We are very proud to be able to say that all of our steel components are manufactured within 10 miles of our offices in Amblecote. We are also very proud of the fact that we source all of our steel from the United Kingdom.
When the steel sections come back to us from manufacture they are individually inspected and hand finished before being put into stock. This process may consume a large amount of man hours but we believe that it is this attention to detail that makes our raised bed product as good as it is.
Before any order is sent out we ensure that all the steel components stack nicely on top of each other. This speeds up build time considerably.
Our Larch timber comes from the United Kingdom, usually Cornwall. We buy in large loads of minimise the number of miles the timber has to come. In this way we keep our carbon footprint as low as we can. We plane and and then shape the edges of the timber to ensure there are no splinters and it fits our steelwork. Our beds are often used in schools and public places so they must be smooth to the touch and not pose a splinter risk.
We think we may be a little obsessed with attention to detail and quality but surely this is not a bad thing? Our way of thinking and working extends throughout the entire product, right down to the badge which is fixed to the top of one steel corner section. We could have taken the easy route of having a self adhesive badge printed on thin metal foil but that would go completely against our company ethos. In reality our badge is as well made and durable as the rest of the product. It is constructed of quality components throughout. It proudly displays out company details along with the serial number of the raised bed.
We simply do not compromise. Quality is everything. We make and sell a patented premium product without equal in the marketplace.
