The Showerdome® Story

A tale of kiwi ingenuity at it's best - how Ken Evans came up with a simple solution to a simple problem.

The Showerdome® shower top was invented by Ken Evans, an engineer living in Tauranga, New Zealand.

Ken was at home watching rugby one night, and at half-time put the kettle on to make a cup of tea. He had a glass kettle and noticed there was no ‘steam’ inside the kettle, and it only formed when it came out the spout and mixed with the cooler air in the kitchen. 

Ken had been battling condensation in his bathroom for years.  His ‘inventor brain’ went into action – and he immediately raced downstairs and put a piece of plywood over the top of his shower and left it running during the second half of the game.

When he returned at full-time, his bathroom was completely moisture free and his shower was crystal clear.

After years of careful research, testing and development, Showerdome® was patented and is now sold around the world.


Stopping steam for drier, safer, healthier homes.

A Showerdome® shower top stops steam and moisture leaving your shower, so you can enjoy mist-free mirrors, a dry bathroom and a warm, clear shower enclosure. Showerdome® shower tops not only eliminate shower steam, they also look completely at home in any bathroom décor with their clean, clear designs.

Lifetime guarantee

Every Showerdome® shower top comes with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE to stay crystal clear, meaning you can buy with confidence.

Several years working within a franchise business exposed Claire to the every aspect of a business, from strategic planning to stock management, staff relations, the importance of sales & marketing, and the hands-on every day practicalities of running a business.

Claire took some time out to travel in 2007, and returned to get married in 2009. After a short stint working as a recruitment agent, Claire was invited to join the team at Showerdome® in an Administration role. With a strong sales & training background, her skills were utilised during the growth of the nationwide dealer network for Showerdome®. Claire’s role has grown significantly over the 7 years she has been with the company, and she now looks after the Marketing side of the business, which is a perfect fit, as she passionately believes in the simplicity & success of the product.
