Kohler Recalls Shower Doors

Kohler is voluntarily recalling it’s Purist, Pinstripe, and Finial  1/2″ glass shower doors due to a problem with the hinge panel that can cause the door to shatter.

The hinge panels have a tempering date code imprinted on a bottom corner of the panel, and only hinge panels having a tempering date code of “05/09” are included in this recall.

The tempering date code also includes the name “Guardian” above the tempering date. If the hinge is covering the tempering date code on the glass panel, it’s best to contact Kohler for assistance.

The hinge panel was sold as a component under part numbers 705753-L-NA, 705754-L-NA and 705760-L-NA in various shower door packages as described in these tables.

The doors were sold through various plumbing distributors nationwide from May 2009 through November 2010 for between $1,700 and $3,000. They were made in the United States.

Immediately stop using the recalled shower doors and contact Kohler for a free replacement hinge panel by calling (866) 782-6329 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at http://www.kohler.com.

Broken glass and naked bodies do not mix!
