Warranty

Important Notice Regarding Warranty: This product is covered for a very competitive warranty period. In order to enjoy the peace of mind that this warranty affords and ensure the optimum performance of your floor, you must comply with all instructions relating to preparation, subfloor, installation environment, installation method, and ongoing care and maintenance. Any faults that occur as a result of failure to comply with the above, will not be covered

by the warranty. Appropriate Installation Settings: Residential settings and light commercial settings; areas with light to moderate traffic, such as hotels, conference rooms, classrooms, small offices, small department stores, boutiques and lobbies. This product is designed for internal installation only - it is NOT to be installed in areas that have a potential for flooding, such as saunas or outdoor areas. This product is not suitable for installation in garages, as discolouration of the surface of the planks can occur as a result of prolonged contact with rubber. Strong, direct sunlight can influence the dimensional stability of the planks so this should be considered when choosing installation method.

Re-painting, removal of fixtures or furniture, accommodation, waste removal and any other costs are specifically excluded from the Guarantee. Reasonable labour charges associated with any rectification work may be reimbursed, at the sole discretion of Dunlop Flooring. Such reimbursement will not be considered unless the Product and its replacement has been professionally installed by the retailer or place of purchase, but is not automatically given in such circumstances. A request for such costs should be made through the formal claims procedure
(see paragraph 11 for details).
