Why Choose Factory Cabins? In a world obsessed with profit, many Log Cabin design specifications and their structural timbers have been greatly diminished. Sadly many companies offer you the very basic to start with and then try to up sell you with very costly upgrades. This in itself is not new to us, however when you drastically cut down the amount of timber used to manufacturer a cabin over profit, then surely safety issues need to be addressed.
There is no such thing as a strong, tough, durable, 19 mm floor board. I am sure there are other quotations used to describe this timber thickness, it is what it is, a roof board. It is not a material thickness for flooring. Also it is not thick enough to manufacture a building from. It is designed to allow the roof to be covered and for this purpose it is perfect.
Factory cabins use 28 mm standard economy flooring. with 70 mm x 45 mm impregnated floor bearers. This is adequate quality economy flooring. Do not settle for less!
Why Choose Factory Cabins For Windows ?
Windows and Doors are the most used and abused part of any Log Cabin, therefore we feel the need to manufacture and install quality Windows and Doors to our garden buildings.
We have designed Quality Tilt and Turn Double Glazed Windows, and Matching Doors. The reason we mention matching doors is because most companies will use thicker glass on the window and a slimmer cheaper / lighter glass in the door. This means the frame work of the door can be used for the 28 mm budget range Log Cabin. 99.9% of companies out there do this.
Factory Cabins do not practice this imbecilic method of selling. As a manufacturer we feel we must push our quality into the market and keep to certain guide lines and Price points. All our Tilt and Turn Windows come as standard with all 44 mm / 70 mm Log Cabins and have CE approved 24 mm Double Glazed Glass packages.
Why Choose Factory Cabins For Roof Purlins ?
As we all know. the expression of “Keeping the roof over our head” This is a very sad and sorry problem for most Log Cabin Suppliers. When you have a span of say 5 meters by 5 meters, a single purlin of 45 mm x 150 mm ( roof beams) is just not going to work. It will bend, twist, and sag. Most companies Brag that they have 45 mm x 150 mm in a normal 45 mm 5 m x 5 m Log Cabin, shouting that this is the thickest in the industry etc. Or they shout that they have a 90 mm x 150 mm purling.
You may ask yourself why we comment, well both these purlin’s will in time sag! Which means that the cabin roof will sag. Sagging can lead to a Log Cabin collapsing. Also be careful if the cabin company you are thinking of buying from sets the purlin in at an angle on the apex, not vertical but at a 53 degree angle, as this means only half the purlin is bearing weight.
All our Purlin’s are set in at 90 degrees on the apex. And our purlin’s are 45mm x 250mm and they are manufactured from slow grown spruce, they are constructed from 2 Quality logs with different direction grains making them incredibly strong screwed and glued. This dedication to detail means our Log cabins are without doubt the best money can buy in the UK. Do not settle for less.
