The following is the Limited Warranty issued by EcoPath Mats (EcoPath) for our EcoMax and EcoRib Mats. This warranty begins when the mat is purchased. The mat must be installed and maintained in accordance with industry standards. The Limited Warranty is further limited to the period of time the mat is owned and maintained by the original end-user purchaser. The basis of any warranty related claim is the original EcoPath or authorized EcoPath dealer invoice.

No warranty of any type is provided for use of EcoMax or EcoRib on stairs or in athletic playing areas or playgrounds.

Fiber – Abrasive Wear (5 years)

EcoPath warrants that EcoMax and EcoRib mats will lose no more than 15% of the pile face fiber, by weight, during the five (5) year warranty period. This warranty does not cover appearance retention, matting and crushing, and normal appearance changes in high traffic areas. This warranty is for abrasive wearing and does not cover pile face fiber loss due to burns, cuts, gouges, pilling, staining, shedding, soiling, oiling or fading.

EcoPath warrants the face fiber in our needle punch polypropylene broadloom products will not disintegrate for a period of three (3) years under normal conditions in outdoor use due to ultraviolet (UV) degradation.

This warranty is reduced to one (1) year in the states of Arizona, Florida, New Mexico, Texas and the southern halves of California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah.

Limited Warranty for Golf Spikes (3 years)

EcoPath warrants that the face fiber in this carpet will not wear through to the point where the backing is exposed when subject to normal golf spike traffic, such as encountered in pro-shops and locker rooms.
