Metal Frame Construction Light Gauge Steel Frame

Each Pod that leaves our factory is built with a Metal Frame Construction Light Gauge Steel frame – not timber. This has several benefits, most importantly the steel won’t rot, twist or crack as timber is liable to.

Garden Room Pods from The Pod Factory are built to withstand the elements and to last a lifetime.

Modular Method
Built Offsite

LGS aides us in using the modular method while constructing the Pods. Being able to build offsite causes little to no disruption of the site, whether that be the garden of a family home or an empty field.

Light gauge steel is robust and strong, because we have manufactured the Pods in this system, it allows the Pods to be lifted into position easily on site.
