Fully Insulated Garden Rooms For Year Round Use
Quality insulation helps keep your garden pod warm in winter and cool in summer.
With a garden room from Gpod, you can have complete control of the seasons to enjoy your garden at any time.
A wall-mounted 2kw heater with a timer is included as standard with every pod, with optional upgrades for 2kW electric heater by ESSE Vector (available in three colours), underfloor heating or air-conditioning.
Our garden rooms are a quality-built structures that are finished to the same high standards as a room in your house would be. To make the most of your garden in any weather, the extra investment into a fully insulated Gpod could make all the difference.
Gpod use structural insulated panels (SIPs) on the walls and floors. SIPS are a high-performance building system for residential and light commercial construction. The panels consist of insulating foam cores sandwiches between two structural facings, typically oriented stand board (OSB). SIPS are manufactured under factory-controlled conditions and can be fabricated to fit nearly any building design. The result is a building system that is extremely strong, energy efficient and cost effective. The SIP panel is then wrapped in a waterproof breathable membrane. This breathable membrane acts as a one-way valve and allows natural moisture to escape out of the building.
Benefits of Building with SIPs:
Exceptional Thermal Performance
Once installed, SIP panels deliver unrivalled insulation and airtightness, which reduces energy costs over the building’s lifetime. SIPs are known to be about 50% more energy-efficient than traditional timber framing. A SIP building envelope has minimal thermal bridging and delivers excellent airtightness, which lends itself ideally to LEED and net-zero-ready building standards.
Healthier Air Quality
A SIP home or commercial building allows better control over indoor air quality because the airtight building envelope limits incoming air to controlled ventilation which filters out contaminants and allergens. The SIP envelope doesn’t have the voids or thermal bridging of conventional stick framing that can cause condensation leading to potentially hazardous mould, mildew or rot.
SIPs are highly energy-efficient and therefore contribute positively to the environment by reducing CO2 levels. They also use significantly less energy during the manufacturing process compared to traditional construction methods and have lower embodied energy than traditional construction materials, such as steel, concrete and masonry.
Faster Construction with Less Labour
SIP walls and roofs are designed and precisely manufactured offsite. This allows the building to be assembled onsite quickly and made watertight in a matter of days. This reduces costs such as project management, scaffolding, framing labour and much more. A BASF time-motion study confirmed that SIP panels reduce jobsite labour needs by 55%.
SIPs can be engineered and fabricated to suit any building design, allowing architects and owners the flexibility and creative freedom to develop aesthetically pleasing spaces.
