EN 1647 Wall construction
At Regal Holiday Homes we believe that the inherent wall construction within a caravan is fundamental to producing a durable and high quality product that will provide many years of enjoyment, with a strong heritage of manufacturing luxury caravan holiday homes. Our holiday homes are constructed using a decorative wallpapered internal wall board, timber studding incorporating polystyrene insulation to assist rigidity, finished in a scratch resistant aluminium exterior.
Equally as important as the wall construction, the strength and design of the roof in a holiday home caravan is essential in producing a caravan capable of providing a comfortable and secure holiday home for many years of enjoyment. The dual pitch rafter used on all of our roofs has been successfully tested and approved up to a grade D snow loading. Our holiday homes all have a dual pitch rafter with a minimum 100mm fibre insulation, a breathable moisture resistant membrane and Versasteel plastisol tile effect roof sheets. Much of the strength in our dual pitch roof is derived from the fact that we build all of our roofs in one piece providing extra strength.
PVCu window systems
By providing double glazed windows with a sealed unit depth in line with those found in domestic buildings we believe the insulation properties on our holiday homes are among the best in the industry. Domestic standard PVCu double glazed windows and doors are provided as standard on the Symphony Lodge, Artisan Lodge, Harlington and Somerton models. Single glazed windows are provided as standard on the Kensington, Elegance and Kingsbury models with the option of double glazing if required.
A fully galvanised chassis is standard on the Symphony Lodge and the Artisan Lodge. A pre-galvanised chassis is standard on the Harlington, Somerton and Kensington and is available as an option on the Elegance and Kingsbury.
A choice of external cladding is available, including anti-scratch aluminium, rigid vinyl, wood effect Canexel, timber loglap and cedar.
BS3632 Residential specification
The Symphony Lodge and Artisan Lodge are built to BS3632 as standard. The Harlington, Somerton and Kensington are also available with the option of being upgraded to BS3632 residential specification if required.
The enhanced thermal insulation is summarised as follows: Exterior wall insulation upgraded with the addition of a sound reducing insulation that has been tested under regulated conditions. Window insulation is enhanced by the addition of Pilkington K Glass.
