Having read an article posted in March 2007 about exploding curved shower screens I am very interested know if this is quite common as it has just happened to my 12yr old daughter whilst she was in the bathroom.
I can see no reason for it happening in our case it seemed quite spontaneous however it was quite warm, surely this is an extremely dangerous event and must be stopped.
There must be a coating which can be applied to the glass which stops this kind of projectile explosion from happening.
The screen was fitted quite recently in April 2008 and was bought from Bathroom City, Tysley, Birmingham, it is called Iris Art No 7100167.
Please can you advise me if there is an alternative make which will not do this (as a replacement) and any advice regarding what to do now. NB I have some good photographs showing how far the glass travelled 3-4 meters and the damaged caused.
Many thanks for you help in advance.
