We do not accept responsibility for any preparation work based on such specifications. We endeavour to ensure product descriptions are correct but there may be some colour deviance and small deviances in size tolerance while in the production process which are considered acceptable manufacturing and industry standard tolerances. Where possible we will always ensure to provide products as per your requirements however you are responsible for ensuring the required specifications are met and should employ a professional where possible – architect or building contractor.

The Company reserves the right to slightly change the Products to a similar product if the original Product is unavailable. The Company shall use its reasonable endeavours to inform you of any such substitutions.
