Created by a company with a solid background in Timber Frame

SolidLox was developed by the The Benfield ATT Group in response to the increasing number of requests being received for self build timber frame structures (Garages, Carports, Balconies etc..) that allowed for:

  • Greater flexibility in spans between posts
  • Clear ground floor space beneath Rooms in the Roof
  • Different timber types.

The SolidLox Post & Beam system incorporates innovative modular connections that allows easy building with solid beams from an extensive array of beautiful wood types. All cut to precision to ensure a perfect fit, which brings a further element to traditional style post & Beam construction.

Self Assembly structures are no longer restricted to Glue Laminated (Glulam) timber. All the flexibility, durability and ease of build are present with a SolidLox system, but without the need for intrusive extra supports, pin components or dependence on only one type of material.

A perfect fit everytime

Every SolidLox structure is pre-assembled in the workshop prior to delivery to ensure that you get a perfect fit on-site. All roof timbers are pre-cut and bird mouthed so no cutting is needed on site making the roof assembly just as easy as the frame.

 

SolidLox Post & Beam Construction

 

Get the exact shape and size you want

Choose from a range of Standard "Classic Country" Garage, or Carport designs (you can modify these slightly with little extra cost) or completely design your own.

Our Design Guide shows you how and the resulting parameters can be entered into our online estimator to give you a rough estimate cost for your own design.

 

Match your existing property with a choice of Roof Styles

The most common roof types consist of:

  • Flat Roof
  • Gable, Barn End or Hipped
  • Standard low pitch rafter roof (Generaly used to keep within the 4m rule)
  • Steep pitch rafter roof with a room in the roof

SolidLox caters for all of these and can be supplied with roof lights, gable windows and even dormers.

 

You can choose which Timber you prefer and still get the traditional look

SolidLox kits can be made from a variety of timber types. The current choices available are:

  • Green Oak
  • Douglas Fir
  • Redwood

You can even mix and match. Want Oak front facing post and beams but a cheaper timber for the rest ?. No problem !

** Glulam can also be provided (for those who prefer to use a composite engineered timber)
