ColourFence Fence Warranty & Guarantee

Provided ColourFence materials have been installed as per Climar Industries Ltd guidelines*, your fence materials will be warrantied for a period of 25 years. (See what is not covered, i.e., concrete post installations)

The materials are warranted against corrosion to perforation by weathering in the natural elements and against paint flake and peel.
Materials are warrantied against inherent manufacturing and productions defects.

Should you experience problems during the lifetime of the guarantee, which are not the result of vandalism, accident, misuse, or unsuitable environments, your ColourFence products will be replaced free of charge.

What is covered?
Climar Industries Ltd has been operating in the UK and Ireland for over 20 years and has built a reputation for providing quality products and exceptional customer service. Our 25-year warranty is a testament to our credibility as a company with high standards and a commitment to excellence.

With our warranty, you can rest assured that your Colourfence, ColourRail, Colourgate or ColourShed will remain serviceable and looking great for at least 25 years, as long it is used and maintained properly. Our warranty also emphasises the sustainability of the lowest lifetime costs.

Your warranty begins from the date of installation. The warranty provides cover against inherent manufacturing and productions defects, provided materials have been installed in accordance with Climar Industries ltd guidelines.

Our 25-year warranty applies to all Colorbond steel manufactured products against faulty coating or production issues, as long as they have been installed, maintained and used according to our guidelines.

This warranty provides protection against any product failures resulting from manufacturing defects that may have arisen during the production process.

What is not covered?
It is important to keep in mind that warranties are intended to cover only defects that occurred during the manufacturing process. As a result, we cannot assume responsibility for or provide coverage for issues that arise due to:

    • Incorrect fitting or installation.
      Damage sustained during handling, storage, erection or after erection
      Mistreatment, neglect, or insufficient maintenance. To ensure the products longevity, we recommend regularly and properly cleaning the surfaces to prevent the accumulation of any dirt or corrosive materials, as well as lubricating any moving parts during the warranty period.
    • Movement of the ground or structural defects of any building.
    • Storm, tempest, flood, fire, lightening or other acts of God or anything beyond our reasonable control, such as forced entry or vandalism.
    • Any attachments or additions either permanent or temporary, that compromise the structural integrity of the product.
    • ColourFence® that has been attached to concrete fence posts. We do not approve any installations that rely on the integrity of products or materials for our products performance, such as concrete or alternative posts structures.
    • Superficial corrosion resulting from contact with other non-galvanised ferrous materials.
    • Installations for ColourRail® and powder coated items only that are within 1km of severe industrial or other corrosive environments***
    • Normal ‘wear and tear’ on products in use.
    • A natural reduction in paint gloss.

*** Warranty can be provided for these products on a case-by-case basis. Additional anticorrosion pre-treatments may be required. A separate and specific Warranty will need to be agreed.
