Lifetime of Product WarrantyLifetime of Product Warranty means that System Control Engineering will repair or replace the product during its marketed lifetime if used as specified by the manufacturer. The warranty does not cover misuse, neglect, repaired products or incorrect installation nor does it cover accessories and batteries. Indeed, because of the natural deterioration of all surge protection products, System Control Engineering recommends that you regularly replace surge protectors and power boards at least every 2 to 3 years, which is endorsed by regulators in Australia. All requests for repair and credit are to be made via the Company's website. Please refer to the contacts tab on the website.

You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonable foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.
1.2 System Control Engineering does not exclude or limit the application of any provision of any statute (including the Trade Practices Act) where to do so would;

1.4 If any of the Goods are supplied to the Customer as a consumer of Goods and Services within the meaning of that term in the Trade Practices Act 1974 as amended or similar State legislation, the Customer will have the benefit of certain non-excludable rights and remedies in respect of the Goods or Services and nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes or restricts or modifies any condition, warranty, right or remedy which, pursuant to the Trade Practices Act or similar legislation is so conferred. However, if the product is not a product ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption pursuant to section 68A of the Trade Practices Act and similar provisions of State legislation, System Control Engineering limits its liability to payment of an amount equal to the lowest of:-
1.4.a The cost of replacing the Goods;
1.4.b The cost of repair of the Goods;
1.4.c The cost of having the Goods repaired or replaced.
1.5 Where Goods are subject to a warranty supplied by a manufacturer or supplier other than System Control Engineering, the obligation of System Control Engineering under this agreement to repair or replace the Goods shall, notwithstanding the provisions of clause 1.3, be limited to the terms of the applicable manufacturer's warranty subject to clause 1.4 which preserves certain non-excludable rights and remedies under the Trade Practices Act 1974 in the appropriate circumstances.
