Twin Skin Log Cabins are not new to the market, we should know, we were the first to design and to manufacturer them and offer them to market which was over 10 years ago, since then every man and his shed has started manufacturing them.
No doubt, they are all waiting for us to come up with something new, so they then can follow the leader!
So to all the manufacturers out there, its time to invest 300.000 Euros, and for once buy a CNC New Machine, and offer a quality twin skin log cabin that works independently but is still connected. I can hear all the mills scratching their heads at that one!!
Our Twin Skin Glulam log cabins are not just available in 80mm x 80mm they are also available up to a staggering 340mm x 340mm.
There is no other manufacturer offering this kind of engineered Glulam Log quality, which is quite possible due to the simplistic, finger jointing machines they have purchased which have huge limitations.
Twin Skin Log Cabins are great for garden offices, residential 2 bedroom cabins, school buildings, class rooms, sport halls, swimming pool halls and the like. However when purchasing a quality twin skin glulam log cabin, you must pick the company very carefully.
There are many companies out there that claim to sell our product; we are now telling the public to email us first so we can direct you to an honest, reliable dealer.
Sadly, our quality has put us very much on top of the wish list for log cabins, and other manufacturers have suffered with falling orders. Sadly it has come to our attention that agents from other cabin brands claim to be able to source our products. So if you are looking for a quality Twin Skin Log Cabin please send us an email.
At Log Cabins LV we pay lots of attention to our products’ durability.
One of the way of extending woods service time is impregnation, especially in places where timber might be constantly affected by excess humidity or water.
Such places are log cabin’s wall bearers, floor bearers and/or terrace decking bearers.
The impregnation system that we at Log Cabins LV use and which proved to be very effective is called Tanalith® E. Timber impregnated using this methodology undergoes several stages.
Seasoned timber has to be stacked just like for drying except that the size of the stack cannot exceed limitations set by impregnation chamber manufacturer. After loading timber stack in to a hermetic impregnation chamber the stack is pressed top to bottom by a hydraulic press in order to prevent timber boards twisting and warping during the impregnation process, the press releases only when timber stack is ready to be taken out of the chamber.
When chamber door closes and seals air tight powerful vacuum generators start reducing the pressure inside. When the pressure drops to a minimum the whole chamber gets flooded with liquid preservative agent, in case of our log cabins with Tanalith® E. After this the pressure is raised to atmospheric and timber starts sucking liquid in. Then the pressure is raised further to over 8bars in order to force preservative deep in to the wood.
The last phase of pressure treatment involves dropping pressure to atmospheric level, draining out impregnation liquid and creating vacuum again to remove excess amounts of liquid from the wood. By that time wood preserving substances are locked inside wood. This part end by normalizing pressure to match atmospheric. Door is opened and stack removed from the chamber.
Before using treated timber must drip off any remaining liquid residues and dry out. Log Cabins from us comes with pressure treated wall and floor bearers that are pre manufactured to the right lengths and do not require sawing or any other manipulation other than laying them in correct order. However if for some reason impregnated timber were to be cut notched or drilled, one must apply end grain preservative to maintain the integrity of the treatment.
Tanalised® E timber can be safely used in applications with log cabins where untreated timber would not last and rot rather quickly.
