We have made every effort to accurately present our products. However, because what you see on the web site will depend on a number of factors (e.g. your monitor) there may be a slight variation from what you see displayed.

We have tried wherever possible to show measurements in both metric and imperial (and on some occasion these have been rounded up or down for convenience, as such please read all measurements as approximate). Although every effort has been made to ensure that the information on this site is correct we cannot guarantee there are no inaccuracies. We will endeavour to correct anything brought to our attention.

Every effort is made to ensure that the description and prices we advertise are correct. On rare occasions descriptions or advertised prices can be incorrect. This is never intentional. The most common cause of this is a supplier changing their prices or specification and is beyond our control. In these circumstances, we will contact you to make sure it is ok to proceed with the order at the new price.
