This year’s ‘Innovation Home’ features Freefoam X-Wood Urban Cladding, prior to its release later in the year, to create a stunning exterior finish.
The whole house was built prior to the exhibition by Off Site Factory Homes in four separate ‘modules’, which were then transported to the show and constructed to form one house. Tony Fox, Director Off Site Factory Homes, explained how the process worked “ To create a durable and stable modular construction we need materials to be light, easy to handle and to withstand the rigors of transportation. Whilst this project was for a temporary building we apply the same criteria to permanent projects. We used Freefoam cladding last year and found it met all of our criteria and made perfect sense to use the new X-Wood Urban product for this year’s house. We found it really easy to work with and were very pleased with the finished results” Tony commented “Construction time using modular

techniques can be nearly half that of conventional methods. Building in a controlled environment, with less stoppages due to weather can really add up. Secondly we find that there is less wastage of materials with no exposure to bad weather. Finally there is a substantial amount of money to be saved when choosing modular over a conventional build, with a shorter programme time for each project and lower labour costs.”
  Lock Lock is not only being increasingly adopted by the locksmith sector, but also by aluminium systems houses such as Kestrel, their respective fabricators and also by the entrance door sector as a whole. It’s based on a registered edgeless design that’s not only beautiful in appearance but is purposeful in application, as the handle body cannot be grabbed by tools for forceful removal.

Colin St John, Freefoam Commercial Director summarised “We’re delighted to have been involved in this project which has allowed us to showcase the suitability of our products for modular construction methods. Whilst we’re aware that off-site construction will not solve all our housing needs we see it as a growing opportunity across our entire range. ”

Nick Dutton CEO of Brisant Secure commented: ‘This is clearly one of the most compelling videos yet of just how good Lock Lock is at deterring the willing burglar. This is a real-life simulation, in an independent test house and instigated by one of our valued customers.
