    Anyone know where I can get these? Refit I’m doing atm has a decent enough screen to reuse but couldn’t remove the wall channel without damaging it. My Plumber’s merchant checked with their suppliers but the computer said no!

    Think they're only the ones that you slide the glass in. I want the ones that accept the metal bit of the screen.

    No. I don't want a channel that glass fits into.
    I asked here 'cos I had no luck on google either.

    Ive had to buy a whole new cheapie screen on ebay before. Was cheaper than the cost of the channel you need

    Yeah looks that way. Just trying to save customer a bit of cash - I did tell him that the channel might get damaged during removal.
    Can't believe no one sells them.

    Loads of different sizes and styles of wall profiles.
    Channels are mainly for the glass to sit in. Wall profiles is what they glass panels sit in.
    How did you not get it off hey. I got two off on Tuesday that some £&@?#% tec 7 to the wall.

    Unscrewed and cut the silicone but was blobbed on as well - not unusual.
    What was unusual was that the bond between channel and tile was far greater than tile to wall. managed to get behind it with thin blade and the 3 top tiles it was stuck onto popped off the wall and bent it in half.

    Hope the rest of the tiles come off that easy for you lol. I've took off three in the last two weeks. One to be binned and two to be reused.
    Finding a lot of plumbers putting one screw and glue in each profile as they can't be arsed drilling tiles especially porcelain.
    My health has gone to rubbish so I'm now a fixer upper lol. It's enjoyable enough and still pays well so won't complain as I'm not busting my ..... now.
