Cheap imitations from China and other countries are entering the market more and more…
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Knock-offs of popular waterfront products are not only substandard, they’re flat-out illegal. When you’re considering waterfront products, be sure to protect yourself and your patrons from the hazards of cheap imitations. Cost savings from knock-offs end up costing you a lot more in the long run. Here’s why:
❶ SAFETY & COMPLIANCE Factories producing imitation products are not subject to meeting any specific safety standards, nor are they required to certify their products through third-party test houses. This often leads to counterfeiters faking compliance certificates or simply not using legitimate test houses at all. Our manufacturers do not cut corners to skirt the law.
❷ QUALITY All our manufacturers stand behind their products with warranties that will protect you from any manufacturing defects. With their on-going years of design innovation and use of the highest quality materials, you’re getting long-lasting products suitable for commercial environments. Our manufacturers are literally the founders of the industry.
❸ SUPPORT We understand when we offer you turnkey solutions that include consultation, installation, operational guidelines, and even emergency plans, you’re not just “buying products”. We owe it to you to ensure you get what you pay for — to make sure your investment is authentic in every way. We’re here to help you every step of the way, and beyond.
❹ LIABILITY If you buy cheap imitations directly, in the event of an incident involving those products resulting in injury or death, you can be held liable not only as the business operator, but as the product manufacturer. You may also be exposed to trademark, copyright or patent infringement lawsuits. When you buy direct from an illegitimate factory, legally you assume the role of the manufacturer.
