|Credit Card Security|
Your online order will be processed by the latest secure server software. This means that all sensitive information such as credit card details sent for authorisation are encrypted so then cannot be read by others. We use the same methods as used by many of the largest e-commerce sites.
We reserve the right to amend prices or specifications and delete items without prior notification and in order to minimise costs, where applicable, moulds are shared with other clients and partially subsidised by BFC LTD on the understanding that BFC LTD retains ownership of the moulds for possible future catalogue inclusion. If exclusive client mould ownership is required for own designs or patterns, please inform us in writing, and moulding costs will be charged for in full.
When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
The castings are direct copies from original fittings. The blemishes and inconsistencies to be found in the cast reproductions form the character and charm of the collection, and have been deliberately reproduced. Please note that some minor variations may also occur from one casting to another due to the handmade process. The collection has been compiled with restorers in mind, and fittings are supplied on the understanding that some modifications may be required by the client for instance threads have been copied from hand cut originals, and where supplied, nuts may be loose fitting due to shrinkage. They can be easily tightened by gently squeezing with a pair of pliers or in a light vice.
Since everybody's requirements are different, products are supplied without screws; escutcheon pins or bolts unless ordered.
The mixture of tin, zinc and copper is made up to a consistency to match the yellow to be found in 18th and 19th century fittings. U.S. law requires us to disclose that the lead content exceeds one half of one billionth of a gram. Typical content is 2 1/2% although 1% is achievable in Brass, and 1/4% in Bronze by special request at additional cost. Each casting is hand polished to a bright finish on highlights, leaving a contrasting matt surface on low relief areas and is supplied without lacquer or wax finishing. The bright finish will naturally tone down to a desirable yellow-gold colour after some months and may indeed have already done so if held in our stock prior to dispatch. Various heat or chemical treatments should be applied to prematurely age the fittings.
