The original “shower door as art” will see widespread distribution in the U.K.

Jacksonville, FL (Aug. 21, 2017) – Coastal Shower Doors is pleased to announce a new partnership with theshowerlab™, the U.K.’s leading manufacturer of frameless glass shower screens available in the market today. The new partnership reflects Coastal’s commitment to overseas expansion while offering exceptional service and distribution for builders, designers, architects and homeowners.

The partnership, which went into effect Aug. 10, brings together two powerhouses in the world of bath and shower enclosures. Founded in 1972, Coastal Shower Doors has a long history of innovation, including the 2015 launch of the original Gridscape™ series. The first of its kind, Gridscape was inspired by industrial factory windows. Mullions that are customized to form an unlimited number of grid-configurations characterize the series. The door stands out as a bold bath centerpiece in diverse settings, from modern industrial to farmhouse, nautical to English cottage. Essex-based theshowerlab™ offers more than 60 years of combined industry expertise, with upwards of 150 retail showrooms across the U.K. Both companies specialize in catering to not only design focused consumers but professional designers, architects, hotel chains, high-end construction companies and home builders.

“We had many choices when it came to selecting a U.K. distributor,” said Patrick Cobb, director of sales and marketing at Coastal. “theshowerlab™ stood out as both a market leader and as a team aligned with our values of pushing the boundaries of artistry and innovation while never losing sight of the end customer experience.”

Alex Cooper, Sales Director at theshowerlab™, noted that while there are several “me too” imitators of the Gridscape 1 and Gridscape 2 true- and full-divided light doors, high-end designers, builders and homeowners understand the value of selecting the original, proven product.

“theshowerlab™ partnership with Coastal Showers’ Gridscape series offers the U.K. market an innovative, on-trend product line which enhances our already established portfolio,” stated Cooper. “This is an exciting addition and one we feel ultimately creates great value for our customers.”

The partnership marks the second step in Coastal’s push to expand to a more international audience. In early January, the company hired Europe Sales Manager, Sergio Marco. Based in La Rioja, Spain, Marco is responsible for developing a distribution network across Europe and was a key player in the bringing Coastal and theshowerlabs together.

Gridscape products will be available through Coastal by theshowerlab™ in mid-October, 2017. Retailers and showrooms may contact the company to reserve sales space for showroom displays.

Dubnium 11 Frameless Shower Screen

This Dubnium 11 Frameless Shower Screen was manufactured from four individual, made to measure pieces of 10mm clear toughened safety glass, to build a truly bespoke frameless glass shower enclosure to suit the clients bathroom design.


The challenge of the sloped ceiling lead to this particular frameless shower screen requiring a shorter return panel and for the right hand inline panel needing to be cut at an angle to follow the line of the ceiling. This frameless shower screen features 10mm Clear safety glass, treated with a protective coating to resist the build-up of lime scale and has components to match Chrome and has a popular H1 D handle.

Installation of two Xenon 05 Inline Panel + Door + Inline Panel, made to measure frameless shower screens

theshowerlab™ recently completed a truly bespoke showering solution with the installation of two of our Xenon 05 Inline Panel + Door + Inline Panel, made to measure frameless shower screens. Featuring an innovative design, the client created two specific zones, one for a relaxing steam room and the second for a twin “his and hers” showering area.

 Xenon 05 Bespoke Frameless Shower Screen - 1

The rear frameless shower screen needed to be sealed to stop steam from escaping and so the two fixed glass panels to either of the centrally located door were installed floor to ceiling with an outward opening door for ease of access into the steam room.

By contrast, the forward Xenon 05 shower screen utilises our CB2 ceiling mounted brackets to create a small gap between the top of the fixed panels and the ceiling. The extra high, inward opening doors have been installed with a third hinge to support the weight of the luxurious 10mm thick safety glass which is treated with an “Easy Clean” protective finish. All the components are finished to match Chrome and H2 handles have been used on both doors.

Two Bespoke Argon 02 Frameless Shower Screens

While installed in a bathroom, these two bespoke Frameless Argon 02 single doors have been combined to create a solution which we come across quite regularly, where clients want to protect a window from water, generally in over-bath showering where the layout of the bathroom requires some clever planning by the bathroom designer.

theshowerlab™ only use 10mm toughened safety glass, protected with an “Easy Clean” coating to make light of cleaning, and these doors have been produced using Satin Etched glass which introduces an element of privacy for the user. Discreet model H8 polished finger holes have been cleverly used to avoid protruding handles and the doors were surveyed, measured and installed by our team of experts to ensure a perfect fit.

Recent installation of theshowerlab’s Xenon 05 Frameless Shower Screen

A very clever design , this was a particularly tight space in to which the client wanted to install a Bespoke, made to measure Frameless shower screen. Due to the portrait style design of our hinges which require small holes in the glass, we were able to produce a very slim “dog leg”, the narrow section of glass on the left hand panel.

This would not have been possible with an old fashioned landscape style hinge, which also tend to leak because of the holes they leave in the middle of the hinge, as the large notch in the glass, required to accommodate a landscape hinge, would cause the glass to explode during the toughening process.

The photos show a particularly complicated installation which our specialist team of installers have just fitted in a loft space. The design called for a cut angle of the narrow hinge panel to suit the slope of the ceiling and we have also cut the corner off the top of the door and installed a reduced height return panel as there is an adjacent Velux window installed in the ceiling.
