B&Q Issue Safety Notice regarding a range of Shower Screen Products

B&Q HAS IDENTIFIED A POTENTIAL SAFETY ISSUE WITH A RANGE OF SHOWER SCREENS.

Despite rigorous quality control procedures it has been brought to B&Q’s attention that in some installations, hairline fractures have appeared in the plastic hinge brackets. This could potentially release the screen from the mounting bracket resulting in personal injury.
