Anyone with shower experience, I have one of these brackets to ‘simplify’ attaching a shower bar valve later on.
Unfortunately I need the horizontal pipe to go through 24mm of wall material and 18mm of escutcheon and the non-threaded section is only 36mm long. Where do I find the missing 6mm?
A) cut 6mm off the escutcheons - I’m not massive confident they’ll end up even or unscratched.
B) the wall is two layers, 12.5mm and 11mm so I could cut a window (rather than just two neat holes) into the inner layer and move the bracket out. In my head this means more chance of the seal between pipe and wall failing (11mm of contact instead of 24mm) but perhaps that isn’t really an issue?
