4.2The Company will not be liable for any defects arising:
(a)   where such defect arises by reason of fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence, or abnormal working or environmental or natural conditions;
(b)   where such defect arises from any drawing, design, information, data, requirement, or specification supplied by the Customer or by a third party on the Customer’s behalf (and for the avoidance of doubt, once drawings have been issued by the Company, the Customer shall be solely responsible for reviewing and approving them in order to ensure that they are correct and complete);

5.2It is prohibited to access the Website from territories where its contents are illegal or unlawful. If the Customer accesses the Website from a location outside the United Kingdom, it does so at its own risk and is responsible for compliance with local laws.
5.3The Company shall not be responsible for the provision of ongoing maintenance services, and it is the sole responsibility of the Customer to maintain the Goods in accordance with manufacturers’ recommendations.
5.4The Customer acknowledges that it does not enter into the Contract in reliance on any representation, warranty, or other provision except as expressly provided in these Conditions.
6.1Any descriptions and illustrations appearing on the Website are approximate only and are intended merely to convey a general description of the Goods; they are not deemed to form any part of any Contract and are not to be regarded as a warranty or representation.
6.2Material finishes and product colours shown on the Website are for illustrative purposes only and can vary when viewed on differing computer equipment. For this reason, the Company cannot guarantee that the Customer’s computer monitor will accurately reflect the true colour and finish of the Goods.
6.3The Company’s employees or agents are not authorised to make any representations concerning the Goods unless one of its directors confirms the representations in writing.
6.4Unless otherwise agreed by the Company in writing, if the Company delivers to the Customer Goods which have dimensions falling within acceptable industry standard manufacturer’s tolerances, the Customer shall not be entitled to object or to reject the Goods or any part of them.
6.5Where the decorative laminates and core materials used to produce the Goods permit, the Goods will comply generally with the quality specification of BS4965. The Company does not warrant that decorative laminates will conform to a particular colour shade or be consistent with a particular colour or pattern.

7.1All and any Goods supplied will be deemed delivered on arrival of the Goods at the Location.

7.3The Company reserves the right to change product specifications without prior notice and without liability to the Customer either as a result of continuous product development or where changes are necessary to comply with any applicable safety or other statutory requirements.

7.5The Customer’s Order will be fulfilled by the delivery date notified to the Customer or, if no delivery date has been notified to the Customer, then within a reasonable time of the date of the Order.
7.6The Company will deliver the Goods ordered by the Customer to the specified delivery address. It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that the delivery address is accurate and complete; the Customer must also ensure that an authorised representative on behalf of the Customer is present to sign for and take delivery of the Goods upon delivery.
7.7Large and/or palletised Goods can only be delivered to the exterior of a ground floor location at the delivery address; the Customer must therefore make their own arrangements at their own risk where the relevant item needs to be transported from the delivery location.
7.8A valid signature will be required on delivery and the Goods must be examined prior to signing. The Customer should not arrange for any Goods to be installed until after the Customer has received the Order and checked all of the Goods for any defects or missing parts.
7.9Any attempted delivery which is refused or otherwise fails at the delivery address will be returned to the Company’s warehouse. In this case a re-delivery charge will be applied. The amount of the re-delivery charge depends on the carrier used to effect re-delivery. If the re-delivery is refused or fails, the Company reserves the right to resell or otherwise dispose of the Goods, and may invoice the Customer:
(a)   for reasonable storage charges and costs of resale; and
(b)   for any shortfall of the resale price below the price that the Customer paid for the Goods.
7.10In the event that the Customer is in breach of the Contract (including without limitation where any sums due to the Customer is not paid in full in cleared funds by the due date for payment), the Company reserves the right to refuse to supply the Customer with any additional Goods, or to suspend the delivery of any Goods, without limiting any other remedy available to the Company. The Company may exercise this right until such time as the breach has been remedied, where such breach is remediable.
7.11Manufacturing of bespoke goods will not commence until such time as the Company receives from the Customer written approval of its drawings and any specifications.
7.12Goods may be delivered by instalments. Any delay in delivery or defect in an instalment will not entitle the Customer to cancel any other instalment.
7.13The Company will use its reasonable endeavours to meet estimated delivery dates, but such dates are approximate only, and time for delivery of Goods is not of the essence.
7.14The Company will not be liable for any delay in or failure of delivery of the Goods caused by:
(a)   the Customer’s failure to:
   (i)   make the Location (or any equipment or items necessary for the delivery of the Goods) available to the Company; or
   (ii)   prepare the Location in accordance with the Company’s instructions as required for the provision of the Goods; or
   (iii)   provide the Company with adequate instructions pertaining to delivery of the Goods, or otherwise relating to the Goods; or
(b)   any delay or failure by any third party to supply goods or services to the Customer; or

(d)   the Customer requesting additional or alternative Goods which is agreed by the Company; and the Company shall have the right to extend all or any agreed delivery and/or performance timelines as a result of any such failure, delay, event, or request.

(a)   invoice the Customer for reasonable storage charges and costs of resale; and
(b)   account to the Customer for any excess of the resale price over, or invoice the Customer for any shortfall of the resale price below the price paid by the Customer for the Goods.
7.16The Customer acknowledges that some Goods supplied by the Company are fragile and require delicate handling, which shall be the sole responsibility of the Customer.
8.1The Goods will be at the Customer’s risk from the time of delivery.
8.2 Ownership of the Goods will only pass to the Customer upon:
(a)   the Company’s receipt of all sums due in respect of the Goods, including carriage charges, together with;
(b)   all other sums which are, or which become due to the Company from the Customer on any account.
8.3Until ownership of the Goods has passed to the Customer, the Customer must:
(a)   store the Goods (at no cost to the Company) separately from all other goods and any goods of any third party in such a way that they remain identifiable as the Company’s property;
(b)   not destroy, deface, or obscure any identifying mark or packaging on or relating to the Goods, maintain the Goods in satisfactory condition and keep it insured on the Company’s behalf for the full price of the Goods against all risks to the Company’s reasonable satisfaction. On request the Customer shall produce the policy of insurance to the Company; and
(c)   hold the proceeds of the insurance referred to in sub-clause (b)   on trust for the Company and not mix them with any other money, nor pay the proceeds into an overdrawn bank account.
8.4 The Customer’s right to possession of the Goods shall terminate immediately, if:
(a)   the Customer has a bankruptcy order made against it, or make an arrangement or composition with creditors, or otherwise take the benefit of any statutory provision for the time being in force for the relief of insolvent debtors, or (being a body corporate) convene a meeting of creditors (whether formal or informal), or enter into liquidation (whether voluntary or compulsory) except a solvent voluntary liquidation for the purpose only of reconstruction or amalgamation, or have a receiver and/or manager, administrator or administrative receiver appointed of its undertaking or any part thereof, or a resolution is passed or a petition presented to any court for winding up or for the granting of an administration order in respect of the Customer, or any proceedings are commenced relating to the Customer’s insolvency or possible insolvency; or
(b)   the Customer suffers or allows any execution, whether legal or equitable, to be levied on its property or be obtained against it or is unable to pay its debts within the meaning of section 123 of the Insolvency Act 1986, or it ceases to trade, or encumber or in any other way charge the Goods.
(c)   The Customer is late in paying for the Goods; or the Customer is late in paying for any other goods supplied by the Company.  
(d)   before title to the Goods passes to the Customer, the Customer becomes subject to any of the events listed in clause 8.4 (a)   or (b), or the Company reasonably believes that any such event is about to happen and notify the Customer accordingly, then:
(e)   without limiting any other right or remedy the Company may have, the Company may at any time require the Customer to deliver up the Goods and, if the Customer fails to do so promptly, the Company may (during normal business hours and with or without vehicles) enter any premises of the Customer or of any third party where the Goods are stored or kept in order to recover them. The Customer shall not keep the Goods at any premises in respect of which the Customer does not have the right to grant access to the Company.
9.1Any quotation by the Company for the provision of Goods will be deemed to be:
(a)   an invitation to treat (and shall not be an offer) by the Company to supply Goods on and subject to the Conditions; and
(b)   will be valid for 30 days only from the date of issue (unless otherwise stated on the quotation); and
(c)   subject to adjustment at any time up to delivery of the goods.
9.2Quotations are not binding on the Company and the Customer acknowledges that the Company may need to impose charges in addition to the charges set out in its quotation. The need to impose additional charges can arise for a number of reasons, including (but not limited to) circumstances where:
(a)   the Customer requests additional or different Goods (and the Company has agreed to make such additions or changes);
(b)   additional or different Goods are necessary in the opinion of the Company to comply with applicable health and safety or statutory requirements;
(c)   additional or different Goods are necessary in the opinion of the Company as a result of incorrect or misleading information having been provided to the Company;
(d)   it becomes apparent to the Company that the amount of Goods or the type of Goods needed to satisfy the Customer’s request(s) is different to what was notified to the Company when the quotation was provided;
(e)   the structure or surface to which any Goods are to be affixed is not suitable for that purpose in the opinion of the Company.
9.3Any payments which are to be made under the Contract shall be made at the times and in the amounts stipulated.  Without prejudice to or limiting any other rights that the Company may have, where any sums due to the Company are not paid in full in cleared funds by the due date for payment, the Company may:
(a)   suspend or cancel the supply of Goods to the Customer;
(b)   terminate all and any Contract(s) with the Customer upon giving written notice.
9.4All prices exclude VAT and delivery charges, which will be added to the total amount due.
9.5The Website contains a large number of Goods, and it is always possible that, despite the Company’s best efforts, some of the Goods listed on the Website may be incorrectly priced.  The Company will normally verify prices as part of its dispatch procedures so that, where the correct price of the Goods is less than the stated price, the Company will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Goods to the Customer.  If the correct price of the Goods is higher than the price stated on the Website, the Company will normally, at its discretion, either contact the Customer for instructions before dispatching the Goods, or reject the Order and notify the Customer of such rejection.
9.6The Company is under no obligation to provide the Goods to the Customer at the incorrect (lower) price, even after The Company has accepted the Order, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by the Customer as a mispricing.
9.7The Company accepts payment with credit cards, debit cards, and payment gateways specified on the Website and also by BACS transfer.
9.8Payment is required prior to dispatch unless the Credit Account Terms and Conditions have been agreed.
9.9Credit will only be given where the Customer is permitted to open a credit account with the Company (in accordance with Credit Account Terms and Conditions). The opening, use and termination of a credit account are subject to separate terms and conditions, and credit may be denied in the absence of an agreement with the Customer incorporating the credit account terms and conditions.
9.10All payments must be made in Sterling, and time is of the essence in respect of any payments to be made by the Customer. If the Customer is in default and for each month or part thereof that it remains in default, The Company reserves the right to levy interest (at not less than 8% above the Bank of England’s interest rate in force on the date that any payment to the Company from the Customer becomes due and at any subsequent rate where the Bank of England’s rate changes and the debt remains unpaid) and other charges in accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 as may be amended from time to time. The Company reserves the right to withhold dispatch of the Goods if the Customer’s account is in arrears.
9.11If any deposit is paid to the Company in respect of the Goods, then such deposit will not be refunded to the Customer under any circumstances. The Company will not pay interest on any deposit held.
9.12The Company shall have a general lien on all goods and property belonging to the Customer and such lien shall be exercisable in respect of all sums lawfully due from the Customer to the Company; the Company shall be entitled on the expiration of fourteen days’ notice to dispose of such goods or property in such manner and at such price as it thinks fit and to apply the proceeds toward such debt.
9.13The Company shall not entertain any request for liquidated damages, nor accept any retentions or withholdings of payment, nor accept any Pay Less Notices issued by the Customer.
9.14All payments by the Customer will be made without set-off or counterclaim, free and clear of and without deductions for any tax, levy, duty, charge, or withholdings of any kind now or in the future.
10.1The Company’s returns and refunds policy is as follows:
(a)   returns of non-faulty Goods shall only be refunded or replaced if the Customer contacts the Company within 5 working days following receipt of the Goods, informing the Company of the Customer’s wish to return them. The Goods must be returned in accordance with the Company’s standard authorisation procedure (please contact the Company on 01202 650900 or [email protected] for details).  Without limitation, the Customer must take reasonable care of the Goods in the Customer’s possession and the Goods must be returned at the Customer’s risk, in the same condition in which the Customer received them and securely re-packed in their original packaging. A handling charge of at least 25% of the invoiced value of the Goods will be levied.  Returns will not be accepted where the original packaging has been damaged.
(b)   Any non-faulty Goods which are non-stock Goods, or which are bespoke, made-to-measure, personalised, customised, made to the Customer’s specification or specially ordered (Restricted Goods) may not be returned;
(c)   If the Customer wishes to return Goods to the Company because they are damaged, missing or defective, any such damage, missing items and or defect must be notified to the Company as soon as possible, but in any event within 2 working days of the date that the Customer discovered or ought to have discovered the damage or defect, (within 24 hours if damage in transit is alleged), and no further use of the Goods must be made following discovery of the damage or defect.  The Company will examine the returned Goods and will notify the Customer of any refund via e-mail within a reasonable period of time.  The Company will usually process the refund due to the Customer as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day the Company confirmed to the Customer via e-mail that the Customer was entitled to a refund for the damaged or defective Goods. Goods returned by the Customer because of damage or defect may be replaced or refunded in full, at the discretion of the Company.
(d)   If the Customer wishes to return Goods to the Company because they are believed to be faulty, The Company reserves the right in the first instance to send an engineer to investigate the fault and inspect the Goods at the Location. In these instances, if the inspection finds the fault is a result of incorrect application, maintenance, or installation, or of misuse or vandalism, or any other cause that cannot be reasonably considered to be an inherent fault of the Goods caused by factory workmanship or defect due to non-conforming material, then a charge will be made for this inspection, and the return request will be refused. The Company reserves the right to require payment of this charge upfront prior to inspection and to refund it if/when the Goods are proved to be faulty. Where the dimensions of the Goods fall within acceptable industry standard manufacturer’s tolerances, the Goods shall not be considered faulty and cannot be returned.
(e)   The Company reserves the right to require the Buyer to return the Goods to any UK postal address other than that of the main trading address of the Company.
10.2The Company will usually refund any money received from the Customer using the same method originally used by the Customer to pay for the purchase.
10.3The Customer has an obligation to take reasonable care of the Goods whilst they are in their possession.  The Company may, at its discretion and without limitation, refuse to refund or replace any Goods if the Company considers that the Customer has failed to discharge this obligation.
10.4The Customer must not make any improper use of, or make any unauthorised modifications or repairs to the Goods, and the Customer must otherwise take reasonable care to avoid any risk of damage occurring to the Goods by any means.
10.5Notwithstanding the provisions of clause 10.1.(a)   which relate to fitness for purpose, unless otherwise agreed by the Company in writing in any particular instance, the Customer shall be solely responsible for selecting Goods which are suitable for use for the specific purpose for which they are to be used.
10.6For the avoidance of doubt, if any failure to discharge the obligation in clause 10.3 results in any loss or damage pursuant to clause 10, any such loss or damage may be considered as having been caused by the Customer or contributed to by the Customer.
11.1The Company’s liability to the Customer shall be limited as follows:
(a)   all warranties, representations, terms, conditions, and duties implied by law relating to fitness, quality or adequacy are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law;

(d)   without limitation or prejudice to any of the foregoing, the Customer shall indemnify and hold the Company, its partners, affiliates, officers and their employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable legal fees, made by any third party due to or arising from any breach of the Contract by the Customer, or the infringement by the Customer, or anybody else using the Customer’s account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.
11.2Nothing in these Conditions shall exclude or limit in any way the Company’s liability:
(a)   for death or personal injury caused by the Company’s negligence;
(b)   under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987;
(c)   for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or
(d)   for any matter for which it would be illegal for the Company to exclude, or attempt to exclude, the Company’s liability.

(a)   any damage to the Goods arising from the installation of the Goods by the Customer or by a third party on behalf of the Customer;
(b)   any loss, damage or injury to any person, property or thing arising from the installation of the Goods by the Customer or a third party on behalf of the Customer;
(c)   any costs, charges or expenses associated with and/or incurred by the Customer in connection with the installation of the Goods by the Customer or a third party on behalf of the Customer;
