Building a new office block

We have a big site at work but after the company expanded we were running very short on office space. Most of our accounts team was in a demountable office and they were really hot in summer and cold in winter. It was so much better for the whole team once we got the new office block built on site. This blog talks about the process of building a new office block, including the design and construction of a block for your team. I hope it will be useful for anyone looking to build a new office block on their site.

The Don'ts of Shower Screen Usage

Troy Medina

Bathroom designs can be costly to implement if you do not conduct market research. Many homeowners go all in and add ceramic bathtubs and designer vanities in their bathrooms without considering cost. However, decorating a bathroom should not cost you an arm and a leg. For example, shower screens are inexpensive features that add elegance and aesthetic value to your home. That said, shower screens should be used appropriately to avoid untimely damage. This article highlights the don'ts of shower screen usage.

Do Not Use Towel Handles as Grab Bars -- Shower screens vary based on design, and while some models don't have towel bars, others do. Towel bars are a convenient addition to shower screens that add functionality. However, homeowners should be careful not to confuse towel bars with grab bars. Grab bars are installed on a wall, and their sole purpose is to help you get out of the bathtub. If your bathroom does not have a grab bar, you might be tempted to use the towel bar as one. However, that is dangerous because the towel bars on shower screens cannot support your weight; as a result, they will snap off easily and break the enclosure. Only use a towel bar for its purpose and install a grab bar if you need one.

Do Not Postpone Screen Cleaning -- When you choose your shower screens, ease of maintenance should be a guiding factor in your decision. The last thing you want is a shower screen that takes too much energy, time and supplies to clean. However, many homeowners admit that they tend to postpone the cleaning of shower screens. This stems from the belief that accumulated dirt will still be easy to remove even after a few days. Unfortunately, this is not usually the case, especially if you have hard water. The water's high calcium content will start building up on the screen, leaving behind an ugly surface. You should make wiping down the shower screen every time you have a shower a habit.

Do Not Direct Water at the Screen Door -- Shower screens are designed to prevent water from leaking outside the enclosure during normal shower conditions. However, it would help if you understood that shower screens are not entirely watertight. It means that directing water towards a shower screen door might lead to leakage outside the bath area, posing slipping risks. Most importantly, keep the shower head away from the shower screen door so that water stays within the enclosure.
