National warrants that each piece of furniture will be free from defects in workmanship given normal use and care for as long as you, the original customer, owns and uses the product.

Normal use is defined as the equivalent of a single shift, 40 hour work week. In the event that a product is used more than normal use, the applicable warranty period will be reduced to 12 years and items that fall under different warranty limitations, as listed below, will be reduced to one-third (ex: Wood chair frames will be 4 years instead of 12 years). National, at its option, will repair or replace with comparable product any product, part or component shipped after September 1, 2000, if the claim is eligible under the conditions of this warranty. This warranty is valid only if the product is given proper care and maintenance.

Limitations to this warranty include:

 

Twelve Years Wood chair frames.
Ten Years Seating controls, Wood Veneers and Laminates.
Five Years Mechanical and High Wear Parts Such As:Electrical Components, Polymer Based Components, Pneumatic Cylinders, Swivel Arm Pads, Casters, Chair Glides, Textiles, Foam, Covering Materials and Decorative Trim
