Hi Guys,
does anyone know where I can get some spares for a Niagara Shower cubicle? I think that they may have gone out of business, I found

http://www.niagarabathrooms.co.uk/

So I contacted them and they responded buy saying that they don't do shower cubicles, they just took over the name.

What I need is a Corner cap, it's not square, it's a curve, I've attached a few photo's.

Many Thanks

Steve

You'll be lucky to find any spares, might be worth a look on "the shower doctor" (Google)

Thanks for the reply, I was beginning to think that I wasn't going to get any replies.
I had contacted
www.showerpart.co.uk
Who claim to do a 'Matching Service' where they match your part up with what they have, but they don't have anything, so I'll try your suggestion and see how I go.
For the time being it's glued with Epoxy Resin and that is holding, I managed to get a better join, so the cracks aren't so bad, and I put some sealant around the bottom.

If I can get a 'Bend' is there another easy cheap fix, or is it going to have to be a new enclosure, I guess £100 - £200 as it's not to big.

Thanks
Again,

Steve

Unfortunately 'The shower doctor' doesn't do spares for shower enclosures or cubicles, so not sure wher else to try, think I'm gonna be stuck and have to get new enclosure

What about mending the existing with epoxy and wire ties to strengthen the join? Let the wire into the surface using a Dremel to cut the grooves, then "vee out" the cracks and fill with "Milliput" coloured to match existing, or paint the corner pieces all the same colour.
I've mended quite a few "unmendable" plastic items using a similar method. Might be worth a try?

I've used that a time or two and filled the voids with it where possible inside plastic mouldings. If you can "key" (scratch it up to give a bit of grip) the inside, and get a reasonable thickness of filler behind the cracks you don't need the wire to strengthen.

Good luck with it. :thumbleft:

Make sure it's degreased as well with meths or similar. Gives a better hold. (If you haven't already done it that is)
Some plastics "glue" better than others though.
