Avanti Lighting operates a return to base warranty policy on all products and will not be liable for any return carriage costs incurred. The warranty covers defects in design, materials and workmanship. Should the product fail during the warranty period it will be replaced or repaired free of charge, subject to the above and the return of the faulty unit.
The duration of the standard warranty varies from product to product. Unless otherwise stated it is 12 months from the date of purchase from Avanti Lighting. On some products the standard warranty is stated as 3 or 5 years. In these cases, a year is deemed to be 10 hours operation per day, 7 days a week. Longer running hours per day will proportionately reduce the standard warranty.
The warranty excludes consumable items such as lamps, fuses and batteries. All warranties will be invalid if the product has been found to have been tampered with, installed in an improper working environment including being installed in an area with a higher ambient temperature than 25 ͦC, exposed to unsuitable environmental conditions eg Salt spray, certain cleaning agents, other corrosive substances, abnormal electrical conditions or had the QC date label removed (if applicable) or been installed not in accordance with the current edition of the I.E.E Wiring Regulations.
We do not accept responsibility for any third-party costs associated with the replacement of the product. Your statutory rights are not affected. We reserve the right to alter product specifications without prior notice. Each individual product has its relevant warranty period stated on its data sheet.
