    I’d no idea that there was a 10 year life though, quite worrying and maybe we need to get the customer to sign saying they will inspect and check the sign regularly or some such thing.

    I didn’t either until the court cases highlighted it & sure a great deal of other signmakers didn’t either. But don’t forget it’s only 10 years if you don’t stipulate otherwise, don’t know the legality but maybe a standard 1 year warranty would be enough. I do think that you also need to include something to say that after that period the sign should be inspected on a regular basis, not sure if that should be under some sort of maintenance contract or what might be involved in any inspection, guess a lot would be to do with the type of sign.
