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.
24mm Double Glazing
The Warmalog comes complete with 24mm sealed window units for increased insulation. This is a single, ready-to-install unit comprising of two sheets of 4mm toughened glass with a 16mm spacer, which allows for optimum convection current between the glass, ensuring condensation-free windows. They are made in our own factory and fully conform to European Standard EN1279.
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.
19mm Tongue & Groove Roof
All of our log cabins are supplied with 19mm tongue & groove roof boards as standard. We make our roof from single pieces of slow-grown spruce as this is the perfect material for the job, especially when comparing to alternatives found on the market. Our tongue & groove roof boards are fitted in the same way where each board is slotted into the next, creating a strong surface and attractive ceiling.
