Betafence 10 years garantee


Betafence Belgium NV and its subsidiaries (hereafter “Betafence”) guarantee hereby its Betafence branded fencing products for a period of 10 years starting from the date of invoice. This guarantee covers production defects as well as its state of preservation. Upon validation of the complaint by Betafence, Betafence engages either to repair the product or to replace the defective product – materials only. The guarantee excludes coverage of possible direct and indirect costs. The guarantee conditions apply differently in the function of the invoiced value of the fencing materials:
- For an invoiced value below 250.000 €: repair or replacement of the material at a degressive rate:

Year 1 and 2: replaced at 100%
Year 3 and 4: replaced at 90% 
Year 5 and 6: replaced at 80%
Year 7 and 8: replaced at 60%
Year 9 and 10: replaced at 50%

- For an invoiced value higher than 250.000 €, no automatic product guarantee will be applied. Only a project-specific guarantee is valid. Any request for a “Project Guarantee” needs to be made at the time of quotation. Products and product coatings will be verified and optimized in function of the specific project location by Betafence Group Quality & Technology. The customer will receive a project-specific Guarantee certificate. 

In case of dispute, an independent inspection authority of repute may be engaged to establish the true nature of the claim.

Garantie 20 years  Betafence eXtreme


Products in a highly corrosive environment:

The same guarantee conditions and exclusions as mentioned for 10 YEARS STANDARD GUARANTY are applied to a shortlist of “EXTREME” products when installed close to the sea. These specific products are mentioned separately on the list. The “EXTREME” guarantee is valid when fencing products are not in direct contact with saltwater or installed just above saltwater.



  • The guarantee of operation; the automation components and lock are limited to 2 years or 20 000 cycles from the start-up date, whichever is the earliest,
  • Gates not correctly installed in line with Betafence instructions,
  • Failure to check the proper functioning of the gate at least two times per year, if needed including adjusted or cleaning,
  • Gates, where regular service by a qualified person has not been done as prescribed in the maintenance instructions, written logging of the maintenance history, must be in place,
  • Improper use of the gate,
  • Unless approved by Betafence, any modification of the gate structure or automation, and the use of non-compatible automation parts makes the guarantee void,
  • Unless approved by Betafence, any modification & or adjustment to the gate structure or automation parts & or parameters, makes the guarantee and the corresponding CE certification of the product void,
  • The CE certification of the Betafence gates is based on EN 13241-1 and EN 12424. As a consequence, the wind load class is defined for a closed position of the gate and is not valid for an open position. The gate should remain closed and not be opened at wind speed of 50km/h or higher,
  • Deformation of the wing of a sliding gate without heat shields due to heating up by the sun at one side; when the wing is installed more or less along the north-south axis and in combination with dark colors such as RAL9005, RAL6005, RAL7016 and other colors with L value (CIE 1976 Lab) below 35.


  • Betafence products that are not taken up in the standard product list available on the Betafence internet website. This list is issued yearly.
  • Damage caused by installation, not in compliance with the instructions of Betafence; fencing installed at a temperature below 0°C for PVC-coated products and privacy fencing or below -10°C for polyester-coated products.
  • Parts of the fence which are intentionally left uncoated for earthing purposes
  • Damages caused by temperatures above 50°C.
  • Damage caused during storage, handling, transformation, installing, or after erecting the product. Rust caused by cutting the Betafence product (the cut edge but as well rust due to sparks generated during the cutting process).The possible detrimental impact caused by non-compatible products. Damage caused by the wind for privacy fencing.
  • Fences installed less than 3 km from saline water, as well as the entire islands in the Atlantic, Pacific, or the Indian Ocean (except for products defined for “extreme guarantee” see below). Corrosion due to abnormal levels of aggressive chemicals or environmental corrosivity higher than Class C3 (ISO 9223).
  • Coating defects are not noticeable with the naked eye at more than 5 meters of the fence. Red rust less than 2% of total coated surface per unit. White rust. Decoloration of coating and stains.
  • Superficial rust or pitting on the surface of stainless steel components might occur, however, the function is guaranteed.
  • Privacy fencing (Screeno-Line, Screeno-Wave, Collfort & HoriZen): Limited deformation as long as the functionality is not impacted. Direct and indirect damages caused by wind and other extreme weather conditions such as storms with hail and lightning.  There will be no degeneration of the material (also not rot caused by insects or fungus for wood and WPC materials), except for stains and discoloration. The fencing systems should not be used as fall protection systems such as balcony balustrades.
  • Posts with hollow section (for example Nylofor post; Bekaclip posts…) installed in a concrete wall (without the use of a footplate) or installed in such a way that the bottom of the post is blocked by concrete (possible water infiltration cannot drain away into the soil).
  • This guarantee does not cover failure or damage due to improper use or application, soil or structural movement, natural disasters, fire, abuse or misuse, vandalism, war, negligence, failure to perform proper routine maintenance.
  • In case of a complaint, the invoice will be requested by Betafence to verify the purchase date of the products. The guarantee is only valid once the full payment of the invoice has been received.
