This is a very significant financial milestone for our customers as this kind of security has never been equaled in this industry
Calhoun, GA (Vocus) August 12, 2010
Within the artificial turf industry an insured warranty has become a necessity, not a luxury. Customers are now demanding third-party protection. FieldTurf has once again raised the bar by increasing its current $13,000,000 USD insured warranty policy with excess coverage of $19,000,000 USD for a total of $32,000,000 USD per claim. This marks the best possible insurance coverage for FieldTurf customers and further separates FieldTurf from the competition when it comes to customer protection.
FieldTurf was the first company in the artificial turf industry to introduce an insured warranty in 1999. While most other artificial turf companies are attempting to replicate FieldTurf’s protection with umbrella coverage, FieldTurf has chosen to invest in the security of its clients by increasing the total warranty coverage from $13 million to $32 million per claim.
With FieldTurf’s industry leading warranty protection, there is no deductible, no limit per claim, and no retention. Most importantly, FieldTurf fields are automatically covered for 8 years upon issuance of the Warranty Certificate and no reporting is required – meaning that all FieldTurf fields are covered. Protection is not an option.
“This is a very significant financial milestone for our customers as this kind of security has never been equaled in this industry,” said FieldTurf President Eric Daliere. “It is important for our clients to realize that this level of protection is truly the ultimate.”
