Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

In a nutshell, Darby makes no warranties of any kind, expressed or implied, in respect to the goods delivered and makes no warranties of fitness for any particular purpose of the goods.  We also state any rejections or shortages must be reported within 10 days. We also limit our liability for any loss or damage of any nature, including, without limitation, direct, indirect, and consequential damages, to $100.  Also important to note is that material is sold subject to manufacturing and material content only. It cannot be rejected due to performance or appearance requirements not specified in the quote or written order, or for expectations beyond industrial wire mesh standards.
Woven wire mesh is fabricated to the ASTM E2016 -15 specification, which basically spells out acceptable industrial tolerances including a permissible number of blemishes. 
In practice, if what we sell is found to be out of spec, we will refund or replace at our discretion if brought to our attention within 10 days. Color or appearance is not covered under the spec, and cannot be grounds for rejection.
