Upstands, Riser Kits & Accessories
A Shower Riser Kit provides an inflexible rail that is used to fix your showerhead into a set position for ease of use. One of the main advantages of using a Shower Riser Kit is that you can situate the head at your preferred height, giving you control over the water flow.
How to choose your Shower Riser Kit
Each Shower Rise Kit comes with a Shower Riser rail and showerhead, and some also include an additional handset, offering an extra showering option as part of your Shower Riser. The showerhead simply screws into the arm of the Shower Riser, making installation of your Shower Rise Kit a quick and easy process. Purchase a Shower Riser Kit to hide pipework underneath your shower tray and keep the shower area looking neat and tidy.
These kits consist of Shower Riser panels, lengths of plastic that are inserted in the space between the tray lip and the floor. They also come with various legs, nuts and washers for holding the panels securely in place. Make sure that the Shower Riser Kit you buy is compatible with your shower, as the kits are not universal and will not fit every model of shower. You will find this information in the description box for each product.
Using your Shower Riser Kit
You can use your new Shower Riser Kit with a brand-new shower or to update one that has been installed previously. You can use a Shower Upstand to create a lip around your tray – this will help prevent water from travelling into small cracks between the tray and the wall, thus minimising the risk of long-term damp issues. The Shower Upstand is a simple concept but an effective one, which is used by many people to complement their Shower Riser and protect their bathroom. An upstand will add extra height onto your tray, so bear this in mind when choosing a Shower Riser Kit.
