Darren Bedford

Sales Director



Lakes is a leading manufacturer and supplier of showering spaces, which includes shower doors and bath screens. The company sells exclusively through builders’ and plumbers’ merchants, and retail bathroom stockists.

Established in 1986, the family business has a long-standing reputation for top customer service, stock availability and speed of delivery, backed by a unique ‘no quibble guarantee’ for added customer reassurance. Its products range from timeless classics to contemporary designs catering for all market requirements. Innovations include Lakes’ optically superior PureVueHD glass and AllClear® stay-clean coating.

PureVueHD glass was introduced with low iron content to remove the green hue found in standard glass, ensuring clearer, lighter and brighter glass. AllClear® is a protective coating applied to both sides of the glass so your showering space stays looking great, for longer and with minimal effort. Uniquely, both innovations are available as standard across Lakes’ Classic, Coastline and Island Collections.
