Product Specification

PRODUCT, SPECIFICATIONS, VARIATIONS, ERRORS

In the event of a conflict between a customer’s written order and Coronet’s drawing or specification sheet marked “approved,” the Coronet drawing or specification sheet shall prevail. Should customer fail to provide detailed specifications, then Coronet’s interpretation of non-specified characteristics shall prevail. Every effort is made to avoid errors in catalogs, specification sheets and data references. Coronet will not accept responsibility for labor charge-backs in connection with errors in typography, measurements and dimensioning, descriptions, omissions, etc. Orders containing such phrases as “all materials to be supplied as per project plans and specifications,” etc., are subject to separate written acceptance by Coronet.

Coronet reserves the right to discontinue items, modify designs, and change specifications or prices without incurring any liability. Discontinued fixtures if ordered may not be returned for credit.

INVOICING

All invoices are due and payable per the standard terms stated herein. Buyer shall be liable for legal fees incurred by Coronet to collect past due amounts. In the case of an apparent discrepancy in a line item charge, the Buyer is obligated to advise Coronet Lighting Customer Service in writing of the nature of the claimed discrepancy within five (5) days of receipt of the invoice. This includes all requests for proof of delivery. A claim of discrepancy does not relieve Buyer of the absolute obligation to pay the remaining balance of the invoice in accordance with the standard terms of payment. Coronet, after review, will have sole discretion to resolve the discrepancy; and the Buyer expressly agrees to abide by Coronet’s decision. Coronet will promptly advise Buyer of its decision regarding any disputed items or charges.

CONFIDENTIALITY

Buyer agrees that all information furnished by Coronet in connection with the sale of items will be confidential. The Buyer agrees not to disclose any such information to any other person, or use such information for any purposes other than performance hereunder.

GENERAL

Any assignment of rights hereunder by Buyer without the prior written consent of Coronet shall be void. No waiver by Coronet or any default shall operate as a waiver of any other default or of the same default on a future occasion. Coronet shall have the right to credit toward the payment of any monies that may become due from Buyer, any amounts that may now or hereafter be owed by Buyer under this or any other agreement or transaction between Coronet and Buyer. If any provision of this agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable in any respect, the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. All clerical errors are subject to correction. The construction, interpretation and performance of Coronet and Buyer hereunder and all transactions hereunder shall be governed in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey. Venue for any litigation arising hereunder shall lie exclusively in the State and Federal Courts of New Jersey.

FORCE MAJEURE

Under no circumstances shall Coronet be liable for any delay or failure to perform hereunder when such failure or delay is, directly or indirectly, caused by, or in any manner arises from fire, floods, accidents, civil unrest, acts of God, war, governmental interference or embargoes, strikes, labor difficulties, shortage of labor, fuel, power, materials, or supplies, breakage of machinery or apparatus, transportation delays, or any other cause or causes (whether or not similar in nature to any of those hereinbefore specified) beyond its sole and reasonable control.

Additional information concerning LED products: LED products, by their nature, are very sensitive to heat, installation and operation must be within the product guidelines and, if no installation instructions are provided, in a good and workmanlike manner by competent installers. LED products must be installed in applications where ambient temperatures are within the range of specified operating temperatures and are operated within the electrical values shown on the LED driver. Any questions about installation should be directed to Coronet prior to any installation. Unauthorized removal of LED modules will void the warranty. A reduction in luminous flux is normal as long as the relevant value does not fall below 0.6%/1000h burning hours. A luminous flux within that range is considered normal and not a defect. Due to technical progress and changes in the luminous flux of products that is caused by their use, subsequent deliveries of LED light sources may have light properties deviating from those of the original products Coronet warrants that the initial LED Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) at the time of shipment will be within described parameters as stated in the Coronet product specification sheet. If the product specification sheet specifies a certain Correlated Color Temperature only and not parameters, Coronet warrants that the CCT will be within 10% of that CCT, or within the range specified on the specification sheet at the time of shipment. Coronet further warrants that the initial luminous flux will be within 10% of the range specified in the specification sheet at the time of shipping. Coronet will not be responsible for any color shift in LED modules installed in Coronet fixtures. Color changes or shifts in LED lighting are a natural consequence of LED lighting and shall not be considered a defect covered by this limited warranty.
