BS 3632:2015

Residential park homes. Specification

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : November 2015



What is this standard about?

It specifies how to manufacture residential park homes and lodges to ensure they’re safe and fit for purpose.

Who is this standard for?

The standard is relevant to the following people in relation to residential park homes and lodges:

  • Designers and manufacturers
  • Contractors
  • Specialist sub-contractors
  • Customers 

Why should you use this standard? 

It gives the minimum specification for residential park homes in terms of ventilation, thermal insulation, stability once sited, room sizes, etc.

Without this standard, some manufacturers would use building regulations, which are not best-suited to this product. Others might assemble basic products that would not be built to any known standard and which could be unsafe. 

What’s changed since the last update?

The 2005 review didn’t take into account increases in required energy efficiency, nor improvements in technology. The 2015 changes to BS 3632 are designed to help manufacturers produce more energy efficient homes that will cost less to run and be more comfortable to live in.Manufacturers will now produce more energy efficient homes as there is a grading system built into the new standard where the Heat Loss Parameter is set at the very high level of 3.As well, spread of flames includes reference to the new Euroclass rating system used in Europe.
