Triton Safeguard+ safety notice
We have been made aware of a potential safety issue with a specific model of Triton shower – the Safeguard+.
Triton advises that under very rare circumstances and in a very small number of cases, a part of the electronic circuit board of the Safeguard+ shower may develop a fault which could lead to overheating and a potential risk of electric shock or fire hazard.
- If your shower is showing any signs of discolouration; Triton’s advice is that you must stop using it immediately.
- Any heat build up occurs gradually and is noticeable with a distinct overheating smell.
- You should check the casing top to see if there are any signs of discolouration. If there is none, then you can continue to use the shower.
- Please continue to ensure that any vulnerable people are not left showering alone and that user instructions continue to be followed.
The only Triton model affected is the Safeguard+ manufactured between May 2014 and December 2016. Triton’s website provides further information about the affected models.
We are writing to all Curo customers with the affected model to provide further information and advice and to make arrangements for Triton to come and inspect each shower and correct any issues.

Check the top of the casing to see if there’s any sign of discolouration, also there’s usually a distinct smell which is caused by overheating.
