Check the name of PVC film manufacturer

PVC film is the main element, which is used in stretch ceilings production. There are only seven European suppliers of PVC film. In Germany, the film is made by Pongs, Renolit and Elbtal Plastics, in France — by CTN, SEF and AlkorDraka, in Italy — by Malpensa. There are much more Chinese suppliers on the market. Unscrupulous sellers try to sell the Chinese film like the European. The buyer may get the impression that theere is no Chinese film at all on the market, because many sellers tell them, that they have only German or French film. So who has the Chinese?

First of all, you should visit official websites of manufacturers mentioned above to find a list of companies — partners from Russia. If the company buys film with the help of intermediary, then it must have confirmation, for example, the contract with the supplier. And the supplier at the same time must be specified on the website of the manufacturer. Be sure to call the supplier to clarify whether it works with a certain company.

Ask for certificates and check them out!

The seller must be certified by the manufacturer of PVC film, producers of stretch ceilings, as well as the organizations, authorized to check the safety of products. Fortunately, the certificate authentication is not difficult.

Evaluate the seriousness of the company

Very simple and obvious rule, but many people forget to follow it or just ignore them. If the seller has no formal legal status, telephone and office, consider, who you will then make claims to if there will be any problems?

Conclusion of the contract — is a must!

Do not agree to work without a contract, be sure to read it from beginning to end. In no way do not make 100% advance payment. Specify the terms of performance and guarantees, assumed by the firm.

Be carefull with low prices
