Service Bulletin 13-6

As a general practice of providing a safe and pleasant environment for bowlers, we are taking this opportunity to remind you that the Frameworx seating in your bowling center should be inspected on a regular basis and any needed repairs be addressed quickly.

As the seats attached to Brunswick’s Frameworx tables and modwalls are used on a daily basis, hardware may come loose or metal fatigue may occur during normal use and wear. Brunswick advises that all furniture be inspected on a quarterly basis. This inspection should cover all hardware used for mounting the furniture to the floor as well as attaching the individual pieces together. Seating frames and all welded assemblies should be inspected for hairline cracks. Table tops should be inspected for cracked, chipped or loose laminate.

If issues are identified during the inspection process, they should be addressed as soon as possible. If repairs can not be made quickly, it is recommended that the defective item be removed from service to reduce the chance of injury or harm to bowlers and spectators.

Examples of items needing inspection and repair are shown in the PDF
