NORTON ARMOURIES FILM
AT THE HELM OF QUALITY ARMOUR.
With over 50 years combined experience in the industry, the team at Norton Armouries are specialist producers of lightweight polyurethane armour and props. Our dedicated and highly skilled designers, sculptors and mould makers can work with you on any project, from the design and creation of custom pieces to using our unique painting and finishing techniques on your own existing pieces.
The quality of Norton Armouries' work is outstanding: the paint finish is so convincing that their helmets look more 'real' than 'real' metal but they're light, comfortable and durable enough to do everything we need - which includes being worn underneath a lake with scuba gear, and fitted with safety helmets for jousting horseback knights.
The team were a pleasure to work with: always helpful and accommodating, quick to find design solutions and never late on delivery - even for some terribly last-minute orders. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for film or live spectacle; we were delighted with every piece we ordered.

Norton Armouries responded quickly to my request to make a number of sets of a variation on Roman Armour. Not only did they meet short deadlines, they added in some optional elements additional to what asked for and everything was finished to a high spec. I'm delighted and will definitely be using Jon And Josh for my next armour project. Thank you!

From the first enquiry, followed by concept and design ideas to then the final production, all the team at Norton Armouries are very professional to deal with. No job is too small or too big and the high level of quality which shines through their work ultimately shows how passionate they are in all they create.
We have used them for a number of jobs over the years and if they haven't got it in stock or need to make something they will, which makes their willingness to help and their openness to adapt in such a world of tight deadlines, ever changing looks and quantities very rare to find. We look forward to working with them for many years to come. Keep up the good work guys!

Norton Armouries have provided me with a fantastic service on a number of occasions for shows at Shakespeare's Globe. They always bend over backwards to help and their customer service is faultless. The actors are grateful to wear armour that really looks the part, but is comfortable and light to wear. I would recommend them without a shadow of a doubt.
