Timber and Other Natural Products
Timber is a natural product and prone to changes in appearance, including some movement
and the occurance of small knot holes or splits in extreme temperatures and weather
conditions. Any splits, knots or similar visual imperfections in the timber will
not affect the structural integrity of the product in any way. Whilst every effort
is made to hand pick timber without visible knotholes or splits there may be occasions
where timber is selected in good faith that contains what appears to be a solid
knot. Over the course of time / during movement of the product etc it may occur
that these small knot holes are then dislodged from the timber leaving a small knot
or crack. Unfortunately we cannot be held responsible for this maturing of the product
and can only offer our best advice as how to deal with this situation in the unlikely
event that it should occur. When measuring timber for the purpose of technical information
the absolute external dimensions will be taken from a sample piece of each component
used - it should be noted that due to the complex nature of the product and
machining processes that this figure will give an average measurement that could
be subject to slight variance throughout the rest of the individual boards in the
pack measured. Whilst every effort will be made to select only components which
match the average advertised sizing this is subject to the availability of the timber
that has been machined and cannot be guaranteed. Please note any guarantee offered
does not cover the products against timber splits or warping. These are natural
characteristics of the products and not defects and neither will these circumstances
be accepted as a valid reason for the cancellation of an order, as this can occur
naturally over time.
