What's in an OffPOD?

Section

Decking

We offer Wood, Plastic Composite (WPC) Decking as an option. If selected your pod will be built onto a  decking base with a range of 2 colours

To continue with the high durability and longevity theme, our decking frame is made from galvanized steel instead of traditional timber.

Upgrade to install decking lights which truly finish off the setup.

Cladding

Our Pods come with the option to clad the exterior in our range of Wood, Plastic Composite (WPC) panels. Designed and manufactured to be weatherproof, rotproof and made from 100% recycled materials. Our panels are embossed with a woodgrain effect to give a genuine wooden look with none of the drawbacks.

Choose from Antique Grey and Teak to give your OffPOD that high end finish and watch it settle seamlessly into your garden surroundings

Heating

Our OffPOD's come equipped as standard with a sleek looking, energy efficient 600w electric smart heater with a multitude of programmable features- This means that you will never have to enter your pod and deal with the cold whilst it warms up! With the smart app you can literally control the heater from anywhere in the world (As long as you have an internet connection)

Upgrade to get the luxury of underfloor heating to make your pod as cozy as possible.


Cooling

Although our pods are well ventilated with our standard equipped extraction fans, we also offer a state of the art smart controlled air conditioner system which will be professionally installed on site and give your pod that fresh air feeling on the warmest of summer days.

Insulation

In order to ensure that your OffPOD working environment is optimum at all times we have gone the extra mile regarding insulation.

We use 50mm premium quality insulation boards in addition to 50mm Rockwool acoustic insulation (100mm total) which help maintains a balanced, easily controlled temperature within the OffPOD. Not only will this ensure your comfort but it will also help reduce C02 production and keep bills low by keeping energy consumption to a minimum.

Base Installation

We use professional ground screw installers for all our OffPOD installations. Screws are pilled into the ground which reduces the need for digging up and permanently damaging you garden.

Once the structure is ready to be removed the foundations are simply unscrewed from the ground and the resulting holes back filled with soil.

Our Pods are also designed to be positioned on any flat solid base, so if you already have something in place you could save money. The base will have to be a minimum of 3.0m x 3.0m (for Compact) and 4.6 x 3m (for Exec) and be no less than 100mm thick.

Your base will be assessed during the site survey to ensure it meets our standards.

Power

Our OffPOD's are equipped with 2 sets of double sockets, which all have dual USB charging ports as standard. We have positioned these power points with convenience in mind and to ensure that trailing cables are kept to a minimum.  As standard each OffPOD has a single interior light switch if no external lighting is opted for.

In order to conform with electrical wiring regulations our OffPOD's come fitted with 3 way 63A consumer unit. 

Lighting

Our OffPOD's are all fitted with with stylish recessed LED spotlights as standard. These lights are extremely efficient, shining as brightly as halogen bulbs but using as little as 80% of the amount of energy. Choose from either warm or cool light bulbs depending on your preference

As an optional extra you can add up/down external lighting to your OffPOD (Only available with the cladded option).

Electrical Installation

As standard our Pods come with a 2 way Consumer unit which will enable a safe connection directly to a mains supply. 

Connectivity

We understand that there are few things more frustrating than a slow or unreliable internet connection. That's why we supply and fit a TP-Link Wi-fi boosting kit with each installation.

By using your existing electrical circuitry, the AV600 Powerline Kit easily extends your network, so that you can enjoy instantly improved service to both your wireless and Ethernet connected devices.


Ventilation

As standard our OffPOD's come with an intelligent heat recovery system which ensures that your Garden Room is as well ventilated without losing anywhere near as much heat as a standard extraction system.

Glazing and Frame 

Our OffPOD's come with double glazed glass as standard finished off with a lightweight but durable Aluminum frame (if fitted with optional Bifold's) or UPVC if fitted with standard sliding door.
