The Australian Bedding Company offers a warranty against faulty workmanship and /or faulty materials commencing on the date the mattress and/or base was originally delivered to, or collected by the purchaser and is valid only to the original purchaser of the product as indicated on the original sales invoice. This warranty does not extend to normal wear and tear, or damage caused by abuse, misuse or negligence. Failure to comply with manufacturer's care and maintenance instructions may void your warranty.
In addition to the other exclusions stated on this page, ABCspecifically excludes from the warranty;
• Small manufacturing irregularities that do not affect the performance of the bed.
• Comfort issues relating to the customers preferences
• Fit of manchester items.
• Handles, as handles are not intended to be used to lift, turn or transport the product.
All mattresses should be rotated on a regular basis. Single sided mattresses need just to be spun around 180 degrees. 2 sided mattresses need to be flipped over and spun around 180 degrees. We recommend that a mattress should be rotated every 2 weeks in the first month after the purchase and then done once a month for the duration of the warranty period. Failure to rotate your mattress will void the warranty.
During the warranty period, if ABC is satisfied that material or workmanship is faulty, it will repair or replace the product at its option. However, the warranty period will not be extended or changed as a result of repair or replacement under the terms of this warranty or otherwise. ABC will cover transport costs arising from repair or replacement under the terms of this Warranty during the first 12 months of the Warranty period. After 12 months transport costs are to be met by the purchaser. The transport cost in this instance is from $40.
ABC reserves the right to substitute material of equal quality on the particular items being repaired or replaced if identical material is not available at the time of repair or replacement.
Body Impressions, (small indentations) are normal on the surface of any new mattress whilst the upholstery filling is levelling to a final position and getting used to your body contours. This does not constitute a manufacturing fault. On a pillowtop mattress, up to 35mm height loss is considered normal. On a non-pillowtop mattress, up to 25mm height loss is considered normal.
Electric blankets are not suitable for mattresses as they deteriorate the foams at a faster rate. The use of an electric blanket on an ABC mattress may void the warranty.
ABC mattresses are suitable for slat bases. There are important tips to know when considering a slat base to compliment your mattress.
Correct mattress support is an important element in providing long life for the mattress. Mattresses always follow the contour of whatever they rest on. If placed on any base that dips down, even under the load of one or two sleepers, the guarantee may be voided. Bases dipping or sagging allow the mattress to sag, causing the top cover to wrinkle. This includes but is not limited to “posture slat” bases. Sleepers may experience roll together through inadequate support. Some slat/mesh type bases may require a center rail and a leg to the floor to prevent dipping or sagging, particularly in Double, Queen and King sizes. Timber slats must be a smooth finish to prevent splinter and scuffing damage and be securely fastened to the frame at each end. A breathable insulating pad or blanket over the slats is advisable. Slats over 14cm wide may cause mildew by not allowing moisture to evaporate sufficiently. Solid panel timber bases must have sufficient air holes drilled to permit dispersal of moisture and prevent mildew. Bases must always be firm, even and supportive. Gaps between uncovered slats must not exceed 10cm, anything exceeding this does not ably support the spring system and can void the warranty.
A base that is too hard, too soft, not supportive, or restricts air circulation may damage your mattress and void this guarantee.
The company reserves the right not to handle items for repair if, in its opinion, they have been tampered with or misused by the purchaser beyond reasonable wear or if the product has been physically damaged intentionally or due to accident and/or neglect: including burns, cuts, water damage, mold, stains, soiled by blood or urine and if it is unsanitary. Use of a mattress protector is advisable at all times. Mattress and base specifications, including appearance, may change without notice. This warranty is in addition to, and not in substitution for, the right of the purchaser conferred by the trade practices act and/or the legislation of any State or Territory.
