NOTE: All aprons must be inspected by the facility before they are put into service. No returns for aprons with alleged pinholes, tears or cracks will be allowed more than seven (7) days after the aprons have been received by the end user. Protective core material is fragile, easily damaged and therefore great care is needed to protect the integrity of the core material. All aprons are inspected and free of defects when they are shipped. Pinholes, tears, cracks and other damage to the protective core material can be caused by many different factors, but if they are not there when the apron is received and inspected, then they are not the responsibility of the manufacturer and the warranty does not apply.
