Specification

At Polar Lodges we manufacture our lodges to a highly exacting specification.  Every lodge is built to exceed the requirements of BS:3632, the residential standard for park homes. We are also a member of the NCC Product Approval Scheme.  This means that our lodges are subject to a strict inspection regime to provide consumer protection over and above the requirements of BS:3632. Our lodges undergo over 600 checks to ensure that they comply with UK and European safety and manufacturing standards.  For more information on the NCC scheme please click here.
