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.
4mm Toughened Glass
We use 4mm toughened glass in our windows and doors for increased safety and security. It's much better than 3mm horticultural glass, commonly found in garden buildings, as it's a lot harder to break, and if ever it is broken it breaks into small pieces rather than large shards. It is also much harder to scratch than the plastic alternatives, styrene, acrylic and perspex, so will preserve your clear view out for far longer.
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 (6'1") tall you can walk right the way through without any danger of them bumping their head.
Avoid Sagging Roofs
Our heavy duty 140mm or 210mm heigh by 45mm wide supporting roof beams prevent unsightly sagging.
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.
Quality Windows and Doors
Our best windows and doors are reserved for our top of the range cabins. With gasket seals for weather proofing, laminated timber in the longer sections for increased resistance to warping, larger sections of timber and better joints. Along with our best hinges, locking systems and largest opening sizes, we've developed these using our decades of experience in the window and door industry and they are unmatched by our competitors.
Plastic Vents
We believe we are the only Log Cabin company to fit ventilation to their log cabins as part of the kit. We have done this to help prevent condensation build up within the building. We use two pairs of plastic base plates, one round and one square. The external round vents have chamfers to help direct water away from the hole, the inner square vents have an integral fly screen to prevent insects from entering through the vent. The pair of vents allows a flow of air through your log cabin to help keep out musty smells.
