Salter Spiral Stairs 5-Year Warranty Salter Spiral Stair stands behind our product with a 5-Year Warranty on everything we sell and a lifetime warranty on metal fabrication (see below for details). You can trust us if you have a problem we will fix it for you, that’s the bottom line. If you have any questions please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-800-368-8280 Metal Stairs and Part Warranty Salter Spiral Stairs will warrant all metal for workmanship and defective parts for a period of five years from the date of delivery. We may require you to send us the old part back or provide pictures of the part at our discretion to enact the warranty. Additionally, we will warrant the fabrication of any metal parts for the lifetime of the stair – this includes the welds on all parts from breaking or “popping.” The warranty will be voided if the stair is not installed in accordance with our instructions or if the stair has been abused or not properly maintained by the customer. If the stair is properly installed and maintained in the event of an issue Salter Spiral Stair will pay the cost of shipping you replacement parts. Special Note regarding Aluminum, Galvanized, and Painted Galvanized about Rust During the installation process we require that wherever seal of the finish is broken the area must be resealed to prevent moisture. Particular weak points are the cutting of center balusters and wherever a screw is fastened through the finish. If you do not follow the instructions carefully, oxidation (rust) may occur. We provide you with the material to recreate the seal whether it be tough gel, touch up paint, or galvanize spray we require you to use it or it will void the warranty. Wood Stairs and Parts Warranty Salter Spiral Stair will warrant all wood stairs and part for workmanship and defective parts for a period of five years from the date of delivery. We may require you to send us the old part back or provide pictures of the part at our discretion to enact the warranty. The warranty will be voided if the stair is not installed in accordance with our instructions or if the stair has been abused or not properly maintained by the customer. If the stair is properly installed and maintained, in the event of an issue, Salter Spiral Stair will pay the cost of shipping you replacement parts. Special Note about Wood For interior installations we require all sides of the wood to be finished with at least three coats of high quality polyurethane within 30 days of the receipt of the stair. This includes top, bottom, and all the sides of the wood tread and platform covers. For exterior installations finishing is optional and per the customer’s discretion. The performance of our wood products is dependent on the wood species, installation environment, and the care and maintenance given. Wood stairs or parts are not warrantied when installed outdoors. Return Policy Only Adjustable sleeve metal stairs may be returned for a refund within 90 days of receipt of the stair. All returns must be authorized by a Salter representative before being returned. You may not return a stair if installation has already begun. Once the stair is received we will inspect it and refund you the cost of the stair less a 15% restocking fee. Shipping charges are non-refundable. You may not return any stair with continuous sleeves, aluminum, all wood, or one-piece all-welded spiral stairs. All freight charges on returns will be paid by the customer. In no event shall Salter Spiral Stair’s total liability for any or all breaches of warranty exceed the actual amount invoiced to our Customer. Exchange Policy Only Adjustable sleeve metal stairs may be exchanged for another stair within 90 days of receipt of the stair. All exchanges must be authorized by a Salter representative before being returned. You may not exchange a stair if installation has already begun. Once the stair is received we will inspect it and exchange the stair for a different one. We will charge you or refund you based on the cost of the new stair versus the exchanged one.

The Salter Advantage – Made in the USA We manufacture high quality spiral stairs. That just happen to be made in America! Salter Spiral is proud of not only maintaining its roots as an American manufacturer but also its continued growth during a time when American manufacturing is shrinking. As an American company, we buy American raw material and manufacturer our stairs in America with good –old-fashion skilled craftsman. Our 25+ years of manufacturing experience has allowed us to streamline our production process, reducing waste while still maintaining quality control. Just take a closer look at our techniques and you will see the difference in our stairs. Metal Tubing Cutting All metal center columns and tread sleeves start with raw tubing which is cut to exact dimensions. This computer-aided cutting ensures each component is uniform and cut to precise dimensions for perfect sizing. Skilled Woodworking Each wood platform and tread is constructed of hand glued components. Once dry, the glued pieces are ready for planning and cutting. All wood stairs are still hand-crafted in our factory. CNC Plasma Cutting Each steel or aluminum tread is precision cut using state-of-the-art CNC Plasma technology. All specifications are created in CAD and then transferred to the Plasma which cuts the final tread shape out of metal sheets. Press Brake Folding All metal treads are folded using a press brake. This computer-aided equipment ensures the treads are folded to the proper angle and ready for welding. Component Alignment The tread/riser and sleeve are checked for proper fit and examined for imperfections. At Salter, every aspect of manufacturing is reviewed for quality assurance. Precision Welding The steel and aluminum tread components are precision welded by hand, which guarantees the final tread is not only strong, but also aesthetically pleasing by minimizing poor and unsightly welds. CNC Wood Router All components of a wood tread are precisely cut from wood stock using CAD and a computer-controlled CNC Wood Router. The treads are now ready for assembly and final finishing. Finish Application Metal stairs are either finished with a painted primer, powder coating or hot dipped galvanizing process. Here, steel balusters receive a black primer finish.
