The ‘Natural Shelter’ low carbon shelter range is of exceptional build quality with its main components, including the wood and roof, warranted for a minimum of 50 years in the punishing weather. The wood, stainless steel and concrete have been selected as they have no maintenance requirements. The glazing is 10mm toughened glass and, bar sever vandalism, will not break, scratch or discolour in its lifetime. The main timber structure is intentionally over engineered to enable cost effective custom shelters to be made in different sizes and configurations, and for durability.
Metal and wood painted shelters require long term painting to maintain their appearance. Often this is not possible, especially in the case of local authorities, due to cost. Natural Shelters are designed to be different, they can besupplied with no coating, or left to age naturally, requiring no future treatments other than cleaning. The modified wood is impervious to fungi, rot and insect infestation. Natural Shelters boast excellent environmental credentials by using wood sourced from FSC certified sustainable forests.
Natural Shelters have been designed using principles of sustainable design. They are the result of 4 years of development work with sustainability to the fore. The engineered wood components all sequester carbon, which offsets the carbon cost of manufacture and transport.
The wood components and roofing structure feature some of the most advanced modified wood technologies available and carry a host of awards.
