NEW at Lugarde, the panel system
27 February 2020| News| Chris
We are proud to introduce a new building system, the panel system. With this system, assembly is quick and easy. This is because all wall panels are prefabricated in our factory. The panels create a modern-looking construction. The panel system is a mix-and-match principle where you decide which panels or type of wood you want to use in the garden house of your dreams!
The name says it all, the system consists of ready-made panels (walls). All you have to do is attach them to each other. This makes a considerable difference during assembly. You get to enjoy your own garden house in no time. If you choose Siberian Larch or Douglas wood, you don’t need to paint for now! Optimum enjoyment, without too much maintenance, who wouldn’t want that? Do you prefer spruce? Have the panels pickled, pre-treated or boiler pressure impregnated by us in the factory. This way, the weather doesn’t stand a chance against your new garden house!
The roofs of our garden houses with a panel system are flat and the dimensions of the garden house are up to 4 metres deep and the width of the house is unlimited. Naturally, it is possible to design a garden house with the dimensions that suit your garden.
Wood types for the panel system
There are various wood type options for our panel system. It is not possible to combine different types of wood, but it is possible to combine different panels. More about that later in this article.
Siberian, that must be cold, right? Indeed, Siberian Larch grows in very cold areas. The cold climate causes the trees to grow slowly. This makes the wood extremely durable and has strength that is comparable to oak. Siberian Larch can stay outside untreated for up to 20 years. This does depend on the location and weather conditions. Siberian Larch will become a bit greyish over time.
Furthermore, this wood species is characterised by a yellowish colour and relatively small knots. The lifespan of this wood can be further extended by treating it with a transparent stain or oil. This also prevents the previously mentioned greying to a large extent. Siberian Larch is not comparable to European Larch, as it has about double the lifespan!

This wood species is also very durable and originates from Western Europe. Untreated, Douglas wood can last approximately 10 to 15 years, again depending on location and weather conditions. The colour of this wood is light yellow-red to yellow-brown. If this type of wood is treated with a transparent oil or stain, the lifespan will also be extended here. This also ensures that there will be less greying.

Finally, with our panel system, it is possible to choose spruce. This wood species is characterised by a very light colour and it is a versatile softwood species. Lugarde’s spruce grows in the coldest areas, so the trees grow slowly and the wood is very strong and durable. Spruce must always be treated to protect it from the weather, and we offer various colour treatments for this.

The different types of wood all have their own advantages and create their own unique appearance. This way you can be sure that you have a garden house in your garden that you can enjoy for a long time and will suit you, your garden and your house perfectly.
We mentioned it briefly, but the possibilities with the panel system are endless because you can choose from as many as six different panels. We will go through all the different panels and explain to you what the possibilities are.
A one-sided wood panel
These panels are available in sizes 150, 200 and 250 centimetres in a vertical, horizontal or gunwale variant, depending on the type of wood you choose. The inside of this panel is not covered.
A two-sided wood panel
These panels are also available in sizes 150, 200 and 250 centimetres in a vertical, horizontal or gunwale variant, depending on the type of wood you choose. The inside of this panel is covered with spruce with a spring-and-groove connection.
This is comparable to a two-sided wood panel in terms of available sizes and interior finish. The difference is on the inside of the panel. It contains a layer of 60 mm Rockwool insulation.
A door and window panel
These panels, too, are available in sizes 150, 200 and 250 centimetres. These panels have a recess for the window or door of your choice. The recess in the panel is cut exactly to size in the factory.
Just like the other panels, these are available in sizes 150, 200 and 250 centimetres. The glass panels are double glazed, which is also safety glass. The panels can be supplied with or without rods. An example of glass panels with rods is shown below.
Lastly, we have included the slat panel in our collection of panels. These are available in sizes 150, 200 and 250 centimetres. The slat panels are made of Siberian Larch and can be treated with a coloured stain. It is also possible to leave them untreated. With a slat panel, you are sheltered but can still enjoy a lovely breeze. Furthermore, sunrays will slightly shine inside.
