Shed Type and Roof Size
This is an extraordinarily strong and secure metal motorcycle storage shed which benefits from a very attractive style. The building features an apex roof with a unique twist. The top of the roof features a solid, pointed design which really capture your attention. This roof isn’t just there for aesthetic purposes however. It is used because it is extremely efficient at draining rainwater, preventing the risk of corrosion and rust. It also gives the inside of the garage a much taller design. So you can ride your motorcycle in and out of the building without bumping your head.
The eaves of this garage measure 1.76m high, while the roof measures 2.03m high. The doors open out to the edge of the building, measuring 1.42m in width and 1.69m in height. The width of the garage is 1.58m and the depth is 2.74m. So it’s a fairly compact building considering the amount of storage space provided.
Cladding Frame and Floor
The panels of this building are made from heavy, thick, gauge steel. It has been hot dipped and galvanised for ultimate durability and rust resistance. One of the best things about the design of this garage is that it has been tested to see exactly how durable it is against a crowbar. It passed with flying colours, giving you fantastic reassurance that thieves won’t be able to break in through the metal.
We like that this garage comes with a full, robust metal base. Not only does this give you more flexibility in terms of where you can assemble the garage, but it also protects against damp and is strong enough to hold the weight of your bike.
Everything about this building is solid and secure, with a fantastic metal frame supporting the entire structure. There is no chance the building will blow over or droop over time.
Treatment Requirements and Warranty
We’re happy to say this garage doesn’t come with any treatment requirements. After it has been fully assembled, you don’t need to apply any preservatives or paint. One of the main benefits of this is the money you will save over time. Treatments can be expensive and whilst this isn’t the largest garage on the market, it would still cost a lot in regular treatments. There’s also the hassle free element to consider. It’s refreshing to see a building which allows you to simply enjoy it without worrying about annual maintenance.
It comes complete with a 10 year anti-rust warranty. So you can be sure it will withstand everyday wear and tear for at least a decade.
Doors and Windows
We like the fact this garage has been designed with really wide doors. Unlike a lot of buildings, the doors on this one actually open out to the edge of the garage. They are located at either end so that you have the maximum amount of access to safely drive your bike in and out. They are also reinforced just like the main panels and hinges, making them practically impossible for anybody to break into.
As the garage is built with motorcycle storage in mind, it does not come with any windows. This means thieves won’t be as tempted to try to break in as they won’t be able to see what’s inside. Windows can also be broken so the fact this doesn’t have any further adds to its anti-theft benefits. You also don’t need to worry about a lack of natural lighting and ventilation. This great Asgard model contains both integrated ventilation panels and an electrical mounting plate. So condensation and lack of natural lighting won’t be a problem.
Security and Privacy
If there’s one thing we rate over everything else, it is the security featured with this building. You would expect a garage to come with pretty tight security features anyway, but the manufacturer has taken its security measures to the next level with this model. The most noteworthy security feature included with the garage is its amazing 5-point locking system. This is both pick and drill resistant and has earned the garage approval from the UK Locksmith Association. There’s also the fact that it is resistant to crowbar damage. All in all you have a building that is virtually impossible to break into.
We’ve already mentioned the fact that it doesn’t come with windows and this is an excellent privacy feature.
Customisation Options and Extras
There are a few notable extras you can buy for this garage. Included in the cost you receive a hook rail which can be installed internally on the left or the right hand side. This gives you the option to hang your leathers and helmets. If this isn’t enough hook space, you can invest in the Asgard metal shed hooks which come in packs of 5.
One extra that isn’t essential but we do recommend is the Universal access ramp. This makes it incredibly easy to just drive your bike in or out of the garage. If you plan on storing bungee cords or tools in the garage you will also find the Asgard metal shed Universal eyelets a worthwhile investment. Each pack comes with 8 medium sized eyelets and 2 large ones, making them suitable for a variety of tools.
Asgard are known for creating some of the highest quality outdoor buildings on the market and this is definitely no exception. Made from impeccable materials, the entire design of the garage has been made with quality in mind.
Longevity Of Materials 8.3/10
As treatments won’t be required in order to keep this building protected, the longevity the garage offers is fantastic. Backed with a 10 year anti-rust warranty, you won’t have to worry about general levels of daily wear and tear.
This isn’t the largest garage in the range, but it still provides plenty of space for one motorbike. The additional hook rail and rear mounted shelf also gives you extra space to store all of your biking essentials. Further hanging space can be added if you invest in the eyelet pack too.
Ease Of Installation 7.5/10
The only potential downside of the installation process is that the metal panels are very heavy. This makes them a little more difficult to position and will require at least 2 people. Despite its fairly compact size, it will also take around a day to put together. So these things do need to be considered.
The high cost can be off-putting, but what you really need to think about is the long term value for money you are receiving. You’re basically paying for peace of mind as this is by far one of the most secure bike sheds you can buy. The high quality, durable materials and zero need for treatments also makes it a more affordable building to invest in.
Final Thoughts: There aren’t many outdoor buildings that manage to impress us the way this motorcycle garage has. Its compact size is deceptive in terms of how much storage space it actually provides. It comes with excellent features and its security is especially worth the high cost. It also looks good which is always an advantage with metal buildings. Overall we do recommend this model and you’ll find when you add up all of its benefits, you are receiving fantastic value for money.
