Lakes Launches ‘Game-Changing’ Modular Walk-In Collection

Lakes Showering Spaces is shaking up the modular shower enclosure market with the launch of a walk-in collection – offering the ultimate in bathroom personalisation across 28 configuration options, six colour finishes and a comprehensive range of 8mm and 10mm glass panel and hardware options.

As the appetite for modular products across construction and in the bathroom sector continues to grow, Lakes’ introduction to the market represents an elevation for our product portfolio.

The modular walk-in range comes in a range of six colour finishes – initially covering silver, matt black, gun metal, brushed nickel and brushed brass, with brushed bronze to follow in the near future.

The versatility of the collection – which we believe offers one of the most customisable options in its field on the market – means it is suitable for recess/alcove, corner and flat wall installations and can be installed onto a shower tray or flush fit directly to a tiled wet room floor, providing accessibility for the specific needs of consumers.

The scope for personalisation offered by a modular range is infinite, with consumers able to choose their glass panels, bracing and stabilising preferences, glass connecting and deflector options and of course, colour finish. 

Lakes Managing Director, Mike Gahir, said: “This is a real game-changing launch for Lakes, we’re incredibly proud to be bringing our reputation for high quality, stylish and installer friendly products into the walk-in market.

“Demand for products that offer personalisation for the consumer while making the lives of bathroom retailers, designers, and specifiers easier is growing all the time and we’re confident that now is the right time for our modular walk-in range to launch.

“Whatever your showering space demand, style need, scale or budget, our intelligent designs and market leading engineering mean there’s a solution for everyone.”

The launch of Lakes modular walk-in collection comes after more than a year in Research & Development and market testing, representing the culmination of a collaborative effort between Lakes’ UK based design and development team and the engineering team at the company’s wholly owned factory.

The range conforms to the most exacting and required UK and European safety and quality standards to offer complete peace of mind, alongside Lake’s lifetime guarantee.

Lakes Extends Popular Wave Range with Hinge & In-Line Addition

Leading manufacturer of shower enclosures, Lakes Showering Spaces, has kick started 2024’s product development with the extension of its popular Wave range to include a Hinge & In-Line option.

Ideal for wider enclosed spaces, the Hinge & In-Line model builds on the success of the core range of Wave products including sliding doors, quads, bi-fold door and walk in panel.

The product includes genuine 8mm thick glass throughout and comes in a broad range of sizes from 1m up to 1.7m wide.

For installers, the usual attention to detail has been applied in order to make this as friendly to use as possible and in line with Lakes’ commitment to quality, the Wave Hinge & In-Line enclosure complies to relevant British and European standards.

It will also be available in a range of colours including silver, black and brushed brass, the latter of which was launched last November.

Mike Gahir, Managing Director at Lakes, said: “The Wave range has been a huge success for us since coming to market in the summer of 2022.

“From a practical perspective, its strong frames and quality build mean there is no compromise in the performance of the showering space, while its engineering is focused on retaining a simplicity and ease of handling for installers when carrying and manoeuvring it into position in confined spaces.

“Visually, this latest addition adds a nice stylistic compliment to the range, creating that feeling of premium elegance.

“We’re delighted to be able to continue to broaden Wave and support our customers in being able to offer solutions to a wider variety of consumer requirements and needs.”

All Lakes products are backed by a no-quibble guarantee and come with AllClear glass protection coating, which forms an invisible, microscopically smooth shield to assist with cleaning and repel water, limescale and soap.
