Product Description

We have a wide range of jackleg cabin option of different sizes, all made brand new to order in the UK.

Jackleg cabins used to be extremely popular but have recently become more specialised, the main feature difference between a jackleg cabin and a different style of portable office is (you’ve guessed it!) the jack-legs (legs that allow you to jack the unit up or down).

The legs allow a normal truck to deliver this item to your site. when the truck is over the spot you want your office unit you can drop the legs and fix them. The truck then lets the air out of its trailer suspension and moves out from underneath the cabin unit that is now supported on its legs. You can then slowly and manually lower the unit into position on site without heavy and expensive lifting equipment. This can also allow you to lift off in area where overhead obstructions may prevent a traditional lift off via crane.

All of our cabins are manufactured using high-quality materials within the UK and have a long life expectancy. These are all made to order allowing for a high degree of customization. You can choose where your doors, windows and even light and electrical points are positioned and you can have a high degree of input over the exact spec and layout if needed as well as materials used. Obviously changing the specifications will alter price but you should find custom jobs very cost effective versus ‘off the shelf’ standard designs. If the alterations will help you get better use from the end product they are well worth investigating with us at least.

Available in a range of different lengths, our standard specification has external secure steel doors which have a multi point locking system, 70mm casement uPVC double glazed windows, LED strip lights with a 1.5kW eco panel heater. Please note the images may show similar spec cabins of different sizes made by the same manufacturer. If you want a cabin like this but a different size we can do this, please contact us and ask! (we are only listing our most popular size options currently)

We can provide a wide range of additional extras including upgraded insulation and energy saving features if required.

These are generally used for, but not limited to:

  • Temporary classrooms and kitchen facilities
  • First Aid facilities
  • Break rooms for workers to protect from the elements
  • Temporary offices, site offices, longer term office accommodation
  • Kiosks, food service and concessions stands,
  • Welfare cabins, security posts.

In terms of customisation, we can offer whatever is desired provided that it is with in reason. Please feel free to enquire to our sales team if you would like to discuss your specific requirements, and we’re always happy to help.
