Pareto Aluminum Systems LLC (40,000 Mile Limited Warranty)

Pareto Aluminum Systems, LLC (“Pareto”) warrants to the installer of its Pareto ALFO aluminum flooring system, including Pareto-supplied equipment that attaches seats to the floor (collectively the “Floor”), that the Floor will be free from defects in material and workmanship for the first forty thousand (40,000) miles or six months of use, whichever is sooner. This warranty begins the day installation is complete. A defect shall mean a failure of the Floor to substantially conform to Pareto’s design and manufacturing specifications and tolerances and which is caused by a defect in material used in workmanship performed by Pareto.

What is covered:

New Pareto Floor which is properly installed on an undamaged matching transit van vehicle with no more than 200 original miles at the time of installation and when the floor is installed with the listed seats and equipment. For any defect occurring within the warranty period, Pareto or its authorized dealer will repair or replace the defective part(s) free of charge. Pareto will have the right to inspect any parts which are repaired or replaced.

To report a defect, please contact Pareto Aluminum Systems LLC, in writing, at, or at 21455 Melrose Avenue, Suite 19, Southfield, MI 48075:

About Us

Pareto's ALFO aluminum floor allows installers to offer the exact designs their customers need for both wheelchair and conventional seating arrangements, at a cost competitive with traditional steel and plywood construction. The ALFO flooring system is a kit consisting of panels pre-cut to the floor plan of the vehicle that fit together in mere minutes to form a single floor. ALFO's integrated L tracks both eliminate a complicated installation step and provide the flexibility of a virtually endless number of seating configurations. Installers can provide whatever designs their customers want, and if changes to the seating configurations are desired later, the customer can rearrange them endlessly and easily with no increased investment and minimal labor.
