Designed to complement the rising demand for wet-rooms and low shower trays, the Beam range of semi-frameless shower enclosures from Mira Showers – the UK’s leading manufacturer of showering products and accessories – combines both prestige styling and value for money. With an increased height of 1.9m from the top of the tray, the enclosures are not only consistent with contemporary bathroom design chic, but are also tall enough to obviate the obstruction possible when a traditional height enclosure is ‘dropped’ to the floor or set on a low tray.

The upmarket appearance has been achieved without compromising ease of installation as each wall profile is adjustable to up to 29mm, while the doors are supplied ‘un-handed’, meaning they are easily reversible for left and right hand opening. This means installers can deliver a clean, professional installation in a minimum of time and with minimum disruption.

Each enclosure is supplied with all the hallmarks of quality: a 10 year guarantee; power shower approval; and the chrome finish demanded by 90% of consumers wanting this type of product.

Combining contemporary styling with practicality and easy maintenance, Beam range of shower enclosures feature Easy-clean coated glass and semi-frameless side panels and includes models to suit every situation and taste with no fewer than eight different formats including: pivot doors, bifold doors, sliding doors, side panels, quadrants, pentagon, wetroom divider panels and walk-in.

Each door style features mechanisms to ensure trouble-free operation. Dual-roller bogies ensure smooth and consistent performance of sliding doors (including quadrants). Bi-fold models incorporate a planet gear mechanism that correctly aligns the door, while the adjustable ball catch used on the pivot door offers additional installation flexibility.

The pivot and bi-fold doors comprise a 6mm safety glass frameless door, use 4mm framed inline panels and are available in eight sizes from 760 to 1700mm. The sliding door model comes in two sizes – 1000 and 1200mm – with a 6mm safety glass frameless door.

The quadrant format features 5mm toughened safety glass and frameless centre opening doors fitted with a double roller to give a consistent slide movement and is available in four sizes: 800, 900, 1000 x 800, 1200 x 900mm. Two sizes of pentagon enclosures – 900 x 900 or 1200 x 900mm – can be assembled by combining pivot or bi-fold with pentagon panel pack of 4mm framed glass side panels.

Mira’s own ‘Slide & Lock’ system means there is no need to drill the frame, so adjustment is easy and simplifies installation. ‘Slide & Lock’ comprises a ‘square U’ wall channel profile that incorporates an innovative fixing mechanism that allows for a huge 29mm of adjustment on out-of-true walls. The shower panel is offered into the ‘U’ and – when square and level – is secured with a simple quarter-turn from an Allen key.

This same ‘Slide & Lock’ mechanism enables pivot doors to be hung accurately and quickly because it is incorporated into the pivot blocks. If the width of the wall channel needs to be extended, an 18mm filler kit is also available.

The semi-frameless 6mm safety glass side panels that are combined with pivot, bi-fold or sliding doors to create enclosures are supplied in four sizes: 700, 760, 800 and 900mm. A 400mm framed inline panel with 4mm safety glass is also available.

Featuring 8mm toughened safety glass and a square section bracing bar, the wetroom divider panels stand 1950mm high from top of tray and are supplied in four sizes: 800, 900, 1000 and 1200mm.

Manufactured using 5mm safety glass, the walk-in panels can be installed with or without a tray or with its own end panel to create a cubicle. Available in two sizes - 1400 and 1700mm – these panels stand 1900mm high from top of tray.

All Mira shower enclosures are built to last and all the designs have been rigorously tested. Doors are tested for 32,000 slam cycles – equivalent to 20 years use by a family of four showering daily. Similarly, every panel is tested toBSEN14428+A1 (2008) which represents the impact of being hit by a 20 stone person falling over.

Through developing the Beam range of shower enclosures Mira now offers the complete enclosure installation package. Compatible with Mira’s Flight shower trays – by far the most popular brand in the UK – the new Beam enclosures raise the bar in terms of affordable style, choice and ease of installation.
