Paxton Access 5 Year Guarantee
We are delighted to announce that the guarantee on most of our products is five years from the date of manufacture. It is intended that this Guarantee should be in plain English, in large print and very clear to all. Should you have any problem understanding it, or think that it is ambiguous in any way, please let us know.
Why we're doing it
The returns rates of our products have always been low and our records have shown a continuing improvement in recent years. For several years we have been replacing products out of warranty where we have thought it likely that a manufacturing fault has caused the problem. We thought it would be good to formalise this benefit and offer it to all our customers. Our customers include our distributors and customers who have bought our products from our distributors.
Equipment that is guaranteed
All current product lines made by Paxton Access will benefit from a warranty against electronic failure. This guarantee will be for a period of 5 years from the date that the particular product is manufactured. This is subject to the equipment being installed in accordance with the instructions and used appropriately in suitable conditions.
All products supplied by Paxton Access that are subject to mechanical wear will be guaranteed against mechanical failure that is due to an inherent manufacturing defect. This is subject to the equipment being installed in accordance with the instructions and used appropriately in suitable conditions. It is also limited by the maximum number of operations for any item of equipment where this is specified.
Proximity keyfobs have a lifetime guarantee against failure in normal use.
Details of the guarantee
Paxton Access will repair, replace or recondition at its option any of the equipment that is guaranteed. As an alternative (which will usually be reserved for customers outside the UK) Paxton Access will have the option of providing a credit for the cost of the equipment.
Unless some other arrangement has been confirmed by Paxton Access in writing, the guarantee is subject to the equipment being returned suitably packaged to Paxton Access for testing. A note should be enclosed explaining the fault and giving a name and telephone number of a person who understands the fault found with the equipment. The 5 year guarantee applies to products bought after 1 January 2000.
Limits to Paxton Access' liability
Paxton Access does not accept liability for any consequential losses due to the failure of any item of equipment. Paxton Access' maximum liability for the failure of any item of equipment will be the purchase price the customer has paid for the equipment. This does not exclude any statutory obligation.
Damage caused to equipment during installation or by fire or lightning, wilful damage, inappropriate electrical loading and misuse are examples of things that are not covered by the above guarantee.
An example of inappropriate use is: Proximity cards are designed to be carried in a card holder, wallet or purse or in some other way that will not expose the cards to continuous flexing. Mechanical failure of the wires will result. Proximity keyfobs should be used in these cases - for example for storing in trouser pockets.
An example of a maximum number of operations is the head of a CARDLOCK magnetic stripe reader which is rated for 1,000,000 swipes. This would be the limit of the guarantee period. Consequential loss
We confirm that Paxton Access will not accept liability for any consequential loss due to the failure of its equipment or services. The warranty is limited to the value of the equipment as stated above.
