5 Years' Hand Unit Warranty: FAQs

We are proud of the quality of the products we design and build at our UK based facility. Our RNIB endorsed range of splash-proof patient hand units is no exception and is covered by a 5 years’ ‘return-to-base’ extended warranty.

Q1. Which hand units are covered by the 5 years’ warranty?

All MK6 hand units manufactured since 1st January 2012 are covered by the warranty. MK6 hand units have a distinctive appearance similar to those shown here.

Q2. How do I identify the date of manufacture?

The date of manufacture - together with the part number, is clearly marked on the back of each hand unit (dd/yy). The 5 years’ warranty applies from this date; commencing on the last day of the month shown.

Q3. What if my hand unit does not have a date on it?

Hand units manufactured before 1st January 2012 will not have a date marked on the back, and are out of warranty.

Q4. What is covered?

The ‘return-to-base’ warranty covers damage due to faulty components that have failed in normal usage.

Q5. What is not covered?

The warranty does not cover fair wear and tear, willful or accidental damage. Damage to cables is not covered.

Q6. What happens if I return a hand unit that is not covered?

We will inspect the hand unit and if it is considered to be outside of warranty we will advise you and agree a course of action.

Q7. How long before my replacement hand unit is despatched?

We aim to despatch ’standard’ replacement items within 2 working days of receipt, and to despatch repaired items within 5 working days.

Q8. My hand unit is still in warranty but has been damaged. What do I do?

Return damaged hand units to our Spares & Repairs Department for customer exchange at preferential pricing. For pricing details please telephone: 01902 891 633 (normal office hours).

Hand Unit cables and mounting brackets for MK6 units, and other component parts for older units can also be purchased through our Spares & Repairs Department.
