Glamping Pods Specify Metrotile and Decra Roofing

Glamping Log Pods Decra Oberon

In these uncertain times, travelling has become – at the least – fraught with concern about travelling overseas and any subsequent quarantine ramifications and at the most, an impossibility. This has applied to both work and play and people have had to adapt to a new normal of home working and ‘staycations’ as the pandemic has continued. However, an increase in need for home office space or camping accommodation has actually been a boon for the Glamping Pod industry.

Glamping Pods – AKA Log Pods – are portable, timber frame buildings that can be trailered from location to location and are as at home in a camping site as they are in the garden of a professional needing extra space for work activities. They are sustainable, and available in a variety of finishes, which is where Metrotile Lightweight Roofing comes in.

As durable as a timber frame is, the low weight of a Metrotile roof offers incredible security and aesthetics without compromising the weight or thickness profile of the Glamping Pod. Both Metrotile and our sister product Decra have found success with manufacturers across the UK, particularly the Metrotile Shingle and Decra Oberon tiles as favoured by fabricators including Teifi Valley Camping Pods and Newfoundland Lodges (AKA Original Pod Co.) 

One of our customers from the Glamping Pod industry states:

“I really like the overall quality of the Decra Oberon tile, from the low weight and fast installation  to the step in the centre of the profile that makes it easy to install around the Pod’s curvature”
