Standard Warranty

Unless otherwise stated, Burbage Iron Craft offers a 10 year workmanship warranty on metal gates and metal fencing, and 5 years on wooden gates. The workmanship warranty covers you against product defects relating to the manufacture of the products, for example, if a weld in a joint breaks or if a timber joint comes apart. The warranty does not cover rusting of metal products or the ingress of rot in wooden products because it is up to the end user to regularly inspect and maintain their products. The electro-galvanising and powder coated finish on metal gates and fencing does provide added rust resistance however it is not a 100% rust proof guarantee. Pressure treated treatment on wooden gates provides added resistance to wood rot and insect infestation, however is not a 100% guarantee against the inset of rot and insect infestation. There are too many factors outside the control of Burbage Iron Craft that could cause rusting or wood rot, such as location to the coast, adverse weather conditions and vandalism.

Without prejudice to any other right which the Company may have, the Company shall be entitled to exercise a general lien or right of retention of all Goods in the Company’s possession which are or are intended to become the Purchaser’s property in regard to all monies due to the Company from the Purchaser. Pursuant to such lien or right the Company shall be entitled without notice to the Purchaser to sell all or any of such Goods in any manner and to keep the proceeds in diminution of such monies and of all costs and expenses incurred of effecting such sale.

(c) Until property in the Goods passes to the Purchaser the relationship between the Company and the Purchaser shall be that of bailor and bailee and the Purchaser shall store the Goods in such a way that they are readily identifiable as the property of the Company.

(d) If before the property in the Goods passes to the Purchaser the Goods are sold by the Purchaser, such sale or sales shall be deemed to be on behalf of the Company, but without imposing any liability on the Company to the sub-purchaser, and the Purchaser shall hold such part of the proceeds of sale or rights arising therefrom against the sub-purchaser as represents the sum due to the Company for such Goods as trustee for the Company and the Purchaser shall keep such part of the proceeds of such sale separate from its other monies and account to the Company accordingly.

(e) If payment of the price of the Goods or any part of it is overdue or if it appears to the Company that the Purchaser is or may be insolvent, the Company may require the Purchaser to deliver up the Goods to the Company and, if the Purchaser fails to do so forthwith, the Purchaser shall permit the Company to recover and resell the Goods and by its servants or agents enter upon the Purchaser’s premises (or such other the premises where the Goods are stored or situated) for that purpose.

(f) The Purchaser shall not be entitled to pledge or in any way charge by way of security for any indebtedness any of the Goods which remain the property of the Company but if the Purchaser does so or purports to do so, all monies owing by the Purchaser to the Company shall (without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Company) forthwith become due and payable.


  1. The Company will only accept liability for:-

(a)       damage to the Goods caused in transit if the same is externally visible, is notified to the Company and the carrier (if not delivered by the Company) on receipt of Goods by the Purchaser and if the Goods so damaged are immediately returned to the Company or the carrier or signed for as damaged by the Purchaser on receipt (whichever is applicable);

(b)       non arrival, if the same is notified to the Company within 7 working days from the day that the Company informed the Purchaser that the Goods or the relevant consignment thereof were due to arrive.
