LASER LEVEL WARRANTY AND SAFETY INFORMATION
CMI Industries Pty Ltd is a proudly Australian owned and operated company offering a range of professional quality lasers and levels.
You can be sure that when you buy one of our lasers you get the best tool for the best price possible and can be assured by our attention to detail and back up service.
The Principles behind our warranty.
* Duration of warranty is fixed and automatic, when we advertise 5 years on a particular model, its five years. No drop down to a lesser time if you forget to register, registration is NOT required just proof of purchase showing date.
* Although the duration of our warranties are for a particular period it does not mean we will charge you for a genuine warranty failure a month or two outside that warranty period, we believe in a fair go.
* Even though a product shows signs of accidental damage, scratches and the like, we will not automatically fail the warranty claim, if the fault is NOT caused by a drop or misuse and is a genuine warranty failure then we will cover it.
* Our aim is to return repaired or replaced products as soon as possible as we know that being without your tool can be inconvenient. Our goal is a 48 hour turnaround (2 working days) after receiving it. Sometimes, however, a product with an intermittent fault may need extended testing to make sure we have made a full repair.
* Calibration is not covered by warranty much the same as the wheel balance on your car is not covered by warranty, we do however offer a one off free re-calibration service (RedBack Models ONLY) during the period of warranty, conditions and details below.

All Batteries sold separately come with a 3 Month Warranty
Lasers are rated by hazard classification, according to their ability to cause harm.
Class 1 lasers are not hazardous.(used on just a few laser levels but limited to invisible low range units)
Class 2 lasers are normally not hazardous due to the human eyes aversion responses the automatic reflex to blink and look away from bright or sudden light sources (used in all Redback’s “Red” beam lasers).
Class 3 lasers are hazardous where eyes are exposed to direct laser beams or reflections from mirror/glass type surfaces.(used in Redback’s Green beam lasers please read required OHS regulations for your industry)
Class 4 lasers are hazardous to eyes, and the direct beam is a fire hazard and serious skin hazard.(never used in laser levelling equipment)
In the construction industry lasers are of either the Class 2 or Class 3r type. Class 2 type lasers as specified in AS2397 require very little time to safely set up on building sites, for example rotating beams need not to be terminated with boarded fencing. Class 3r however require more planning to use such as provision of trained staff and termination of all laser beams.
