“WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK”
3 YEAR GUARANTEE
Pave Tool Innovators (PTI) & Great North Hardscape (GNH) have build their reputations through engineering & supplying products that exceed consumer expectations for quality and durability. Our 3 year warranty covers all PTI tools from manufacturing defects* in materials and workmanship for PTI product and for the original purchaser only. This warranty is non-transferable.
PTI / GNH. will repair or replace at its discretion any manufacturing defect in these products free of charge. The 3 year guarantee does not cover normal wear and tear**, accident, lost, stolen, construction site damage, improper care or cleaning, non-standard usage, collateral damage*** or negligence. Product must be purchased from an authorized PTI / GNH. dealer and MUST be returned to us for evaluation.
A manufacturing defect exists if the product departs from its intended design. Defective materials or workmanship are covered by the 3 year Guarantee.
**WEAR AND TEAR
Wear and tear is damage that naturally and inevitably occurs as a result of normal use. Moving parts will wear out and protective pads will deteriorate and discolour over time. While we choose the best materials available for the application, all materials degrade over time with use and exposure to the elements. In addition, bend, lost or broken (not limited to) Cotter Pins, Bolt, Nuts etc.. are not under warranty.
Collateral damage is any physical injury or bodily harm done to job site personnel or bystanders and/or damage to construction materials and equipment present on the job site at the time of claim. PTI / GNH. will not be held liable or responsible for such damages as a result of using the tools. It is the sole responsibility of the job site foreman and the machine/tool operators to ensure the safety of all workers by fully inspecting the tools & equipment before each use in their entirety. Pre-use areas of inspection include, but are not limited to, hooks, chains, connections, pins, clamping surfaces, nuts, bolts, pads, welds, knuckles, joints, handles and pressure points for signs of weakness, cracking, crazing, loose connections and general soundness, etc. Never use a tool that appears to be unsafe, bent, damaged, mounted with worn out straps or rusty old chains. As with all lifting apparatus, crew safety is the number one concern and every measure possible must be performed to keep your crew safe.
NEVER, EVER DWELL UNDER A MOVING OR A HOISTED LOAD. KEEP ALL BODY PARTS FREE AND CLEAR OF DANGER ZONES. WORKER SAFETY IS ALWAYS #1.
DOES MY PRODUCT ISSUE QUALIFY FOR WARRANTY COVERAGE?
Our 3 year warranty program covers PTI / GNH products that legitimately fail due to a manufacture defect. Use your judgment when assessing whether your product or your customers product is likely to be covered under the 3 year guarantee. We do not cover products that no longer work due to wear and tear or negligence. See wear and tear section for details. We do not cover tools if they are modified in any event. Negligence is application misuse and/or operator exceeding the lifting capacity which is specified on each tool and in our literature, if you’re ever unsure please contact our office for support at 1.860.870.8665 in the USA or 1.800.720.7627 in Canada.
