Franklin Corporation Warranty
FRANKLIN CORPORATION LIMITED WARRANTY
The seat foam, reclining mechanism, all other metal parts and the wooden frame parts in this furniture are warranted to be free of defects in workmanship and materials for the lifetime of the mechanism or frame, as the case may be. “Lifetime” means the normal, useful life as determined by the manufacturer.
FIVE YEAR WARRANTY
Sleeper mattresses are warranted to be free of defects in workmanship and materials for a period of five years from the date of sale to the original purchaser.
ONE YEAR WARRANTY
Fabric and leather are warranted to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for one year from the date of sale. This warranty covers seam failure, fabric separation and nap loss. This warranty DOES NOT apply to pilling, fading, shrinking, dyelot variations, tears, scratching, fraying, stretching, wearing or flattening of nap. Chenilles, Velvets and Velvet types have an inherent soft texture and will crush, shade and mark easier than most fabrics and these characteristics are not considered a defect. Also excluded are damages and defects resulting from abuse, neglect, exposure to extreme temperatures or humidity, alterations, burns, cuts, scuffs, watermarks, indentions or pet damage. Natural markings such as scars, brands, grain variations, wrinkles, etc, will be considered normal characteristics and not construed as defects. No two leather hides are ever the same so color variations could occur. Where there is evidence of excessive soiling, improper cleaning, abuse or where the fabric/leather has had some form of chemical applied, the fabric /leather warranty will not apply. Franklin Corporation at its discretion may require proof of damage.
