To make a warranty claim, the customer must provide:

  • Purchase invoice
  • Photo documentation
  • Documentation of inspection and maintenance as per NORNA PLAYGROUNDS’ guidelines

For justified complaints where the customer wishes to address the issue independently, the price and remedy method must be agreed upon with NORNA PLAYGROUNDS beforehand. Failure to observe this NORNA PLAYGROUNDS will not cover the expense and the warranty is void.

In case of a dispute, it must be settled by arbitration in Denmark at a location determined by NORNA PLAYGROUNDS.
