Fabrication FAQS


Who do you fabricate for?

Delway fabricates it’s own range of products as well as custom made items for domestic and commercial customers. We work with a range of interior designers, architects, builders and d.i.y ers to produce a variety of bespoke items.

 What do you fabricate?

At Delway we work with a large range of metals to produce a variety of items. Some of the articles we manufacture are balustrade, handrail, shop fittings, furniture, lights and bathroom fittings including floor grates. As the majority of our fabrication is customer specific and custom made, at Delway we can make anything from a brass high tea stand one day to a stainless steel balustrade the next.

 What materials are available?

We work in most metals. As a guide some of these are Brass, Copper, Stainless steel, Aluminium and Mild steel.

What finishes are available?

We offer a range of finishes which depend on the base metal. Our finishes include highly polished, satin, aged brass, linished, powdercoated and electroplated. Once fabricated we can finish the article to your desired look.

Do you custom make?

Yes. Our capabilities are not limited to production runs. The majority of works our fabrication department produce are one offs. So whether you need a one off, prototype or just a repair Delway can accommodate your specific requirements. We also offer an exclusive manufacturing service so you can use Delway as your very own workshop.  

Do you make shower channel drains?

Yes, we call them floor grates. Delway only manufactures quality products as this is highly evident with our channel floor grates. Using 316 marine grade stainless steel, manufactured to your specific measurement and carrying a watermark approval this is a product you can use with confidence. See floor grate page for more information.

Do you do repairs?

Yes, our fabrication department is not limited to manufacturing only and therefore is able to accommodate most metal repair requirements.

Does Delway site measure and install?

Yes. We offer these services, contact us to arrange a site visit.

Do I need a detailed architectural drawing?

No, not always. We can work from an idea, picture or sketch.

Do you have a display of your work?

We have a full showroom dedicated to what we do however as our fabrication is normally custom made we don’t display what other customers have created. You can see some of our work in the fabrication gallery. Our range of finishes, materials and standard products are on display at our Edwardstown showroom.

How much does it cost? How long does it take?

We would love to give you an exact idea of time frame and cost however every job is different. Pricing depends on a number of factors. To get a quote either call in to our showroom or email us some details. We can provide ball park figures and time frames over the phone so give us a call for an idea to get you started.
