Returns Policy
Your rights to return goods may be protected under UK consumer laws pertaining to distance selling. Section 2 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 lays out the key definitions pertinent to the Act:

A 'consumer' is "an individual acting for purposes that are wholly or mainly outside that individual's trade, business, craft or profession." This extends beyond any previous definition in UK or EU law as it includes contracts that are entered into for a combination of personal and business reasons.
A 'trader' is defined as "a person acting for purposes relating to that person's trade, business, craft or profession, whether acting personally or through another person acting in the trader's name or on the trader's behalf."

Consumers: 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. Returns will not be possible for special orders, specially cut lengths, made up cloths or lifting equipment. 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. This cancellation policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault - for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.

Traders: Other than goods which reach the customer in an unusable condition, the company will only accept returns subject to a 20% handling charge unless by prior arrangement. The goods must be returned from the customer in good condition. Returns will not be possible for special orders, specially cut lengths, made up cloths or lifting equipment. Any goods returned should be in saleable condition.

The specification and description of goods in our catalogue were correct to the best of our knowledge at time of going to press. However we reserve the right to change specifications without notice.
The customer shall be wholly responsible for ensuring that all products are entirely appropriate for the use and application intended.

All sales are subject to our full terms and conditions which are available on request
