COMPLETE TERMS: All sales by Fab-Form are governed by these terms and conditions of sale ("Terms"), together with
other sales terms, if any, agreed to by the Buyer and Fab-Form in writing ("Sales Terms"), such as those on written Sales Orders,
Invoices and Quotations. In the event of an inconsistency,
the Terms shall prevail. These Terms, together with the Sales Terms, if any, are referred to herein as the "Agreement".
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the Buyer and Fab-Form regarding the sale of products ("Products") by Fab-Form to the Buyer
and sets out the final and complete expression of all terms and conditions of this Agreement. Any representations, promises, warranties, or statements that are not contained in this Agreement are
void. If this Agreement is or is deemed to be an acceptance of a prior offer by Fab-Form or the Buyer, the acceptance is conditional on the Buyer's acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Fab-Form hereby gives notice that it expressly rejects any terms or conditions contained in any document that has been, or may in the future be, supplied to it by the Buyer which are
inconsistent with, or attempt to vary, any of this Agreement, whether such terms or conditions are set forth in the Buyer's bid, proposal, order acknowledgement, invoice, or otherwise
disclosed to Fab-Form. Fab-Form's sale or delivery of any Products to the Buyer will not be construed as an acceptance of any terms or conditions contained in any
document provided by the Buyer. Any action by the Buyer in furtherance of a sale or purchase of Product shall constitute acceptance of this Agreement. These terms and conditions can be modified, waived, or
amended only in writing signed by an authorized representative of both the Buyer and Fab-Form.
ORDERS / ORDER CHANGES.
Orders for Products will be submitted by the Buyer to Fab-Form in writing
and in English using Fab-Form's then current product specifications.
TERMS OF PAYMENT. The price for Product is the price in effect on the date of shipment, unless otherwise agreed to by the Buyer and
Fab-Form in writing. Fab-Form may adjust the price of any Product upon at least
thirty (30) days prior notice unless otherwise agreed to by the Buyer and Fab-Form in writing. Payment
is due according to the terms set forth on the invoice issued by Fab-Form. If the Buyer fails to pay any sum
owed hereunder when due, interest shall accrue and be payable by the Buyer to Fab-Form on such sum at the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate allowed
by law, whichever is lower. If Fab-Form, in its sole discretion, finds it necessary to employ an agent or attorney to collect any past due sum owed hereunder, it may
collect, in addition to any other sum owed hereunder, reasonable agent's or attorney's costs (including fees, disbursements and taxes).
FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. Any credit terms offered by Fab-Form are available only for so long as the Buyer complies with all of its
obligations under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the provisions requiring timely payment of invoices within the required time. If credit terms are no longer available,
the Buyer shall pay cash in advance for all purchases. If Fab-Form has any doubt at any time as to the Buyer's financial situation, Fab-Form, at its option, may either (a) decline
to make further shipments except upon receipt of cash in advance or upon giving of other security satisfactory to Fab-Form, or (b) terminate this sale. Nothing in this paragraph is
intended to affect the obligation of the Buyer to accept and pay for the Products.
NO DEDUCTION. The Buyer shall not be entitled to deduct from the price invoiced to it by Fab-Form the amount of any claim asserted by
the Buyer against Fab-Form, unless such claim has been allowed in writing by Fab-Form. The provisions of the preceding sentence are of the essence of this sale.
TAXES. All sales, excise, or other forms of taxes and duties levied against this transaction shall be paid by the Buyer over and
above all other sums the Buyer may be or may become obligated to pay hereunder.
TITLE AND RISK. Fab-Form warrants it has and will convey good and marketable title to the Products. Unless otherwise provided in this
Agreement, risk of loss of Product shall transfer to the Buyer at Fab-Form's or the original manufacturer's plant at which the Products are manufactured when the Product has been
loaded onto the carrier taking delivery of the Product, regardless of whether the Buyer or Fab-Form is arranging for the transportation of the Products. In addition, unless otherwise
provided in this Agreement, title to Product shall transfer to the Buyer simultaneously with risk of loss.
DELIVERY. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, Fab-Form will arrange for transportation of the Products from Fab-Form's or the
original manufacturer's plant at which the Products are manufactured to the destination required by the Buyer, then: (a) the delivery dates are approximate and subject to carrier
availability, (b) Fab-Form reserves the right to route all shipments and may assist the Buyer in processing claims against carriers, without incurring liability therefore, (c) the
Buyer agrees to be responsible for timely off-loading of Products at their destination (typically two hours for a truckload), and any costs payable for any delay in the timely
offloading of Products by the Buyer shall be for the Buyer's account, (d) any increase in delivery costs resulting from the Buyer's inaccurate or revised delivery address or
instructions to Fab-Form or to the carrier, and any extra costs of utilizing substitute methods of delivery or off-loading, including when the intended type of carrier or loading or
unloading facilities become unavailable, shall be for the Buyer's account, (e) any claims for loss or damage after risk of loss has passed shall be filed by the Buyer with the
carrier, (f) Fab-Form shall not be liable for loss or damage from delay in delivery or failure to manufacture, (g) if delivery is delayed at the request of, or due to acts or
omissions by the Buyer, Fab-Form shall have the right to store the Products at a place of its own choice for the Buyer's account and risk and to invoice the Buyer in
accordance with the original invoicing and payment terms and for such storage charges incurred as a result of the delay.
AND ACCEPTANCE: The Buyer shall, upon delivery of Products to the destination at which they are unloaded from the carrier that is transporting
the Products from Fab-Form's or the original manufacturer's plant are manufactured, immediately count and inspect and either accept or reject
such Products within a reasonable period not to exceed fourteen (14) calendar days of delivery (the "Acceptance Period"). In the event that Products do
not comply with the requirements under this Agreement, the Buyer shall promptly notify Fab-Form and provide a specific written explanation of the basis for rejection.
The Buyer shall be deemed to have accepted any Product delivered hereunder and to have waived any right to reject in the event that Fab-Form does not receive such notice of
rejection within the Acceptance Period. Fab-Form shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to repair or replace non-conforming Product at Fab-Form's option, provided
that, if Fab-Form reasonably determines that the Product complied with the requirements under this Agreement when the Product was loaded onto the carrier taking delivery of
the Product, then all expenses related to the improper rejection are the
responsibility of the Buyer.
PRODUCT: Stock Products may be returned within 90 days of purchase. Special Order Products cannot be returned.
Fab-Form is not responsible for freight costs associated with Product
returns. Returned Products must be inspected by a Fab-Form
representative with restocking fees as detailed in Agreement. A product
return must be authorized by Fab-Form prior to the product being returned.
Returns must be received within 14 days of Fab-Form's return authorization.
PRODUCT PROTECTION. To avoid Product damage and/or mold growth, the Buyer shall protect all Products from physical
damage, moisture and ultraviolet light exposure according to industry customs during transit, storage, and use, including without limitation, transit to,
storage at, and use on a jobsite.
RESALE OF PRODUCTS. If the Buyer is reselling any Product, the Buyer agrees to furnish its purchasers copies of these Terms
and incorporate these Terms in the Buyer's sales order and invoice forms, and Fab-Form agrees to make copies available upon request. In all events and regardless of whether the
Buyer complies with this provision, the rights of such purchasers shall be determined under the provisions of this Agreement.
DELAYS/FORCE MAJEURE. In the event Fab-Form is unable to ship the ordered Products because of fire, flood, windstorm, or other
act of God, labor or civil disturbance, shortage of raw materials, failure of timely delivery by Fab-Form's suppliers, energy or transportation shortages, or any other
cause whether or not similar to the causes listed above, beyond Fab-Form's reasonable control, Fab-Form reserves the right to cancel the affected order without any liability to the Buyer
whatsoever. In no event shall Fab-Form be obligated to purchase material from others to enable Fab-Form to deliver Products to the Buyer hereunder.

than fifteen (15) days after delivery of notice of termination. Acceptance by Fab-Form of less than the full amount due shall not be a waiver of any of Fab-Form's rights under this
Agreement or applicable law. In any event, the Buyer shall remain liable for all loss and damage sustained by Fab-Form because of the Buyer's breach. Notwithstanding any provision
in this Agreement, Fab-Form shall have no obligation to pay any rebate, issue any credit or make any other payment of any kind to the Buyer unless the Buyer is fully in compliance
