    I'm planning to install those plastic shower panels in my shower alcove, but have been wondering how I go about fitting the door, in particular how to get the door frame tight up on the wall without tightening the screws too much, which I imagine will crumple the plastic panel. Am I worrying unnecessarily?

    Also, I was hoping to fit a frameless shower doo, but think I might be safer sticking to one with a frame as the horizontal would provide bracing from one wall to the other, rather than a frameless "pillar" that would be taking the entire weight of the door.

    You should use the solid shower panels the hollow stuff is not suitable for showers.

    Really? Virtually every cladding manufacturer and retailer markets them as "shower panels".
