Quotation and the date of Supply ("Total Price").
3.2 Unless the Seller has already measured the structure, the measurements in the Quotation are based on specifications supplied by the Buyer and if the Seller finds any inaccuracy in those
specifications, the Seller may recalculate the Net Quotation and the Total Price on the same basis as used with the specifications.
3.3 Before manufacture of the Goods begins, the Buyer may request an alteration to the specifications provided that the alteration will not (in the Seller's sole opinion) unreasonably interfere with
the Seller's manufacturing programme and the Seller may recalculate the Net Quotation and the Total Price on the same basis as used with the original specifications.
3.4 In the event of any disagreement regarding any recalculation of the Net Quotation or the Total Price, a certificate given by the general manager of the Seller shall, in any proceedings,
arbitration, mediation or discussion, be conclusive evidence of the Total Price to be paid by the Buyer.

7.1 Standard Powdercoat colours are made up of powders which have a 10 year warranty for fading and chalking. Higher performance powders are available in request on a made to order basis.

bright reds, yellows, oranges and pinks. A full listing of these bright colours is available from the Seller).
7.3 The durability and colour retentive qualities of the powdercoat surface are improved by adherence to a maintenance programme of cleaning recommended by the Seller. In this regard,
aluminium joinery should be cleaned every 3 to 6 months depending on the environment (i.e. 3 months in coastal, geothermal or industrial environments and 6 months in other cases. Cleaning
should be undertaken with a mild neutral detergent and rinsed with clean water and dried immediately afterwards with a clean cloth.) Adherence to such cleaning programmes is a condition of
all powdercoat guarantees.

7.5 It is the Buyer's responsibility to obtain from the Seller all relevant information on the varying grades and qualities of powdercoat available and to specify to the Seller in writing the grade and
quality of powdercoat the Buyer requires. If the Buyer does not specify the grade and quality of powdercoat required the Buyer shall be deemed to have specified 'Polyester Powdercoat' rather
than 'High Performance Polyester Powdercoat'.
