Spacious decks were installed on luxury holiday homes at the upmarket Holgates Caravan Park, to extend the living space and make the most of the picturesque Morecombe Bay location.

The customer:

Having recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, the five-star AA accredited Holgates remains one of the most popular holiday parks in Lancashire and owner Michael Holgate also runs a nearby sister site in Carrnforth.  The prestigious park has achieved numerous accolades including a gold standard David Bellamy conservation award and a five-star Visit Britain Quality Rose. 

The project:

The family-run holiday park set in the Lakeland countryside fitted decks on three plots as part of a luxury holiday home package. FUSION Commercial Outdoor balustrade with glass panels was chosen to offer customers the park's most desirable aspect and to maintain the high specification of the luxury homes.

The balustrade:

FUSION Commercial Outdoor balustrade with glass panels was installed around the curved decks, which extend from and surround three of the park's best-placed homes, overlooking steep cliffs with stunning views.  In light of the location, the balustrade was an essential safety feature, over 15 glass panels were fitted around the edge of each deck.  By selecting the glass panel option, the breathtaking views remain undisturbed.

We were drawn to the FUSION commercial range because of its instant aesthetic appeal and the glass system really stood out, as the panels enable holiday owners to take full advantage of the spectacular views. We have sold all three plots, as the finished look is so impressive and the real added bonus was the ease of installation.
