This is a very high quality shed for the price. A key feature is the skylight that runs across the top of the building. Crafted from polycarbonate to protect the interior from UV rays.

Let's Take a Closer Look...

Shed type and roof and size

Palram Skylight 6' and 4' Fronted Apex Plastic Garden Shed - Roof and Air VentsThis is a windowless security shed that can also be used as a potting shed. The building has been made from plastic and measures up at 124 cm wide and 194 cm in depth. Internally, things don’t change as regards dimensions,

The building has an apex roof and this does a lot in the way of protecting the interior from rainwater. The rainwater simply runs off, but in addition to that you also have the fact that the apex roof affords a little more head room in the middle of the building.

But the building has a little extra in a skylight feature that works through the roof. Polycarbonate panels are fitted here, and these allow in excellent amounts of daylight. This means that you don’t have to worry about a window or any other ventilation aspect (although there are other aspects here) and that makes it a perfect security shedd too. Safe and secure, this building benefits massively from the skylight impact.

The polycarbonate in that skylight stops UV rays from entering the building too. This means the interior is protected from these rays, and you also get added protection for the building itself. The skylight is also opaque externally, so there is absolute privacy.

We feel the skylight is the key selling feature of this shed, and is a real asset.

Cladding and frame and floor

Palram Skylight 6' and 4' Fronted Apex Plastic Garden Shed - Easy AccessThere are steel framing components included in this build. On top of that you also get galvanised steel,so you have even more protection against rainwater. This means you have a tougher frame all round, giving you more peace of mind. We were pleased to see this level of quality going into these aspects of the building.

The door frame has aluminum beneath, so you get the maximum benefit of the strength this material brings.

Otherwise, polycarbonate panels are the main feature in the build. These stop UV rays from causing cracking and peeling, and do a very good job of ensuring that the building has a long life.

A floor is supplied, and has been made using the same resin and polycarbonate structure.

Treatment requirement and warranty

Palram Skylight 6' and 4' Fronted Apex Plastic Garden Shed - Floor SupportThis is the good news. Since the entire structure has polycarbonate, and the steel and other metals are galvanized, the shed is completely maintenance free. This is another key aspect of the value the building supplies.

Doors and windows

Palram Skylight 6' and 4' Fronted Apex Plastic Garden Shed - Storge BikeNo window is included due to its function as a security shed. The door is high quality, and opens up to 59 cm wide.

Security and privacy

Palram Skylight 6' and 4' Fronted Apex Plastic Garden Shed - LockableIt is a shed that has no window, so you have immediate security here. Thieves will simply not be tempted to look inside. In addition, you can purchase and fit your own padlock if you feel you need to.

We were impressed with the price, and seeing that there is reinforced steel underneath the already formidable polycarbonate made us feel this was deserving of top marks for quality.

The build quality is super, and the manufacturer is to be applauded for all the good work that has gone into the long life aspect.
Storage Size 9/10
90% Complete
It is reasonably big, and you can quite easily store tools in the shed, as well as possibly bikes if you organise it well enough. But obviously, size is a factor if you want something bigger.
Ease Of Installation 10/10
100% Complete
It isn't too difficult to install but we do recommend that two people take on the job.
Value For Money 9/10

Good value. The skylight makes a difference. But if you want more space, you will have to buy something else.

Overall Score
Final Thoughts: Excellent price for what is a very good shed. We liked the skylight, and we especially like the fact that it is built to last.
