  • Thermal Efficiency. LID does not warrant the amount or percentage of argon or other inert gas present in insulating glass at any time after manufacture. Inert gas dissipates over time, and may be ineffective in products manufactured with capillary tubes. Thermal efficiencies vary with the application of the product. LID does not warrant a specific level of thermal efficiency will be maintained by inert gas, low emissivity coatings, or other product features.
  • Condensation is not a product defect, but the result of excess humidity. Condensation, frost, or mold, mildew, or fungus on product surfaces is not covered by the Limited Warranty.
  • Finish Degradation. Degradation or failure of finish, hardware, or other components due to conditions such as air pollutants, acid rain, salt, sand, chemicals, or other corrosive or abrasive substances is not covered by the Limited Warranty.
  • Screens are not designed to, and will not prevent falls.
  • Determining the suitability and compliance with local or other applicable building codes or standards, of all building components, including the use of any LID product, and the design and installation of any flashing or sealing system, is the responsibility of the buyer, user, architect, contractor, installer, and/or other construction professional. LID will not be liable for any problem or damage relating to inappropriate or faulty building design or construction, maintenance, installation, or selection of products. Windows and doors are only one element of a structure; LID does not warrant that third party certification of a building or project to any specific standard will be achieved through the use of any Integrity product.
