fast and simple
SolidLox uses a connective system that allows your erectors to slot the posts and beams together with minimal effort. We use adjustable post-bases for easy levelling so you will not have to alter posts on site, which would be time-consuming and costly.
All these components are fitted at our factory. Our timber garage kits and other structures are delivered to you ready to be assembled and can be erected far quicker than any masonry equivalent.
Our erection team can have your structure up within a few days, working independently of the weather, and we can put up the basic frame even in the rain, whereas brick-built structures would face delays.
If you wish to use your own erectors, any experienced builder should be able to have one of our kits up in no time at all. Each one comes with instructions and slots together like a jigsaw. No specific carpentry skills are required.
The speed of construction of our timber garage kits presents you with a significant cost saving over the time it would take to build a brick or concrete equivalent. You will require less labour to erect them, and the foundations required can be significantly smaller than a heavier masonry structure, futher reducing your built time.
As with most timber frame builds, erection leaves minimal waste on site for you to clean up versus a block or brick build.
The modular nature of SolidLox means it can easily accommodate your design changes. If you require fitting of windows & roof lights, insulation, personnel or garage doors, we can provide these for you at merchant competitive prices.
We manufacture our kits to the highest quality to ensure they require minimal maintenance in the future, and that your end buyers will be thoroughly satisfied.

appealing to end buyers
Attractiveness of Timber
The addition of a timber carport or garage to your project can entice potential buyers. It is a far more attractive option than a concrete or masonry structure, and buyers will be drawn to the traditional post and beam style.
A SolidLox structure can blend into the natural surroundings where a metal or concrete garage would look unsightly. This can make them more favourable to planners, particularly for developments in rural areas or conservation areas.
Our timber garages serve a practical function for end buyers as a place of storage. Whether they intend to use the ground floor for parking cars, there is space in the roof for storage in both our high pitch room-in-the-roofmodels, and our low pitch models, with storage space in the rafters.
Timber is naturally insulating, unlike metal or concrete, which makes our garages ideal for use as a workshopbuy end buyers. They can also be fully outfitted with electrics and security lighting. The garage can also serve as an additional area for the fitting of photovoltaic panels.
Please get in touch and send us your plans so we can discuss the requirements of your project.
other solidlox applications
SolidLox is a truly versatile system, able to lend itself to a range of developments…
To combat stringent parking rules of local councils, our carports can provide shelter for vehicles while still being classed as a parking space, while a fully enclosed structure would not. They can also be adapted for use in courtyard parking areas, where walls and bulky doors would impede vehicles turning.
Our multi-bay garages can serve commercial, leisure or retail developments too. The modular nature of SolidLox means we can widen the bays with minimal cost to allow for disabled access, and with peoples’ comfort in mind, our system can be used to build covered walkways, as well as smoking shelters and cycle stores for offices and shops.
Examples of SolidLox uses:
Garages & Carports
Multi Bay Carbarns
Biomass Boiler Rooms
Biomass Fuel Stores
Stables & Barns
Swimming Pool Enclosures
