These products were offered for sale between 13/06/2018 and 10/12/2018.

To ensure that there is no risk of water ingress, please isolate the power supply and visually inspect the cable entering the back of the floodlight.

If the cable is round and has a 6-10 mm outer diameter, no further action is required. If the cable is flat, you need to ensure that appropriate measures have been taken to prevent water ingress or replace the cable with round 3 core cable, 6-10 mm in diameter.

This is not a product recall so there is no need for you to return the product to us. If in doubt, please contact a qualified electrician. If you have purchased any of these products for customers in the course of your own business, please contact them immediately and advise as above.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation in this matter and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
