1.LIFETIME WARRANTY AGAINST STRUCTURAL FAILURE
1.1 Dematic warrants to the Customer that if a Dematic product or part structurally fails during its Lifetime then that Dematic product or part will be repaired or replaced with a new or equivalent product or part free of charge, subject always to the terms and conditions of this warranty.

1.3 The Customer must immediately give written notice to Dematic and/or its authorised representative upon discovery of a suspected structural failure or any other defect in the Dematic product or part, and allow Dematic access to the place of installation for the purpose of inspecting the Dematic product or part and fulfilling its obligations under this warranty.
1.4 This warranty is not transferable and only applies to the Customer and any new and previously unused Dematic product or part. It does not otherwise apply and is subject to the exclusions set out in clause 4.
2.LIFETIME WARRANTY AGAINST DEFECTS IN MATERIALS AND WORKMANSHIP
2.1 Dematic warrants that for the Lifetime of any Dematic product or part, the Dematic product or part will be free from defects in materials and workmanship and that any Dematic product or part that, in Dematic’s opinion, has deteriorated due to defects in materials and/or workmanship by Dematic will be replaced or repaired by Dematic without cost to the Customer in accordance with the terms and conditions of this warranty.

The Customer must pay Dematic any such fees or charges promptly and in accordance with Dematic’s payment terms, failing which this Lifetime warranty will be deemed void and of no effect.
2.4 After the successful completion of each inspection, and subject to the findings of such inspection being to Dematic’s satisfaction (including with respect to the use and maintenance of the Dematic product or part), Dematic and/or its authorised representative will issue a certificate of warranty to cover the following 12-month period.
