The creators of JoyFous have been part of the shower room industry for over twenty years now and have exported premium products all around the world. Their latest shower screen is manufactured with a 3-layer mould proof material and is completely retractable so you’ll hardly notice it’s there when it’s not in use, and it’s designed to keep all that soap and water from finding its way to the bathroom floor.
You won’t have to hire a pro to install it for you either. The JoyFous is delightfully easy to set up and use since it adapts to the width of your walls and can be attached to a wide variety of wall types. All you really need is a 3-wall bathtub.
Rolling & Retractable Screen
JoyFous’ rolling and retractable design ensure that it takes up minimal space and stays completely out of the way when not in use, unlike unsightly shower curtains that need to be shoved aside time and time again, or glass shower doors that take up much of your entry space.
Perhaps one of the biggest disadvantages of run-of-the-mill shower curtains is their inability to effectively keep water from splashing outside of the tub. JoyFous manages to fix this problem since the screen itself is completely waterproof and it works alongside a retractable threshold water dam that’s made out of quality aluminium sealed tightly by a rubber strip.
Another major downside to shower curtains is their tendency to breed mould which is both gross to look at and potentially hazardous to your health. Luckily enough, JoyFous is totally mould-proof, thanks to its silicone-coated screen and its specially treated aluminium alloy frame. This engineering usually found only in outdoor products, creates a longer-lasting product of up to 10 years without the need of a replacement compared to the traditional 6 months with other shower screens.
JoyFous’s waterproof screen passed the rigorous SGS standard test for antibacterial materials, meaning you won’t have to wait for ages for it to dry before putting it away. Just roll it up right after your shower without worrying mould or mildew creeping in between showers.
Two Simple Methods of Installation
You can opt to install your JoyFous either by following a simple set of drilling instructions or by going for a tool-free glue installation in case you’re not looking to put a few holes in your bathroom walls. Whichever you choose, the process is guaranteed to be quick and painless and doesn’t involve enlisting professional assistance. If fact, renters can easily install and remove their screen without much difficulty, making it an excellent choice no matter your living arrangement.

The JoyFous’ frame and threshold water dam come in either white or black depending on your preference and bathroom aesthetic, though it’s worth noting that the screen itself is always white in colour.

Build & Design
One of the best things about JoyFous is its minimalist design which enables it to blend in seamlessly with pretty much any kind of bathroom. Since it retracts all the way back into its frame, it remains out of sight whenever it’s not in use, unlike shower curtains that may clash with your bathroom decor or glass shower doors that tend to take up a lot of space.It also comes in either black or white to better suit your bathroom aesthetic.
As for its build quality, JoyFous’ frame is made out of top-shelf aluminium alloy while the screen is a mix of silicone-coated fibreglass fabric, polyester, and PVC, ensuring that the setup is sturdy enough to withstand years of continuous use. And the best part is you won’t have to worry about the glass cracking or shattering like with glass doors.
On top of the clever design and excellent build quality, the specially engineered 3-layer design prevents mould growth and builds up to a much greater degree than traditional shower screens. This results in a longer-lasting product up to 10 years, making it an excellent investment.
What’s it like to use?
Whether it’s via drill or glue, installing JoyFous is an absolute breeze given its innovative design and thorough user manuals. All you really need to keep in mind is that the device’s mainframe has to be installed on the same side as the showerhead and you should be good to go.
Using JoyFous is even simpler. Just pull down the retractable threshold water dam from the side of the frame, extend it as far as you need to, then pull out the screen till it covers the length of your bathtub and lock it in place. Once you’re done, just release the lock and the screen will retract all the way back into the frame, completely out of sight.
If you can’t stand shower curtains and aren’t keen on shelling out some major cash and bathroom space for a glass shower door, then JoyFous should be right up your alley. It succeeds in preserving your bathroom aesthetic by keeping out of the way most of the time and its smart design ensures that all the water and soap remain inside the tub, exactly as intended.
It’s mould-proof as well, so you’ll never worry about it breeding mildew or the likes. To top it all off, it’s incredibly easy to install and won’t cost you any extra money in labor. It may be limited to only 3-wall alcove bathtubs, but if you have one then picking up JoyFous is a no-brainer if you want a cost-effective and long lasting shower screen.
