Variations will be charged for on the basis of BG’s quotation, and will be detailed in writing, and shown as variations on BG’s invoice.

(a) all descriptive specifications, illustrations, drawings, data, dimensions, ratings and weights stated in BG’s fact sheets, price lists or advertising material, are approximate only and are given by way of identification only.

(b) while BG may have provided information or figures to the Client regarding the performance or rating of the Goods, the Client acknowledges that BG has given these in good faith, and are estimates based on industry prescribed estimates and/or testing standards.
