TRADITIONAL CRAFTS


We are glad to present some interesting films about the traditional crafts in our area.
Some of them have disappeared, others are still active thanks to associations and volunteers,
who hand over the traditions and keep them alive for the younger generation.

    Dispatch and delivery

    What is the average order preparation time?

    The estimated order preparation time is indicated in the order confirmation and is determined as follows:

      • articles produced by atp that do not require assembly, in standard packaging: 5 working days
      • articles produced by atp that require assembly: 10 working days
      • metal articles without surface finish for the door and window handle business: 10 working days
      • metal articles with surface finish for the door and window handle business: 4 weeks
      • articles not produced by atp: 4 weeks
      • glider and button cords packed in protective sleeve: 6 weeks 
      • tilt & turn mechanisms 30x60 and 30x65 mm with integrated spindle: 6 weeks 

    If possible
    , when the goods are available on stock,
    we will send the merchandise before the date specified in our order confirmation
    .

    How do I know when the goods have been dispatched?

    When the goods have been prepared for dispatch, so that they are ready to be picked up by our carrier,
    we will send you a notification email with a copy of the transport document (documento di trasporto - DDT),
    that advises you about the dispatch and about the articles and quantities that will be sent.

    What is the average transport time of the carriers?

    Italian mainland: 2-3 working days*
    Italian islands: 4-5 working days *
    UE: 5-7 working days*

    (*) purely indicative, non binding.


    What is the delivery condition ?

    The delivery condition is indicated in our order confirmation.
    Normally we apply the delivery term free destination for Italy and DAP (Delivered At Place) for the EU.
    These delivery conditions simplify your purchasing process,
    because you will not have to take care about the organization of the transport.
    Moreover we can send the goods faster, since our usual carriers pass by our company every working day.

    Before returning the goods ask for an authorization from our commercial department
    and check if the value of the goods justifies the transport costs! 

    Since our plastic articles have a relatively low value, we are not able to check each and every single piece.
    We do our regular quality audits on a random basis and we consider a non-conformity level of maximum 1%
    as physiological inevitable and therefore acceptable.
    At the same time we would like to stress,
    that most of our packaging contain an over-quantity of 0-1% with respect to the stated quantity.

     

    Which articles cannot be returned?

    Unless the error was caused by atp, we do not accept returns of the following products:
    » articles cut to measure;
    » special versions with the article description between equals (==), that are produced only on request;
    » articles in customized packaging;
    » articles produced exclusively for clients with the mould of the client
       (recognizable by the article code that starts with the letter I).

    Products

    How can I find more information on the raw materials?

    We process thermoplastics and the most sophisticated engineering plastics
    and to complete our basis product range we supply brass, aluminium, iron, stainless steel and fiber glass articles.

    In the product section of our website you can also find more information regarding the material of a specific article
    by clicking on the material of the article you are interested in.

    atmospheric agents, such as humidity and others.

    How can I identify the colours of the articles?

    The colour "neutral" is the colour of the plastic material, without the addition of dye.

    The colours of plastic injection moulded articles are never 100% identical
    to the colours of the international RAL or Pantone standard.
    The eventual specification of the RAL or Pantone reference is purely indicative.

    We are equipped with modern packaging machines allowing us to supply packagings that meet various kind of needs,
    including customized packagings, which contain the quantity required by the customer,
    with the client's logo, a drawing of the article, a barcode and so on.

    Made in EU

    Where technically possible (from a dimensional point of view)
    all the thermoplastic articles produced by us are marked with the text "Made in EU".

    Why some products are identified by equal signs (==) before and after the article description?

    Articles with the description between equal signs (==) are special versions,
    that we do not keep on stock and which are produced only on request.
    They are subject to € 150 set-up costs, if the order quantity is inferior to 10 production hours.
    The above mentioned set-up costs cover the following fixed costs for very small production batches:
    mould installation, mould removal, cleaning, configuration of the injection machine and so on.

    For larger quantities no additional set-up costs will be charged.

    In our online catalogue you can find all the products produced by us, both standard and special.
    For the specials you can find an indication of the hourly production, by clicking on the link "Details" in the relevant product frame.

    Articles that are produced on request only are subject to a quantity tolerance of +/- 5%.

    Articles not produced by atp

    In addition to the articles of our own production, we market some service products to complete our basis product range.
    In accordance with our transparency policy, it is pointed out in our catalogues (in a comment next to the product image)
    when an article is not produced by atp.
    To ensure a maximum service level and product quality we cooperate exclusively with European suppliers.
