Making A Purchase

We accept all major credit and debit cards. You may send your credit card information via phone, fax, snail mail or over the Internet if you prefer.

We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. For web orders we will confirm that your order has been accepted by sending an email to you at the email address you provide in your order form. If your order is made using the telephone then we will confirm acceptance of the order during that call and these terms and conditions apply to such an order. Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us. For telephone orders acceptance of delivery of the goods shall be deemed conclusive evidence of your acceptance of these terms and conditions.

The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out in our website or as quoted by our customer services representative on the telephone.

Guarantee

All of our products carry a 12 month warranty against cracking, discolouration and delaminating. Please note that the vast majority of problems found with Window Films are due to installation error and not product failure. We recommend that customers follow our installation instructions accurately to promote a trouble free product life. This does not affect your statutory rights.

You agree that it is your responsibility to determine if your glass is suitable to have window film fitted to it and that you have read the guide ‘film to glass compatibility’ chart and the information on page 2 & 3 about thermal stress, and that Abode Window Films cannot be held responsible for any glass breakage or cracking that may result in the fitting of window films to your glass.

We reserve the right to inspect claims under the above warranty prior to any settlement being authorised.

When purchasing an Abode Window Film product the buyer agrees that the product installation quality is determined by their own, or their appointed installer’s ability and Abode Window Films cannot be held responsible for defects or breakages resulting from poor installation. These include, but are not limited to, bubbling, visual impairment, scratches, glass breakage or cracking, damage to surrounding fixtures and fittings, paintwork, personal injury and financial loss.

Visual Signs & Graphics ltd, trading as Abode Window Films will not be held responsible for any glass cracking or seal failure that may occur after the installation of window film. This can very occasionally happen if you have chosen the incorrect film for your type of glass or the glass was damaged prior to installing the film. It is the buyer’s responsibility to determine that the film they have chosen in the correct type for their glazing. Please phone 0116 2784844 for any further information on film compatibility.

Abode Window Films does not guarantee that the use of safety/security products will prevent injury or criminal access. The films when applied professionally do comply with the Health & Safety Regulation 14 and Building Regulations Document N however self-application does not qualify the glass to these regulations. The film is tested to BS6206/EN12600 which categorises the performance of the film and from these tests it can be concluded that safety /security film does increase protection against injury but does not necessarily eliminate injury. Similarly the performance of safety/security films can increase the time and effort required to break through glass but does not prevent access by determined attackers.

Returns Policy

If your order is damaged in anyway once you receive it, please email or phone us straight away and DO NOT attempt to fit the film.  We will replace the damaged goods if on receipt of their return it appears that the goods are defective (We are unable to replace damaged goods if you have tried to fit them).  We will promptly arrange to deliver replacement goods free of charge or, if you request, a full refund of the price of the defective goods.  We are unable to refund or replace goods if the item is not returned to us.

You are entitled to cancel your order and return the goods within 7 working days for a full refund, including the cost of delivery. Do this by contacting us by email or telephone and quoting the order number supplied to you. Your refund will be paid within 30 days. You are responsible for the cost and risk of loss or damage when returning the goods, so you should take out enough postal insurance to cover their value.
