Domestic appliance manufacturer Glen Dimplex Home Appliances (GDHA) has announced its commitment to fitting all of its Lec, Stoves and Britannia-branded refrigeration products with metal backing.

Ahead of regulation changes, due to come into play on January 1 2019, which require the backing on fridges and fridge freezers to meet a higher level of flame retardancy, GDHA will be redeveloping remaining plastic backed products across its freestanding and integrated cooling portfolio.

Production of all plastic-backed products will end this month.

GDHA head of category for cooling Stuart Netscher (pictured) said: “We pride ourselves on consistently reviewing the design and manufacture of our products to ensure that they perform well and comply with the latest safety legislation. We are aware that recent media reports linked to plastic backed fridges have caused concern amongst consumers and we want our customers to feel 100% confident in our brands.

“The majority of our products already have metal backings, this change ensures we will have metal backing on 100% of our refrigeration range of products, ahead of January 1 2019.”
