Limited Warranty

Marine Tuft has taken every step to ensure this carpet is of the highest possible quality including having the finished product rated by a leading Australian based textile testing facility (AWTA). AWTA provides results on a 1 to 8 scale where 8 is the maximum attainable. Marine/outdoor carpet manufactured by Marine Tuft has attained a rating of 7 – 8 for resistance to UV Degradation, Color Retention and exposure to Salt Water. It is possibly the highest rated Polypropylene carpet available. However, Australian marine/outdoor conditions are regarded as some of the harshest in the world and no conditioning will completely prevent some reaction to constant exposure to direct sunlight. Some color change should be expected if these conditions are to be endured. Notwithstanding, the construction of the carpet should not degrade however severe the exposure. 

This product is resistant to staining from most materials but will not withstand heat in excess of 130 degrees C, either from direct application or radiation. Claims where the yarn has clearly melted from excessive heat from any source will not be accepted.

The product warranty covers excessive wear, UV degradation, and excessive fading. Claims for failure of the product to meet our expectations in these respects will be dealt with on a pro-rata basis (100% first year-50% final year) over the periods listed below. Any claim for failure of the backing which is recognized as valid by Marine Tuft will be fully honored for the full appropriate period of the warranty. 
In all warranty matters Marine Tuft reserves the right to accept or deny claims or vary the amount of any accepted settlement regardless of circumstances. Marine Tuft also reserves the right to inspect any product which is the object of a claim prior to accepting that claim as valid.
Warranty Periods:

Indoor 5 years, outdoor 2 years. (1st year material and installation, subsequent years, material only)


All claims must be processed back through the original chain of supply and be supported by the relevant invoicing. Marine Tuft requires a sample of the faulty product such that research can be carried out to prevent future occurrences of any product fault.

Note... Products sold as specials from our website do not carry any warranty and are sold by MarineTuft and accepted by the customer without any offered recourse.
