Conditions of Warranty
Hercules™ Instant Shelter provides a limited manufacturing warranty on all products from the date of original purchase that the product will be free from defects in material and workmanship. The length of the limited warranty may vary by product. This warranty is valid for the original purchaser from the date of initial purchase and is not transferable.
This warranty assumes normal and reasonable event use combined with expected good maintenance for all Hercules Instant Shelter’s products. This warranty is valid only if the product is installed and operated as per the instructions in the user manual.
Hercules Instant Shelter reserves the right to determine whether or not fault is caused by faulty workmanship, faulty materials or that any part is defective. Where fault is determined, we reserve the right to repair or replace products at our discretion.
This warranty does not apply to damage caused by wind or adverse weather conditions, damage caused by unauthorized attachments or modification, damage caused by improper storage, accidents or misuse. This warranty does not cover damage from fair wear and tear from the use of the product (for example, scratches, dents, dings and chipping) or changes in the appearance of the product do not affect its performance.
STOP USING OVERNIGHT: We do not recommend that your gazebo is to be left assembled overnight. Pop up gazebo is considered a temporary structure. Unexpected rain or changes in temperature may cause condensation on the gazebo when it is left up for a long period of time at night. This can cause your gazebo serious damage.
PURCHASE PROTECTION INSURANCE: We advise you to seek private insurance to protect yourself and your personal property against the risk of loss or damage.
This warranty applies to the product that is purchased from Hercules Instant Shelter and its authorised agent only.

Limited Acrylic Fabric Warranty
This fabric warranty protects against the acrylic fabric becoming unserviceable due to significant loss of strength or colour from normal usage and exposure conditions.
Our Acrylic umbrella fabric is warrantied to remain a light-fastness rating of 7-8 on a 1-8 scale (ie. no significant fading) for the duration of the warranty period. Colours utilising Red and Yellow pigment (eg. Red, Yellow, Orange, Pink, etc.) will retain a lower colour fastness rating, which means they will show signs of fading earlier.
This warranty does not apply against any deterioration of any kind due to wind or weather-related damage, misuse, burns, negligence, vandalism, perforations or stains due to environmental pollution, and fair wear and tear.
