The guarantee only applies to products delivered to the first end-user (see point 2 below) after 1st November 2001.


II. Start of the guarantee period

The guarantee period starts when the newly-made product is delivered to the first end-user.


III. Extent of the guarantee

In order to take advantage of our guarantee, you, the end-user must send us (details here) a written complaint within the guarantee period and within one month of discovering (or when you ought to have discovered) the defect, along with the receipt and a photo.


V. Reimbursement of the purchase price

If in accordance with the terms and conditions of the guarantee, you, the end-user returns the product, and Solstro accepts the complaint, Solstro will pay the list price valid at the time of the complaint. If the product is not marketed any more at the time of the complaint, Solstro will pay the list price for a similar product.

This guarantee does not cover:

  • Any delivery delays or non-product-related issues
  • Any discolouration of non-visible parts, change of colour and fading caused by the sun / condensation / acid rain / salty splashes or any other conditions with corroding or material changing effect,

  • Natural variations in the colour of the wood 
  • Slight imperfections or natural variations in the aluminium, steel and glass, including colour variations in the pane, that do not materially affect use, 
  • Any other similar conditions, irrespective of whether these may be designated as defects.
