10. LIABILITY

    1. If the Supplier fails to perform the service with care and skill it will carry out remedial action at no extra cost to the Customer. If no remedial action is possible the Supplier is liable for any additional costs to make good.

a) All goods should be fully inspected prior to installation. The buyer must check that Goods are in accordance with the purchase order both for colour and design prior to installation. The seller cannot accept responsibility in circumstances where the buyer is not present at the delivery/installation address.

b) The seller cannot guarantee the goods against fading especially as a result of exposure to sunlight where fading may occur. Our goods are not guaranteed against extreme damp or variable conditions.

c) The seller reserves the right to withdraw any products and colours at any time without prior notice and cannot be held responsible for any consequences, caused by the withdrawal of such products.

d) The seller gives no warranty as to the fitness of the product supplied for any purpose other than stated by the company, other installation and uses are the risk of the buyer.

e) Tolerance levels of overall panel specifications are plus or minus 3mm, and the product will not be considered defective if falling within the size range. Warping on any component part, vertical or horizontal, shall not exceed 1mm per 300mm and shall not be considered defective if within this tolerance.

f) Limitations. It is recommended that panels be ordered within our normal specification range. For example, panels above 1800mm in height are ordered with a divider rail, and panel widths do not exceed 650mm. We may exceed the limitation at your request, but in doing so we cannot accept responsibility for problems that result. It is also acceptable for a divider rail to be plus or minus half the depth of the louvre size selected. Customers can specifically request a Mid-rails/Divider rails to be located at a precise point but this would result in the top and bottom rails being significantly different in size. If a customer specifically request the Mid-rails/Divider rails to be at a precise point, this request will be noted on the Quotation.

g) If the buyer is not present during survey or installation, we will measure/install the shutters in accordance to our standard practices unless agreed prior to order confirmation in writing. If the buyer chooses to install against our recommendation then liability will be theirs.

h) If Customer chooses to install directly the seller cannot accept liability for any damage. The foregoing is in substitution for all other terms, express or implied relating to the quality or fitness for purpose, and all such terms are hereby excluded. This does not, however, affect the consumer's statutory rights.

i) On installation of Goods we may be required to make adjustments or alterations to the component parts of the shutters/blinds and/or the frames that the shutters are hinged to. These adjustments will be made to our standard practices. In cases where an opening is not square, we will be required to use cover strips or sealant to conceal any gaps/imperfections.

j) The buyer is responsible for all choices that are made a time of survey. Once an order has been placed design options, products, colours etc cannot be changed. Unless at the cost to the buyer.

k) The buyer is responsible for notifying the seller of any changes that are to occur to the windows, doors or opening sizes at time of measure and/or order. If changes are made to the windows, doors or opening sizes replacement parts or shutters will only be ordered to the cost of the buyer.
