FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG DO THE ORDERS TAKE TO DO?
The Order goes through a production line . we normally say between 6-8 weeks. But if we are on a film production it could take us longer to process the order , so if you are placing a order , please contact us first. So we can let you know are schedule.
CAN I ORDER A UNIQUE DESIGN?
Yes you can, but it will be very expensive. Our process begins with our design team who pass on drawings to the armourers who then make the originals in metal. This is all done in-house, in our own studio and workshops. (This is the most time consuming and costly part of our process, some of our prototypes take weeks to make, especially where there is fine engraved detailing.)
We then make a series of moulds from which we produce replicas in Poly. All the component parts are then painted, hand finished and assembled ready for shipping. We recoup the cost for design and prototyping by reproducing many copies from each of the moulds.
DOES THE PAINT COME OFF?
Like any painted surface it will scratch but it won’t flake off.
DOES IT DEGRADE OVER TIME?
ARE THERE ANY SHARP EDGES?
All edges are rounded and smooth so they will not cut.
WHAT ABOUT SIZES?
We ask that you provide us with you head/chest size when ordering to ensure a good fit.
DOES IT LOOK REAL?
Until you actually touch it and pick it up, you cannot tell it is not metal/leather/cloth etc.
IS IT SUITABLE FOR RE-ENACTMENT?
Yes it will stand up to fighting with metal weapons, we can thicken the material if required for added protection.
WILL IT STAND UP TO LATEX WEAPONS?
Yes it will.
HOW STRONG IS IT?
We have run over armour and helms with a 1.5 ton four wheel drive. They squashed flat but sprung back into shape as soon as the pressure was released and the only permanent damage was some scratches from the gravel on the road.
WHAT IS THE ARMOUR MADE FROM?
The armour is made from a hybrid polyurethane. We use 2 different materials – a hard one for the armour, helms and shields, and a softer, more flexible one for the leather and cloth items.
