Telescope 2016 Warranty
Frames and Powder Coat: If your Telescope powder coat aluminum frame or marine grade polymer frame fails structurally during normal usage within the applicable warranty period (as defined below), we will repair, refinish or replace the frame without charge, parts and labor included. (In the case of discontinued models or finishes, we will replace the item with the closest comparable current model.) Products covered by our frame warranty are identified in our catalog as either 15/5, 15/3, 15/1 or no identification at all. 15/5 indicates a frame warranty period of 15 years in residential use/5 years in contract use. 15/3 indicates a frame warranty period of 15 years in residential use/3 years in contract use. 15/1 indicates a frame warranty period of 15 years in residential use/1 year in contract use. No indication indicates a frame warranty period of 1 year in residential use and that there is no frame warranty in contract use. All warranty periods commence on the date of purchase. Contract use includes any rental, business, commercial, institutional, or other non-residential use.
The powder coat finish on our powder coat aluminum frame furniture is warranted against peeling, cracking or blistering for a period of 3 years from the date of purchase. Failure of the powder coat finish due to abrasion, including abrasion caused by stacking the furniture against other furniture or scraping against other surfaces, is not covered by this warranty. Exposure to salt water or salt air may cause powder coat finishes that have been damaged by abrasion to blister due to oxidization of the metal; such blistering and oxidization are not covered by this warranty.
The following products are not covered by our frame and powder coat warranties: table tops, umbrellas, umbrella bases, wood furniture, cushions, slings, straps, wicker fibers, and folding aluminum furniture.
Non-Glass Table Tops: Non-glass table tops are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects for 3 years from date of purchase, except Werzalit table tops which are warranted for 1 year from date of purchase. Fading or staining of the table surface is not included under warranty. Tables must not be stored upside down.
Umbrellas and Umbrella Bases: Umbrella frames and umbrella bases are warranted to be free of manufacturing defects for either 1 year or 3 years from the date of purchase, as identified in our catalog and price lists by the following indicators: 3/3 indicates 3 years in residential use/3 years in contract use; 1/1 indicates 1 year in residential use/1 year in contract use. Cast iron and steel bases and cast iron weights on pedestal bases, if not properly maintained, will rust if the finish is scratched through to the metal. Rust is not covered under warranty. Umbrella covers/fabric are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects for 1 year from the date of purchase.
Wood Furniture, Cushions, Slings, and Folding Aluminum Furniture: Wood furniture, cushions, slings, and folding aluminum furniture are warranted to be free of manufacturing defects for 1 year from the date of purchase in residential use only. They are not warranted for contract use.
Vinyl Straps: Vinyl straps are warranted against breakage and gross discoloration for a period of 3 years from the date of purchase. In the case of breakage or gross discoloration (our judgment), replacement straps will be provided but labor is not included.
Wicker Fibers: Wicker fibers featured in our Wicker Collections are warranted by the fiber manufacturers for 3 years from the date of purchase. Please refer to pgs. 15 & 16 of this Price Index or contact our Customer Service Department for details on this wicker fiber warranty.
Other Warranty Limitations and Exclusions: The natural weathering of wood finishes, breakage of glass, fading, staining and mildewing of fabrics, slings and strapping, the compression of cushion fillings, and the rusting of umbrella bases or pedestal bases are not covered under our warranties.
Freeze or ice damage is not covered by our warranties. Furniture stored outside or in other cold storage should be drained of any water. If allowed to freeze inside the furniture, water can damage the tubing.
These warranties do not cover the failure of furniture caused by acts of God, accident, neglect, improper shipping or handling, or by unreasonable or abusive use, and these warranties are void if our care and maintenance instructions were not properly followed. Furniture used in a contract (commercial) setting is not warranted unless it is specifically designated for contract or commercial use in our catalog.
All warranties are to the original purchaser from authorized dealers only. Warranties are not transferable. Warranties are for repair, replacement or substitution only, in our sole discretion. Warranty service of any kind does not extend the warranty period.
