10. SUITABILITY OF THE SITE
- Irrespective of whether the contract provides for the Company to install any goods or equipment in any buildings or premises, the Customer is solely responsible for the suitability of the site for the installation of the goods and vice versa, for obtaining all necessary consents and approvals under planning and building regulations and bye-laws and for the preparation of the site, the construction of foundations and the provision of services so that the site is suitable to receive the goods. The Company will if requested provide drawings and specifications showing the site requirements for the goods based on normal requirements in a suitable location, but does not thereby warrant that the site as prepared by the Customer will be suitable or satisfactorily prepared. The quotation is based on the assumption that ample side room and head room will be available for installation of the door.
- Should any modification be required to the building structure or the construction of the door, these are not included in the quotation and thus will be the responsibility of the Customer.
- Adequate solid fixing for both the door and the tracks must be provided by the Customer. In particular, for erections to steel columns, the provision of special plate work for bracket supports and the welding of these plates must be provided unless otherwise specified.
- The price quoted is based on the understanding that site conditions allow for mounting of a chain lifting block (for erection purposes) above the centre of the opening concerned. If site conditions do not allow for these mounting facilities, it is the responsibility of the Customer to advise the Company prior to installation so that alternate arrangements can be made for lifting and the quoted price can be adjusted accordingly.
- For the purpose of installation work, it will be necessary for a 240 volt power supply to be available in the near vicinity of the opening to facilitate welding and the use of power tools where applicable.
11. DRAWING AND INFORMATION
- The Company is entitled to assume that all drawings, descriptions, specifications and other information supplied by the Customer to the Company, whether written or verbal, is in all respects complete, accurate and entirely suitable for the Customer’s requirements.
- Unless otherwise expressly agreed, the Company shall have no responsibility for the performance, suitability or durability of goods or any materials or workmanship comprised therein to the extent that the same is manfactured in accordance with the Customer’s designs, drawings, standards, measurements or specifications.
- The Company is entitled to assume that on the delivery date the site will be reasonably accesible, sufficient to facilitate installation and that any preparatory work or alteration to the site to be carried out by the Customer including any works specifically referred to herein or in the quotation will have been completed.
The Company reserves the right to sub-contract or assign the whole or any part of the contract.
13. APPLICABLE LAW
The Contract shall in all respects be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law and the Customer hereby submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts.
