GALVANIZED STEEL CLADDING: These great value buildings are made with galvanized steel throughout. All framing and cladding is hot dip galvanized steel. This is a process by which steel is coated with zinc to protect it from corrosion. The cladding is subsequently coated with epoxy resin, partly to protect the zinc coating itself and partly to add colour. The factory finish is described as primer although a top coat is not normally needed. The combination of a zinc coating with epoxy resin provides durable protection even if the surface is scratched.

STRONG FRAMING: In common with all other steel buildings, including even the largest sports stadia, retail superstores and warehouses, steel cladding sheets are surprisingly thin. The strength of steel buildings is provided by the frame, although the corrugations of the cladding sheets do provide a degree of extra strength. These metal sheds feature strong galvanized steel framing members and the completed frame is rigid.

DOOR SIZES - HEIGHT AND WIDTH: The door height listed above is the approximate head clearance height. The actual clear height of the opening is approximately 1" or 25mm less due to the door threshold. The approximate door opening width listed above is the minimum clearance which is safe to use when considering whether to purchase this building. We recommend allowing at least another 3" or 75mm all round any large objects to ensure easy access on a regular basis. In practice the actual opening width may be a few inches wider if the doors are set up with care.

SIZES - DEPTH AND WIDTH: Sizes are sometimes rounded to the nearest nominal size for ease of reading but the correct external sizes are listed alongside the price. The sizes listed alongside the prices are the external roof sizes. The external wall sizes may be smaller. The first dimension listed is the width and the second dimension is the depth. The width refers to the angled gable walls at the front and rear including the door wall. The depth refers to the side walls. All sizes are approximate.


  • Installation service - requires a pre-prepared flat and level base
  • A choice of no floor or a timber frame floor consisting of 9mm thick OSB and pressure treated 35x28mm beams
  • Base anchor kit
  • Solar powered lights
  • Padlocks

NO FLOOR: This building can be built without a floor if it is placed directly onto concrete, paving slabs or decking. This is normally the cheapest option if a suitable area of existing hardstanding is available. If so, we recommend that the pre-drilled galvanized steel foundation rails are fixed into your base.

BASE ANCHOR KIT: An anchor kit is recommended for any metal building which is subject to frequent use or sited in an exposed area. This kit is ideally suited for fixing directly to a solid slab or concrete base. Each kit contains heavy duty galvanized steel corner brackets and perimeter clips which fit over the foundation rails. Ground anchor bolts are used for fixing into the base. Full instructions and a masonry drill bit are included.

SOLAR POWERED LIGHTS: These ingenious and affordable solar powered lights are easy to install with no mains wiring and they cost nothing to run. During the day the externally mounted solar panel converts daylight into electricity and recharges the batteries. The solar panel is weatherproof and suitable for outside use. It is normally positioned high on the walls of your garden shed or on the roof. Our solar internal lights solve the problem of seeing inside your garden shed at night. Our solar security lights illuminate the approach to your garden shed at night and may also deter burglars. After dusk the passive infra red movement detector switches itself on when it detects movement. The more expensive solar lights are brighter and stay on for longer.
