Shapescaper T&C’s Warranty


All SHAPESCAPER™ products are covered by a 10 year guarantee to resupply structurally failed products. The warranty commences from the time of initial retail purchase. In order to gain the maximum life from your SHAPESCAPER™ product, correct installation procedures should be followed. Most conditions require the installer to apply a protective coating such as Bitumen or an Epoxy Mastic to any surface that is in contact with soil.

The protective “rust” patina formed on weathering steel such as REDCOR® Steel is influenced by environmental conditions and can vary across different locations. While the steel is developing this protective layer it is important that the steel is subject to cycles of both wet and dry conditions. This is a natural process and can take up two or three years to stabilise. Variations in the consistency and hue of the patina are not covered under this warranty. Areas exposed to high salinity, high acidity, corrosive chemicals and environments that are exposed to constantly wet conditions inhibit the formation of a stable protective patina. The use of salt or other chemical means to accelerate the weathering process can permanently damage the steels capacity to form a stable protective layer.

This Warranty DOES NOT cover:

    1. Structural damage ie. malfunction or failure of a product caused or contributed to by:
      (a) improper installation or failure to follow installation and site preparation instructions;
      (b) abnormal environmental conditions eg. areas exposed to high salinity, high acidity, corrosive chemicals and environments that are exposed to constantly wet conditions;
