Frequently Asked Questions

Q - Do you provide samples
A - We generally keep samples from the last time we used a production tool. These might be a different colour or material to what you need, but we can usually provide something suitable. Samples are normally 2-300mm long for ease of posting

Q - What are your Minimum Order Quantities for production runs?
A - These are usually 1000m but can vary depending on the profile and material requirements. We can run 500m or even short prototype runs on some tools, but these can work out relatively expensive. Please phone or email us for more specific details

Q - Do you keep stock of the profiles listed?
A - Some of the items shown are stock items, and this should be clear from the table details. However, you can email or phone us for precise information

Q - How long does it take to get extrusion tooling made?
A - If the profile is reasonably small and simple the normal lead time is 1-2 weeks. For more complicated tooling the lead time is generally 2-3 weeks. Very complex or large tooling can take several weeks.

Q - Can you colourmatch to our specification?
A - Yes, from a RAL or Pantone reference, or a physical sample of the colour itself. A matched colour can add to the lead time and cost of a production run as the material may need to be specially made with a high minimum order quantity
