Uses for Pods

We never cease to be amazed by the enquiries we receive from people wanting to acquire a sleep pod for places and uses we never imagined!

The most common use of the pods is to provide a private comfortable nap setting in busy and stressful work environments. After that the accommodation industry is the next biggest user of the pods because they allow a large number of guests to sleep in private in a relatively small space. There has also been enquiries from people who want to use them as a private multimedia gaming/entertainment pod, for meditation/wellbeing centres and on large boats and in tree houses!

The strength of Podtime pods is their versatility.

Podtime sleeping pods can be used as comfortable beds for a full nights sleep. Furthermore, they can be fully outfitted after-market for the users requirements including features like internally fixed audio and television. And they're relatively quick and easy to assemble or disassemble should the need arise.

Podtime customers include the Sydney Swans AFL team, Facebook, Nestle and the Canterbury Bulldogs NRL team. Business types we've sold pods to include airports, shared office space environments, universities, libraries, database centres, elite sporting clubs, live theatres, corporations, stock exchanges, architects, meditation centres and Podtels (pod hotels).

Why a Sleep Pod?

As organisations increasingly move towards open plan layouts and become aware of the benefits of rest to employee health and output, the need for having a private area for down time and relaxation becomes apparent.

The same applies for hard workers in occupations that require intense concentration or physical exertion. Mental and physical fatigue affects your performance.

Waking up tired or going to bed exhausted after another caffeinated day to help see you through?

Napping is the healthy lifestyle option. A brief secluded timeout is nature's way of recovery and boosting your energy levels. 

Rest at work is not a fashionable New Age concept or a fad; the science supporting the importance of a 15-25 minute brief break is very clear. Increasingly power napping is being embraced worldwide and in some parts of Europe and Asia the siesta has always been part of their working culture.
