Please consult the photograph above for details of the recalled Screens’ design and retail presentation. Additional brands and/or designs of the recalled products are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CTSI, hairline fractures have appeared in the some plastic hinge brackets. This could potentially release a Glass Screen from its mounting bracket resulting in personal injury including severe lacerations from broken glass.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Shower Screens, please do not use them. Instead, kindly contact the relevant help line in your jurisdiction for replacement metal hinge brackets.
