FAQ

 

Your questions answered

 

Devanét will endeavour to provide answers to typical questions we have from our customers abiout our products and services, if the anwser is not listed here, please contact our sales office for further information.

 

Do Devanet make in the UK?

An emphatic yes, we design and manufacture our products at our factory in Congleton, Cheshire?

 

What materials can you make buckles with?

We have several options solid brass - this is machined on a precision CNC to produce a wide range of pin and plate buckles, Cast - Pewter alloy, a precious metal which is softer than brass from which we can make buckles and other cast gifts. Aluminium - machined on our CNC machinery, resins in cast form - which are impregnated with carbon fibre, other metal filaments and finally 3D printed buckles for rapid prototyping.

 

What finishes can you offer me?

Well thats a tough one to put into such a short space, but essentially electroplated finishes in silver, nickel, gold, rhodium, ruthenium, gunmetal, rose gold.

 

Powder coating in over 300 colours, matched RAL colours.

 

Ceramic Coating of conductive surfaces with a special nono particle coating to reduce tarnishing and improve abrasion resistence.

 

Clear coating - A clear coating to protect the surface finish up to 25 microns.

 

Do you undertake special commissions?

Yes we do, most importantly we use a wide range of software tools to help us design products for our customers.

 

Do you make belts for different applications?

We custom make belts in leather, webbing and combinations of leathers and webbing to make an end product.

 

How long does it take to make a custom buckle?

That depends upon many factors and can be as quick as a week or several weeks, depending upon the design, volume required and complexity. It is difficult to put a date on a project until we have seen the design and what it entails. We have custom designed prototype buckles in a day for very urgent jobs.

 

Do you offer services to the trade?

We certainly do and we make components, finished products and designs for many customers who require a specific service whether it be just cutting to shapes or creating brass masters for molds, or designing a product from scratch.

 

What is you minimum order?

We will custom make items with quantities from 25 upwards, much will depend upon the product itself but that is rule of thumb we tend to work with. The reason for this is that many customers cannot afford to invest in large volumes when they are starting out, or have a small business, or the voluems do not warrant large orders, so we decided we would provide a small order service for anyone who needs our help.
