STEP INTO SMART CONSTRUCTION

As the UK’s leading leisure vehicle manufacturer, the Swift Group undertakes one of  the most extensive research and testing programs in the industry and we are constantly looking at new and better ways to construct our products.

SMART is the basis of our intelligent construction system that is used across our entire touring caravan and coachbuilt ranges.

Enhanced for the new season, SMART takes the proven technology which provides a Strong timber-less body frame with Modern desirable looks and a leading Aerodynamic shape that is highly Resilient to moisture, all wrapped up in a caravan/motorhome that has undergone the most comprehensive Testing; and adds new balanced panel side walls with GRP outer and inner skins.

With the GRP outer to the sandwich floor and hail resistant GRP roof the full outer bodyshell of the caravan and coachbuilt bodyshell of the motorhome is now GRP making it even more resilient.

Carefully developed, SMART construction was only introduced once we were satisfied that it was truly fit for purpose.

Computer numerically controlled (CNC) cutting is used in the manufacturing process to provide accuracy and consistency time after time, to produce a high quality engineered product designed to give you a lifetime of SMILES.

 

 

STRONG

The Strong timberless body frame uses ‘PURe’, a tough, hard polyurethane based product, that is totally impervious to water and has been proven through use.

MODERN

The SMART construction system uses Modern materials and has been developed to ensure the exterior profiles maintain the Modern desirable looks our caravans/motorhomes are renowned for.

AERODYNAMIC

We continue to lead the way in Aerodynamics using Computational Fluid Dynamics to help shape the bodyshell for better fuel consumption and safer towing.

RESILIENT WITH GRP SIDE WALLS

Balanced panel side walls with GRP outer and inner skins. GRP is more impact resistant than aluminium and can be easily repaired, ensuring long lasting good looks, securing your investment for the future.

TESTED

Extensive safety and durability Testing at the Millbrook track, and cold chamber Testing down to minus 15°C and beyond puts prototypes through conditions most products will never have to experience in a lifetime; all part of the Swift ethos to deliver the best products to you.

FLOOR CONSTRUCTION

‘Sandwich’ floor construction with ply upper, high rigidity Styrofoam core and GRP outer skin to provide greater durability from the elements. All fixings are made into the ‘PURe’ material to a pre-defined depth. ‘PURe’ is totally impervious to water and has no veins. This means there is no passage for water from the outer skin to the inner wallboard, making the caravan highly Resilient to moisture.
