Timber Doors - Guarantee

Larnec’s timber doors are a superior product.  Larnec’s timber doors are made to meet a demand for a door that is durable, competitively priced, locally manufactured, freely available, easy to work with and retain its attractiveness for many years. Larnec’s doors meet all of these criteria.

Subject to terms and conditions set forth herein, your doors manufactured by Larnec Doors & Systems, are guaranteed by the manufacturer for two years from the date of shipment by the manufacturer to be of good material and workmanship, free from defects which render them unserviceable or unfit for the use for which they were manufactured.

1.    Natural variations in the colour, texture or grain patterns of the wood or MDF are not to be considered defects.

2.    Doors must be accorded reasonable treatment by the purchaser and should be stored or hung in dry buildings and not in damp moist or freshly plastered areas where the moisture content of the skins may increase abnormally leading to the development of warp.

3.    The utility or structural strength must not be impaired in the fitting of the door, the application of hardware, or cutting and altering of the door for lights, louvres, panels or any special details.  A maximum of 3mm may be trimmed from any door.

4.    Normal show through of frame components in doors shall not be considered a defect.

5.    All external and solid core doors must not be hung with less than 3 x 100mm hinges.

6.    External doors should be hung in a weather protected area.

7.    Immediately after fitting and before hanging the entire door including the top and bottom edges must receive two coats of undercoat and two finish coats of paint. Enamel paint must be used on external doors and acyetic may be used on internals only. Doors exposed to direct sunlight must be finished with light reflective colours to reduce the drying effect of sunlight on the door surface, which may cause warping to occur.  Hollow core doors should only be painted with flat, semi-gloss or satin finishes.  DARK COLOURS MAY VOID WARRANTY.

8.    Regular maintenance must be provided to prevent deterioration.

9.    Warp shall be interpreted as meaning the cupping/bowing or twisting of doors.  It refers to distortion within the door itself and not its relationship to the jambs or frame in which it is hung.  Warp exceeding 5mm shall be considered a defect. 

10.    The guarantee against warp does not apply to the following:

10.1    34mm and greater in thickness where doors are wider than 920mm or higher than 2135mm.

10.2    Doors with face veneers of different species.

10.3    Doors that are improperly hung or do not swing freely.

10.4    External flush doors, which have been painted or stained dark colours, or different colours each face, as to allow the exposed face to lose moisture through the absorption of heat energy.

11.    Doors will only be guaranteed if made to Australian Standards 2688 - 1984

12.     Experience has demonstrated that when warp occurs after doors have been delivered to storage or building sites, it is usually due to improper storage or adverse moisture conditions after hanging and not to faulty manufacture.  The manufacturer will accept no responsibility for doors when moisture content of the timber falls below 12% or exceeds 18%.

13.    The manufacturer agrees to repair or replace at its option, unfinished and in the form originally supplied and without charge, any door found to be defective within the meaning of the guarantee.  The manufacturer will not be held responsible for additional charges of hanging, painting or other charges arising from the replacement of doors.  Any such defects must be brought to the attention of the manufacturer when discovered and in any event within two years from the date of shipment by the manufacturer.

14.    The manufacturer is not liable to reimburse any purchaser for doors repaired or replaced without the prior written consent of the manufacturer to such repair or replacement.

15.    The manufacturer will not assume responsibility for doors, which become defective because of failure to follow these conditions or for hazards of shipment or storage, after the doors leave the control of the manufacturer.

16.    Obviously, the manufacturer cannot assume responsibility for conditions wholly beyond its control.  The manufacturer should, however, be consulted promptly if excessive warping occurs to assist in overcoming the difficulty.
