The warranty period commences from the date that goods are received for a period of 12 months.
Subject to "Your Consumer Rights", but otherwise to the maximum extent permitted by law, this warranty will not cover the following:

Signals sent through the power grid by the electricity provider for the control of off peak hot water, street lights and other devices may cause an intermittent humming noise in your product. Filters for blocking/reducing such signals are available in Australia at the customer's expense. These noises do not indicate the product is faulty.

Furniture Warranty
Fat Shack Vintage (“FSV”) provides a 12 month, non-transferable structural manufacturing warranty for furniture products that have been purchased in Australia. This warranty is subject to the Australian Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Australian Consumer Law). The benefits provided in this warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies of a consumer under the Australian Consumer Law, and any other laws in relation to the products to which this warranty relates. The warranty period commences from the date that goods are received for a period of 12 months.
This warranty covers the replacement or repair of any product that has a structural manufacturing defect that is not the result of normal wear and tear, or a natural characteristic of the material used. This warranty applies to a failure of the structure of the item. This includes the frame of a furniture item. A failure of the structure of the item will arise if the good cannot be used for its fundamental purpose.

Subject to "Your Consumer Rights", but otherwise to the maximum extent permitted by law, this warranty will not cover the following:

  • Products or components that become defective as a consequence of misuse, lack of proper care and maintenance or handling in transit.
  • Where the good has been used in an abnormal manner including where the good is abused, misused, dropped, crushed, impacted with any hard surface, exposed to extreme heat or cold, or used after partial failure.
  • Where the good has been tampered with in any way, modified, incorrectly adjusted or operated.
  • Any breakage caused by negligent and/or improper use of the goods.
  • Fabric/leather coverings.
  • Surface marks, cracks in timber, fabric wear and the tarnishing of metals.
  • Degradation of finish caused by environmental factors.
  • Normal wear and tear associated with the products and components. Fabrics, leathers, suspension components, cushioning and fillings will show signs of wear and tear with use. Fabrics and leathers will fade and crease. Foam and fillings will soften and form to the shape of the user over time. Depending on the covering and the degree of use, the covering materials, cushion fillings and suspension may need to be replaced periodically at the purchaser’s expense. Scars, marks and differing pore density and colour are natural characteristics of leather and are not to be considered defects.
  • Routine wear items such as feet/glides, wheels, stoppers, grommets and any other wearing parts.
  • Natural movement of timber products or other effects beyond our control
  • Any damage caused by placing furniture outdoors or in direct sunlight if not intended for that usage.
