Adjustable Storm Braces
Our adjustable storm braces tie the Log Cabin roof to the rest of the building so it withstands stronger winds. Unlike other cabins on the market they are adjustable to allow the natural movement of the cabin, which helps to prevent gaps appearing between wall logs as the logs settle and move.
Slow Grown Spruce
We use slow grown spruce for the walls of all our Log Cabins as it is better all round than pine! Spruce is less porous than Pine and so less likely to shrink, warp or split. We only select slowly grown timber from colder climates which also helps keep the timber more stable as the rings are densely packed. It is also a less resinous timber than Pine, which makes the possibility of sap ruining your clothes or furnishings much less likely.
Pressure Treated Bearers
By pressure treating our floor bearers, we protect the lowest part of the building from rot and insect infestation. This forces the treatment deep into the timber using a large pressure treatment tank. It is costly but effective process that ensures years of protection against rot and insect infestation on the bearers with no need for the customer to re-treat this timber at any point during that time.
Tall Walkthrough Height
With our extra tall doors, unless you are with customers who are over 1.86m tall you can walk right the way through without any danger of them bumping their head.
4 Point Door Lock System
Our doors feature our four point locking system, that comes with a hook, locking latch and two roller locks. We use a type of lock that has 6 pins and has been tested to BSEN 1303:2005 classification to ensure it is a safer, more secure locking system. Our windows have multipoint locking as well, using the same type of system as we supply with our uPVC windows and doors.
Double Glazing
Our industry-leading 24mm-thick, sealed-unit double glazing is supplied as standard on 45mm cabins, 130mm cabins, and 145mm cabins. We make these sealed units at our own factory, to European Standard EN1279. Made up of 4mm toughened glass, 16mm spacer and another piece of 4mm toughened glass, it's an excellent way of insulating the cabin and extending its usage from a seasonal building to one that can be used throughout the year.
Adjustable Friction Stays
These windows have the same friction stays as we supply on our uPVC windows, meaning that you can open the window and leave it open with just the hinges taking the load, with no need for a stay arm.
Pent Roof
The gentle slope of the roof allows rainwater to flow naturally off the roof but maintains a "low profile" - meaning it is far less obvious than a classic apex roof cabin. This means it blends into the aesthetic cuboid form of the building.
Storage Space
The design of the cabin incorporates a handy storage space- a separate room accessed through its own half-glazed door with a 4-point locking system. This full-height area makes a great playhouse, a workshop for small projects or an ideal space to keep bicycles, garden tools and other large items out of the weather.
