1. The Consultation
We are driven by your timetable.
We will have a detailed discussion with our client to determine your exact requirements and likely project timeline. We are happy to visit our client, discuss the fabrication options we offer and present a range of samples and photos to illustrate the sort of work we do.
Following the initial discussion, we can create a sample from our customer’s masonry prior to agreeing and comencing the project.
Aquacut fabrication has a range of technologies to ensure the best result:
- Waterjet cutting
- Wet saws
- Brick saws
- Job specific workspaces to create the most efficient process that ensures great finished pistols on time
- We can create pistols from full bricks by cutting into slips, or working with brisk slips from scratch
2. Receipt of Goods
The customer will deliver the bricks/slips to our large warehouse and fabrication centre in Cheshire where the pallets will be stored securely.
Our dedicated team of experienced craftsmen will be waiting to start producing the brick sets. The fabrication team will be fully briefed and headed up by a senior fabricator who will lead your job from start to finish.
Using state of the art equipment, including CNC controlled waterjet or our professional wet saws / brick saws, our high experienced team will carefully cut the bricks to create the brick slips in precise measurements and mitre angles before returning them to secure boxes on pallets as they wait to be bonded.
Using the best products, we will bond the brick slips together at precise angles. The adhesives we use may be colour matched to the brick slips and specially formulated to create a strong joint in the desired finish.
Once cured, we carefully finish the joint at the face to ensure as invisible a join as possible.
The finished pistols are then carefully checked by our management to ensure they are all acceptable before carefully packing the sets to make them fit for transport.
We have the capacity to manufacture tens of thousands of brick sets each month.
The bricks are securely packaged and returned to the pallets for delivery to our customers.
As we are used to our finished goods being sent around the world, packaging is one of our core skills.
Our packaging contains safety buffers to prevent any damage to the brick sets during transit.
6. Delivery of Goods
Our customers choose whether to collect the goods themselves, or we are happy to arrange transport to your location. Our forward planning enables us to meet tight deadlines.
