MSD lanterns are constructed to tried and proven designs using high quality materials and components thus ensuring long life.
The warranty period and terms & conditions are set out below. These only apply to lanterns designed for street and road lighting purposes and not to decorative lanterns. They also apply only if the lantern is not damaged through vandalism or mishandling and is not installed in extreme or unusually harsh conditions.
Any item found to be defective must be returned, for examination, to MDS Lighting who reserve the right to repair or replace any defective items at their own discretion.
MSD Lighting reserve the right to change the warranty period and terms without prior notice.
MSD Lighting warrants that each product will be free from defects in materials and workmanship subject to the conditions as stated hereafter during the stated period of time (hereinafter referred to as: “Warranty Period”) from the date of delivery.
MSD Lighting Warranty flows only to the purchaser.
This Warranty coverage is granted for products switched on/off on a daily basis with an average annual utilisation of 4.000 hours and used in accordance with the technical specifications.
In cases where MSD Lighting determine that a product or component is defective it will endeavour to repair or replace at its discretion. In some cases, however, due to technical progress, components may be discontinued and it may not be possible to repair or replace to the original specification or LED light sources may have light properties deviating from those of the original products. In such circumstances MSD Lighting may also, at its absolute discretion, give a credit for the price paid on a pro-rata diminishing basis corresponding to the remaining duration of the warranty.
