French term or phrase: panneau de fermeture de la baignoire
Context is describing different tools and products for the bathroom in a building context.

Full phrase is

produit permettant de realiser un panneau de fermeture de la baignoire pour un acces facile a la tuyauterie. Pour carreaux < 30cm

so its a product that makes it possible to create a bathtub screen/shield? or is it a closing panel? so that its easy to access the plumbing or piping.
for tiles less than 30cm

it doesnt really make any sense to me I cant visualise what this is??

any ideas?

Explanation:
(in UK English)

It's possible here that they are referring to a smaller 'access hatch' within or alongside the main bath panel.
