Installing a walk-in shower screen. When I've done this before I've always applied silicone to the inside of the screen, along the bottom where it sits on the shower tray and up the side.

The screen I'm installing has instructions which say don't do that, instead apply silicone to the outside of the screen along the bottom and up the side.

Why do the instructions say that? Isn't it just asking for moisture and mould to start collecting under the glass edges?

This probably explains it better than I can, and assuming you have patience!

One I did ages ago, it's tiled and used the glass bricks from Wickes. Worked well as window still accessible.

Take glass to glass shop, get new glass made 20mm wider. Easiest way.
