    Ok simple question that is either so simple that no one has ever tried to get it answered or its just obvious to everyone.

    I'm refreshing my shower and I am going get a 760×760 enclosure.

    My question is; do I get a 760×760 tray or do I need a bigger one, like 800×800???

    I don't want to take what's there as right because it's been repaired and then had the repairs, repaired so who knows.

    It going to be a corner opening enclosure...

    Thanks in advance.

    You need the one for the size of your tray, measure that to get the size

    that's a very small shower, !
    i have come across a lot of people that regretted installing a shower that size ..
    but, if needs must ..

    The actual dimensions of the enclosure will be a bit smaller than the tray, so think of it as an enclosure to fit an X by X size tray. Kiaora is right - a 760 x 760 is very small so if you have the space, think about getting a larger size.

    I read it as the tray is already there and he is just replacing the enclosure to freshen up the room?

    I am surprised regarding the size. The shower enclosure that's there now is 760×760 and it seems pretty roomy for me. 6 foot, 13 stone.

    @dcox So a 760 enclosure will fit a 760 tray?

    Yes for a 760 tray u will need a 760 enclosure. They normally have a certain level of adjustment to allow for tiles and walls that aren’t square etc.

    I’m surprised you find that roomy tbh.
