Plain English Pool and Garden Fencing Warranty

GramLine® ChildGard™ Pool and Garden Fencing Plain English Warranty

The benefits under our warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies under the Australian Consumer Law.

Gram Engineering Pty Ltd (Gram), now trading as GramLine®, was established over 40 years ago and we have been manufacturing and supplying our range of ChildGard™ Pool and Garden fencing since that time.

GramLine® ChildGard™ Pool or Garden fence is manufactured from prime quality materials. GramLine® warrant that GramLine® ChildGard™ will be free from perforation by natural weathering and that the powder coating on your fence will not flake or peel for 3 years from the date of installation.

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund of a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

Ensure that Your GramLine® ChildGard™ Warranty is Valid

The GramLine® ChildGard™ Pool or Garden fence paint finish as supplied must not be scratched, abraded, damaged in any way, or coated with any other paints or incompatible material.

Your GramLine® ChildGard™ Pool or Garden fence must be maintained. This means that during dry weather the fence is hosed with water on a regular basis. Your fence must not be washed with pool, ground, or bore water.

GramLine® ChildGard™ Pool and Garden fencing should not be installed where it can be splashed with chlorinated or salty pool water or with other corrosive substances. Avoid contact with salty, acidic or corrosive soils, and avoid contact with weedicides or pesticides, as these can be acidic or corrosive. GramLine® ChildGard™ Pool or Garden fencing should not come into contact with dissimilar metals such as copper or lead, or with water run-off from these metals.

The warranty does not apply when the GramLine® ChildGard™ Pool or Garden fence is installed within 1 kilometre of a marine or corrosive industrial environment or where the fence is within 1.5 metres of the edge (splash zone) of a swimming pool.

Installation must be in accordance with applicable local, state and Federal building or pool fence legislation, good building practices, and fasteners should comply with Australian Standard AS3566.2 2002. All concrete around post should be sloped to ensure water drainage is away from the post.

All paint finishes fade and lose gloss as a result of natural weathering. Dark colours will generally show more fading than light colours. GramLine® ChildGard™ Pool or Garden fencing is finished with commercial quality powder coatings, however GramLine® cannot warrant against natural fading or loss of gloss of the paint finish.
