RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS
This warranty applies to all components of the SCBA products (the Equipment) including all accessories and optional equipment purchased and supplied at the time of original sale of the SCBA products, EXCEPT as limited herein.
Subject to Parts Availability Buyer understands that Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. does not manufacture parts for the Equipment, and this warranty is conditioned on Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc.’s ability to obtain the required parts from the original manufacturer of the Equipment.
No Consequential Damages Consequential damages, lost productive hours, inconvenience and contingent liabilities are not covered under this warranty. Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc.’s sole liability under this warranty shall be to replace or repair defects in materials and workmanship.
No Outside Repairs or Alterations THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY TO DEFECTS OR DAMAGE CAUSED BY ANY REPAIRS OF OR ALTERATIONS TO THE SCBA PRODUCTS MADE BY OWNER OR ANY THIRD PARTY. Only persons specifically authorized by Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. shall perform warranty work on the Equipment. Any work performed by unauthorized persons shall void this warranty.
No Misuse or Lack of Maintenance or Normal Wear Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. does not warrant failure of parts or components resulting from misuse, improper adjustment, lack of proper maintenance or from general wear. During normal usage, the materials on the interior of some cylinders may develop minor pits which are acceptable under the DOT regulations covering hydrostat testing at the time of original delivery of cylinder to customer. Customer acknowledges that some pitting is acceptable and not a warrantable item. Level 2 or level 3 damage to a cylinder is considered abuse and voids all warranty.
SCBAs Require Visual Inspection and Functional Test Every 24 Months SCBAs require visual inspections and functional tests to be performed by Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. within 24 months after the original date of purchase by Buyer and every 24 months thereafter. Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. will provide the first visual inspection and functional test free of charge (shipping charges will apply), beginning no more than 90 days before such inspection functional test is due to be completed. Buyer’s failure to obtain such an inspection/functional test within the required time voids the SCBA warranty.
SCBA Cylinders Require Visual Inspection and Hydrostat Test Every 60 Months SCBA cylinders require visual inspections and hydrostat tests to be performed by Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. within 60 months after the original date of purchase by Buyer and every 60 months thereafter. Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. will provide the first visual inspection and hydrostat test free of charge (shipping charges will apply), beginning no more than 90 days before such inspection/hydrostat test is due to be completed. Buyer’s failure to obtain such an inspection/hydrostat test within the required time voids the SCBA cylinder warranty.
LEx Cylinders Require MAE Every 5 Years LEx cylinders require MAE recertification at Hexagon Digital Wave, LLC within five (5) years of the original LEx certification date and every five (5) years thereafter. Buyer’s failure to obtain an MAE recertification test within the required time, or Hexagon Digital Wave, LLC’s inability to recertify the cylinder, voids the LEx cylinder warranty.
LEx Cylinders Noncompliance with Requirements LEx cylinders warranted by Hexagon Digital Wave, LLC may not meet regulations or other requirements for use promulgated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) or by other federal, state, or local agencies or other rule-making bodies. It is Buyer’s responsibility to determine which legal requirements govern Buyer’s use and to comply with such requirements.
No Shipping Damage Damage to the Equipment while being transported by a third party carrier is specifically excluded from this warranty.
No Elastomeric or Rubber Parts or Lenses This limited warranty does not extend to expendable parts such as, but not limited to, any elastomeric (rubber) components, face piece lenses, gauge lenses and other plastic or elastomeric (rubber) parts since they can be affected adversely by excess exposure to heat, sun water or to other corrosive chemicals.
No Wires, Cables, Connectors or Electronics Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. limits warranty of cables, wires, connectors and other electronic components to 90 days as these as these can normally corrode, degrade, fray and lose connectivity during the extreme usage in firefighting situations.
No Scott NXG2 SCBA’s or Scott X3 SCBA’s Dalmatian Fire Equipment, Inc. unconditionally limits warranty of Scott NXG2 SCBA and Scott X3 SCBA to end 90 days from date of purchase.
