The AirShip Home uses high quality, heavy duty aluminium and stainless steel components which will not rust, rot, or be affected by weather. All the components of the robust frame can be carried by two people so the AirShip can be constructed anywhere, regardless of road access. The AirShip can also be dismantled and moved to an alternative location if circumstances change.
The AirShip is lightweight (weighing about 3.5 tons) and depending on ground conditions can simply rest on four concrete paving slabs, sunk into the ground. It is wholly recyclable and manufactured by Syspal Ltd.
The frame has been engineered by world class structural engineers, Atelier 1, and incorporates several thousand specially manufactured components designed for rapid, strong assembly.
The standard insulated cladding panels are made of aluminium with a core of 100mm polyisocyanurate foam. Thicker insulating panels can be substituted if required at additional cost.
The floor panels are heavy duty aluminium chequer-plate with a tongue and groove pine floor to the central section if required. Floor panels can also be lifted to provide a large insulated storage area underneath, and provide space for storing rainwater channelled from the roof.
The basic internal finish is aluminium which can be clad with timber boarding. We recommend timber ceiling boarding as this is cosier and makes the installation of LED lighting less obtrusive.
High quality aluminium pivot-tilt portholes from Spain provide ventilation and views whilst the ends are double glazed k-glass panels professionally sealed into the aluminium frames with silicone.
"The AirShip can also be fitted with painted, treated timber suspended on nylon webbing to soften its appearance if required"
