Ordering Fabrication for Ductwork and Ventilation parts – You Sketch it – We make it
We know how difficult it can be getting the right ductwork “off the shelf” when your set up isn’t particularly “off the shelf” it’s self. We’ve been in the industry of Ductwork for over 20 years. Although many of the items we sell are in fact off the shelf, a large portion of our customers do require parts to be fabricated.
Their first impression (and this is almost everyone) as soon as they hear the word “bespoke” is that they ready themselves for one of two things. Long lead times or expensive quotations. I’m writing this article today to show you that neither of them are particularly true.
Yes, of course if you buy something off the shelf you can get it next day. We’re making replacements for the on the shelf items every week. So when the bespoke orders come in, we make them whilst we’re making the other parts. This means they usually have a five to seven day turn around from moment of ordering to receiving. Unless agreed otherwise at the time of ordering.
Ultimately I want to walk you through the process of Ordering bespoke or fabricated ductwork parts here at Dust Spares.

All parts can be custom made to order from spiral ducting to bends, sets and fittings.
The key to a speedy service is giving us as much information from the start as you can, which is the reason for this blog, so you can get the quote and items as fast as possible.
Before submitting a request for a quote, please use our comprehensive search, to make sure the items you’re after are not an “off the shelf” items.
We have three main steps – as follows:
1 – The Sketch
Probably the most important part of the service is; you giving us as much information and details as you can. from the start.
We suggest you make a sketch of what it is you need and a couple angles so we can see what to mock up. We will come back to you with a sketch of our own to clarify what you’re after matches our understanding.
Sometimes a quote may not require a sketch but if you feel it could help just drop some ideas on paper as we may well ask for this.
This is a real life example of something a customer needed from us and what we made them.
