2. BASIS OF CONTRACT
2.1 These Conditions apply to the Contract to the exclusion of any other terms that the Customer seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are
implied by law, trade custom, practice or course of dealing.
2.2 The Order constitutes an offer by the Customer to purchase the Goods in accordance with these Conditions. The Customer is responsible for
ensuring that the terms of the Order are complete and accurate.
2.3 The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when the Supplier sends an email to the Customer saying that the Order has been accepted.
2.4 The Customer waives any right it might otherwise have to rely on any term endorsed upon, delivered with or contained in any documents of the
Customer that is inconsistent with these Conditions.
2.5 The description of the Goods in our website, showroom, catalogues, brochures or other form of advertisement do not form part of the Contract
nor have any contractual force.
2.6 Any samples, drawings or advertising produced by the Supplier and any illustrations contained in the Supplier’s catalogues or brochures are
produced for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the Goods referred to in them. Metal patterns, wood grain, colours and textures
vary between samples of the same wood and metal finishes. The Supplied does not guarantee a specific grain or colour within the same wood
material or a specific pattern or exact colour distribution on a metal finish for the final Goods.
2.7 All the doors outlined in the Supplier’s brochure/website have been pre-finished and do not necessarily represent the exact colouring of the
wood. There will always be some variation not only between printed copy and real product, but between products photographed in different
light conditions and wood of different ages and finishes. The colours in the brochure/website are a guide only and shall not form part of this
contract.

frames, hinges, locks and weatherseals fitted.

2.10 Any quotation for the Goods provided by us shall not constitute an offer. A quotation shall only be valid for a maximum period of 30 days
including the date of the quotation unless we expressly withdraw it at an earlier time.


3. GOODS
3.1 Due to the natural characteristics of wood, no two pieces of wood are the same. This means that no two doors will appear exactly the same
and may have colour and grain variations.
3.2 Due to seasonal changes and the characteristics of natural wood, a small amount of natural movement will occur that may result in some
hairline or otherwise minor splits or cracking. These splits and any minor grain defects are considered normal and can appear on any natural
wood products. Regular maintenance in terms of filing and refinishing might be required.
3.3 Natural wood that receives frequent exposure to sun, wind, rain or other external environmental elements may change in appearance over
time through lightening or darkening and natural splits that occur may become more prevalent or noticeable if regular maintenance is not
undertaken. Full door protection is recommended to minimise the impact of these occurrences and reduce maintenance frequency.
3.4 Metal finishes, including steel and bronze finishes, similarly carry possible unique visual and behavioural variations including oxidisation, that
may cause lightening, darkening or another variation of the metal changing colour over time.
3.5 Urban Front may manufacture Goods made to your special requirements, subject to any of our limitations, it is your responsibility to ensure that
any and all information you provide is accurate.
3.6 All our doors are supplied with full factory clear oil or lacquered finish unless otherwise requested at the time of order.
3.7 It is strongly recommended that all our doors are protected by a substantial canopy, porch or soffit without gaps, that covers and overhangs
the door by at least half the length of the door to provide protection from the elements and excess water, with full coverage protection on
horizontally grooved and/or stainless steel cladded doors and/or doors located in high-exposure areas i.e coastal areas.
3.8 We do not recommend fumed oak, pivot or flush doors to be installed without full porch or canopy protection that completely covers and
protects the door from the elements and accept no liability regarding future performance or deterioration of materials should this occur.
3.9 The Customer shall indemnify the Supplier against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including any direct, indirect or
consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal and other professional costs and expenses) suffered
or incurred by the Supplier in connection with any claim made against the Supplier for actual or alleged infringement of a third party’s
intellectual property rights arising out of or in connection with the Supplier’s use of the Specification. This Clause 3.9 shall survive termination of
the Contract.
3.10 The Supplier reserves the right to amend the specification of the Goods if required by any applicable statutory or regulatory requirement, and
the Supplier shall notify the Customer in any such event.
3.11 The Supplier’s doors come with a 5 years manufacturing warranty. You can view the details of this warranty on our website or request a copy
from our office (telephone number: 01494 778 787).
3.12 Doors ordered specifically to exclude Urban Front factory finish will not be covered by our warranty.
3.13 Doors that are ordered specifically to incorporate 3rd party supplier materials that are not standard Urban Front approved suppliers, including
but not limited to, door handles; or doors that are requested by you with amendments outside our standard specification ranges, will not be
covered by our manufacturing warranty.
3.14 Urban Front manufactures Goods to order on an average 8-10 week lead time for standard products and 12-16 weeks on bespoke and steel
products. This timing is not guaranteed and may be extended depending on the exact Goods ordered, availability of materials at the time of the
Order, location of delivery and any other internal or external influences that may impact the production timing.
3.15 An estimate for the timing of production and delivery will be given at the quotation stage and a latest best estimate will be confirmed at the time
the Order is placed.
3.16 The Supplier shall try to keep to the estimated lead time quoted however this is only an estimate and the Supplier cannot be held liable for any
expenses resulting for any delay in delivery. At no circumstances should installers be booked for installation before the order is delivered.
3.17 In the event that our products are stored or maintained in any way contrary to our published recommendations (see our brochure/website or
request information copies from our office) the Supplier cannot accept responsibility for the performance of its products.


4. DELIVERY
4.1 We will send you an e-mail notification when the Goods are Ready for Delivery and re-confirm any relevant details with you at this time,
including but not limited to, the name of the receiver, the delivery address and instructions for unloading the Goods. We may additionally

delivery team have been unable to make contact within 3 days, we will follow up with an additional e-mail asking you to arrange delivery.

provisions and provided you are not liable for extra charges.

costs of storing and redelivering them.

within 48 hours of delivery. Without any additional notification either by phone or in writing, the Goods are deemed to have been accepted after
this time period.

must be reported within 48 hours of receipt and confirmed in writing within 5 working days . Urban Front will not be liable for any damage or
missing goods reported after this period or after installation.


5. TITLE AND RISK
5.1 All risks in the Goods shall pass to the Customer on completion of delivery.
5.2 Title to the Goods shall not pass to the Customer until the Supplier receives payment in full (in cash or cleared funds) for the Goods and any
other goods that the Supplier has supplied to the Customer in respect of which payment has become due, in which case title to the Goods
shall pass at the time of payment of all such sums.
5.3 If full payment is overdue the Supplier can choose, by notice to cancel any delivery and end any right to use the Goods still owned by you, in
which case you must return them or allow us to collect them.

storage space.
