My title

It’s amazing how good one feels after taking a shower, especially after hitting the gym and of course first thing in the morning. What most people don’t realise is just how much effort goes into creating the perfect shower enclosure. At Prima Bella, we carefully research what the best materials are to create the best shower doors and enclosures making sure that when you are buying a shower, you get the best. Over the years we have continued to innovate and improve our products while still keeping our prices reasonable.

When you are buying a shower, there are a few things to be mindful of in order to ensure that you buy the right product for your needs. The cheapest buy is not necessarily the best buy.

After-sales service

At Prima Bella, we have trained technicians that are equipped to install your shower correctly. This ensures your shower’s longevity, prevents it from shattering and activates the guarantee all our products come with. To enquire about our service, please check out our website

Spare parts

All of our shower doors and enclosures have spare parts readily available. This means that if something goes wrong with any of the small parts, we can get them to you quickly, so you don’t have to be stuck with a non-functioning shower.

Glass density

Something that you might not be too concerned about when buying a shower door or enclosure is the thickness of the glass used. All Prima Bella shower doors are made from quality tempered glass with an average of 6mm thickness. Please see our products to select your required glass thickness.

Glass quality and safety

At Prima Bella we only use toughened safety glass on all our products. The glass in our shower doors and enclosures as well as our bath screens and side panels are all quality tested. We only use tempered glass. For more information check out our blog post on exploding showers.

Quality of the materials used

In order for you to have a well-functioning shower over time, we select the best materials to produce our showers. We use aluminium, chrome, stainless steel and  ABS plastic to ensure the longevity of our products. Please see our products page for information about the materials used in each product.

What the parts are made from

Understandably the quality of the parts that make up a shower door or enclosure have an impact on the over all quality of the product. At Prima Bella, we only use high quality materials to make our parts and spare parts.


When buying a shower enclosure or door, it is important to ensure that the wheels on the door or enclosure are of good quality. The wheels used in our products are quality tested up to 500 000 cycles and are made from quality materials.

Pivot System

Some shower doors use a pivot system. This relates to how the mechanisms function in order for the door to open and close. All our pivot doors and enclosures have a superior, tried and tested pivot system to ensure that you get your money’s worth.

Hinges and Rail System

The hinges on our products are made from quality materials and are quality tested.  At Prima Bella, we have trademarked our enclosed top rail system to ensure that our products can be safely used. Our patented enclosed top rail system ensures that your sliding shower door does not, over time, become derailed.


The seals on all Prima Bella products are specially developed to be mould resistant. In a warm and wet environment that you want to keep clean, this is incredibly important.


The shower industry has come a long way in terms of design, quality and function since the early days of the traditional obscure three panel sliding shower door. Recently there has been a shift to have more simplistic shower spaces. This means that shower screens have become a must have in order ensure your bathroom is the sanctuary you deserve. Prima Bella have pioneered shower screens in South Africa and we offer two gorgeously sleek shower screen options. Please see our products for more information.
