Setting the screen under the bath

Remove the screen from the acrylic bathtub without damaging the panel, an unprepared home master is almost impossible. You need to know the type of fastening. However, not everything is so difficult in the end, if you know some nuances.

  • If there are no supports between the bottom of the screen and the floor, then the panel is fixed in one of three ways: self.tapping screws, magnets or springs.
  • The supporting legs of the screen of the screen indicate its installation.
  • Direct fastening of the panel to the floor indicates the presence of spring clamps.

With such information, you can easily remove the screen.

Fastening with self.tapping screws. The panel hanging above the floor first of all should be inspected for the presence of plugs. If they are, then the problem is solved in two tricks:

Decorative plugs with a sharp blade are carefully removed; Self.tapping screws are displayed with an electric screwdriver.

Magnets. If there are no plugs, the panel is quietly going down. If small efforts are not enough to break the screen from the place, then it is on the magnets from below and latches from above. Remove simply. pull the top on yourself. At the same time, it is desirable to perform the operation in several hands, so as not to strongly distort the screen.

Springs. Pull the panel down and remove from under the side. After that, disconnect the springs with hooks.

Installation of dispersal. The legs are talking about the presence of a frame. In such options, the screen is attached to the acrylic bathta of the dispersal. To remove the panel, it is enough to screw the legs into the frame, and then pull for yourself.

Springing latches. From the spring clamps, the panel is removed in two doses:

  • The upper edge of the panel stretches to itself until the clamps are disconnected;
  • The screen rises up to output the tongue of the latch from the clamp attached to the floor.

Acrylic bath screen installation procedure

There are several options on how to install a screen on an acrylic bath. The easiest way is to fix the deaf, unusable panel. The most durable design will be required for rotary sashs. The design bought or made independently can be fixed to:

Sometimes you can see non.removable screens made of moisture.resistant drywall or brick and lined with tiles. Such indispensable designs can be beautiful, but satisfy the owners to the first breakdown of plumbing or clogging of the siphon.

Installation on self.tapping screws

To fix the decorative screen on self.tapping screws, a set of special mounts is required. It can be segments of a plastic or aluminum corner. They need to be fixed at the top on the rib of the stiffness of the acrylic bathtub, and below on the racks of the support frame or a horizontal profile, if it is.

After installing the mounts, attach the screen and apply a mark against each of them.

Drill the holes in the marks in the marked places and a conical crown or a large diameter drill, select the hats of self.tapping screws under the hats.

Scroll the dicks to fasteners, and install decorative plugs into the cuts of hats. If you could not find plugs on sale, then you can cut them yourself and put on glue.

On magnets

In order for the magnets to hold a decorative panel firmly, the presence of a steel frame or vertical stops is necessary, which are associated with the supporting design of the bath. The magnets themselves must be glued to the rear surface of the panel and then attach to the installed steel profile. In order to finally fix the screen, 2-3 clamps should be screwed to the bathtub stiffness.

On the springs

The screen mount to the acrylic bathtub on the springs is simple and reliable. Its device is based on the fact that springs are attached to the elements of the supporting cage of the bathtub, which will raise the screen, pressing it to the stiffener rib. The work is performed in the following sequence:

  • make the screen by the side and lift it up to the stop;
  • on the frame racks make the lower level of the panel;
  • transfer marks 30 mm above;
  • attach the lower part of the spring to the new marks and then the top will show the place to drill the hole under the hook at the rack;
  • On the back of the screen, glue the section of the corner with a drilled hole under the hook of the lower part of the spring;
  • Glue wooden bars to the side wall of the bath, which will not allow the panel to shift towards the bowl;
  • Install the springs, squeeze the screen down, get over the side and release.

The dimensions of the bars should be selected experimentally, given the thickness of the panel material.

On clamps

Floor spring clamps are used for bathtubs rounded or asymmetric shapes. To perform work, you will need fixing latches in addition to the clamps. The procedure for the attachment method is as follows:

  • Using a plumb line or a bubble level, apply a fishing line for a trimmer to the floor corresponding to the edge of the bathtub side;
  • Put the corner clamps on the floor along the drawn line and make the marks for drilling;
  • Drill the holes in the floor set the clamps and fix them on the dowels;
  • to the rib of the rigidity of the bathtub opposite the clamps, fasten the latches;
  • On the back of the panel, mark the location of the clamps and fasten the fasteners there;
  • Install the bottom of the screen into the clamps, and press the top of the screen tightly to the side, until the fixing click is fixed.

The main thing in this method is not to make a mistake with the markings in order to ensure the coincidence of all the elements of the fasteners.


To install the screen on the acrylic bathtub, it will be possible to make a strong frame at the ends of which the locking spacer screws on the supporting legs are installed.

The decorative panel is fixed to this frame using screws or glue. You need to get water into the bath. This is necessary in order to take into account the possible subsidence and more accurately determine the moment of the stop.

To install in place, get the finished screen by the side and, turning the screws, raise it until the upper edge rests on.

Drain the water and check the reliability of the installation.

Material: structural steel height, mm: 1003 width, mm: 830 depth, mm: 100 thickness of steel, mm: 0.8 maximum from goods: 3 warranty period: 1 year country: for acrylic bath: what is the peculiarity?

Most plumbing manufacturers supply decorative shields for it immediately in the kit. This is quite convenient if its bowl has a specific form. For example, make a screen for an angular acrylic bathtub with a rounded side of tile or plastic panels yourself is very problematic. In such a situation, it is better to use the finished option.

The most reliable models are offered by plumbing manufacturers from Portugal, Italy and Spain. Their screens are expensive, but are characterized by high quality characteristics and durability. Panels attached to the liability of economy class are usually quite flimsy structures, the life of which does not exceed a couple of years.

From ordinary decorative structures, interior panels intended for plumbing from acrylic differ in two parameters:

These elements are made from plastic panels covered with the same acrylic on top as the bowl itself. This provides a small weight of the structure, aesthetic appearance, an ideal combination with the plumbing itself and the convenience of care. Of course, all this is true only for original, branded products. Manufacturers of economy class products often do not apply such a coating, but simply pick up plastic to match the main product. Such a product quickly loses its appearance, in addition, it turns out to be less durable and after a couple of years it acquires a curved shape. Therefore, before buying this design, make sure of its coating.

An acrylic bathtub screen mounts have a specific design. They involve the installation under the side of the plumbing. On the lower side of the side there are special embedded, to which squeezing plates holding a decorative shield are screwed. Naturally, on other materials, such an operation is impossible to perform.

Varieties of screens for a bath from acrylic

From the point of view of the design, the entire existing assortment of decorative panels for bathrooms can be divided into the following categories:

  • deaf, completely overlapping access to the bowl of plumbing;
  • swing.shaped, equipped with swing doors;
  • sliding, opening on the principle of a wardrobe;
  • removable, devoid of doors, completely removed;
  • With drawers.

The most convenient option is a sliding screen. Under the acrylic bathtub, as well as for any other, you must have access to maintain and repair communications to it. With deaf and even removable models, this is quite difficult. And you can install swing structures not in every bathroom, since they need an additional area to open the doors.

How to correct the screen under the acrylic bath

Installation of the screen for the acrylic bath can be done independently without inviting specialists for this. The main thing is to observe three basic requirements in the process.

Firstly, the combination of the edges of the panel with an side of the plumbing bowl and the floor should be airtight if possible. This will prevent water from entering the joints and the development of mold and fungus in them. Tighting can be ensured as follows:

Tip: many interior panels are equipped with adjusting screws to change their height. In the absence of sealing materials, the installation of the screen on the acrylic bathtub should be carried out so that the gaps between its edges and other surfaces are minimal. You can achieve this just by adjusting the height by choosing the desired position of the screws.

Secondly, the decorative panel, regardless of the type of its design, should provide unhindered access to the pipes. If the screen for the acrylic bathtub is sliding or swirling, there will be no problems. For a deaf screen, provide a removable panel located near communications.

And thirdly, the screen is mounted to the acrylic bathtub so that neither the crane nor water pipes acts in it the role of the supporting structure. In the models that are equipped with the default plumber, such a situation cannot arise. But if you decide to make a decorative shield yourself, be sure to keep in mind this moment.

As a rule, the screen is installed under the acrylic bathtub at the very last stage of the repair, when all the decoration of the premises has already been completed. If for any reason you need to do this earlier, try to protect the decorative design from repair pollution. To do this, wrap its doors and a frame with a thin cling film. It adjacent to any surfaces well, so you will not need either tape or other fixing materials.

The plates are installed using the fasteners that are coming with the decorative panel so that the distance between their edge and the edge does not exceed 2 mm.

Next, the bath is installed in the place allotted for it. Using adjusting screws on the legs of the bracket, the position of the bowl is aligned in level, and also lift it to the desired height, taking into account the dimensions of the decorative panel. Then you should connect all the pipes and check their performance. If at this stage you find that the water does not go into the drain, check if the bowl is installed, change its slope and height.

Before fixing the screen to the acrylic bathtub, marking and fitting is carried out. Mark a water.based marker or barn with a barn.out pencil. Lean the screen to the bowl, then start its upper edge under its side so that it falls between the side and the squeezed plate. Comers the decorative panel along the axial lines of the bracket, make sure that everything is installed exactly. Then, using screws, fasten the lower part of the screen to the elements of the bracket. Self.tread heads after that can be closed with decorative plugs.

Installation of the screen under the acrylic bathtub is completely easy. But first of all, it should be noted that in stores you will not be able to find a screen that will be ideal for all outlines of your acrylic bathtub.

If you want your bathroom to look elegant and finished, you will have to work hard on creating the screen.

Acrylic bath is the most important item in the bathroom

Also, the properties of acrylic should be recalled separately. During the creation and installation of the screen, do not forget that an acrylic bath is more fragile and tender than steel and cast iron. It can easily be damaged by a simple careless movement. So be extremely careful.

Creating the screen

The design of the screen assembled by your own hands primarily depends on the type of installation of the acrylic bathtub. As you know, an acrylic bath can be installed on special legs. However, such a support is not always enough for her. Therefore, often brickwork is collected as an additional support. This, in turn, means that for chemicals, and bath accessories there will be much less space.

The main advantage of the screen is the creation of a barrier that will protect the bathroom from moisture and damp

In the event that you plan to create a screen not of brick, but from less capital materials, you will definitely need a metal, frame. In any other room, the frame could be made of wood, but for the bathroom this material is categorically not suitable. The screen frame is mounted under the acrylic bath in the following order:

How to Replace a Bathtub (Step By Step)

  • At the beginning, using the construction level, it should be noted the places where the frame will be attached to the bath.
  • After that, all the necessary measurements are made.
  • Based on the measurement results, you cut a metal profile into the parts you need and fix them.
  • Repairmen professionals recommend dismantle the bath before assembling the frame. After dismantling, you set the frame to its rightful place and draw the appropriate marking for facing materials.
  • Now it’s time to cut the panels that will serve as the cladding of your screen. And attach them to the frame.

It should be noted that the mount to the acrylic bathroom is attached directly to its side. This is done extremely carefully so as not to damage and not scratch it.

Wood.fiber screen

Torn.fiber slabs for creating a screen for acrylic bath are just perfect. They are strong enough, tolerate moisture well, and temperature surges. The density of the material, and its special impregnation do not allow molds and fungi to multiply on the surface of the wood.fiber plate, which is also very useful.

The assembly of the screen made of wood.fiber slab is almost similar to the assembly of kitchen cabinets, with the only difference being that the frame and frame should be made of metal. The first, horizontal part of the frame must be attached to the wall in height, it should be under the edge of the bath. Fasten the frame due to dowels, or ordinary screws. Between themselves, parts of the frame are connected using furniture corners and all the same screws. When installing the front of the frame, you must take into account the possibility of accessing all communications.

After the installation of the frame is completed, you have to sheathed with the boots a wood.fiber slab. Experts advise thinking about shelves and boxes for household chemicals in advance. They need to be installed before lining. The process of installing the screen is completed by the door installation.

DIY bathtub dismantling

During the overhaul of the bathroom, it is necessary to dismantle all plumbing items that are in it. One of the most time.consuming stages is the removal of the bath.

The advantage of the acrylic bath is that it has high strength, low weight and it is easy to install.

Such work should be approached as accurately as possible, because dismantled plumbing after a series of restoration work can be used again, for example, in a country house.

The sequence of work

Before proceeding to remove the bath, it is necessary to remove all the extra from the premises. This is not only about cabinets, bedside tables and shelves, but also about plumbing equipment. It is necessary to remove the mixer, sink, and if the bathroom is combined, then the toilet should also be dismantled.

You can also remove the door to the bathroom from the hinges, since during the removal of the bathtub from the room, it can scratch the door leaf. In extreme cases, you can protect the door with an air-pussy film or soft cloth.

When carrying out work on removing the bath, you need to have the following tools:

When dismantling the bath, it is necessary to adhere to the following sequence:

  • turn it off from the sewer system;
  • remove the old drain siphon;
  • free the edges of this device from under the tile and skirting board;
  • make a bath out of the room.

At the first stage of the work, the bath is disconnected from the sewer. In this case, you need to completely remove the drain siphon. If a modern plastic siphon is installed on the bath, then the process of dismantling will not take you much time and effort. It will be necessary to unscrew only two screws placed in the drain and overflow neck. After that, the siphon will disappear, and you will only need to disconnect it from the sewage.

If a metal siphon is installed on the bath, then it will need to spend more time and effort on its removal, because, as a rule, its details rust to such an extent that no key will help you. Here we need a more rigid and rude approach. the use of corner grinders. over, you will have to work in a very uncomfortable position. you will need to climb under the bath and cut off the old siphon as close as possible to its bottom.

The final dismantling of the old siphon is carried out after the bath is taken out of the room and turns upside down. In this case, you need to take into account the following nuances:

  • Use the saw-angular grinder- with its help, the drain neck is first cut off, and then overflow;
  • Cut the siphon as close as possible to the bath, because it will facilitate the task of dismantling it;
  • There is no need to resort to the help of kerosene or WD40 in the work, since in practice they do not help at all.

After removing the siphon, the process of dismantling the bath will go at a faster pace. At the next stage, the edges of the bathtub from the tile should be released in such a way as to less damage its enamel.

It is not worth carrying out this procedure using increased physical strength, because it can only harm the state of your bath.

First you need to carefully dismantle the tile around the entire perimeter of plumbing equipment, then clear the space between it and the wall and only then try to disconnect the bath from the wall.

Removing a cast.iron bathtub is a very difficult thing. the main problem is its weight. If acrylic or steel equipment can be taken out of the room without any problems, then when removing the cast.iron model, it will be necessary to resort to assistance. You will need at least two pairs of strong hands, patience and ingenuity, since it will be necessary to reflect well, how to turn the cast.iron bath so that it easily goes into the doorway.

The technology of dismantling the acrylic bathtub is somewhat different from the removal of a cast.iron sample. Additionally, it will be necessary to cut a layer of silicone sealant pumped into the gap between the bathroom and the walls, unscrew the hooks pressing it against the walls, and only after that make the device to make the device out of the room.

For repeated installation of acrylic equipment, the entire silicone remaining on its edges must be removed using special solvents. The process of removal with a knife is not recommended, because you can damage the enamel.

If your acrylic bathtub is installed on special supports, then they will need to be dismantled and disassembled into several parts. For these purposes, you will need a set of wrench and electric screwdriver.

The dismantling of the old bath is not a procedure requiring special skills and skills. Any owner will be able to perform such work, the main thing is to approach the process slowly, with all responsibility, as well as without violating the dismantling technology and basic safety regulations.

DIY screen setting options

For independent installation of a decorative screen, you need to make a frame binding of a bowl. Rectangular and square bowls can be covered with brick, sheathed with wood or metal profile. To install the screen on an acrylic bath of round or asymmetric outlines, only a galvanized or aluminum profile can be used, in which you can make a number of cuts and bend along the desired line.

Ceramic tiles or mosaic can be put on brickwork. Frames made of wood and profile are sheathed with drywall or other sheet material. In the design of the frame, it is necessary to provide for the presence of an audit hatch to ensure access to engineering communications. You can refuse to masonry tiles if you use leaf plastic for the screen.
