    3. Stan Bond will endeavour to alert the Client’s via phone, fax, email or sms message about delays before any expected completion date, however failure to do so does not constitute a failure of Stan Bond’s contractual obligation.
    4.

    4. Where Stan Bond is required to install the Products, the Client warrants that the structure of the premises or framing upon which these Products are to be installed is sound and will sustain the installation and work incidental thereto, and that the Client must advise Stan Bond of the precise location of all wiring or plumbing that may be hidden behind any surface at the installation site and clearly mark the same. Stan Bond shall not be liable for any claims, demands, losses, damages, costs and expenses howsoever caused or arising should the premises or framing be unable to accommodate the installation or for any damage to hidden wiring or pipes (whether or not the Client is aware of their exact location).

  8. Product Terms and Warnings
    1. The Client acknowledges and accept that:
      1. whilst fabric and component manufacturers make every effort to match dye lots, paints, weaves, colours or shades, these may vary between batches of product and/or between sale samples and the actual Product supplied; and
      2. fabric and component manufacturers cannot guarantee to produce perfectly uniform patterned product, therefore there is no guarantee that patterned product will match perfectly when installed; and
      3. the manufacturing process for blinds, awnings and the like may require seams and joins and the appearance of these may be affected by light source and in particular the construction of the chosen product.
      4. mismatching of patterned fabric may result due to the inherent nature of fabric as mentioned in the above clauses; and
      5. fabric flaws, ripples or marks will be considered viewed from at least one (1) metre of distance in an even light; and
      6. painted and powder coated surfaces will have a uniform appearance in colour and texture when viewed from at least one (1) metre of distance in an even light; and
      7. all powder coated and painted surfaces shall be free of excessive scratches that penetrate through the layers of coatings to the bare metal or surface below as per AS3715-2002.
      8. Child safety restraints will be installed where necessary by law.
    2. The Client accepts that due to the nature of fabric, the finished Products may not roll up or sit level in either the up or down positions. Although Stan Bond shall endeavour to fit the Products to the best possible placement, the Client shall accept that framing that the Products are being attached to may not be square and/or plumb.
    3. The Client accepts that Fabrics can have a tendency to ripple, smile or sag especially when installed on rollers wider than 2.5mts. The client accepts that this effect is normal and commercially acceptable.
    4. The Client accepts that tension on fabric (in particular applying to Ziptrak and Zipscreen blinds) may cause some rippling or sagging and this is considered accepted industry standards.
    5. The Client accepts that the installation of security doors will be fitted in a best average fit manner to take into account framing that may not be square, and as a result some tapered visible gaps may occur.
    6. Stan Bond shall be indemnified from any damage that may be caused (including, breakage to tiles) during the removing of existing fittings in preparation of the installation of the Products.
    7. Where Stan Bond causes damages during installation (including but not limited to tiles, wall fixtures, bricks and plaster), Stan Bond shall replace or repair the damaged parts to a commercially acceptable standard and/or as close to the original part as possible. The Client therefore accepts that some variation may occur due to dye lots, patterns of tiles or damaged parts due to age of the parts and availability of such replacements.
  9. Access
    1. The Client shall ensure that Stan Bond has clear and free access to the work site at all times to enable them to undertake the works. Stan Bond shall not be liable for any loss or damage to the site (including, without limitation, damage to pathways, driveways and concreted or paved or grassed areas) unless due to the negligence of Stan Bond.
  10. Title
    1. Stan Bond and the Client agree that ownership of the Products shall not pass until:
      1. the Client has paid Stan Bond all amounts owing to Stan Bond; and
      2. the Client has met all of its other obligations to Stan Bond.
    2. Receipt by Stan Bond of any form of payment other than cash shall not be deemed to be payment until that form of payment has been honoured, cleared or recognised.
    3. It is further agreed that:
      1. until ownership of the Products passes to the Client in accordance with clause 1 that the Client is only a bailee of the Products and must return the Products to Stan Bond on request.
      2. the Client holds the benefit of the Client’s insurance of the Products on trust for Stan Bond and must pay to Stan Bond the proceeds of any insurance in the event of the Products being lost, damaged or destroyed.
      3. the Client must not sell, dispose, or otherwise part with possession of the Products other than in the ordinary course of business and for market value. If the Client sells, disposes or parts with possession of the Products then the Client must hold the proceeds of any such act on trust for Stan Bond and must pay or deliver the proceeds to Stan Bond on demand.
      4. the Client should not convert or process the Products or intermix them with other goods but if the Client does so then the Client holds the resulting product on trust for the benefit of Stan Bond and must sell, dispose of or return the resulting product to Stan Bond as it so directs.
      5. the Client irrevocably authorises Stan Bond to enter any premises where Stan Bond believes the Products are kept and recover possession of the Products.
      6. Stan Bond may recover possession of any Products in transit whether or not delivery has occurred.
      7. the Client shall not charge or grant an encumbrance over the Products nor grant nor otherwise give away any interest in the Products while they remain the property of Stan Bond.
      8. Stan Bond may commence proceedings to recover the Price of the Products sold notwithstanding that ownership of the Products has not passed to the Client.
  11. Defects, Warranties and Returns, Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA)
