Ordering Goods on Indent

When ordering goods on indent we have a set policy of a 30% Deposit for account holders and a 50% Deposit for non account holders.  This is due to the fact that once we have set the order in course for production we are unable to cancel the order and in fact we pay the supplier in advance prior to production or supply.  We have then made a commitment on our supplier an unable to cancel.  Due to this we require an order commitment from the purchaser in return. Please enquire as to if this applies to your purchase.  This also applies to orders that would exceed our current stock holding of that line item and larger project orders.

NOTE: Some items that are on indent Minimum Order Quantities may apply and we will advise this to you ASAP.

Project & Project Hardware Orders

On all project work minimum of 30% deposit applies to account holders and 50% for non-account holders.  This must be paid prior to commencement of the supply of any goods or services relating to that project.  This is to ensure continuity and that hardware etc. can be pre-ordered if required.  It also assists in the project management cost during the initial phases of the project.

Product Warranty

All of our products are covered by a standard factory return to base warranty. The warranty does not cover misuse and abuse or any damage caused by mother nature.  We provide guidelines if and when required to assist installers in helping to avoid problems caused by mother nature.  If we do not have a specific guideline available for the application we would be only to happy to assist you by phone and possibly convert the outcome in to a new guideline.

Any guidelines given make us in no way liable for any damage that may be incurred from outside influences that are beyond our control, including mother nature.

Any Warranty only covers the cost of the faulty hardware supplied by us to be replaced and does not cover any labour or associated cost.

Where warranty is stated by the manufacturer we offer a return to base warranty as describe above.

Where no warranty is stated by the manufacturer we offer a 1 year return to base warranty as describe above.  Second hand or ex demo equipment is not covered by warranty, however, a warranty period can be negotiated per sale.

Return to base is considered as the manufacturers repair destination. Therefore all freight and customs charges incurred are chargeable and freight is not covered by the warranty. To minimise this possibility we do our best to service product locally where possible.

IP Ratings of Products

Some manufacturers have their product tested to certain world wide standards.  Those products that have standards such as dust and water ratings have been tested to meet that requirement.  Should the conditions of installation exceed that rating then it is the responsibility of the installer to ensure that everything is done to eleviate any issues that may arise such as the use of weather shields, Protective housings etc.  Goods are not covered by warranty should they be damaged by conditions exceeding the rating.

For example:..........
Most weather conditions in New Zealand exceed IP54 and weather wise that simply covers of light showers. Hence installations out in open areas require additional protection.

Those manufacturers that have no rating do not have any warranty for weather conditions and it is solely up to the installer to ensure every step possible is taken to avaoid local conditions damaging the product.

IP Ratings can be found here IP Ratings on Wiki
