    We have a 25 yr old shower which is enclosed on 3 sides with an aluminium frame and hinged door. There is a ?silicone strip on the inside of the door frame at the bottom to divert water into the tray. It pushes into a slot in the aluminium frame. I take it out to clean it when the shower is cleaned. It is now getting stiffer, the strip that is, and is harder to push back into the slot. I have searched the internet for a replacement but can only find the strips that fit to the bottom of glass shower doors and glass screens. The firm that made the frame is no longer in business. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement from.

    pandaman, good evening.

    Are there any makers marks indicating who made the screen? anywhere on the glass or the frame itself? at times these makers marks are well hidden?

    The other possibility is to take dimensions and try to google something? that will fit?

    Thanks for reply, I still had the paperwork somewhere which had the makers name on. I googled them but they went out of business a few yrs ago. I have googled size etc but cannot find anything. As mentioned all that comes up is strips for the bottom of glass shower doors and bath screens.
