Liability

 Liability exclusions

Due to a wide range of sailcloths and boat cover textiles, often by lack of knowledge about their construction and specifications, aswell as their actual technical and maintenance conditions, we have to formulate reliability exclusions. Even though the formulated exclusions seldom come to use, such cases may become reality.

In spite of strenuous effort and highest prudence at the treatment of sails and boat covers, it cannot be guaranteed from RED GULL OY side, that with/at

Dacron sails

  • glued sail numbers and logos do not go loose

  • Imprints do not fade or disappear

  • mildew/molds are fully removed and do not come back

  • stressed, damaged and aged stitchings do not go loose after treatment

  • in multiple layer areas, inner polutions can be removed

  • in multiple layer areas, inner polutions will emerge after treatment

  • evt. installed windows go dull or get itches

  • dyed or painted UV protections discolour or loose colour

  • all pollutions are removable

Laminate- & Mebrane sails

  • glued sail numbers and logos do not go loose

  • Imprints do not fade or disappear

  • mildew/molds are fully removed and do not come back

  • stressed, damaged and aged stitching do not go loose after treatment

  • in multiple layer areas, inner polutions can be removed

  • in multiple layer areas, inner polutions will emerge after treatment

  • mildew/mold in the inner of the laminate/membrane construction will be activated, spread out or appears afterwards during transports or during the treatment as at any later moment

  • laminate/membrane glues change colour, due to mildew/mold removal, mildew infection, mildew treatment during cleaning or coating processes

  • with removal of heavier mildew/mould conterminations, delaminations appear

  • delaminations appear on laminates, age not relevant

  • that the bonding strength of laminates/membranes is strong enough not to delaminate during or after treatment at any moment

  • dyed or painted UV protections discolour or even loose colour

  • evt. Installed windows go dull or get itches

  • all pollutions are removable

(General info: The RED GULL cleaning process does not allow to penetrate polutions in between layers of sailcloth or inside a laminate/membrane construction)

Sails that go through the Sail Regeneration treatment

  • to what exact extent a profile regenerates

  • how long the treatment will last (this relates and depends primarily to the later use of the sail, the treatment, maintenance and application of the sail)

  • to what degree the sails haptics developp in the treatment

  • some sails will not adapt the treatment due to former production treatments or later treatments like siliconisations or other coatings or treatments)

(Please note: : Such sailcloth properties or siliconisations, that lead to non adaption of our treatments cannot be determined within our technical possibilities, prior to the treatment)

Boat covers

  • mildew will be removed fully and will not come back

  • no discolourations will take place

  • covers will „blead out“ – parts of the colour pigmentation comes loose and causes discolourations on the inside (due to technical properties of boat cover acrylics and other materials which are not within our influence) These inner discolourations often dissapear again, when the cover is taken in use!

  • discolourations due to not colour-fast, dyed or afterwards coloured boat covers, appear

  • colours will look again for 100 % as new

  • discolourations due to bird and sea gull dropping will revitalize

  • stitchings loose their breaking strength (stiching yarn contains often 50 % cotton, this is not resistant to our treatments and may loose strength)

  • windows go dull or get itches (e.g. due to UV damages)

  • evt. leather or leather immitation applications loose colour, bleading into surrounding textile

  • aged and/or damaged boat covers can still be proofed

  • all pollutions are removable

We take no responsibility for damages caused by the applyed treatments on covers or cover clothes, their stitchings, windows and other construction parts, when these are older than 2 years.

Explanation: Most cloths, zips and other boat cover construction parts, show regularly after only 2 years of use, significant infirmity due to impacts from weather, UV, humidity and dirt. Therefore we cannot guarantee that the required cleaning chemicals and rinsings will not harm these even further, so that existing damages may become apparent or new damages appear.

Tipp: Let your cover be controlled regularly by a qualified cover builder, latest after the 2nd year in use!

Leather or leather applications on sails and boat covers (incl. leather substitute materials)

  • will go clean

  • will not discolour or loose their colour

  • do not embriddle

  • do not „blead out“ or colour permanently surrounding or attached textiles (in particular moose leather applications tend to bleed strongly!)

RED GULL rejects and refuses to take any responsibility on

  • existing damages on supplied sails or covers or other goods

  • hidden deficits on supplied sails or covers or other goods

  • not noticeable or hidden deficits on supplied sails or covers or other goods

  • not noticeable or material weaknesses on supplied sails or covers or other goods

  • shrinking behaviour of goods, explanation by wikipedia: click to read
  • damages through/by previous treatments or in consequnce of previous treatments

  • customer complaints or claims on goods that are taken into use

  • customer complaints or claims that are not submitted in writing immediately or latest after receipt of the treated goods

  • customer complaints or claims at not fullfilled customer duties like open or unpaied invoices

The maximum refunding value for damages, caused without any doubt by RED GULL Oy treatment and as such accepted by RED GULL Oy, is the value of the treatment.

We only take orders in respect and acceptance of our conditions and reliability exclusions.

Anybody, any person or company, giving sails, covers or other goods for treatment to RED GULL OY, directly or through our partners, accepts thereby to have taken notice, have read, have understood and accepts these conditions with and at the placement of his/her order.
