    What is BS3632:2015?

    BS 3632:2015 Specification for Residential park homes and Residential Lodges is a British Standard introduced by the British Standards Institute, that specifies the minimum requirements for the design, construction, and performance of residential park homes and lodges.

    BS 3632 aims to ensure that residential park homes provide comfortable and energy-efficient living environments, covering design and build aspects such as structural integrity, insulation, ventilation, fire safety, plumbing, electrical systems, and overall construction quality. It sets out specific criteria for features such as the thickness and performance of insulation materials, the strength and durability of the structure, and the efficiency and safety of heating and ventilation systems.

  • To be approved by the NCC, static home manufacturers must ensure that their residential park homes meet certain quality and safety standards.

    The requirements outlined by BS 3632 encompass a comprehensive and technically intricate set of criteria. However, to simplify this, the following highlights some key advantages associated with constructing a residential specification home:

    • Increased wall, flooring and roof insulation
    • Double glazed windows
    • Central heating and improved ventilation systems
    • All A-rated appliances, including low energy (LED) lighting where applicable
