- It is important that all details in relation to your order are correct before ordering.
- Products "made to order" are considered bespoke and are non-returnable.
- The colour and gloss level in any colour or RAL chart are only used as guidance. If you are unsure please call one of our sales team, who will help you through the process. We would recommend requesting a sample of colour for a good indication of how the finished product will arrive.
- It is important that you note that colours shown online may vary due to differences in colour, contrast and brightness settings on your computer monitor and that printed colours may vary slightly from the actual paint colour.
- Any technical specification, advice or information provided by us is for guidance only. We always advise that no works be carried out or installers booked prior to delivery and you have inspected the goods. We advise any installation should be carried out by a qualified installer.
- All Goods carry the standard manufacturer's warranty, this is generally specified with the product details.
- We insist that all Goods should be suitably specified for the system type on which they are to be installed. In areas where aggressive water prevails or where a softener is installed, the use of dezincification resistant materials would be advised. We insist that this is checked with the heating installer or local water authority, as responsibility for premature failure due to corrosion will not be held by us.
- Any specifications supplied by us are given without guarantee, we can take no responsibility for information supplied or work carried out by yourself or your contractors in relation to information supplied on the web site, literature or in any communication. We recommend you take delivery of and inspect the product before undertaking any work in relation to the Goods supplied.
