  • Residential Specification

    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
    • Soundproofed walls
    • Larger spaces for ovens and refrigerators/freezers
    • More rigorous advice and warnings
    • Thermostatic controlled hot water supply

I have owned a Pemberton Static caravan for 10 years. It is the best caravan I have ever had and dispite its age it is as good as new.

We are the proud owners of a Pemberton Arrondale having previously owned a Pemberton Rivington. The quality of the build, finish and décor etc. is great and sets their models apart from other makers. f we were to upgrade again we would need a lot of persuading to move away from a Pemberton model.

I bought a Pemberton Marlow this year and it's absolutely wonderful in every way. The accommodation is spacious, the layout brilliant and the quality of the fixtures and fittings superb. The master bedroom is everything you could ask for, the kitchen fully equipped and the lounge a perfect place to relax, whether it's watching the sunset through the patio doors or the TV in front of the fire. Add to that central heating, full insulation and a great bathroom and it's ideal in every way.

This year we replaced our eighteen year old Park Lane with a new 3 bed Marlow. The service and attention we received from Rose at Pemerton and Olan at Olan and Son was nothing short of superb. From planning the model we required through to delivery was top notch. As for the mobile itself, "you pay your money and you get what you get" - this is a wonderful holiday home and with the residential spec could easily be used throughout the year. The fittings and general construction remain as high as the original Park Lane we had. Thank you Olan & Rose
