Fasonado Visia products are resistant to frost but are not resistant to de-icing agents; when de-icing agents are used, the surface can be affected.

Although Fasonado slabs have an increased resistance to this, they are not entirely free from deterioration.

The use of natural raw materials can lead to a lively nuance of the elements. For an optimal color image, mix the slabs well during installation.

By using, the Fasonado elements will get scratches and streaks.

This is specific to the product as is the case for natural stone products and polished concrete. Color differences, small cracks, and air bubbles are part of the concrete character and do not give cause for complaint.

STANDARD STREET FURNITURE, ARCHITECTURAL CONCRETE IN ACCORDANCE WITH :

NBN EN 13198 Precast concrete products – street furniture and garden products
NBN EN 13369: 2013 Common rules for precast concrete products

Compressive strength

C 35/45
Exposure class XF1
  Max Cl- = CL0,40

 

SAMPLES :

Any sample submitted for approval and subsequently approved forms only a basis for the agreement.

In each element, there may always be a slight deviation from the approved sample as a sample has been produced on a rather limited surface, with a small volume of concrete and not in the same conditions or with the same production methods.

 

FINISHES :

Fair faced concrete (Visia) reflects the naked character of the concrete, this means that a number of aesthetic disadvantages may also appear such as small cracks, color nuances,  air bubbles. To reduce these disadvantages, you can choose from the offered finishes with post-treatment.

 

EFFLORESCENCE :

Despite all the precautions taken to prevent efflorescence, we cannot guarantee that this will not happen at all. The phenomenon is specific to the main component of the concrete: cement.

 

PROTECTION :

Precautions must be taken in case of starter reinforcement to avoid rust stains.

 

SMALL RUST STAINS:

Small rust spots are caused by the natural raw materials used in the products. This is not a reason for a product complaint.

 

PRODUCTION CONDITIONS :

We have based our estimate on the plans, dimensions, and specifications communicated by the customer by email; afterward, any change with regard to dimensions, finishing, color, structure, concrete composition, the number of elements to be prefabricated "this enumeration is not restrictive" has the consequence that the prices are revised in more.

 

Planning and delivery according to a common agreement and in proportion to current production capacity and occupancy rate, linked to the date of contract signature and approval of final working drawings. Temporary suspension in the event of force majeure will automatically and without compensation result in an extension of the planned delivery period. In principle, the first working drawings are sent for approval approximately 15 working days after signing the contract.

Production starts at the earliest 8 working weeks after the final approval of working drawings. The first delivery at the earliest 2 to 3 weeks after the first deposit. Call off: 10 working days.

The steel reinforcement of the elements was estimated in the offer of Urbastyle via a standard quantity per m3 of concrete. The quantity of reinforcement invoiced is the total quantity actually carried out according to the requirements of the responsible engineer of the project (subject to structural design by others) plus the quantity of reinforcement needed for the internal manipulation, lifting systems or phasing of the production of the elements (overlap included). The quantity charged can therefore sometimes exceptionally deviate from the standard quantity, depending on whether the engineering requirements are heavy and/or the number of phases or overlaps is high. Only the working drawings approved in writing by the buyer can be used as a basis for determining these performed reinforcement quantities.

Urbastyle has not allowed for any design responsibility.

ARE INCLUDED IN THE OFFER :

Lifting sockets and hooks required for manipulation (according to the approved working drawings).
Working drawings. The working drawings form the basis of the agreement between Urbastyle and the buyer. From receipt of the order and the buyer’s dimensioned construction issue drawings and details we will produce ‘As Built’ drawings for your approval. These drawings can only be modified once after these are submitted for the first time, free of charge, at the request of the customer. If it is still desired that adjustments are made, these are at the expense of the buyer at a rate of 55€ / hour. The price per element will therefore always be offered on these working drawings after each change. Until the moment of final working drawings, the price of the offer is not binding. Without written confirmation there is no commitment between the buyer and Urbastyle. Urbastyle makes a reinforcement proposal, which is checked by the buyer's engineering office.

Urbastyle accepts no responsibility for delays in receiving drawings or errors in drawings if the correct information has not been sent. We will not be able to commence procurement or manufacturing until we have receipt of approval of our drawings, approval must be in writing. Any delays in receiving the approved drawings may cause requested delivery dates on orders to be missed, in which Urbastyle accept no responsibility for.

Samples delivered for analysis or choice of concrete type only have an indicative value.

They do not exempt the buyer from nuance differences in the concrete structure or colour differences. The degree of finish of some types of concrete can differ significantly between the pour side and the formwork side. All grey visible elements fall under the designation fair-faced concrete instead of architectural concrete.

Measuring and checking the measurements on the working drawing are entirely the responsibility of the buyer.
No check or test has been provided for in our prices and has to be paid "even if required by the specifications" before it can take place. No charge can be made to us for tests and no invoice can be accepted in this respect: not even if there is any doubt about the quality of our products.

For deviations larger than 5 weeks after exceeding the agreed schedule, storage costs will be invoiced at 25,00 € per element per month.
Delay in delivery does not entitle the customer or client to compensation and does not entitle him to claim the dissolution of the order. Compensation can only be requested by the customer if expressly agreed in writing.
Under no circumstances can a fine or cost be imposed on us in respect of late delivery, if this has not been agreed in writing. In any case, the total amount of the fines and/or costs to be paid will always be limited to a maximum of 5% of the total amount of the order.
