For the installation the installer will have to physically need to be able to get down at least one side of the shower or unit and around the back of the shower.

Yep sound strange but it is true, one of the greatest benefits of a steam shower is that they are cost effective when doing a replacement for and old and out dated shower set up. Simply rip out the old, forget paying for tiles, a tiler and decoration, simply install a free standing steam shower in its place, simple. Yeah this is easy, but its also mega important to get the right size shower of the space left to cover up any mess left by the old shower without taking up the whole bathroom. Because a units is advertised as a corner unit 900 x 900 this may not mean that its 900 across the back against the wall. The unit might be curved fronted so it could mean its 900mm to the most pertuding part of that curve and less across the wall.
Rule is: Measure twice, do the job once
