Sustainability at its heart

Our Applecrates are built to maximise energy efficiency. They are fully insulted from the floors to the ceiling with state of heart glass keeping the Applecrate cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Built in factory conditions mean less waste as well and less time on site. Our concrete pads are our default foundations and are much less disruptive and use much less concrete than tractional foundations.
