of product value and service.
Cheap shower cabins and cubicles is not something we sell here at Smart Price. However, what we are able to supply is top quality self-contained shower cabins at very competitive prices that are priced low based on high volume manufacturing, but without cutting corners on end product quality. Furthermore, us and our brand partners are likely among the largest and more successful suppliers and re-sellers in the UK with in excess of 12 years of specific experience within this product sector.
Other Shower Cabin Considerations
On an initial review, a shower cabin seen online may appear to be great value but do check the following is provided along with the purchase: a) Quality product with a good specification - see our manufacturing guide further down this article. b) Installation and Operational Guides for shower cabins provided c) A technical support Help Line number for direct advice regarding installations. d) After sales service provided e) The Warranty duration and terms f) The availability of replacement spare parts post warranty period.
A Manufacturing Specification Guide
Shower Glass:- The shower cabin, cubicle and enclosure models are compliant with ISO9001, CE and fitted with safetly glass. This between 5mm and 6mm and subjected to safety tests to ensure in circumstances where if the glass should break, that this will fragment into very small pieces, free of any sharp edges. Unless specified otherwise, this will apply to glass doors, front panels and rear panels if applicable.
Shower Frames:- In general, the outer frames on shower cabins and cubicles are manufactured in 1.2mm aluminium unless otherwise stated. This provides good stability and structural support and finishes can include polished or powder coated silver, black etc. On cheap shower cabins of inferior quality, check for frames made of plastic that have been paint sprayed to give the outwards appearance of aluminium as these are not as long lasting or sturdy.
Shower Trays:- The trays on most free-standing shower cabins are made from reinforced acrylic and should be further strengthened and supported by a steel frame underneath that is bonded to the tray and also incorporates adjustable feet for leveling purposes. Excluding ultra low tray versions, a shower tray base that is not supported on a steel frame can cause flexing and cracking plus the unbalancing of the occupant during use. Most trays come in a standard white finish and a good number of manufactures, can also supply an optional slatted floor insert that can be lifted in and out for cleaning purposes.
Shower Connections:- Shower cabins and cubicles require one hot and one cold supply, a waste outlet and if the unit has lights and FM radio etc; a 13amp power supply will also be needed. On units supplied through us, connections are behind the control tower - either in the corner on quadrant shower cabins or in the centre on rectangular models. Most suppliers include long 15mm flexible connectors for the hot and cold supply and a flexible waste pipe.
Shower Cabin Price Comparisons
When one first commences searching the web for a shower cabin or cubicle to purchase, it soon becomes apparent just how many suppliers and resources there are. These can likely include Insignia Outlet and Steam Shower Store, JTSpas and Victorian Plumbing to mention but a few.
The next realisation, is that many seem to sell at least some of the same enclosures and cabins which is also true. Now whilst the number of years trading online; reviews and feedback, plus service and support are all in our view, key factors in making your choice of where to buy, for many purchasers it is still the price to be paid, that is the main deciding factor.
