DISPLAY

  1. Where skins are available for sale as stand-alone items, Amrod is able to refit skins onto Amrod-purchased hardware from our Johannesburg Head Office. Should a client request that Amrod refit skins, the return of hardware to Amrod Johannesburg Head Office will be for the client’s account. Once complete, Amrod will send the items to an Amrod branch, within South Africa, of the client’s choice. Alternatively, the items can remain at Amrod Johannesburg for client collection.
  2. Refitting of skins by Amrod is subject to inspection of the relevant hardware. If the existing hardware is faulty or damaged, Amrod will not be able to refit skins.
  3. If the client is re-skinning hardware themselves it is the client’s responsibility to ensure that the hardware is not faulty or damaged. Amrod cannot be held liable for skins purchased that cannot be fitted properly due to faulty or damaged hardware.
  4. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure they order the correct skin for the correct display unit.
  5. Reskinning is specifically tailored to fit to Amrod display hardware. Amrod cannot be held responsible for any skins purchased to fit third-party hardware.
  6. All artwork must be created in CMYK and all pantone colours must be included as a pantone solid coated spot within the print file supplied. Please note failing this will result in no colour matching taking place. Please also note due to the limited colour range of various digital CMYK Print methods, not all pantone colours can be achieved. We endeavour to match as closely as possible, but, colour variation will take place on different materials like PVC versus Fabric.
  7. Fluorescent and metallic pantones cannot be matched. Only a tonal representation thereof can be achieved.
  8. Overexposure to sunlight will reduce the longevity of the print.
  9. We encourage you to take care of the display fabric and remove it from direct sunlight at all opportunities.
  10. Display fabrics purchased from Amrod come with a 3-month limited print fade warranty.

DISPLAY REPAIR POLICY

  1. Display hardware purchased from Amrod comes with a 3-year limited mechanical repair warranty.

  1. Manufacture of workwear products will only commence when the order is received and, for COD clients, full payment is received. Once a sales order is generated your order may not be cancelled or changed.
  2. Conti suit sets are sold according to industry-standard which directs that the pants in the set are 2 sizes smaller than the jacket. Conti suit sets will therefore be sold based on the jacket size, for example, if you place an order for a size 34, the jacket will be a size 34 and the pants size will be a size 30.
  3. Kindly ensure that sizing has been established correctly before placing an order with us as sets will always be sold as per the above.
