The Original RainRoom
The RainRoom has an elegantly curved transparent roof supported by beautiful wooden purlins, curves and posts.
The RainRoom pictured above is approximately 5 meters by 3 meters, but we can build them in a range of sizes to suit you
Choose Scottish Oak posts supporting beautiful Douglas Fir roof purlins for the ultimate in natural beauty and strength. Oak is an extremely strong, durable and attractive wood which doesn’t need any preservative treatment for outdoor use.
The rich colour of posts cut from Scottish Larch heartwood, renowned for its durability, supporting the richly characterful Douglas Fir roof purlins. Larch also requires no preservative treatment for outdoor use.
We are committed to keeping our environmental impact as low as possible and are delighted to be able to source Scottish grown, sustainably managed wood from Scottish Woods, a not-for-profit hardwood sawmill based near Dunfermline, Fife. You can read more about their philosophy and what they do here: Scottish Woods
Our softwoods are sourced from MGM timber Scotland's top independent timber merchant who pride themselves on sourcing Scottish sustainably grown timber.
For all our RainRoom curves we use sustainably sourced Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified marine quality plywood.
Aware that in Scottish conditions, sunshine can occasionally be hard to come by, we have designed our RainRoom to allow in the maximum amount of light. We use strong multi wall clear polycarbonate sheets which provide excellent light transmission, while almost totally blocking harmful UV radiation. Multi wall polycarbonate is extremely strong and has a life expectancy of 20 years.
If you prefer more shade, for example to cover a hot tub, you can choose bronze twin wall polycarbonate.
If you would like a luxury clear glass-like covering, we can also supply a roof of solid polycarbonate.
We are very happy to add that it is produced in Scotland.
The curves in our RainRooms are joined to the posts with solid stainless steel bolts for the ultimate in strength and durability in exterior conditions.
