Over the past few years there has been considerable growth in the British holiday market. One of the many areas which has seen expansion is Glamping, with an explosion of new sites that have opened around the UK to meet the demand of the staycation. Glamping Pods, which are factory built and delivered to site have become extremely popular with their distinctive curved design, which seems to have become the standard framework for the industry.
There are many companies that can provide windows and doors for these types of structures, but very few like Force 8 who can provide unique systems to fit the distinctive curved designs. Being able to glaze the full area and follow the curve allows more light and better views, as well as a better connection with the great outdoors.
Force 8 have been involved in profile bending for over 30 years and have perfected their system to an artform. Each frame or set of frames is custom made to the exact requirements of the Pod design. Every arch and curve are engineered from a single length of profile, with no breaks or welds, giving a more aesthetic appeal as well as a structurally stronger frame. As far as the company is aware, this single length process is still unique to Force 8; the normal process is to bend shorter lengths and then weld them together.
When you are constructing on what is basically a production line, the need for a reliable supplier to keep the production flowing is essential. Force 8 have invested constantly in the latest computer-controlled CNC cutting machines and equipment to stay ahead of the game. They can produce multiple units of unusual, curved designs to a millimetre perfect finish, which is ideal for this form of construction. The last thing a manufacturer wants is for his production line to be slowed down because of ill-fitting products.
All the doors and windows all come with the latest security fittings and hardware, which has always been a priority for Force 8. The Pod doors are fitted with 2 hooks and deadbolts to make sure when locked they are fully secure, giving the residents peace of mind while on their vacation.
Force 8 have been supplying arched and curved windows to tight deadline throughout the UK for many years and have the delivery infrastructure to cope with this growing demand in the Glamping Pod market.
