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 frame 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 huts of self.tapping screws for 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.

Integration

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.

Sealing gaps

A gap is formed between the installed plumbing and the wall. In order to avoid water entering the wooden structures of the frame and the floor, it must be closed. The gap will be original with a silicone and an external plastic corner for tiles.

Photo sealing gap between the bathroom and the wall.

First of all, marking is carried out and in accordance with this, pruning of the length and angles of the court. Then the gap is filled with silicone and a prepared corner is inserted into it.

Laying the gaps between the corner bath and walls.

After a day, the design becomes sealed and fits perfectly into the interior of the bathroom.

The modern market offers a large number of various models made of various materials, and differing in the cost, operational characteristics and appearance.

  • Plastic screens. Models are characterized by hygiene and the possibility of applying any pattern, relief or photo printing to the surface. The frame of plastic screens is made of aluminum, which gives the design of lightness, strength, resistance to corrosion and durability. The service life of models is up to 30 years, during which the material perfectly retains its operational properties and the original appearance. The pluses of plastic screens also include low cost, ease of care and ease of installation.
  • Sequeswall screens. The material is distinguished by hygiene and aesthetics. A wide range of glass screens is due to a wide variety of colors and relief. The structures are made of thick organic glass with a transparent, matte or mirror surface. Models look harmoniously in combination with a sink made of glass and chrome elements of plumbing, as well as visually increase the area of ​​the room and do not conceal the space. The disadvantage of glass screens is the high cost of products, high weight, complexity of installation and the need for regular care.
  • Models made of wood.fiber slab. Inexpensive, beautiful and easy to care, material is often used to make screens. It is available in the form of laminated panels with a wide variety of colors and textures. Models with imitation of a pattern of wood fibers, natural stone and tiles are very popular. The design can have sliding doors, a technological hatch or swing sash. The disadvantages include low moisture resistance of models, due to which the elements absorb moisture, swell and deform. To prevent this from happening, the bathroom must be equipped with a serviceable exhaust ventilation system. The service life of screens made of wood.fiber plate does not exceed three years.
  • Acrylic screens. Light, hygienic and practical acrylic harmoniously combines with the bathroom and sink, has high resistance to the effects of household chemicals and is characterized by high indicators of moisture resistance and heat resistance.
  • Aluminum models. Products are characterized by low cost, durability and resistance to corrosion. The small weight of the screens contributes to the rapid transportation and easy installation of the structure, and the wide color scheme allows you to choose products for any color and style of the room.
  • Drywall. The popular material for the manufacture of screens, which allows you to independently form a curved structure for a non.standard bath. The front part can be faced with ceramic tiles or mosaic.
  • Wood. Practical, environmentally friendly and durable material. Wooden screens are made in a monolithic, sliding or swirling structure. They are distinguished by exquisite appearance and practicality. The disadvantages of these models include the high weight and high cost of some products.

Factory fastener and frame

Providing the ability to fix the acrylic bathtub from a shift in a horizontal plane, manufacturers are equipped with plumbing with metal brackets or polymer fasteners of a similar shape.

Factory bracket for attaching the side of the bowl to the wall.

A bracket is called a curved steel strip, adjacent to the supporting surface with one plane, the other forming hook. Plastic fasteners are formed in extruders or casts entirely.

The step.by.step method of installation to the supporting design is as follows:

How To Remove Stains From Acrylic Bathtub

  • The elements of the frame are attached to the bowl with self.tapping screws;
  • The bath is installed at the place of operation, the sides are set in a horizontal plane due to the legs adjustable in height;
  • marking is made on the walls of the upper edge of the bowl of its sides adjacent to them;
  • The bathroom is shifted, the height of its side is measured, the marking on the walls is transferred below to the value of this value;
  • Stripes or plastic fasteners are mounted along the line;
  • The bowl rises above the hooks, put on the side on them.

There are usually no holes for attaching them to the floor adjustable in the height of the legs of the power frame of the acrylic bathtub.

The best tub styles you gotta choose from��

For installation of most screens, the frame is required around the perimeter of the bath. The frame is usually collected from aluminum profiles, less often. from wooden bars.

For light plastic screens, such a frame is not needed, since the product is attached to the sort of bath. Sometimes the space under the bathroom is covered with brickwork, which is faced with tiles or mosaic. In the masonry, it is recommended to make an emergency hatch in case of repairing communications so that you do not have to break everything. Such a screen looks good and differs in high reliability, but at the same time requires more time and effort to install, excludes the possibility of rational use of free space under the bathroom.

How to choose the right size?

Any bath panel is selected for a specific size. It is very important to check whether it is suitable for your plumbing model. The length of the acrylic panels varies from 120 and to 180 cm for standard fonts. And the height is 55-60 cm, but it can change if there are legs.

Most often, acrylic panels are complete with plumbing and have the same tone with the bathroom, which allows you to look organically a common structure. They are made of plastic covered with acrylic layer.

The advantages of panels purchased complete with font are also attributed to the fact that they fit the sides of the bath as tightly as possible, riding you from non.aesthetic cracks. Experts do not recommend purchasing such screens separately, since they are not always accurate in size.

If the screen is purchased separately from the bathroom, then in order not to make a mistake with the choice of size, it is worthwhile to carefully produce plumbing from all sides.

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:

  • 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 third.party 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.

BAS BAS have their advantages, namely:

To achieve all these requirements, we advise you to use the bathrooms and curtains for them BAS brand (Bath Acril Systems). Acrylic and baths for massage with curtains will please any whimsical client.

How to install on corner models

For angular baths, the fastening is most often provided not by self.tapping screws, but by special magnets and metal plates. Such magnets are initially attached to the legs of the font.

Height adjustment. As in the case of a rectangular model, adjust the height of the legs, starting from the screen parameters.

How to fix the plates? On the back of the panel in the places where the magnets will rest, glue the metal plates from the kit to a double.sided tape or silicone sealant. During the drying, you can fix them with ordinary tape.

Mounting. We apply the front panel and check that the magnets grab metal plates.

This installation option is convenient in that the question: how to remove the screen, and then put it again. does not arise. Everything is extremely simple, you need to make a slight effort, pulling the panel over yourself, it is also easily possible to return it to its place. The previous method does not differ such simplicity, where you will need to first unscrew the screws.

Screen of the lining

The lining is a durable and durable material, so it is often used to install the screen under the bathroom. It will provide maximum protection of communications and at the same time make the room more attractive outwardly.

In stores you can find a lining of two types suitable for installation on a bath:

Natural wood lining should be pre.processed with a special water.repellent composition. If this is not done, then the wooden screen installed under the bath will quickly become unusable due to the wet climate of the room. or, even worse, can cause mold or fungus spread.

The plastic lining in this regard is more convenient. She is not afraid of moisture, and in all characteristics it is in no way inferior to wooden. The installation method of any lining practically does not differ from the option with plastic panels. The starting frame should also be made preliminary. Direct guides instead of metal guides can be used, but not recommended. this material is not very suitable for a wet climate of the bathroom. Self.tapping screws are used to fix the sheets.
