In this Agreement the following definitions shall apply.
“Agreement” means this Agreement (including any Schedules) and any amendments to it, as agreed, from time to time.

3.1 Uniplay supplies and installs pre-formed thermoplastic playground markings, sports coatings and other playground marking paints. It will make sure all products are installed with care and to the manufacturers specification.
Preformed Thermoplastic and MMA (Methacrylate) Markings – Up to 4 Years
Sports coatings – Due to the varying surface quality and condition no warranty is provided.
Anti-Slip playground paint – 1 year warranty is provided.
The warranty is effective from the date the markings are installed and is subject to us installing on a clean macadam surface which must be at least 4 weeks old. Specialist surfaces such as porous asphalt, resin bound stone, paving slabs etc are not covered under this warranty.
3.3 Where possible Uniplay will carry out checks and ensure that the Clients site is suitable and safe prior to the installation. On some surfaces this may mean a heat test needs to be carried out. On both heat tests and installation of the markings occasionally some discolouration of the surface surrounding the markings may occur. This is perfectly normal and does vary from surface to surface. Uniplay are not responsible for any discolouration to the surface.
3.4 The warranty covers markings installed on sound, clean substrates only. If there are any apparent issues at the outset we will discuss this with you prior to installing. Some issues i.e. drainage problems may not be apparent initially so in the unlikely event there was a warranty claim we would initially make a visit to try and assess the cause of any problem.
3.5 The maximum liability of Uniplay is the cost paid for the marking in question. Uniplay are not responsible for the removal of any damaged markings or putting the area back to its original condition.
3.6 If Uniplay is instructed to carry out removals then on occasion this may leave some scarring to the surface for which Uniplay are not liable. The level of scarring is dependent on the surface condition.
3.6.1 UHP Water is the recommended removals method.
3.7 Uniplay will make sure it has carried out a standard DBS check for each of its employees. The reference numbers for these are available on request.
3.8 Where requested Uniplay will provide a proposed layout plan prior to carrying out the installation. This is scaled so will provide an approximate visual of how the finished playground will look. Colours of the games may vary so if you have any preference or want them exactly as illustrated please ask. Our markings come in 18 standard colours. Bespoke RAL colours are available on request. For bespoke designs unless a specific RAL colour is stated on your quotation we will use the closest standard colour available. Due to drains or unforeseen obstacles games may need to be moved slightly to fit the area.

If you are unsure if the condition of your tarmac is suitable please send some photos over to your playground designer prior to the installation so we can advise accordingly.
4.7 The client is advised not to grit or salt the playground for at least 48 hours prior to the install taking place. This will void the warranty of the markings.
