3: Production

Our pods are made of reinforced steel fibers concrete. Walls, roof and floor will be cast, and then left to dry for a minimum of three weeks before mounting. The cabins are both bolted and glued together. This ensures a solid construction with minimal risk of movement during transport and lifting.

Two layers of membrane are added in contrasting colors to ensure that all places are sufficiently covered. All joints and transitions will be reinforced with felt and cuffs. Membrane is layered onto the entire cabin, including outside wet zones. Hence the membrane is applied after the cabin has been mounted, we ensure that the sealing layer is free of joints and weaknesses.

All tiles are in high quality and are layered manually by our long experienced tilers. This allows us to offer a wide selection of colors and formats. The tiler works by a tile drawing approved by you, ensuring that grout and transitions appear as you wish.

When the tiles are finished the pods will be moved to the clean production hall. There our electricians, plumbers and assemblers will install all components agreed upon including. We strive after delivering the finest quality in the market, and therefore use moisture resistant materials in our standard inventory.
