Guarantee installation quality in pod bathrooms

The ease and speed of on-site installation for pre-built bathroom pods manufactured off-site are revolutionising many fields of building construction. 

Today’s state of the art units are elegantly designed and have all the fittings associated with modern bathrooms. Enclosure manufacturer Spelsberg UK, is helping pod builder Offsite Solutions develop ready to run electrical systems that can be connected up as soon as the pod is in place.

First generation bathroom pods could be somewhat utilitarian, but project managers loved their simple installation, which saved time and cost, reduced risk and guaranteed quality. Over the years the concept has been developed so that today’s pods include all the features and fittings that define a comfortable modern bathroom. This has increased the complexity of the electrical wiring required, but Offsite Solutions has worked with Spelsberg UK to develop a solution that can have the bathroom functioning within minutes.

Today Offsite Solutions is the premier bathroom pod manufacturer in the UK, supplying over 10,000 pods every year to leading contractors and developers. Based in Somerset and employing 250 people, the company offers a comprehensive range of high quality bathroom pods to suit all sectors and budgets, from cost effective GRP composite units, to top of the range steel framed pods.

The GRP pods tend to be used in student accommodation, care homes, military establishments and refurbishment projects, whereas Steel frame pods are usually destined for installation in residential, and hotel buildings.

While Offsite Solutions design capabilities have grown to meet demand, some aspects of the business remain the same; such as the need for quality electrical enclosures. It has formed a supply partnership with Spelsberg UK, the largest supplier of non-metallic enclosures, ex-stock, in the UK, to ensure that it specifies the best solutions for any given application with minimum lead times. Where necessary Spelsberg is even able to design and machine customised solutions and assemble them with DIN rails and terminal connections prior to delivery.

Spelsberg has been working with Offsite Solutions for about six years, and is now our major supplier of electrical enclosures.

Through understanding Offsite Solutions’ drive to advance the concept of pod bathrooms, Spelsberg has developed many bespoke solutions and is committed to delivering them, ready to install, on the short lead times often required in the construction sector.

Simple bathroom pods originally relied on Spelsberg’s A Box enclosures. These are empty enclosures built to a quality standard suitable for use in demanding environments. They are made from glass fibre reinforced polycarbonate and supplied with a polycarbonate lid. They have double membrane seals and insulating plugs to ensure full protection of the electrical connections within. 

As a general rule, there is one electrical enclosure per pod, so that all connections are in one place. Thus, when installed on site, only one set of connections has to be made, and, once the equally rational plumbing is connected, the bathroom is fully functioning and ready for use.
